The Lord Reigns - Ps 97 (Psalm 97:1-12)Rosemary Aldis, 24th August 2014
Part of the Psalms for Summer series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
Our God is a king of awesome power
He is a king of righteousness and justice
He is coming
He is good
If you worship God you are truly blessed.
God delivers from the hand of the wicked
To hate evil
To rejoice in the Lord
To praise his holy name
Jesus is our coming King - we look forward to the Day when he comes again.

Psalm 97 (Listen)
97:1 The LORD reigns, let the earth rejoice;
let the many coastlands be glad!
2 Clouds and thick darkness are all around him;
righteousness and justice are the foundation of his throne.
3 Fire goes before him
and burns up his adversaries all around.
4 His lightnings light up the world;
the earth sees and trembles.
5 The mountains melt like wax before the LORD,
before the Lord of all the earth.
6 The heavens proclaim his righteousness,
and all the peoples see his glory.
7 All worshipers of images are put to shame,
who make their boast in worthless idols;
worship him, all you gods!
8 Zion hears and is glad,
and the daughters of Judah rejoice,
because of your judgments, O LORD.
9 For you, O LORD, are most high over all the earth;
you are exalted far above all gods.
10 O you who love the LORD, hate evil!
He preserves the lives of his saints;
he delivers them from the hand of the wicked.
11 Light is sown for the righteous,
and joy for the upright in heart.
12 Rejoice in the LORD, O you righteous,
and give thanks to his holy name!
