Psalm 93:1 (NLT)
God is not only above us but also far above us. King David muses in Psalm 113:4-5, “For the Lord is high above the nations; his glory is higher than the heavens. Who can be compared with the Lord our God, who is enthroned on high?” He goes on to talk about ‘the glorious majesty’ of God’s kingdom in Psalm 145:12 (KJV), and says that ‘honour and majesty surround him’ in Psalm 96:6 (NLT).
When we think of the Queen we think of a throne, and the word ‘majesty’ comes to mind. How much greater is God. His throne is above time and space. His Kingdom is an everlasting Kingdom that endures throughout all generations.
When the Apostle Peter tells us about the transfiguration, he says we ‘were eyewitnesses of his majesty’ (2 Peter 1:16 KJV). Hebrews 1:3 and 8:1 tell us Christ sat down at the right hand of the majesty in heaven. We know a time will come when everyone will know about the majesty and glory of God’s reign (Psalm 145:12-13).
Very few of us will ever get to meet the Queen, let alone sit beside her on the throne, but Jesus tells us, “To him that overcomes will I grant to sit with me in my throne even as I overcame and am sat down with my Father in his throne” (Revelation 3:21 (KJV).
“To the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and forever. Amen.” (Jude 25 KJV).
Thank you, Father, for reminding me how majestic you are, that you are robed in majesty and rule over everything. I pray for the day when everyone will know and worship your Majesty!
