The Voice of the Lord

(Psalms 29:1-2) ¶ Give unto the LORD, O you mighty ones, Give unto the LORD glory and strength.
2 Give unto the LORD the glory due to His name; Worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness.
I love this Psalm!

God is GREAT! The strongest and most powerful of men must bow before Him in worship! Our strength is nothing in comparison to Him. Our goodness is nothing in the bright light of His genuine holiness.

I imagine David watching a powerful thunderstorm as He wrote this.
(Psalms 29:3-9) The voice of the LORD is over the waters; The God of glory thunders; The LORD is over many waters.
4 The voice of the LORD is powerful; The voice of the LORD is full of majesty.
5 The voice of the LORD breaks the cedars, Yes, the LORD splinters the cedars of Lebanon.
6 He makes them also skip like a calf, Lebanon and Sirion like a young wild ox.
7 The voice of the LORD divides the flames of fire.
8 The voice of the LORD shakes the wilderness; The LORD shakes the Wilderness of Kadesh.
9 The voice of the LORD makes the deer give birth, And strips the forests bare; And in His temple everyone says, “Glory!”
Tremendous flashes of lightening. Powerful wind tearing the leaves off the branches. Crashing and Booming thunder rattling the earth. Pouring rain filling the streams with a rushing torrent.

God is GREAT! This great storm is just a drop in the bucket compared to His almighty power.
(Psalms 29:10-11) 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.
The storm passes. The sun shines. The leaves drip and sparkle. The fawn frolics. God smiles on us - His people. We are secure in His blessing, because He is "King forever."
