One God for all!

“The Lord reigns, let the nations tremble… let the earth shake.” (Psalm 99:1)
This psalm celebrates the greatness of God, as Israel knows Him.
A mighty God, a just God, a God of equity (v.4).
A God that hears, a God that knows, a God that cares.
This in contrast to the gods of the other nations.
This great God is not just a local, tribal god, great among its own people.
The God of Israel is really the God of creation, the God of all people.
There is only one God, though there are many different ideas about God.
Some of those ideas (religions) propose many gods, but there is still only one God.
Though not everyone believes in a supreme being, most people do.
God does not belong to Christianity, or Islam, or Judaism.
God is not restricted to to a few people, or a few places.
This great God entered time through Jesus, because He loved the world.
This universal God expresses universal love through Jesus’ universal sacrifice.
So that “all the nations” can “praise Your great and awesome name”! (vv.2-3)
What do you sense the Lord saying to you?
Lord, You have shown us God’s love for all people, all places. You now reign on our behalf, with all authority in heaven and on earth. Great and awesome is Your Name!

  1. God reigns.
    Let all that breathes praise Him.
    Listen to Him. Hear His voice.
    He continues to lead and guide.
    Call upon Him.
    See His faithfulness to His people.
    He forgives
    if we/I just call upon His name.
    Walk wit Him in His SonShine.

    1 Grace and truth shall mark the way
    Where the Lord His own will lead,
    If His word they still obey
    And His testimonies heed.

    2 For Thy Name’s sake hear Thou me,
    For Thy mercy, Lord, I wait;
    Pardon my iniquity,
    For my sin is very great.

    3 He who walks in godly fear
    In the pat of truth shall go;
    Peace shall be his portion here,
    And his sons all good shall know.

    4 They that fear and love the Lord
    Shall Jehovah’s friendship know;
    He will grace to them accord,
    And His faithful covenant show.
