Tehillim Ninety-Three: Ocean

“More than the voices of great waters and more than the mightiest breakers of the sea, is the Lord mighty on high (Psalms 93:4).” I can’t think of a more powerful natural creation than the ocean. The breadth and depth of the water are unknown, and the boundlessness of the ocean is an awesome, inspiring display of the beauty of creation. With secrets beneath the surface, and waves both gently lolling to shore and powerfully crashing down, it’s an amazing metaphor for God’s caring and passionate nature. It can be good or bad depending on how one sees it, just like God’s presence. God, of course, is beyond the sea, but the measurelessness of it definitely alludes to something divine.
