Beyond Understanding

Article written by Brother Bledsoe

The LORD reigns, he is clothed with majesty; the LORD is clothed with strength, wherewith he has girded himself: the world also is established, that it cannot be moved.  Your throne is established from eternity: You are from everlasting.
Psalm 93:1-2

It is not possible for me to fathom God.  I can understand some of what He does but with the limited ability of my mind and the limits of my lifespan I cannot comprehend eternity or God who has no beginning.

The Psalmist matter-of-factly proclaims, the LORD reigns.  That means that no one can, may, or should question His authority.  He does as He wills to do without consultation from His creation.

He is clothed in majesty.  Perhaps we can imagine this best if we have watched the pomp and ceremony of the Queen of England when she is decked out in the finest of her robes and crown.  Imagine when you see God for the first time what a spectacle that must be.

He is also clothed in strength which He wears because of Who He is not because someone has proclaimed Him to be so.  Clothing in the Old Testament was considered an extension of a person; so, the expression robed in majesty describes the Lord as majestic and powerful in His reign.  His strength is innate, that is it is of Himself.  It was not gained; it always was and is.

By His own power and Word, the world is hung on nothing and it is established and will be as long as He wants it to be.  It cannot be moved out of its orbit or its rotation slowed.  Man makes his claims, but God controls. This earth and all the rest of the planets and moons and stars are His.  God is in control.

His throne is established and will never be relinquished.  Man would set himself on the throne of God if he could but that ain’t going to happen.  God is eternal.  He will always be God.  He is worthy of praise and worship and He will be worshiped forever. Let His praise and worship be the occupation of our hearts today and forevermore.  He is God! Amen and amen.
