THE STORY OF JESUS: Psalm 93
“The Lord reigns… indeed, the world is established, firm and secure.” (Psalm 93:1)
In Jewish thinking, the earth was established on the waters (Genesis 1:2,6-10).
The waters were beneath and above the earth (Genesis 7:11-12, Psalm 148:4).
When the seas lifted up (v.3), the earth ought to be in peril.
But the Lord is mightier than the seas (v.4), therefore the earth is secure.
For Jews, water (seas, rivers or rain) symbolized the power of darkness.
Passing through sea and river, surviving the storm, were signs of God’s care.
No matter how the darkness raged and stormed, the Lord still reigns.
What a great reflection for this weekend – good Friday and resurrection Sunday!
All hell broke lose on the cross, but Jesus survived the storm.
Because of His victory over the storm, we also declare ‘the Lord reigns!’
What is your storm, how is life raging against you, where are you drowning?
Do not let the storm convince you it is more powerful than God.
See Jesus walking on the stormy waves, and reach out to Him.
Step into the waters with your eyes on Jesus, and you will be secure as well!
What do you sense the Lord saying to you?
Lord, You walked on water, turned water into wine, slept during the storm at sea, and commanded the waters to be still. With You as the captain of my ship, I shall be established, firm and secure!
