This week’s Pastor to Person was written by Pastor Franklin Garcia.
The earth is the Lord’s and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it, for He founded it on the seas and established it on the waters. Psalms 24
David describes the power of the Lord by showing that everything belongs to Him because the Lord is the one who created everything that exists, sustains it, and keeps it in order.
Here the psalmist is emphatic. The earth belongs to Yahweh, and He alone created the earth and sustains it. The Lord God did not only create the earth, but He also maintains it. He makes it possible for the world to exist. The Lord God created the world and holds it together, and this truth created peace and not fear in the midst of chaos in the psalmist’s life.
Remembering that God is the creator, the sustainer of everything that exists, and that everything belongs to Him will bring us peace during difficult times. When we are facing difficulties, let’s meditate on this psalm, and believe me, it will overshadow the fear caused by the chaos or difficulties around our lives. Think about this for a second. The world is held together by our great God, and nothing is out of order, or out of His control. Nothing takes Him by surprise, not even our current situation. Remember, we have a relationship with the creator of the universe that allows us to approach Him, so when fear approaches, do as David did. Praise Him because He is in control!
