DCLM Daily Manna 2023: DCLM Daily Manna 19 November 2023: How Great Thou Art
KEY VERSE: “The LORD on high is mightier than the noise of many waters, yea, than the mighty waves of the sea.” – (Psalm 93:4)
TEXT: Psalm 93:1-5 (KJV)
The Lord reigneth, he is clothed with majesty; the Lord is clothed with strength, wherewith he hath girded himself: the world also is stablished, that it cannot be moved.
2 Thy throne is established of old: thou art from everlasting.
3 The floods have lifted up, O Lord, the floods have lifted up their voice; the floods lift up their waves.
4 The Lord on high is mightier than the noise of many waters, yea, than the mighty waves of the sea.
5 Thy testimonies are very sure: holiness becometh thine house, O Lord, for ever.
People often use the word ‘great’ to describe certain persons, events, situations and places. It is used in different ways. For instance, we have great lakes, great plains, great expectations, etc. and each time people ask how you are doing, you often respond, “I’m great.” While we use the word ‘great’ a lot, only God is truly great. When we compare everything to Him, there is nothing that is as great as Him. He is great in a way that is beyond what we can fathom or comprehend.
Our text speaks of God, the Creator of heaven and earth, who reigns in majesty, clothed with strength. He established the world and controls it that it cannot be moved by anyone or anything. God is Omnipotent. He has power to order circumstances and change situations to align with His plans. His throne is established from old; He is everlasting. The floods and seas lift their voices to praise Him. He is mightier than many waters and the waves of the sea.
The finite man cannot comprehend the infinite God. He is the Ancient of days. Time, location or space cannot hinder Him from doing whatever He chooses to do. Both in heaven and on earth, He remains God. Everything in heaven and earth declares His glory and bows before Him. He is in charge of the creations and nothing moves without His approval. God wants believers to make Him all we ever want or need. This means that when we are sick, we make Him our Healer; when we are helpless, we embrace Him as Helper; when we are oppressed, we depend on Him as Deliverer. He wants us to make Him our everything, as He reigns majestically over the heaven and earth.
THOUGHT OF THE DAY: God reigns; let the earth tremble.
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Ezekiel 29-31
