Read Psalm 93:1-5
High and Mighty
Your throne was established long ago;
you are from all eternity.
What are you facing today? A demanding boss at work? An impenetrable clique at school? A depleting ailment in your body? An unsolvable problem in your finances? A looming disaster in your family?
What is the gathering storm in your life right now? It is pretty intimidating, I would imagine. Storms are like that. They rise up as if to consume you—“The seas have lifted up”; they dominate your world and color your entire view of life—“the seas have lifted up their voice”; they batter every fiber of your existence—“the seas have lifted up their pounding waves.” (Psalm 93:3)
But here’s the deal: God was there before your storm got started. He will be there long after your storm blows itself back into oblivion. It follows, therefore, that he will be with you as you ride out the storm. So look for him in the winds and the waves. Listen for his voice above the chaos. He is “mightier than the thunder of the great waters, mightier than the breakers of the sea—the LORD on high is mighty.” (Psalm 93:4)
No matter what the storm—small or big, you are not alone. There is One with you who is higher and mightier than your storm—so high and mighty that he makes your worst hurricane nothing more than a tempest in a teapot!
Got a storm? Make yourself a cup of tea just to remind the storm of Who’s in charge!
“There is a God in heaven who over-rules all things for the best;
and this is the comfort of my soul.”
