The Lord sat enthroned at the Flood,
And the Lord sits as King forever. – Psalm 29:10
I was reading Psalm 29 today and this passage leaped off the page to me, as it reveals that the God of the Universe was not absent on the day that he brought the great deluge that covered the earth as a judgment against humanity as it had reached its fullness of iniquity. Not only was he still on the throne when it looked as if all hope was lost but even now amid a dark and fallen world, God is still on the throne and he is still King!
Not only is he still on the throne but he will remain on the throne and one day he will return to Earth as “King of Kings and Lord of Lords” right amid another great timeframe of darkness called the Tribulation. As much as we could hang out here and focus on the eschatology of this verse, I want to remind someone reading this that this same God who is on the throne in the midst of Earth’s darkest hours is also on the throne and King in your darkest hour.
He knows what you are facing, He knows your doctor’s report, your financial predicament, the condition of your marriage, and the rebellion of your children. None of this changes his plans and position in your life. I want to remind you that the Lord’s hand is not shortened, That it cannot save; Nor His ear heavy, That it cannot hear. Many times when we are facing dark seasons in our life the enemy will sneak in and try to tell us that God has abandoned or forsaken us but that is when we have to know the Word of the Lord. We have to open our mouth and declare what the Lord has promised us “lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”
