He is King!

 1O clap your hands, all ye people; shout unto God with the voice of triumph.
 2For the LORD most high is terrible; he is a great King over all the earth.
 3He shall subdue the people under us, and the nations under our feet.
 4He shall choose our inheritance for us, the excellency of Jacob whom he loved. Selah. 

 He is King!
 1O clap your hands, all ye people; shout unto God with the voice of triumph.
 2For the LORD most high is terrible; he is a great King over all the earth.
What a glorious Psalm to read, especially in this 21st century, when it would seem that nothing is farther from the truth. As Christians, however, we need to be reminded that, no matter how things may appear, God is, indeed, King over all the earth.

The world as we know it today is not what it appears to be! It would seem that even the most Godly of all nations really only pay lip service to God. It appears as though man is truly sitting on his own throne, achieving greatness and glory in his own knowledge, evidenced by his continuing great achievements. Where is God in all of this?

How, then, can we believe the words of the Psalmist?
He shall subdue the people under us, and the nations under our feet.
How can God be silent at such a time as this? But, is God truly being silent? God is not held fast by man's timetable; His plan, which He established before time began, is continuing to move along exactly in the way He intended it to be. While we focus on our one little moment of time, God sees all of time as one great masterpiece. God, in His great long suffering, is giving time for all of His children to come to the knowledge of Him.

Make no mistake, when that last child has come to Him, time will cease! When everything has been accomplished, just as He planned, Christ will return. Then, yes, we will see that He is King! All the nations will be subdued under His feet.

Then, the inheritance that He has chosen for His children will be given to them; an inheritance that will last forever! No wonder the Psalmist encourages us to clap our hands and to shout unto God with the voice of triumph. Though the end has not yet come, God has already triumphed over sin, death, and hell forever!

This, dear child of God, is the God we serve, and yes, He is King!

God Bless You,
