August 12, Day 225 - Psalm 97

Click here to go to Psalm 97

The Lord is king!
    Let the earth rejoice!
    Let the farthest coastlands be glad.
Dark clouds surround him.
    Righteousness and justice are the foundation of his throne.
Fire spreads ahead of him
    and burns up all his foes.
His lightning flashes out across the world.
    The earth sees and trembles.
The mountains melt like wax before the Lord,
    before the Lord of all the earth.
The heavens proclaim his righteousness;
    every nation sees his glory.

Such a beautiful picture of our God and how nature responds to Him. The only one that confuses me is the "Dark clouds..." Not sure the significance of that phrase. But still such a beautiful, powerful imagery. 

Blessings on this Sunday!
