Psalm 29

Honor the Lord, you heavenly beings;
honor the Lord for his glory and strength.
2 Honor the Lord for the glory of his name.
Worship the Lord in the splendor of his holiness.

3 The voice of the Lord echoes above the sea.
The God of glory thunders.
The Lord thunders over the mighty sea.
4 The voice of the Lord is powerful;
the voice of the Lord is majestic.
5 The voice of the Lord splits the mighty cedars;
the Lord shatters the cedars of Lebanon.
6 He makes Lebanon’s mountains skip like a calf;
he makes Mount Hermon leap like a young wild ox.
7 The voice of the Lord strikes with bolts of lightning.
8 The voice of the Lord makes the barren wilderness quake;
the Lord shakes the wilderness of Kadesh.
9 The voice of the Lord twists mighty oaks and strips the forests bare.
In his Temple everyone shouts, “Glory!”

10 The Lord rules over the flood waters.
The Lord reigns as king forever.
11 The Lord gives his people strength.
The Lord blesses them with peace.                      Psalm 29 (NLT)

Did you think about what Paul said in his letter to the Philippians this weekend? It all came back to me again when I read this psalm. Once again I “saw” how big God is and how much He loves me. I saw the LORD this weekend in the sunshine and the crispness of the fall weather. I saw Him in the face of my grandchildren as they love and embrace their lives with unrestrained joy.

This song repeats the phrase “the voice of God …” reminding me that God speaks in many ways. Am I listening? I cry out to God, asking Him to hear me and answer me. But then the question is: am I quiet and leaning toward Him to hear?

It’s quiet in my home after a very busy and joyful weekend. All that celebrating was wonderful! But now I am celebrating in a different way. I am listening to my LORD and affirming all that he is saying to me in the quiet. I am rejoicing and singing a song of praise! Will you join me?
