The LORD Reigns

The LORD reigns, let the earth be glad; let the distant shores rejoice.
–Psalm 97:1

I am currently reading a book on prayer. This verse was sited along with the idea that we should have child-like wonder as we wait to see what God will do.

Sitting at my table, praying and reading, I looked up to see a candle holder that I have had out for a long time. It has a star tied to it that simply says, “Believe.”


Believe that the LORD of all creation truly does reign?

That He is sovereign?

Believe that He hears our prayers?

That He understands our concerns?

The small ones as well as the giant, overpowering ones that cause us to cry out in desperation?

That His way is always best?


All of that and so much more.

The LORD reigns.
