Summary: IN THE ARENA OF NATIONS, GOD IS THE KING OF CAPTURE THE FLAG

BIG IDEA:

IN THE ARENA OF NATIONS, GOD IS THE KING OF CAPTURE THE FLAG

RESPONSE: JOIN IN SINGING THE WORLD ANTHEM (not just the National Anthem) OF:

"ALL PRAISE TO HIM WHO REIGNS ABOVE IN MAJESTY SUPREME"

(Blessed Be the Name)

INTRODUCTION:

Remember the game: Capture the Flag

In the realm of earthly kingdoms, God will ultimately prove victorious as:

"a great King over all the earth"

"for the shields of the earth belong to God"

Looks forward to the Messianic Kingdom as God once again exalts the Jewish nation,

and all the other nations of the earth bow in submission to the reign of the Messiah from

the throne of David

I. (:1-4) GET EXCITED ABOUT THE REIGN OF GOD

A. (:1) Excited Enough to Set Aside All Inhibitions and Express Our Joy

1. "Clap your hands"

2. "Shout to God with the voice of joy"

B. (:2) Excited Because the King of all the Earth is Awesome

"the Lord Most High is to be feared"

C. (:3) Excited Because the King of the Nations Has Made His People Victorious

nothing like victory to get people all excited

D. (:4) Excited Because the Reign of God Means a Rich Inheritance for Us

II. (:5-9) SING PRAISES TO THE ONE WHO REIGNS OVER THE NATIONS

A. (:5-7) His Reign Begins With His Victorious Ascension

B. (:8-9) His Reign Extends From His Holy Throne

CONCLUSION:

"His name shall be the Counselor, The mighty Prince of Peace,

Of all earth’s kingdoms Conqueror, Whose reign shall never cease."

DEVOTIONAL QUESTIONS:

1) Since “God is the King of all the earth” (“a great king” – vs. 2), how should this help to break down ethnic and nationalistic barriers to the spread of the gospel?

2) If we are commanded to “Sing praises with a skillful psalm” (vs. 7), (NIV: “sing thoughtful praises”), how can we make sure that both our emotions and our intellect are engaged in the process of worship? To emphasize one to the exclusion of the other

would be a serious mistake.

3) What aspects of God’s sovereignty are stressed in this psalm? Have we submitted all of our life to His Lordship?

4) How can we encourage others by reminding them that God has reserved His choicest blessings for those who love Him (vs. 4)?
