Psalms 45-47; 1 Thessalonians 2

Psalm 47:6-10

God has gone up with a shout; the LORD, amid trumpet blasts.

Sing praise to God, sing praise; sing praise to our king, sing praise.

For God is king over all the earth; sing hymns of praise.

God rules over the nations; God sits upon his holy throne.

The princes of the peoples assemble with the people of the God of Abraham.

For the shields of the earth belong to God, highly exalted.

In Psalm 47 we have a wonderful prefigurement of the Ascension of Christ.  I think of the tremendous disappointment and discontent we often feel towards our earthly leaders; our hearts will swell with love and joy in the presence of the eternal King.
