Psalm 97: Ruler

Posted by on Jan 4, 2018 in Blog | 0 comments

Every ruler is eventually deposed, by vote or violence.

Every champion is victor for only a season; perhaps for an era if exceptional.

All dynasties come to the end of the line, relegated to the pages of history and an echo of societal significance.

Even nations and empires – seemingly invincible – come and go (slowly for sure), rising and falling per the ebb and flow of worldly power.

Such is the way of created things; subject to a will greater than our own.

The Lord reigns.

And He does so whether we believe it or not; whether we like it or not.

He is either our greatest rival or safest refuge depending upon our posture toward Him.

“Rejoice in the Lord … give thanks to His holy name.”
