THEME: A Flood of Peace
SCRIPTURE: -Psalm 29:10-11 “The Lord sat enthroned at the Flood, and the Lord sits as King forever. The Lord will give strength to His people; the Lord will bless His people with peace.”
Sometimes we hear Christians say, “Don’t worry; God is still on His throne.” But the word “still” could easily be deleted from the statement. “Still” implies the possibility that God might one day not be on His throne.
The psalmist used the imagery of God on His throne and illustrated it with reference to the most disruptive time in earth’s history: the Flood (Genesis 6–9). Some interpreters see “Flood” as referring to troubles in general, as in Psalm 29:3. While “Flood” can refer to troubles in the Old Testament, the past tense “sat” suggests a reference to a flood in the past—the Flood in Genesis. If God was on His throne during the Flood, surely He is on His throne and ruling during all of life’s “floods.” Just as Paul promised in Philippians 4:6-7 (“the peace of God”) and 4:8-9 (“the God of peace”), peace will be found when God is ruling during life’s troubles.
Whatever “flood” you are going through right now, remember: God is on His throne and will be forever. Receive the blessing of His peace!
Peace rules the day when Christ rules the mind.
