"Clap your hands, all you nations;
shout to God with cries of joy,
How awesome is the Lord Most High,
the great King over all the earth!...
For God is the King of all the earth;
sing to Him a song of praise,
God reigns over the nations;
God is seated on His holy throne."
This is an excerpt from the Psalm I read early today and it was perfect for today.
As the XXX Olympic Open Ceremony finished I was moved by a preview of heaven. In London representatives from all nations (almost) were assembled in one place all wearing their unique garb. Members of all nations were singing together. They were singing "Hey Jude" all in one accord. How awesome was that!
Here is a YouTube clip of it. The quality isn't great but hopefully you saw it live. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pqzCvVWEY0M
This is a great preview of heaven. All nations will shout to God with cries of joy. They will sing to Him a song of praise because God reigns over all the nations. Hopefully Sir Paul McCartney is a brother and can help lead us in song in the throne room.
As moving as this scene was heaven will be infinitely more moving. I can't wait! Enjoy the Olympics and wait in eager anticipation to the time all nations will be gathered together before our great God. As my friend Palngji would say, "Be blessed today."
