Psalm 97

The Lord Reigns!

We’ve had a few chapters of praises to God. ┬áBefore there were some psalms of laments scattered through, but here are a few praises in a row.

This one I sort of see a man standing on a high place declaring out loud for everyone.

1 The LORD reigns, let the earth be glad;
let the distant shores rejoice.
2 Clouds and thick darkness surround him;
righteousness and justice are the foundation of his throne.
3 Fire goes before him
and consumes his foes on every side.
4 His lightning lights up the world;
the earth sees and trembles.
5 The mountains melt like wax before the LORD,
before the Lord of all the earth.
6 The heavens proclaim his righteousness,
and all peoples see his glory

I see the strength and majesty of God declared here.  Nothing is able to stand up before God.
