Oh Clap Your Hands, All You People!
"Oh, clap your hands, all you peoples!
Shout to God with the voice of triumph!
For the Lord Most High is awesome;
He IS a great King over all the earth.
He will subdue the peoples under us,
and the nations under our feet.
He will choose our inheritance for us,
the excellence of Jacob whom He loves.
God has gone up with a shout,
The LORD with the
sound of a trumpet.
Sing praises to God, sing praises!
Sing praises to our King, sing praises!
For God is the King of all the earth;
Sing praises with understanding.
GOD reigns over the nations;
GOD sits on HIS holy throne.
The princes of the people have gathered together,
The people of the God of Abraham.
For the shields of the earth
belong to GOD;
He is greatly exalted."
Our God, the Creator of the whole earth, rules and reigns over all the earth. Psalm 33:12 tells us
"Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord."
Verse 18 says:
"Behold, the eye of the Lord is on those who fear Him,
On those who hope in His mercy..."
"Our soul waits for the Lord;
He is our help and our shield.
For our heart shall rejoice in Him,
Because we have trusted in
HIS HOLY NAME.
Let YOUR mercy, O LORD,
be upon us,
Just as we hope in YOU."
My plea and prayer for our nation is that we will truly trust in the Lord our God, in His Holy Name...and that we will acknowledge His Presence and Power in our lives and in our nation. Just as we heard God's Holy Name invoked in many prayers during the inauguration of our new President yesterday, as godly men prayed for our country, our new President, his cabinet and our government...prayers in the Name of the Father, and The Son, and the Holy Spirit, may it be so, Lord God. May YOU truly reign over our nation, and bless us just as the rain fell upon our new President as a sign of Your Blessing...
May we truly acknowledge and know that You are our God,
"Our God forever and ever;
He will be our guide
Even to death."
"GOD BLESS AMERICA,
LAND THAT I LOVE!
STAND BESIDE HER,
AND GUIDE HER,
THROUGH THE NIGHT
WITH THE LIGHT FROM ABOVE!"
