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 Lebanonâ€™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, â€œGlory!â€
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. Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â 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 â€œsawâ€ 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 â€œthe voice of God …â€ 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?
