For thou, LORD, art high above all the earth: thou art exalted far above all gods. Psa 97:9
The Lord Reigneth
There's times in seasons of prayer, that something that may have taken place during the business of the day, or something said by someone, will draw me to go deeper into a verse of scripture, and the Holy Spirit will open it up to me and expand my understanding of the magnitude of who God is-and His majesty and sovereignty in the universe that He created. At these times, it opens up to me the vastness of His reign, and His infinite wisdom, and patience. The deeper into these aspects I go, my heart and spirit is drawn like a magnet, to simply stop, and give Him praise, and worship Him for who He is-not asking for anything, or desiring anything else from Him. When meditation takes this turn in my soul, the manifest Presence of God is magnified, and envelops me, and the cares of this world, and the daily problems fade away, and He becomes the only thing that matters. It's in this place of meditation and prayer-that true dialogue, and conversation develops.
Dan 2:47 The king answered unto Daniel, and said, Of a truth it is, that your God is a God of gods, and a Lord of kings, and a revealer of secrets, seeing thou couldest reveal this secret.
Amo 3:7 Surely the Lord GOD will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets.
This is the realm where many times, the Lord has revealed secrets to me regarding serious matters He wants intercession for, in regards to world leaders, and spiritual warfare in certain areas of the nations. When our spirits become in tune with the magnitude of His reality, we see world events through His lens- and through His perspective. When I take a verse of scripture such as this, I will cross-reference it with other's that open the understanding and expand the mind of God on what it's conveying. This kind of study is priceless in developing a relationship with the Lord, that few have the desire or patience to strive for-but, it is worth it.
Below are a couple of meditations that further expand on this verse of scripture:
“For thou, Lord, art high above all the earth.” And therefore do we rejoice to see the idols abolished and to see all mankind bending at thy throne. There is but one God, there cannot be another, and he is and ever must be over all. “Thou art exalted far above all gods.” As much as ALL is exalted above nothing, and perfection above folly. Jehovah is not alone high over Judea, but over all the earth, nor is he exalted over men only, but over everything that can be called god: the days are on their way when all men shall discern this truth, and shall render unto the Lord the glory which is due alone to him."
(Charles Haddon Spurgeon-Treasury of David)
Our Enemies-From God's Perspective
The keynote here is the reign of God. To the wicked, it spells misery; to the believer, it is the inauguration of harmony and joy. It is as though herald-angels step from isle to isle, from mountain peak to mountain peak, with the glad tidings of great joy. It is not always easy to trace its advent. Clouds and darkness are around him. The eye of sense cannot penetrate the black enclosing pall, but faith is ever certain that righteousness and judgment are the foundation of His throne.
Sometimes God comes in fire, Psa_97:3, as at Sinai, or on the day of Pentecost, which took place on the anniversary of the giving of the Law. Days come like that on which Jerusalem fell, or when the Turks took Constantinople, or when Napoleon was shattered at Waterloo-then hills melt like wax. But through all dark and terrible dispensations the Kingdom is secretly growing, the Lord is being exalted, and light is being sown for His people, Psa_97:11. So, believer, your tears and fightings, as they pass, are absorbing heaven’s love and power, which they will hold in reserve though buried for long in the dark. Days are at hand of unspeakable gladness. Be of good cheer. (F.B. Meyer)

And it came to pass in those days, that he went out into a mountain to pray, and continued all night in prayer to God. Luk 6:12
And in the morning, rising up a great while before day, he went out, and departed into a solitary place,
and there prayed.
