THE ESTABLISHED WORLD OF GOD

In Psalm 93/1 we read, ‘The world is firmly established; it cannot be moved.’Verse 2 goes on to, ‘Your throne was established long ago; you are from all eternity.’ Then, the ocean is compared in this way, ‘The seas have lifted up  their  voice,  the  seas  have  lifted  up  their  pounding  waves, mightier than  the  thunder of  the  great  waters.’ The kingdom of God and his earth ‘cannot be moved’. All on the earth is his, his people, his animals, his pastures and  all  of  nature.

Psalm  95 -In  his hand  are  the  depths  of  the  earth and  the mountain peaks  belong  to  him. The sea is his for he  made it and his hands formed the dry land…..for he is our God and we are the people of his pasture, the flock under  his  care.  Have  you  absorbed  how  often  the  word of God includes earth’s wonders in scripture?  From psalm  96,‘Let the heavens rejoice, let  the earth  be  glad,  let  the  sea  resound  and  all  that  is  in  it,let the fields  be jubilant  and  everything  in  them. Then  all  the  trees of  the forest will sing with  joy. The Lord  reigns, let  the earth  be  glad,  let  the distant  shores rejoice.  Clouds and thick darkness surround him….fire goes before him…his lightning lights up the world…the mountains  melt  like  wax before  the  Lord, before  the  Lord  of ALL the  earth’.

What images we read in Psalm 104, ‘He wraps himself in light as with a garment, stretches out the heavens like a tent and  lays  the  beams  of  his upper  chamber  on  their  waters. He makes the clouds his chariot and rides on the wings of the wind.’Another affirmation in Verse five reads, ‘He set the earth  on  its foundations,it  can never  be  moved’. Does that  mean not  even  by earthquakes,  tidal waves, natural  disasters, wars, floods, famine,  fire  or drought?  Nor sin?Yes,believers,he has established  the  earth for  us  with constancy  and consistency to the end of our days.

Psalm 105, Verse 31-‘May the glory of the Lord endure all my life. Give thanks to the Lord.

Be Blessed
