26 April 2021 – Psalm 22:27-28 (NIV)

Scripture

“All the ends of the world Shall remember and turn to the LORD, And all the families of the nations Shall worship before You.  For the kingdom is the LORD’s, And He rules over the nations.”

Reflection

This psalm began with David crying out: “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?”  These very same words were uttered by Jesus when he was on the cross.  David’s cries made up this messianic psalm that foretold about Christ (see vvs 16-18), which brings the promise of hope and deliverance.  We read here that God has always intended to save not just His people, the Israelites, but ALL people.  Even if the ends of the world had forgotten about the Lord, there will come a day when they shall remember, and turn back to Him.  In my mind, I see masses of people gathered together and suddenly, a bright light floods the sky.  This light is so bright, that, while shielding their eyes, the people look expectantly upward to behold this light, which is the glory of God.

We look forward to this glorious day, when ALL of God’s creation will worship Him again and be ruled by Him.  No other god can make this claim. Hallelujah

Prayer

Praise Him! 1) Adopt a posture of praise by standing, kneeling, opening your hands and lifting them up; 2) Spend moment in silence to be still before the Lord, 3) Use the words of this Psalm to shape your praise. “Do you not know? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom.”-Isaiah 40:28
