The Lord sits enthroned over the flood; the Lord is enthroned as King forever. The Lord gives strength to his people; the Lord blesses his people with peace.
Psalm 29:11 (NIV)
The flood referenced in verse ten is most likely the great flood that Noah and his family survived. The Lord had complete control over that earth-changing, humanity-altering event. The Lord who sat enthroned over that flood is also the Lord who sits enthroned over our lives.
He’s the same Lord who came to earth as an infant.
Consider that for a moment.
The Lord, powerful enough to create the universe and everything in it, then flood the entire planet, came to earth in the form of a baby so that we can be reborn. The King enthroned forever laid, swaddled in plain linen, in the young arms of Mary. The same awe-inspiring power that orchestrated and controlled a cataclysmic flood, was contained in the body of a newborn.
In the midst of our own floods, we can experience peace as a result of the strength given to us by the Lord.
For Today: Ask the Lord in prayer today to flood your heart with the peace only he can provide.
