Psalm 83 is a prayer to God asking Him to reveal Himself to the world. While there are times we feel God is unknown to most of the world, there will come a time when God will be revealed to all and no one will be able to deny His existence, power, and authority. Until then, we can live with that knowledge and work to build our personal relationship with Him.
Jesus showed boldness and authority even knowing His life was coming to an end. When Pilate asked Jesus if He knew how much authority he had, this was Jesus’ reply in John 19:11, Jesus answered, “You would have no power over me if it were not given to you from above. Therefore the one who handed me over to you is guilty of a greater sin.” While earthly men may have had power over Jesus’ human body, they did not have control over His authority given to Him by His Father. When life takes us to a point where we feel out of control, we must remember that nothing Has authority over our Creator and Heavenly Father.
