‘Ascribe to the Lord the glory due his name; worship the Lord in the splendour of his holiness’ (Psalm 29:2).
We finish our week of readings with a psalm of praise to our mighty God! Underline or highlight in your Bible all the adjectives used here to describe our creator God and the effects of his voice!
We get such a picture of power, majesty, might, splendour, and glory – even the mere voice of God has mighty effects on his creation!
Do you ever struggle to find ways, words or reasons to praise God simply for who he is? The Book of Psalms never disappoints! There is so much there, ready to be used as a springboard for our own prayers and praise. If it’s been hard to praise God in the last 12 months because of what we have experienced or see happening around us, perhaps it’s time to reconnect with God as creator, all-powerful Lord and Redeemer. Just as we read all of these rich, powerful words about God’s glory and how we need to ascribe to him glory and splendour, so we also read that this same God gives us strength! This God blesses his people with peace! This God is with us, empowering us, and blessing us this year as we walk in his light day by day! That is our God! Hallelujah!
Lord, this year may we focus on you more than we do on ourselves. We pray for worshipping hearts and noticing eyes. May we look for your hand on your creation, discover your mighty works anew, and worship you in the splendour of your holiness. We praise you and thank you that you give strength and bless your people with peace. In Jesus’ mighty name, Amen.
