When everything around you seems to be unraveling… Nations are in turmoil! There is a severe leadership crisis… Institutions you’ve depending upon are failing… The economy is in crisis… Values you’ve depended upon are dismantled and abandoned… even friends fail… And you are about to panic… You need to read Psalm 97!!! (I read it during “Coffee with the Lord” this morning… Glad I did!!!)
Here is a taste of what it says…
“The Lord reigns, let the earth rejoice; let the many coastlands be glad! … Righteousness and justice are the foundation of His throne… before the Lord of all the earth. The heavens proclaim his righteousness, and all the peoples see his glory… For you, O Lord, are most high over all the earth; you are exalted far above all gods. O you who love the Lord, hate evil! He preserves the lives of his saints; he delivers them from the hand of the wicked. Light is sown for the righteous, and joy for the upright in heart. Rejoice in the Lord, O you righteous, and give thanks to his holy name!” (From Psalm 97 ESV)
Given what is happening to human institutions today and the condition of our world… I really needed that!! How about you?
