God’s Supremacy

Then the earth shook and trembled; the foundations of heavenquaked and were shaken, because He was angry. Smoke went up from His nostrils, and devouring fire from His mouth;
coals were kindled by it. - >2 Samuel 22:8-9

In the song David wrote, God is shown in His supremacy over the earth. He is omnipotent––all powerful.  He is in full control of everything that He does. David described a God who was angry, with smoke from His nostrils that lit coals to glow with heat.

There is no such thing as mother-nature––only God. He is in control of all earthly elements. Remember when the disciples were caught in the middle of a storm, on the Galilee Sea?  Jesus spoke calming the wind and waters. What did the disciples realize about Jesus’ supremacy? Mark 4:41 tells us: …they feared exceedingly, and said to one another, “Who can this be, that even the wind and the sea obey Him!”

Then there were the three children of Israel; Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego. King Nebuchadnezzar ordered them to be thrown bound into the mist of a burning, fiery furnace (Daniel 3:23). The king was astonished when they did not die! He and his leaders saw that:

these men on whose bodies the fire had no power; the hair of their head was not singed nor were their garments affected, and the smell of fire was not on them (Daniel 3:27).

The king told his counselors that he saw them all unbound and a fourth man:“…like the Son of God”walking with them in the fire (Daniel 3:24-25). God was in complete command of the fire. In times of testing and trial, trust in God’s supremacy over the situation.

I am the First and I am the Last; besides Me there is no God.
~Isaiah 44:6~
