Established From of Old

Psalm 93 talks about the eternal reign of the LORD.

The Lord reigns, He is clothed with majesty; The LORD is clothed, He has girded Himself with strength. Surely the world is established so that it cannot be moved, Your throne is established from of old; You are from everlasting. The floods have lifted up, O Lord, the floods have lifted up their voice; The floods lift up their waves. The LORD on high is mightier than the noise of many waters, than the mighty waves of the sea. Your testimonies are very sure; holiness adorns Your house, O LORD, forever.
"Clothed with majesty"..."throne is established"..."everlasting"..."Lord is mightier"..."testimonies are very sure"..."holiness adorns."

These are a few of the colorful phrases the Psalmist uses to describe the eternal reign of our Father. It is beautiful to meditate on the establishment of our LORD's kingdom! No matter what world power, or country, person or leader has been raised up to rule in the temporal world, HIS kingdom will prevail and HE will forever reign.

Many kingdom, peoples, sects and religions have been raised up, only to fall down again. They are waxing, waning, weak, strong, here today, gone tomorrow. But never forever. HIS kingdom is the only on that will stay strong, unmovable, unwavering throughout the seasons, years, decades, centuries and millenniums.
Your throne is established from of old. You are everlasting.
Who can prevail against Him? What person? What nation? What power? He alone is eternal and good, righteous and holy on His throne.

Today, I am secure. I am at peace in Your hands. Whatever waters arise, whatever waves lift up their voices - HE is mightier. And HE is mine.
