DCLM Daily Manna, July 27 2016 by Pastor Kumuyi - Power Over Oceans
Topic: Power Over Oceans [July 27, 2016]
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).
Terrible and dangerous floods have claimed lives across the world for years. In the past year, extreme weather caused severe flooding in many parts of the world. Increasing elemental dislocations across the world are posing serious concern to all. Even worse, the failure of weather predictions is sending jitters down the spine of metereologists.
But our God remains on the throne. The Psalmist in our text enumerated some of the glorious attributes of God. He reigns supreme above everything. His throne is established of old and has no end. He controls the seas and the mighty floods so that their damage is checked. His testimonies, that is his Word, are very sure and holiness characterize His house forever. God is supremely and incomparably greater than all freakish conditions. When you are in the ocean, you have no control over its movement and power. Yet, in this psalm, we see God portrayed as even more powerful than the ocean.
Does the prospect of a relationship with such an all-powerful Being scare you and circumvent any intimacy you might have with Him? It is great to remember all the great things that God has done in the past, but we cannot leave Him in the history books. We need to be able to say, "The Lord reigns in my life today". We have no choice than to cleave to Him fully especially now that frightening and uncertain weather conditions and environmental dislocations are in the upswing. You must stand on Christ's solid rock for all other grounds are sinking sand.
Thought for the day: God is faithful and trustworthy in every situation.
