The Lord Rules-Psalm 96:10-12

O nations of the world, recognize the Lord;
recognize that the Lord is glorious and strong.

Psalm 96:7 (NLT)

10 Say to the nations, “The Lord rules.”
The world is firmly set in place. It can’t be moved.
The Lord will judge the people of the world fairly.

Psalm 96:10 (NIRV)

11 Let the heavens be full of joy. Let the earth be glad.
Let the ocean and everything in it roar.

Psalm 96:11

12 Let the fields and everything in them be glad.
Let all the trees in the forest sing for joy.

Psalm 96:12

The Lord is glorious and strong. We are to proclaim to the world that the Lord rules. Make known that God’s work is lasting and good. He has firmly established the world; it is immovable and lasting. God is good! Let us tell the world of His glory and His salvation.
God is a righteous judge, fair, and ruling with justice. In praise, all creation rejoices, the heavens are full of joy, the oceans roar, the fields are glad, and the forests sing for joy. For the Lord rules, He is glorious, strong, and good. We rejoice and worship Him with love and thanksgiving.

The Lord rules, He is loving, forgiving, fair, and good. Are you thankful for His providence, grace, and mercy?

Prayer; Our Heavenly Father, we are in awe of Your works and amazed by Your grace. We thank you for your justice and love. Teach us to proclaim to all that the Lord rules. Let us praise, rejoice, and be thankful for Your forgiveness, love, and provision to us. May nature and Your people sing for joy. In Jesus’ holy name. Amen

Great Works: Psalm 92:4-5

Rose Mallow

For you make me glad by your deeds, Lord;
    I sing for joy at what your hands have done.
How great are your works, Lord,
    how profound your thoughts!

Psalm 92: 4-5

In my garden, often songs of joy fill the air, emanating from a small wren. The Lord’s handiwork is manifested in gardens, by the natural beauty of the flowers, the rustle of the gentle wind, and the piping song of the birds. Today, find time to tell God of your joy by prayer and song.

What in the natural world makes you want to thank God and sing with joy?

Prayer: Dear Lord help us to have faith that is bright and open like these flowers. Help us to lead lives centered on you, like the dark vivid center of the mallow’s bloom. Let our songs of joy be lifted to You daily. Thank you, Lord, for your great works and wisdom. In Jesus name holy name. Amen
