It is a dangerous thing to rebel against God. Those who rebel against God have no chance of winning.
For over ten years, I’ve signed every blog post I’ve ever written with the phrase “Walk with the King.” I love the term “King” because it elevates God to the place he deserves.
Our God is the King of Kings! He is robed in majesty. He is strong, mighty and supreme over all creation. He has all authority, all sovereignty, all power, and all dominion! He is magnificent, beautiful, supreme in his splendor and none compares to him.
Oh that we would grasp how awesome our God really is!
Then we would not doubt.
Then we would fully trust in Him.
Then He would be our strength.
Then we would draw near to him day and night.
Then we would love and adore him as he deserves.
Then we would open His Word and bask in the pleasure of it.
Then we would fall on our knees in prayer before his throne, knowing we have a God who sees and hears and loves us deeply.
–And then we would warn those who rebel against God, that they have no chance of winning.
Dear Lord, gives us eyes to see you as you really are today.
Psalm 93 – The Lord Reigns
93 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.
As we look at Psalm 93 we learn 10 things about our King of Kings:
1.) Our Lord reigns. (v.1)
There is none higher than our God in all the earth! He is at the tippy top of all the ranking of kings and gods.
2.) Our Lord is robed in majesty. (v.1)
When a king put on his robe it symbolized his power and grandeur. Our Lord’s robe is His majesty.
3.) Our Lord established the world and it will never be moved. (v.1)
Our God is the genius creator of this world – we did not evolve and we are not here by chance. Our Lord established the world and it will never be moved…unless he moves it.
4.) His throne is unchallenged through the ages. (v.2)
He was King from creation and though many kings will rise and fall, he will remain the King of Kings forever.
5.) Our Lord is from everlasting. (v.2)
His throne is established above and beyond eternity. He has no beginning and He has no end. There was never a time when he did not reign and there will never be a time when He will not reign.
6.) There is strong opposition against the King of Kings. (v.3)
Those who rebel against the King have raised their voice against God like a flood of water. They oppose him with all their might.
7.) Our Lord is mightier than any opposition on earth. (v.4)
The opposition of angry, violent men who rage against God lift their voices up to God. They thunder and roar but they cannot touch Him. The Lord’s throne is seated on high. He is above them all in strength and might.
8.) God’s Words are trustworthy. (v.5)
We can trust every single word the King of Kings has said. His word is truth.
9.) Our Lord is completely holy. (v.5)
Our Lord is set apart from us in every thing he says and does. He is completely holy.
10.) His Kingdom stands forever! (v.5)
From everlasting to everlasting, our God is unchanging. His strength, might, majesty and holiness will last forever. He reigns eternally.
This is our God!
This the King that we get to walk with daily!
He gave His Son to die for us. He is with us and He loves us. May we sing his praises forever!
“Worthy is the Lamb who was slain,
to receive power and wealth and wisdom and might
and honor and glory and blessing!”
Even when the wicked seem to be winning — do not worry…
Those who rebel against God have no chance of winning.
The King of Kings and the Lord of Lords reigns forever.
