He Reigns

Psalm 97

Psalm 97 starts out with these words, "The Lord reigns" and the subtitle in my Bible (maybe yours too?) for this chapter also reads "The Lord Reigns." So we know right away what this entire chapter is about and we see a number of examples and descriptions of the Lord's strength, power, might and rule.

Psalm 97 prompted me to spend a little time thinking about the Lord reigning and what that means and looks like for me. Here are some of my thoughts: There's no doubt that the Lord is in control of my life. He's God and I am not. But the Lord reigning means so much more. First off, I want the Lord to reign in my life. But for that to be the case, I must recognize Him for who He is, willingly submit and then strive to follow and serve Him fully each day. That's a tall order and there are plenty of days I fall short. Maybe that's why we have new days--to give us a fresh start. There is nothing more peaceful, more satisfying, more confirming than to look back at the end of day and know that, today the Lord reigned in me.

So what does the Lord reigning mean to you and your life? Any examples you want to share? Tami

10 O you who love the LORD, hate evil

Defined by His Word.

Reigning being a synonym for ruling, if the Lord is to reign in our lives, He must have all of us--all our plans, hopes, and dream, all that we are or will ever be must be submitted to His control.

When I think of The Lord reigning I am reminded that no matter how things look in the natural, there is always hope. God has the last word on ANY and ALL situations. It doesn't matter how impossible the result you want seems. It doesn't matter how high the mountain. Once it is God's will the mountain that seemed so huge will melt like wax--the answer will come in God's perfect timing.

Well,I used to think that I could control everything and found out, when my husband became paralyzed that I do not have control, but God does.
