Oh wow. I’m working on creating a new bedtime habit of reading my paper bible before bed. I have beautiful Bibles and never take them off the shelf, and that’s changing! Last night, Holy Spirit told me to turn to Psalm 93.
PSALMS 93 The Majesty of God A Friday song composed by King David after being resettled in the land 1Look! Yahweh now reigns as King! He has covered himself with majesty and strength, wearing them as his splendor-garments. Regal power surrounds him as he sits securely on his throne. He’s in charge of it all, the entire world, and he knows what he’s doing! 2Lord, you have reigned as King from the very beginning of time. Eternity is your home. 3-4Chaos once challenged you. The raging waves lifted themselves over and over, high above the ocean’s depths, letting out their mighty roar! Yet at the sound of your voice they were all stilled by your might. What a majestic King, filled with power! 5Nothing could ever change your royal decrees; they will last forever! Holiness is the beauty that fills your house; you are the one who abides forevermore!

Reading it, I felt his powerful Presence, as I read the words, I could sense the waves of the storm raging and terrifying and then the complete peaceful silence as Jesus calmed the storm.
I had been praying to have more faith and trust in him and he showed me his power, which turns out to have given me a real concrete reminder that the words are real. He really can handle it all. I can just follow.
Other special touches I felt in this reading:
- My word for 2023 is Royalty. I’m on the lookout for figuring that out for myself. It’s about not living below my place as a daughter of God.
- Chaos: When I was telling my story in the Lost & Found group I’m in, Valerie sensed what I was sensing (Holy Spirit is amazing). We both felt that chaos had been my way of life for most of my life. My inner world was dangerous, not-to-be-trusted, and stuck in trauma. I laid that at the cross and intend to leave it there.
