I wish I had an adequate video replete with great sound effects for today’s post (I hope what I provided a link for helps 😉! I pastored in Longview, Washington for several years near the ocean… We would slip over to Cannon Beach, Oregon, go to Ecola State Park near there, and watch the waves crash against the rocks. The scene and sounds were especially spectacular just before an approaching storm. You’d just find yourself standing there is awe at the majesty and strength of the ocean waves!
That scene recreated itself in my mind as I read the following words from Psalm 93 this morning… “The Lord is king! He is robed in majesty. Indeed, the Lord is robed in majesty and armed with strength… Your throne, O Lord, has stood from time immemorial. You Yourself are from the everlasting past. THE FLOODS HAVE ROARED LIKE THUNDER; THE FLOODS HAVE LIFTED THEIR POUNDING WAVES. BUT MIGHTIER THAN THE VIOLENT RANGING OF THE SEAS, MIGHTIER THAN THE BREAKERS ON THE SHORE – THE LORD ABOVE IS MIGHTIER THAN THESE!”
Phrases like, “Our God is an awesome God” and “Nothing is too hard for the Lord” and “Almighty God” come to mind, don’t they? Perhaps I just need to close my eyes, relive the scene and sounds of the pounding waves of the ocean, and let it truth of it sink in again today!
