Power

Psalm 29

We seem to have had more than our fair share of storms in recent weeks.  They serve as a reminder of the awesome power of nature in its rawness.

This Psalm points us to the power of God – an awesome power.  Though whilst we feel powerless against the storm, we are reminded that God in his power, gives us his strength and his peace.

Psalm 29 (CEV)

(A psalm by David.)

The Voice of the Lord in a Storm

29 All of you angels in heaven,
    honor the glory and power
    of the Lord!
Honor the wonderful name
    of the Lord,
    and worship the Lord
    most holy and glorious.

The voice of the Lord
    echoes over the oceans.
The glorious Lord God
thunders
    above the roar
    of the raging sea,
    and his voice is mighty
    and marvelous.
The voice of the Lord
    destroys the cedar trees;
    the Lord shatters cedars
    on Mount Lebanon.
God makes Mount Lebanon
    skip like a calf
    and Mount Hermon
    jump like a wild ox.

The voice of the Lord
makes lightning flash
    and the desert tremble.
And because of the Lord,
    the desert near Kadesh
    shivers and shakes.

The voice of the Lord
makes deer give birth
    before their time.
Forests are stripped of leaves,
    and the temple is filled
    with shouts of praise.

10 The Lord rules on his throne,
    king of the flood forever.
11 Pray that our Lord
will make us strong
    and give us peace.
