God reigns over the nations; God is seated on His holy throne. – (Psalm 47:8, NIV)
God sits on His holy throne, He rules all the nations. – (Psalm 47:8, ERV)
Our God reigns over every nation. He reigns on His holy throne over all. – (Psalm 47:8, TPT)
This is what we have to remember, even when the world around us seems to be in turmoil. God is still good, and He is in charge. The One who made heaven and earth is more than able to see us through trying times. Though it is difficult to understand why the world is the way it is right now, with God, we can trust that His presence will never leave us, and His plans and purposes will come to pass. Each new day we must choose to trust in He who is greater than anything that is in the world. Some days it is easier than others. May we seek first, His kingdom, for in Him and through Him all things exist.
Above all nations,
The Lord God, He reigns;
He is who He claims.
Despite what we see,
His word’s always true;
Throughout each trial,
He’s making things new.
Choose hold onto hope,
And look to His throne;
He’ll strengthen and lead,
‘til we make it home.
Dear Heavenly Father, thank You that You are on Your throne over the nations, as You are ultimately the One in control. Forgive us for losing heart when we look around and see the state of the world today. Teach us to trust You and Your plan and follow wherever and however You lead. Show us how to love those around us best, in ways that make Your heart known. May many come into a lasting relationship with You. Be glorified O God, as we trust You to rule and reign, even when we cannot see how You are working. Amen.
Let the heavens rejoice, let the earth be glad; let them say among the nations, “The Lord reigns!” – 1 Chronicles 16:31
