PSALM 99 - King Size 9 Feb 2020
At some place in the Netherlands you can take pictures wearing enormous wooden shoes, king-size. God's saving justice is king-sized too. The forgiveness of God is "king-sized." Worthy of a great king. He has nothing to loose. He is however honest and just.
If my desire for God's ways is small, God can do little for me. I must call on his Name ... and believe. If my faith is not "king-size", I should pray for more faith, but not more than I can handle.
1 Yahweh is king, the peoples tremble;
he is enthroned on the winged creatures,
the earth shivers;
2 Yahweh is great in Zion.
He is supreme over all nations;
3 let them praise your name,
great and awesome;
holy is he 4 and mighty!
You are a king who loves justice,
you established honesty,
justice and uprightness;
in Jacob it is you who are active.
5 Exalt Yahweh our God,
bow down at his footstool; holy is he!
6 Moses and Aaron are among his priests,
and Samuel, calling on his name;
they called on Yahweh and he answered them.
7 He spoke with them in the pillar of fire,
they obeyed his decrees, the Law he gave them.
8 Yahweh our God, you answered them,
you were a God of forgiveness to them,
but punished them for their sins.
9 Exalt Yahweh our God,
bow down at his holy mountain;
holy is Yahweh our God!
