The Lord is mightier than them all.

“The mighty oceans have roared, O Lord, The mighty oceans roar like thunder, The mighty oceans roar as they pound the shore. But mightier than the violent raging of the seas, mightier than the breakers of the shore. The Lord above is mightier than these” Psalm 93: 3-4

In most of our mission fields and what we know African Traditional Religion (ATR) to be, people seem to ascribe spirituality and reverence to things that they cannot understand. Trees like the Iroko are worshipped as a wonder of the gods. In fact, issues of life are divided between the gods and humans. The roaring of the mighty oceans is one of the things that the ‘gods’ do, hence the worship of the gods/goddesses of the seas. This is because they cannot comprehensively understand the issue of the oceans.

However, a lot of these things are superstitious while demons have taken advantage of people’s ignorance to exploit them and receive worship from them.

The Lord above is mightier than them all.

God is eternal. He has no beginning and no end. He has always existed and dwells from eternity past. He created the universe and the host we know and the ones we don’t know, even the seas. The Lord above is mightier than them all.

He deserves our worship and reverence। In the arena called “time” where human beings live, we go through all kinds of troubles। The idea here is that even if your troubles are like the ‘violent raging of the seas’, the Lord above is mightier than them all and is able to bring you deliverance।
This morning i heard my wife singing the old Scripture Union Spiritual:
"No man can walk upon the sea"
"No man can walk upon the sea"
"No man can walk upon the sea"
"Only Jesus can walk upon the sea"
It's well with you.
