Short and to the Point

10 Jul

This is a wonderful song of praise.  I can’t ever remember reading this psalm, but it is beautiful.  The writers speaks of God’s power and might and ruling presence. The imagine that is used is water.  Considering the effects that water has had on a number of areas in our country this psalm may not effect everyone the way it does me.

1-2 God is King, robed and ruling,
God is robed and surging with strength.

And yes, the world is firm, immovable,
Your throne ever firm—you’re Eternal!

Sea storms are up, God,
Sea storms wild and roaring,
Sea storms with thunderous breakers.

Stronger than wild sea storms,
Mightier than sea-storm breakers,
Mighty God rules from High Heaven.

What you say goes—it always has.
“Beauty” and “Holy” mark your palace rule,
God, to the very end of time.

No matter how floods or storms have effected individuals this is a song of assurance and praise.  The Divine presence has brought into being a wonderful creation – our planet can fill us with awe.  Yet, as with much of our lives, it is never predictable.  The promise is, in the midst of the most difficult storms of life God is there.  Yea! 🙂
