“Nations rage, kingdoms topple; the earth melts when He lifts His voice.” (Psalms 46:6 HCSB)

What is surprising about this verse is the end.  That nations rage, and kingdoms topple, and the earth metaphorically melts is self-evident to anyone who has lived on the earth.  Things happen, wars are fought, nations come and go, what is amazing is that all of this is due to the Lord speaking.

Here is a picture of authority that amazes us, when God speaks, mighty things happen in the physical world, and among mankind.

It shouldn’t, of course, amaze us, because God spoke the universe into existence, such is the power of his words and authority.

We serve the God who controls all things with words.
