1 The Lord is king; he is robed in majesty;
the Lord is robed; he is girded with strength.
He has established the world; 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 More majestic than the thunders of mighty waters,
more majestic than the waves[a] of the sea,
majestic on high is the Lord!
5 Your decrees are very sure;
holiness befits your house,
O Lord, forevermore.
I’m sorry, but for someone proudly raised in the proud USA, the word majesty and calling another “Your Majesty” snacks of some checkered national history back to our founding. (The same goes with “king” speak, but I need to look beyond my limited and faulty national pride.)
This psalm invites me to view THE LORD as my king.
God established the world.
God is more majestic than the thunderstorms that I watch with awe.
And God’s decrees are sure, holy, and everlasting.
That’s the Entity that I could and should view as My Majesty.
Let stand in awe of You, my God and my King. And let me thank you for making, claiming, and saving me from my own limited self. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
