Great and Mighty

Today's reading: Psalm 97:1-12

The incredible power, strength and might of God immediately came across to me as I began reading Psalm 97. Literally every verse contained at least one description or piece of information about God, and it all served to focus my attention on God's greatness. I definitely came away from my reading with a more complete picture of the incredible God we serve.

Take a couple of minutes and list out what you saw or learned about God from Psalm 97. Other than great and mighty, what are some words that you would use to describe God based on this psalm? Tami

Take a couple of minutes and list out what you saw or learned about God from Psalm 97.

vs. 7 "All worshipers of images are put to shame,
who make their boast in worthless idols;
worship him, all you gods!"
vs.9b "you are exalted far above all gods."

These ancient people had gods representing the clouds,sky,moon,sun,volcanoes,lightning,thunder,mountains,river and others which were man-made using God's creation to form them!!
We see in this Psalms 97 that God has complete control of all of His Creation and has the power to over all of the earth and sky!

The believer has hope for eternity knowing God is in control and that all things work together for good to them that love Him and call upon His Name. ( Rom. 8:28)

Other than great and mighty, what are some words that you would use to describe God based on this psalm?
Supreme One,omnipotent,Divine, Holy,Righteous,Light and Lord The Exalted One,Most High God,Creator, Majestic, and Sovereign,King !

I accidentally press "enter" and I was not finished.

The Lord is the source of our joy!

C. H. Spurgeon (The Treasury of David [Baker], 4:360) cites the story of a man named Whitelock, who was Oliver Cromwell’s envoy to Sweden in 1653. One night as he was waiting to sail, he was so distracted by the troubles of the nation that he could not sleep. His assistant, in an adjacent bed, finally said to him, “Sir, may I ask you a question?” “Of course,” said Whitelock.

“Sir, do you think God governed the world very well before you came into it?”


“And sir, do you think that He will govern it quite as well when you are gone out of it?”


“Then, sir, excuse me, but do you not think you may trust him to govern it quite as well while you are living?”

Whitelock had no answer to this question, but he rolled over and soon went to sleep.

Do you believe that the Lord reigns, not only over the world, but also in your life? If so, rejoice and be glad in Him!

I was blessed by it and wanted to share it from Steven J. Cole
"Even though gladness is promised in verse 11, it is still commanded in verse 12. It’s not automatic. As John Piper writes, we have to fight for joy. Don’t miss that our gladness is “in the Lord.” He is the source of our joy. And that joy is only for the righteous, those who walk in obedience to Him. The last phrase is literally, “give thanks for the memory of His holiness.” (The same phrase occurs in Ps. 30:4, which refers to Exod. 3:15.) When we think on the Lord, the thing that should come to mind is His holiness. That would cause us to shrink back, except for the fact that we find acceptance in His holy presence through the blood of His Son Jesus."

It reminds me of Gods promises and mercies. We need to fill our selves daily with Gods Word and righteousness if we are to thrive as fallowers of Christ.
