Hope from Psalm 93

Psalm 93 is short and full of hope for those who feel overwhelmed. Consider the picture the Psalmist paints in verses 3-4:

The waves roar, O LORD,
the waves roar,
the waves roar and crash.
Above the sound of the surging water,
and the mighty waves of the sea,
the LORD sits enthroned in majesty.

Psalm 93:3-4, NET

Are the waves of life roaring and crashing around you? Look up! Above the noise, above the waves Yahweh sits enthroned. Our God, who has set His love on us, isn’t frantically pacing in front of His throne. No, He is seated on His majestic throne. Our God, our Sovereign King is in control – even the wind and the waves obey His voice.

Today, tomorrow, next week – when the waves of life come crashing look up and remember the One who sits enthroned!
