“Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD, the people He chose for his inheritance.”
Psalm 33 exhorts readers to praise God, to recognize the power of His word in creation and to fear our creator. It offers hope to forgiven sinners in that under the cleansing blood of Christ, they can live a new life under God’s hand of divine protection. His Word displays His character and a power that extends to ‘all’ nations. He speaks and creation is formed, boundaries are set, kings and leaders are established and nations are ruled and exalted or destroyed. Plans and schemes of mighty humanity will not prevail as Verse 10 confirms that God will confuse the plans of nations and thwart their evil schemes in order to bring His plan to fruition, fulfilling biblical prophecy. In His sovereignty, nothing will interfere with it. Nothing will stop it and nothing will counter His progress.
Today, His word still orders creation, still sets boundaries, still establishes rulers to govern and at His word and divine intervention nations will be exalted or destroyed for His glory. Those who fear this powerful, sovereign God; those who stand in awe of Him are His chosen inheritance Psalm 33: 13-19. We are either for Him or against Him, either with Him or without Him. We either stand in awe of Him or choose to ignore Him. We are either on His side, or we fight against Him. He is the victorious One, who will someday set up His mighty, victorious kingdom…We would do well, to grab the Victory shirt of salvation, fight the good fight of faith as one of His chosen and be assured of our glorious heavenly inheritance!
