The scripture for today is Psalm 29.
A psalm of David.
1 Ascribe to the LORD, you heavenly beings, ascribe to the LORD glory and strength. 2 Ascribe to the LORD the glory due his name; worship the LORD in the splendor of his holiness.
3 The voice of the LORD is over the waters; the God of glory thunders, the LORD thunders over the mighty waters. 4 The voice of the LORD is powerful; the voice of the LORD is majestic. 5 The voice of the LORD breaks the cedars; the LORD breaks in pieces the cedars of Lebanon. 6 He makes Lebanon leap like a calf, Sirion like a young wild ox. 7 The voice of the LORD strikes with flashes of lightning. 8 The voice of the LORD shakes the desert; the LORD shakes the Desert of Kadesh. 9 The voice of the LORD twists the oaks[c] and strips the forests bare. And in his temple all cry, “Glory!”
10The Lord sits enthroned over the flood; the Lord is enthroned as King forever. 11The LORD gives strength to his people; the LORD blesses his people with peace.
In the first 10 verses, notice the words, is over, mighty, powerful, majestic, breaks, strikes, shakes, twists, strips, and enthroned. Powerful images.
But in the 11th verse, he gives strength to his people and blesses us with peace.
Quite an interesting turnaround in the 11th verse when it comes to His people.
Dear Lord, Thank you for the strength you give Your people. I appreciate the blessings of peace that you bestow on me.
