Psalm 93 is a short but powerful psalm that declares the power and authority of God. When we encounter uncertainty in our circumstances, it is worth meditating on the majesty of God. This psalm opens with the clear announcement that the Lord reigns. He doesn’t just reign over a small kingdom or province, but his authority extends over the Earth. It is not a temporary kingship, verse two tells us that his throne was established from time immemorial and from the everlasting past (NLT).  

So why is this important when the world seems to be out of control? It brings us back into a place of peace, knowing that circumstances are temporary, but God is not. The storm that threatened to capsize the boat that Jesus’ friends were on was temporary, although it seemed overwhelming at the time. Jesus demonstrated his authority in the moment when he simply declared “Peace, be still.”  This story can be found in Mark 4:37-41.  

Whatever your circumstances may be, I invite you to bring them under the authority of our everlasting Father in heaven. You may not feel like you are being heard, but God is “above the roar of many waters” (Psalm 93:4). He hears your prayers and as the testimony of your life unfolds, it confirms the majesty of God to all who know you. 

The Majesty of the Lord
