Psalm 93

The LORD reigns, he is robed in majesty;
the LORD is robed in majesty and armed with strength;
indeed, the world is established, firm and secure.
Your throne was established long ago;
you are from all eternity.
The seas have lifted up, LORD,
the seas have lifted up their voice;
the seas have lifted up their pounding waves.
Mightier than the thunder of the great waters,
mightier than the breakers of the sea—
the LORD on high is mighty.
Your statutes, LORD, stand firm;
holiness adorns your house
for endless days.

In our lives, we often face turbulent situations and uncertainties. We may feel overwhelmed by the chaos and unpredictability of the world around us. But in the midst of it all, we must remember that God is the one who is in control. He is the one who established the world and set everything in order. This is what the psalmist — probably David — is declaring in this psalm.

This psalm inspired a song a few years ago. For something different, and also because it expresses everything the psalmist says, here it is. It’s called Awesome God and is sung by my good friend John Duiker.

God bless you.

There’s a storm blowin’,
And the waters are rising up high,
There is thunder roaring,
And dark clouds are lining the sky.

But mightier than the thunder,
Louder than the roar of the sea,
Greater than the stormiest ocean
Is the Lord my God.
Mightier than the thunder,
Louder than the roar of the sea,
Greater than the stormiest ocean
Is the Lord my God.

There’s a bad moon rising,
And there’s trouble that’s heading my way,
Temptation is calling,
Threatenin’ to lead me astray.

But brighter than the darkness,
Booming o’er the bark of the foe,
Triumphant o’er the enemy
Is my awesome God.
Mightier than the thunder,
Louder than the roar of the sea,
Greater than the stormiest ocean
Is the Lord my God.

Brighter than the darkness,
Booming o’er the bark of the foe,
Triumphant o’er the enemy
Is my awesome God.
Mightier than the thunder,
Louder than the roar of the sea,
Greater than the stormiest ocean
Is the Lord my God.

The ground is shaking
And my life is falling apart,
Those I love are leaving,
And I’m left with a broken heart.

But sturdier than a fortress,
Stronger than the rock of the earth,
Deeper than the deepest valley
Is the love of my God.
Brighter than the darkness,
Booming o’er the bark of the foe,
Triumphant o’er the enemy
Is my awesome God.
Mightier than the thunder,
Louder than the roar of the sea,
Greater than the stormiest ocean
Is the Lord my God.

Deeper than the deepest valley
Is the love of my God.

Triumphant o’er the enemy
Is my awesome God.

Greater than the stormiest ocean
Is the Lord my God.
