I wish I had a video replete with great sound effects for today’s post! A number of years ago I lived in Longview, Washington 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! (Watch and listen to the YouTube video… Turn up the sound!)
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… 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, and let it truth of it sink in again today!
