1 The Lord rules. He puts on majesty as if it were clothes. The Lord puts on majesty and strength. The world is firmly set in place. It can’t be moved. 2 Lord, you began to rule a long time ago. You have always existed. 3 Lord, the seas have lifted up their voice. They have lifted up their pounding waves. 4 But Lord, you are more powerful than the roar of the ocean. You are stronger than the waves of the sea. Lord, you are powerful in heaven. 5 Your laws do not change. Lord, your temple will be holy for all time to come.
I read this and think: the world need to know this. My family, friends and the people I come into contact with need to know this. God is not dead, insipid, irrelevant, obsolete or a figment of the imagination… He is in control, strong, everlasting, majestic, reliable and holy. He alone is worthy of being number one in our lives.
God, help me push into your greatness, expect more of you and give you plenty of room in which to be great. In my day to day life please open up opportunities for me to share with others how great you are. Help me to communicate you in a way people can understand. May people encounter your greatness through me and see your greatness firsthand in their lives. Amen.

I love how God uses images of the sea to compare with His greatness. It can be a force to be reckoned with, but God is greater,stronger & more in control than the wildest oceans-that’s ultimate control!
