Chapter-a-Day Psalm 47

KingGod is Lord of godless nations— sovereign, he’s King of the mountain. Psalm 47:8 (TM)

I remember playing King of the Mountain as a kid. Of course, when you live in IOWA mountains are kind of scarce. So, the game usually got relegated to winter when the snowplows made mountains of ice and snow on the corner of the school playground.

The thing about King of the Mountain is that you could always be king for a time, but there was always someone bigger and stronger. There was definitely a higher-archy of third graders in my class who could hold the mountain for a time, but when the sixth-graders came out from recess it was all over. No one was going to stand up to those guys.

It’s sort of the same way on this playground called Earth. Kingdoms rise and fall. Kings stand on their mountains for the length of their recess. But Scripture promises that God will someday hit the playground. Then all bets are off.

  1. 1-9 Applause, everyone. Bravo, bravissimo! Shout God-songs at the top of your lungs!
    There is always a special high energy in church on Easter. I felt it again yesterday. The risen Lord always puts everyone in a good mood. I wish we could repeat that every Sunday. Everyone was singing at the top of their lungs (self included) and celebrating what Christ has done for us. You know, that fact doesn’t go away next Sunday. Let’s celebrate like that every day!
