The Great King of the universe – the sovereign, powerful, glorious Creator of all things – chose to reside with His people (the Israelites) in His city. And because of God’s presence, the city is described as beautiful and “the joy of the whole earth” (Psalm 48:2). The citizen’s of God’s city not only enjoy His presence, but also His protection (v.3), love (v.9) and righteousness (v.10). This Great King is Lord . . and He alone is worthy of human praise.
How have you experienced God as sovereign in your life? When was the last time God expressed His love to you? How have you seen God’s righteousness prevail in your life? When was the last time that you praised God specifically for His sovereignty? His love for you? His righteousness? Why not take the time now to praise God for who He is. . . for He alone is worthy of your praise!
