Meditations in the Psalms
This psalm praises the greatness of God, not only over the nations and kingdoms of this world, but over His universe. It is so important for those who love the Lord to remember His power and greatness and to praise Him – our problems, difficulties, and stresses in life, can sometimes seem overwhelming. Usually, at those times, we are neglecting to remember what God can do!
- The rebuke of the Lord of the nations – verses 30-31
- The response which the Lord desires – verse 32
- The riding of God upon the heavens – verse 33
- The recognition of His strength – verses 34-35
The end of the chapter says it all – “Blessed be God.” We are reminded that it is the God of all strength Who “giveth strength and power unto His people.” Praise Him, and definitely trust Him to do what we cannot do.
