MIGHT AND MAJESTY

OBSERVATION: THE PSALMIST REFLECTS UPON THE MIGHT AND MAJESTY OF GOD.

INTERPRETATION:

PSALMS 114:7 (NKJV) TREMBLE, O EARTH, AT THE PRESENCE OF THE LORD, AT THE PRESENCE OF THE GOD OF JACOB.

POINTS TO PONDER:

THE JEWS USED THIS PSALM DURING THE DIFFICULT POST-EXILIC DAYS WHEN THE WORK WAS DIFFICULT AND DANGEROUS. GRAPHIC WORD PICTURES DEPICTED GOD LEADING ISRAEL OUT OF EGYPTIAN BONDAGE TOWARD THE PROMISE LAND. THE LORD TAUGHT THEM GROWTH IN FAITH AND TRUST.

1 CHRONICLES 29:11 (NKJV) YOURS, O LORD, IS THE GREATNESS, THE POWER AND THE GLORY, THE VICTORY AND THE MAJESTY; FOR ALL THAT IS IN HEAVEN AND IN EARTH IS YOURS; YOURS IS THE KINGDOM, O LORD, AND YOU ARE EXALTED AS HEAD OVER ALL.

THE PRIMARY PURPOSE OF THE JERUSALEM TEMPLE WAS TO EXALT JEHOVAH GOD AND ACKNOWLEDGE HIS UNIVERSAL KINGDOM: KING DAVID MODELED WORSHIP TOWARD THAT END.

PSALMS 21:13 (NKJV) BE EXALTED, O LORD, IN YOUR OWN STRENGTH! WE WILL SING AND PRAISE YOUR POWER.

DAVID KNEW GOD HAD THE SUPREME, ULTIMATE MIGHT, MAJESTY, AUTHORITY AND POWER. CHRIST’S EARTHLY MINISTRY MANIFESTS THAT REALITY. MATTHEW 28:18 (NKJV) AND JESUS CAME AND SPOKE TO THEM, SAYING, ALL AUTHORITY HAS BEEN GIVEN TO ME IN HEAVEN AND ON EARTH. AUTHORITY CONVEYS THE REALITY OF HIS POWER!

APPLICATION: JOB 37: 23 (THE BOOK) WE CANNOT IMAGINE THE POWER OF THE ALMIGHTY, YET HE IS SO JUST AND MERCIFUL THAT HE DOES NOT OPPRESS US. GOOD NEWS, BELIEVERS!
