Day 23 – Psalm 93
1 The Lord reigns; He is robed in majesty;
the Lord is robed; He has put on strength as His belt.
Yes, the world is established; it shall never be moved.
2 Your throne is established from of old;
You are from everlasting.
3 The floods have lifted up, O Lord,
the floods have lifted up their voice;
the floods lift up their roaring.
4 Mightier than the thunders of many waters,
mightier than the waves of the sea,
the Lord on high is mighty!
5 Your decrees are very trustworthy;
holiness befits Your house,
O Lord, forevermore.
Prayer of Reflection:
“Lord God, You are worthy to be praised. You reign over all the earth. What a privilege it is to be in prayer with You. When I think of You as the creator of all things, I am in awe of the fact that You desire to have a relationship with me.
“Thank you that I am Your child and You are preparing a holy house for me. You are from everlasting to everlasting. You existed in eternity past and I will live with You and praise You in eternity future. I know this because You sent Your Son to earth, to suffer and die for my sin. As my Savior, He rose from the dead with all power in His hands.
“Thank you, God, for that power. This lifeboat that I am on is often shaky. The floods pitch it to and fro and even threaten to breach its small borders. But fear is not an option. When I fill overwhelmed, and I often do, I think of Your strength. The Psalms say You are belted with strength. Your strength is my strength. When the noise of thunderous waters tries to drown out Your voice Lord, help me to be still and sensitive to Your Spirit within me. You will lead me out of troubled times. You are mightier than even the biggest waves because the Scripture says greater is He that is in me than he that is in the World.
“Thank you that Your testimonies are true and steadfast because You are a Holy God who cannot lie. Your house is filled with Your holy presence, just as my body is filled with Your Holy Spirit; what a power laden truth that calms my floods. Help me to be overwhelmed by You and not the world around me. I love You, Lord. You are worthy to be praised, now and forevermore.”
