Today’s Readings – Psalms 25, 29, 33, 36, and 39
The LORD sits enthroned over the flood; the LORD is enthroned as King forever. Psalm 29:10
In the midst of all the flooding that is happening, this verse really leaps off the pages of the Bible for me.
God is in control.
For me that does not mean God has caused the flooding, but that God does provide hope in the midst of the flooding. Without God, we are left with billions of dollars of property damage, 100s of lives lost, and lots of despair, gloom, and hopelessness.
With God we have hope in the midst of desperation.
Psalm 29:10 seems to be an oxymoronic statement until read the next line . . .
The LORD gives strength to his people; the LORD blesses his people with peace. Psalm 29:11
In the troubling times of life, we need not look any further than God to find hope and peace.
Without God, the troubles of life remain hopeless.
God is in control and I can look to God to find hope in the midst of life’s troubles.
