The whole earth sings! Even in the midst of this turmoil. The sun still rises and the moon still sets. The stars still twinkle. The seas still lap the shores. The sand still shifts. The islands still float. The breeze still blows. O Yes! The whole earth sings of your majesty and glory. Selah.
“Let the whole earth sing to the LORD! Each day proclaim the good news that he saves.
“Publish his glorious deeds among the nations. Tell everyone about the amazing things he does.
“GREAT IS THE LORD! He is most worthy of praise! He is to be feared above all gods.
“The gods of other nations are mere idols, but the LORD made the heavens! Honor and majesty surround him; strength and joy fill his dwelling.”
1 Chronicles 16:23-27
We join the joyful chorus of praise. We praise the LORD with our brothers and sisters from across the seas! We rejoice with the righteous Nations. We rejoice with the angelic hosts of heaven. Let the whole earth rejoice!
Our God is glorious and he is strong. Our God is righteous and holy. Our God is alive and well. Let the mountains rejoice. Let the trees of the field clap their hands. Let the stars twinkle in delight. Let the heavens be glad. The LORD reigns! He reigns! He reigns! It is ALL under his control. Everything. Good. Bad. And in between. He reigns over it all!
We shout his praise! We sing of his goodness in the midnight hour. We tell of his promises that are for our children and our children’s children. We declare His Word that does not return void. We declare His faithful love that endures forever. We declare his grace and mercy that never ends.
We are not alone. We are not forsaken. We are not abandoned. The LORD will rescue his own and he will smite the enemy from before us. Our future is secure in Him! Our victory has already been won! He is the LORD! The Holy One of Israel. The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. The Great I Am!
We are the called. We are the chosen. We are the remnant. We are the unshakeable kingdom of God. We will not be moved! We stand as his children and we praise his holy and his righteous name!
“Praise the LORD, the God of Israel, who lives from everlasting to everlasting! And all the people shouted “Amen!” and praised the LORD.” 1 Chronicles 16:36
So be it! In Jesus name.
