Topic: The Grandeur of God
[DCLM Daily Manna 19 November 2019 Daily Devotional by Pastor William Folorunso Kumuyi]
Text: Psalm 93:1-5
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).
The Scottish theologian, John Baillie once taught at Edinburgh University. It was his practice to open his course on the doctrine of God with these words: “We must remember, in discussing God, that we cannot talk about Him without His hearing every word we say. We may be able to talk about others behind their backs, but God is everywhere, yes, even in this classroom. Therefore, in all our discussions we must be aware of His infinite presence, and talk about Him, as it were, before His face.”
The text today reveals the majesty of the Lord God. Whatever opposition may arise, His throne is unmoved; He has reigned, does reign, and will reign for ever and ever. Whatever turmoil and rebellion there may be beneath the clouds, the eternal King sits above all in supreme serenity. Everywhere, He is really Master of all and every situation. He sees all, hears all and does as He pleases. All things are ordered according to His eternal purposes and His will is supreme. God’s throne was established of old and He is from everlasting to everlasting. No human being on earth can truncate His eternal plan, purpose and programme. Pharaoh, Herod and Nebuchadnezzar all tried their best to alter the will and the way of God but they failed woefully. The testimony of our God is sure; therefore, no will or event on earth can run down God. He is Lord of all.
This knowledge of the almighty God should comfort the Christian. Whatever you may be passing through or is passing through you, surrender yourself unconditionally to God’s rule and let Him take control of your life and situation. Then you will discover that He is indeed clothed in majesty and mightier than the mighty sea!
