Our God Reigns!
"Clap your hands, all you nations; shout to God with cries of joy."
Psalm 47:1

"How awesome is the Lord Most High, the great King over all the earth!"
Psalm 47:2
Psalm 47 is a kingdom Psalm. Every heart has a throne room, an oval office. The question we raise as we meditate this morning is: Who is sitting on the throne of your heart?

Many commentators believe this particular Psalm was written during the time recorded in 2 Chronicles 20 when Jehoshaphat is surrounded by enemies on every side.

2 Chronicles 20:12: "...We do not know what to do, but our eyes are upon you" (NIV).

The Lord responds by saying in 2 Chronicles 20:17:"...Go out to face them tomorrow, and the Lord will be with you" (NIV).

The key to life is to let the King rule!

King of my life, I crown Thee now! When things start happening thick and fast, we forget who has controls.

I have a sign I face every morning: "Don, Trust Me, I have everything under control. Jesus."

Psalm 145:3: "Great is the Lord! He is most worthy of praise! His greatness is beyond discovery!" (NLT)

Verse 1: "Clap your hands, all you nations; shout to God with cries of joy."

The Psalmist begins with 2 commands: (1) "Clap your hands" and (2) "shout to God with cries of joy."

The Bible Knowledge Commentary says: "...Such shouts of joy...could only come from willing subjects of this King." (829)

(1) Surrender; (2) Submission; and (3) Sensitivity to the Spirit.

Verse 2: "How awesome is the Lord Most High, the great King over all the earth!"

Here the Psalmist describes the Lord in 2 ways. He is: (1) "awesome" and (2) "great."

The Lord is called: (1) "the Lord Most High" and (2) "the great King over all the earth."

Ecclesiastes 3:11: is on my heart this morning: "He has made everything beautiful in its time..." (NIV).
