Today’s 333 Devotional: “God Rules Over the Storms”
Through the fiercest storm the Lord rules.
“The Lord sat enthroned at the Flood, and the Lord sits as King forever.” (Psalm 29:10)
In this Psalm David speaks of God’s power and majesty and our need to worship Him exclusively.
“Give unto the Lord, O you mighty ones, give unto the Lord glory and strength. Give unto the Lord the glory due to His name; worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness.” (Psalm 29:1-2)
David then talks about the wonder of God, and how His voice, as heard in the thunder, is powerful and majestic (Psalm 29:3-9). David’s point is not to show God’s anger, as many believe, but rather that He has the power over the storms of life, and His voice is not primarily in judgment, but in grace.
When the disciples were going across the Sea of Galilee, at Jesus bequest, a storm like Psalm 29 describes moved in. And they were fearful for their lives. But what they forgot was that Jesus was in the boat, and when they woke Him up and told Him their fears, it says…
“Then He arose and rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, ‘Peace, be still!’ And the wind ceased and there was a great calm.” (Mark 4:39)
And so today, if you find yourself in a storm, be still and know like David that the Lord sits as King over the flood and hear His voice say to you, “Peace be still.”
And when the storm is over, like to Noah when the rainbow appeared, His promise and covenant of grace and mercy will give us a hope for our future.
“‘Whenever the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and all living creatures of every kind on the earth.’ So God said to Noah, ‘This is the sign of the covenant I have established between me and all life on the earth.’” (Genesis 9:16-17)
