This last week I shared that one of the keys to finding God as your refuge in the time of trouble is being convinced that he reigns. I love David's declaration in Psalms 11; The Lord is in His holy temple, His throne is in heaven. Davids statement powerfully illustrates his conviction that God's presence was with Him and that God reigns supreme over all situations, even the difficult ones. As I thought about this I was reminded about a song we used to sing in church when I was I kid, I want to share it with you. If you are struggling remember our God reigns, find refuge in our King.

How lovely on the mountains are the feet of Him
Who brings good news.
Announcing peace, proclaiming news of happiness:
Our God reigns, our God reigns!

Our God reigns!
Our God reigns!

He had no stately form, He had no majesty
That we should be drawn to Him.
He was despised and we took no account of Him.
Our God reigns, our God reigns!

Our God reigns!
Our God reigns!

It was our sin and guilt that bruised and wounded Him.
It was our sin that brought Him down.
When we like sheep had gone astray our Shepherd came
And on His shoulders bore our shame.

Our God reigns!
Our God reigns!

Meek as a lamb that’s led out to the slaughterhouse,
Dumb as a sheep before its shearer,
His life ran down upon the ground like pouring rain
That we might be born again.

Our God reigns!
Our God reigns!

Out from the tomb He came with grace and majesty;
He is alive, He is alive.
God loves us so, see here His hands, His feet, His side
Yes we know, He is alive.

Our God reigns!
Our God reigns!
