Psalms 93: 1The Lord reigneth, he is clothed with majesty; the Lord is clothed with strength, wherewith he hath girded himself: the world also is stablished, that it cannot be moved. 2 Thy throne is established of old: thou art from everlasting. 3 The floods have lifted up, O Lord, the floods have lifted up their voice; the floods lift up their waves. 4 The Lord on high is mightier than the noise of many waters, yea, than the mighty waves of the sea. 5 Thy testimonies are very sure: holiness becometh thine house, O Lord, forever.
Think, in one word, how you would describe God. These words were offered: everything, everlasting, superior, evermore, almighty, all, precious, fulfillment. David is describing God and uses words such as majesty and might. The buzz word in the news now is declare. Many have declared things when they are in no position to declare a thing. They are limited, but our God is majestic. His majesty is—it just is. I can’t change it. Whether I believe or don’t believe, whether I obey or disobey, whether I attend to him or ignore him changes nothing.
Majesty is greatness and royalty. God is bigger than we are. He’s smarter. His reach is further. In fact, he’s perfection in everything. He’s all in all. He is clothed with majesty. God rules and reigns. The devil doesn’t have the upper hand with God, and if he has it with us it is because we are not trusting God as we should. God is defamed, profaned and ridiculed. He’s put down and scorned. They make him some-thing instead of some-one so he can be ignored. This gives in to open rebellion and abandonment of morality. Sin is paraded. Man vindicates himself saying there is no God. It makes me realize how small I am and how big God is. It makes me see how wrong I was and how right God is. God is real. Jesus Christ is real. The Holy Spirit is real. God broke through many barriers to get to us. It took God to do that and reach us.
Majesty is a high honor given to a high sovereign. Being the King or Queen of England is small scale. God is over all, the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. It’s fitting that he receives high honor because he’s over everything. The floods rise in our lives. Let them do what they will. The Lord on high is mightier than the noise of many waters, yea, than the mighty waves of the sea. God is mightier. When you see and hear waves crashing against the rocks, it makes you feel small to feel that force. God speaks in a voice that is louder than any waves that might hit us. He’s mightier than any issues of life. This fact validates his majesty. Look at how many devils you’ve faced. Look at all the brick walls. Look how many ends have been met. It’s because of God! We’re here because of his hands and his might. Because of who he is and how he feels toward us and what he has promised, the very least we can do is give him glory. Thy testimonies are very sure. Everything God does speaks for itself. We should be the ones bragging on him. Clothe him with majesty by our praise. He should not have to remind us how great he is.
Holiness becometh thine house, O Lord, forever. We should be holy. We are the house of God. Through Jesus Christ we have righteousness that enables us to choose right over wrong. We can be holy in this world. God is good to us. He ends this psalm with one word: forever. When it’s all said and done, it will be forever. I’m looking forward to the end. We’ll be with him forever. There will be no sin forever. There will be no devil forever. I’m sick of this world.
The good thing about God is that he’s everything you all said; he’s everything this psalm says, and he is it forever. Put his robe of majesty on him by honoring him with our lives and service.
