Today’s daily reading from Psalm 93 brought images of the ocean to my mind – the vast expanse of water, the roaring sound of the breakers when walking along the shore. David must have made trips to the sea. He must have felt as dwarfed by the waves on the Mediterranean as I did by those on the Pacific. The strength of the waves bring to mind the power of God as well as awe at his creation.
Your throne, O LORD, has been established from time immemorial.
You yourself are from the everlasting past.
The mighty oceans have roared, O LORD.
The mighty oceans roar like thunder;
The mighty oceans roar as they pound the shore.
But mightier than the violent raging of the seas,
Mightier than the breakers on the shore–
The LORD above is mightier than these!
