Psalm 68 “God Springs Into Action…”

The pdesert clouds Nick Tong2salmist beautifully records his thoughts about God in all of his glory as he exalts him in the descriptions as the true God, the God of the heavens who rides his chariots upon the clouds and across the desert sands. God’s perspective is from on high and from there He leads for He who goes before us is also blocking the way of the enemy who seeks to harm us. Chris Tomlin’s praise song “Whom Shall I Fear” captures some of these thoughts:

“I know who goes before me, I know who stands behind, the God of angel armies is always by my side”

Also, Paul visualizes this powerful majestic God when he writes:  “If God is for us, who can be against us?” Paul knew the truth that when our archenemy is on the prowl “God springs into action.” Thus, He alone is worthy of our praise whether he rides on the desert or in the heavens in his chariot. He is our victorious leader and we are to extol his virtues for he cares for the least and rescues them.  His power is limitless and his compassion is revealed:  “He is a father to the fatherless and an advocate for widows.”

In these challenging times continue to cling and trust him. God is performing his work in your life that his name might be glorified. There is a purpose and a plan that we may not see but this one thing we do know; 1Co 2:9 “Things that no eye has seen, or ear heard, or mind imagined, are the things God has prepared for those who love him.”
