Psalm 95

1 Come, let us sing with joy to the Lord. Let us give a loud shout to the Rock who saves us. 2 Let us come to him and give him thanks. Let us praise him with music and song. 3 The Lord is the great God. He is the greatest King. He rules over all of the gods. 4 He owns the deepest parts of the earth. The mountain peaks belong to him. 5 The ocean is his, because he made it. He formed the dry land with his hands. 6 Come, let us bow down and worship him. Let us fall on our knees in front of the Lord our Maker. 7 He is our God. We are the sheep belonging to his flock. We are the people he takes good care of. Listen to his voice today. 8 If you hear it, don’t be stubborn as you were at Meribah. Don’t be stubborn as you were that day at Massah in the desert. 9 There your people of long ago really put me to the test. They did it even though they had seen what I had done for them. 10 For 40 years I was angry with them. I said, “Their hearts are always going down the wrong path. They do not know how I want them to live.” 11 So when I was angry, I took an oath. I said, “They will never enjoy the rest I planned for them.”

When MH370 disappeared some experts believed it crashed into the Indian Ocean off the coast of Western Australia. The ocean out there is said to be 20,000 ft deep in places. The 777 flies at over 30,000ft above sea level and now could be almost the same distance under the sea. For the sake of the families of those who are missing I pray and hope they find this plane.

While these distances blow my mind, this Psalm reminds me this is nothing for my God.

He holds in his hands the depths of the earth. V4

20,000ft below sea level is nothing for Him! It fits in the palm of His nail-scarred hands.

May my praise ever rise to you Jesus my Lord and Saviour. For you are great and mighty beyond words. That you would hold the oceans in your hands yet die for me blows me away. I am undone in worship and praise.
