"International Presbytery, 2016 AD
Thought for Wednesday 21st October
(from Rev E. Foggitt)
“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.”
Some of Israel’s kings - David, Solomon and Josiah for example - were a blessing; many were not. Psalms such as this reminded them that the Lord was the real King, and not only over Zion, but over all nations, whose rulers “tremble” in the face of his power.
Reflection: There is an excellent modern version of this psalm by Scottish singer/songwriter Ian White. It is available here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ftJd2w_gHjs Give it a listen!
