Sing to God, sing in praise of his name, extol him who rides on the clouds; rejoice before him—his name is the Lord. -Psalm 68:4, NIV
This psalm of praise continues to impart such hope into my soul. I see God at work throughout all of human history. I continue to see my Lord Jesus Christ make the wrongs of fallen humanity right. Is it any wonder we are called to sing to God, praise His name, give Him all glory and honor, and rejoice in Him? What other response could we have? Our Victor rides on His great white horse and creates a new world filled with peace and joy for us.
The fatherless find refuge in the shadow of the Almighty. They are not only given a safety and comfort they have never known before, but God miraculously gives them a true sense of home, of belonging, which is what we all need. I see once-vulnerable widows become strong with Jesus as their first line of defense. No longer are they living in fear, but standing strong on the arm of the Most High God.
As we continue to sing this song of triumph and praise, God sets every lonely one in a place of security and nurture. They are given a family of their own. They are not “taken in,” but God himself sets them there. Oh, friends, can you see it? Can you see what David saw seven hundred years before Christ’s coming? It’s the rule of Christ making all things right as He makes His way through all of life.
Have you allowed Him the rule of your life that He so kindly requests? Are you ready to join in His march across our broken world to bring salvation and healing?
Prayer: Dear God, I am so honored to follow you into a battle to bring redemption and healing to a lost and hurting world.
