“Your throne was established long ago; you are from all eternity” (v2). The psalmist reminds us that God is the great unshakeable foundation of all that is. He established our earth, and therefore it is “firm and secure,” part of His plan. God’s strength and stability are greater than the worldly chaos represented by “the floods” – the sea that terrified ancient people because of its power to destroy. God is “mightier than the thunders of many waters” (v4).
Our world is full of the thunder of chaos, but we do not fear. God is “mightier than the waves of the sea” (v4), and He loves us.
