THE Nation whose God is the Lord

Psalm 33:10-12 says: 

"The LORD brings the counsel of the nations to nothing; 
he frustrates the plans of the peoples. 
The counsel of the LORD stands forever, 
the plans of his heart to all generations. 
Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD, 
the people whom he has chosen as his heritage!" 

And what nation, what people is that? The Apostle Peter answers that it is the nation of those who have received the mercy of God in Jesus Christ. 

"But you [who believe in Jesus] are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light. Once you were not a people, but now you are God's people; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy" (1 Peter 2:9-10). 

And indeed, by the stunning grace of God in Christ, what a blessed nation are we! May we offer thanks and praise to God this day, may we exalt his name for granting us a King who cannot be moved and a Kingdom that cannot be shaken!
