I was about to panic… then I read “God is the King of all the earth!”

King over all the earth

If you’re like me, there are some days when it just seems like world conditions are spinning out of control.  You’d think humankind was doing its very best to self-destruct!  The leadership crisis internationally is frightening!  It would be easy to panic or despair…Then as a Christian I read the following comforting words in the Bible this morning…

“Clap your hands, all peoples! Shout to God with loud songs of joy!  For the Lord, the Most High, is to be feared [reverenced], A GREAT KING OVER ALL THE EARTH… God has gone up with a shout, the Lord with the sound of a trumpet.  Sing praises to God, sing praises! Sing praises to our King, sing praises!  FOR GOD IS THE KING OF ALL THE EARTH; sing praises with a psalm!  GOD REIGNS OVER THE NATIONS; GOD SITS ON HIS HOLY THRONE…  The shields of the earth belong to God; He is highly exalted!  (From Psalm 47 ESV)
