Psalm 103:19

The Lord has established his throne in the heavens,
    and his kingdom rules over all 

– Psalm 103:19 – 

Commentary by Enduring Word

The Lord has established His throne in heaven,
And His kingdom rules over all.

The Lord has established His throne in heaven: David celebrated God’s secure reign from heaven. God is enthroned in heaven, beyond the troubles and corruptions of earth. It is established, and will never be moved.

And His kingdom rules over all: There is an eternal contrast between the Ruler and the ruled. There is no aspect of the universe that is not under His reign.

“When Melancthon was extremely solicitous about the affairs of the church in his days, Luther would have him admonished in these terms, Monendus est Philippzzs ut desinat esse rector mundi, Let not Philip make himself any longer governor of the world.” (Clarkson, cited in Spurgeon)
