God reigns over the nations; God sits on His holy throne. Psalm 47:8-9

God reigns over the nations; God sits on His holy throne. The princes of the people have gathered together, The people of the God of Abraham. For the shields of the earth belong to God; He is greatly exalted.

This is very interesting. The LORD, God, the Almighty reigns over the nations. How do we know? We know because the shields (armies) of the earth belong to Him. However, do they know? I believe that this issue is one of the great “Not yets” But the Day is coming when all will acknowledge His authority. For we read in Philippians 2:9-11 Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

Do I need to emphasize the 'everys' in this passage?


Morning Psalm 5, Noon Psalm 119:169-176, Evening Psalm 134

Alternate Reading Plan based on 7 chapters/day from 7 sections of the Scriptures. My groupings are: Genesis-Joshua, Judges to Esther, Job to Song of Solomon, Psalms breaking 119 into convenient sets, Isaiah to Malachi, Matthew to Acts, Romans to Revelation.

Set your own up in convenient groupings as fits your study habits.

I suggest either setting aside a period of the day to read all, or break the readings up into morning, mid-day, and evening series. Both approaches have their advantages, and both will build an awareness of the Bible as a whole over time.
