The Lord Reigns



Psalms

Mark Smith
Psalm 97

Each turn of the year gives us certain space & permission to dream, think & plan.  But as we do it, Psalm 97 gives us 3 words to shape those hopes: ‘The LORD reigns’.  He reigns unrivalled & with goodness.  These 3 words re-shape the way we approach the year.  They invite us to hate evil; to rejoice in the LORD & beware idolatry.  3 words of comfort & delight in the year to come.
