The Lord Reigns: 1Chronicles 16:33

31 Let the heavens rejoice, let the earth be glad;
let them say among the nations, “The Lord reigns!”
32 Let the sea resound, and all that is in it;
let the fields be jubilant, and everything in them!
33 Let the trees of the forest sing,
let them sing for joy before the Lord,
for he comes to judge the earth.

1 Chronicles 16:31-33 (NIV)

These verses are sometimes titled “Creation Praises God.” The majesty of creation, its beauty, and diversity is a testimony of praise; praise to their creator to the Lord. The beauty and complexity of nature; display His marvelous works. The Lord reigns. Let the trees sing; bringing forth blossoms; a chorus of joy, for the Lord is a righteous judge.

He will judge the world in righteousness and people in faithfulness. God is coming to set things right!

30-33 God is serious business, take him seriously;
he’s put the earth in place and it’s not moving.
So let Heaven rejoice, let Earth be jubilant,
and pass the word among the nations, “God reigns!”
Let Ocean, all teeming with life, bellow,
let Field and all its creatures shake the rafters;
Then the trees in the forest will add their applause
to all who are pleased and present before God
—he’s on his way to set things right!

1 Chronicles 16:30-33 (MSG)

The Lord reign, creation praises Him, do you sing for joy for our righteous Lord?

Prayer; Our Heavenly Father, we are in awe of Your creation. Help us to rejoice, be jubilant and sing with joy, for You are hope and salvation. Let nature sing; for you are a righteous judge. Like the dogwood and cherry tree crescendo with spring flowers, let us sing in joy as we grow in faith and righteousness. In Jesus’ holy name. Amen
