Ruled by God

Psa. 148:5 Let them praise the name of the LORD,
For He commanded and they were created.

Jer. 10:12 ¶ It is He who made the earth by His power,
Who established the world by His wisdom;
And by His understanding He has stretched out the heavens.
Jer. 10:13 When He utters His voice, there is a tumult of waters in the heavens,
And He causes the clouds to ascend from the end of the earth;
He makes lightning for the rain,
And brings out the wind,

Is. 6:3 And one called out to another and said,
“Holy, Holy, Holy, is the LORD of hosts,
The whole earth is full of His glory.”

Though few deign to constrain themselves to be under God’s aegis, He nonetheless rules the heavens and the earth. How do we show our obeisance to His sovereignty?

Ruled by God

Ex. 15:18 “The LORD shall reign forever and ever.” The few have always accept God’s reign; it has not been easy. One does not claim to accept God’s rule

Ex. 31:18 ¶ When He had finished speaking with him upon Mount Sinai, He gave Moses the two tablets of the testimony, tablets of stone, written by the finger of God.

Ex. 34:6 Then the LORD passed by in front of him and proclaimed, “The LORD, the LORD God, compassionate and gracious, slow to anger, and abounding in lovingkindness and truth;
Ex. 34:7 who keeps lovingkindness for thousands, who forgives iniquity, transgression and sin; yet He will by no means leave the guilty unpunished, visiting the iniquity of fathers on the children and on the grandchildren to the third and fourth generations.”

Matt. 12:28 “But if I cast out demons by the Spirit of God, then the kingdom of God has come upon you.

Rom. 14:17 for the kingdom of God is not eating and drinking, but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.

Matt. 4:3 And the tempter came and said to Him, “If You are the Son of God, command that these stones become bread.”

Matt. 4:4 But He answered and said, “It is written, ‘MAN SHALL NOT LIVE ON BREAD ALONE, BUT ON EVERY WORD THAT PROCEEDS OUT OF THE MOUTH OF GOD.’”
