The LORD Reigns - Your Daily Forward Devotional


The LORD Reigns


October 5


Read Psalm 99:1-3

The LORD reigns, let the nations tremble; He sits enthroned between the cherubim, let the earth shake. Great is the LORD in Zion; He is exalted over all the nations. Let them praise your great and awesome name-He is holy.



Why should the nations tremble and the earth shake as God sits enthroned?


Some days we just need a reminder. The LORD reigns.


There is so much going on in our country right now that can make us fearful of the future. It's an election year in the middle of a pandemic with a country divided, and there are riots in the streets. It definitely feels out of control.


So I wanted to remind you that no matter what is going on in our country and in our world, that God is on His throne. And He will never leave it. He has everything under control.


His name is Great. He is exalted. He is Holy. Verse 4 of Psalm 99 goes on to say, "The King is mighty, He loves justice-you have established equity." He is all-powerful and the only Righteous Judge. He will judge with perfect fairness. He never gets it wrong.


I hope it brings you peace to remember who is really ruling the world. The King who is worthy of fear and trembling but also worship and praise. He is awesome--the only perfect Ruler. Let's trust Him as He reigns today.



Lord, You are my God and King. I know that I can trust You because You are Holy, Mighty, Righteous, and Fair. I am leaving all the details of my world in Your hands. I know You have everything under control. Amen.

Thank you, God.
Without You, everyone would be lost in fear and darkness searching for hope and light.
Without You, chaos would reign instead of purpose and order.
Let Your Will be done.
Everything is Your's Father.
Praise Your Holy Name!
