Psalm 29

Praise to God in His Holiness and Majesty

A Psalm of David.

Give unto the Lord, O you mighty ones, Give unto the Lord glory and strength. Give unto the Lord the glory due to His name; Worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness. The voice of the Lord is over the waters; The God of glory thunders; The Lord is over many waters.

The voice of the Lord is powerful; The voice of the Lord is full of majesty. The voice of the Lord breaks the cedars, Yes, the Lord splinters the cedars of Lebanon. He makes them also skip like a calf, Lebanon and Sirion like a young wild ox. The voice of the Lord divides the flames of fire. The voice of the Lord shakes the wilderness; The Lord shakes the Wilderness of Kadesh. The voice of the Lord makes the deer give birth, And strips the forests bare; And in His temple everyone says, “Glory!”

10 The Lord sat enthroned at the Flood, And the Lord sits as King forever. 11 The Lord will give strength to His people; The Lord will bless His people with peace.

Today as I read from the Psalms, I am reminded to worship. Sure, it’s something I do on Sundays and Wednesdays at church, but when I read this Psalm I reminded to do it much more often. In fact, when I read this Psalm today, I am reminded to make worship a part of every part of my day. God, I want to see You in every aspect of my day and worship You. When all is well, help me to worship. When the strain of the day is weighing heavy on me, keep me focused on You in worship. When I am weary and wearing down, turn my eyes upward in worship. Draw our congregations together proclaiming “Glory”! Today, I worship.
