Psalm 47:8

“God reigns over the nations; God is seated on his holy throne.” (NASB)


“God reigns (malak: king, rule, set up, to counsel, advise) over the nations; God is seated (yashab: dwell, abide, inhabit, remain, set) on his holy (qodesh: sanctuary, dedicated, hallowed, consecrated, sacred) throne (kicce': seat of honor, stool, royal dignity, authority, power).”


God is ruler over the nations; He inhabits His holy and sacred seat of honor, authority and power.


The God of all Creation has no identity crisis. He is in absolute control and He knows it. While many don’t like to see God in such a manner, due to their carnal approach to Him, I say I’d have it no other way. Who should be in control? Who should rule and reign? You and I? I think not. Today, take the time to acknowledge that God reigns from His holy sanctuary and nothing that ever was, is and ever will be must pass through Him first.
