Charles Spurgeon Morning August 12: The LORD Reigns, Let The Earth Rejoice

The Lord reigneth, let the earth rejoice. – Psalm 97:1

There are no causes for disquietude; so long as this blessed sentence is true. The Lord’s power as readily controls the rage of the wicked, as the rage of the sea! His love as easily refreshes the poor with mercy; as the earth with showers. God’s majesty gleams in flashes of fire amid the tempest’s horrors; and the glory of the Lord is seen in its grandeur in the fall of empires, and the crash of thrones!

In all our conflicts and tribulations, we may behold the hand of the divine King.

“God is God; He sees and hears
All our troubles, all our tears.
Soul, forget not, ‘mid your pains,
God o’er all forever reigns!”

In hell, evil spirits own, with misery, His undoubted supremacy. When permitted to roam abroad, it is with a chain on their leg. The bit is in the mouth of behemoth, and the hook in the jaws of leviathan. Death’s darts are under the Lord’s lock. The grave’s prisons have divine power as their warder. The dreadful vengeance of the Judge of all the earth makes fiends cower down and tremble, even as dogs in the kennel fear the hunter’s whip.

“Fear not death, nor Satan’s thrusts,
God defends whom in Him trusts;
Soul, remember, in your pains,
God o’er all forever reigns!”

In heaven none doubt the sovereignty of the King Eternal; but all fall on their faces to do Him homage. Angels are His courtiers, the redeemed His favorites, and all delight to serve Him day and night. May we soon reach the city of the great King!

“For this life’s long night of sadness
He will give us peace and gladness.
Soul, remember, in your pains,
God o’er all forever reigns!”



Father God,

Charles Spurgeon writes, “in heaven none doubt the sovereignty of the King Eternal.”

Help us Almighty God, through the power of the Holy Spirit, to never succumb to fear or doubt as we walk through the wilderness of this evil world. For You are Sovereign. You are the Alpha and the Omega. The Beginning and the End. The First and the Last. Your Word and purpose shall stand no matter what evil regime may set itself up on earth.

You so loved the world that You sent Jesus, Your only Son, so that whoever believes in Him will not perish but have everlasting life (John 3:16). And to those who have faith in the Sovereign King Eternal, “our citizenship is in heaven, and from it we await a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ” (Philippians 3:20).

As we eagerly await our Lord Jesus, grant us increased strength and increased courage to triumph over the evil arrayed against us each day. And give us eyes to see and ears to hear those glimpses of heaven, the peace, beauty, love, and hope within Your Creation, which far outnumber the offensive actions and boisterous noise of American Democrat Marxists and their globalist overlords. 

For regardless of how much money, power, or control the American Democrat Marxists and the globalist overlords of the World Economic Forum think they amass, You Father God, You Almighty Lord reigneth! And what more could be full cause for the earth to rejoice except that You reign Supreme! Praise You Eternal Sovereign of all Creation!


For the sake of our Lord Jesus Christ, we ask these things, and we ask in His Beloved Name, Amen.
