Psalm 47:8-9 (JDV)
Psalm 47:8 God reigns over the nations; God is seated on his holy throne.
Psalm 47:9 The nobles of the peoples have assembled with the people of the God of Abraham because the leaders of the land belong to God; he is greatly exalted.
We Christians often get a mindset where we focus on the needy, the marginalized and the poor as if they are the only ones who need the gospel. That is a natural result of our seeking those have needs in order to introduce them to Christ who has met our need for forgiveness.
But we should keep in mind that Christ came to save sinners, and that includes everyone.
This psalm celebrates God as king over the whole land, and this section highlights the prominent citizens of other nations who will bow the knee to him.
Lord, thank you for being everyone’s king.
