The Lord is mightier

The LORD reigns, He is clothed with majesty; The LORD is clothed, He has girded Himself with strength. Surely the world is established, so that it cannot be moved. Your throne is established from of old; You are from everlasting. The floods have lifted up, O LORD, The floods have lifted up their voice; The floods lift up their waves. The LORD on high is mightier Than the noise of many waters, Than the mighty waves of the sea. Your testimonies are very sure; Holiness adorns Your house, O LORD, forever.  – Psalm 93.1-5

There are times when the opposition seems mighty mighty. Things are changing at an amazing pace and it is hard tell heads from tails. The forces of evil seem stronger and stronger and stronger and eviler and eviler and eviler.

We could easily despair if we a looking around at newspapers and news feeds. It doesn’t seem like there is any hope.

But then we are reminded of the great truths here. The Lord still reigns. He has girded Himself with majesty and nothing can happen to His world because He created and established it. He is mightier than all the powers on earth.

Our God is mightier than any politician or leader or government or economy or media source. Nothing can ever overrule His might.
There is nothing too hard for our God. There is nothing stronger than He is. He is mightier that the world. He is mightier than the devil. He is mightier than my flesh. Greater is He that is in me than He that is in the world.

Don’t despair. We still serve the Lord God omnipotent who still reigns.
