Read Psalm 29

Read Psalm 29

Praise the Lord, you heavenly beings;
praise his glory and power.
2     Praise the Lord’s glorious name;
bow down before the Holy One when he appears.w
3     The voice of the Lord is heard on the seas;
the glorious God thunders,
and his voice echoes over the ocean.
4     The voice of the Lord is heard
in all its might and majesty.
5     The voice of the Lord breaks the cedars,
even the cedars of Lebanon.
6     He makes the mountains of Lebanon jump like calves
and makes Mount Hermon leap like a young bull.
7     The voice of the Lord makes the lightning flash.
8     His voice makes the desert shake;
he shakes the desert of Kadesh.
9     The Lord’s voice shakes the oaksx
and strips the leaves from the trees
while everyone in his Temple shouts, “Glory to God!”
10   The Lord rules over the deep waters;
he rules as king for ever.
11   The Lord gives strength to his people
and blesses them with peace. [1]


Sometimes the LORD speaks loudly.  Imagine the sound and majesty of God’s voice in the images given in the above Psalm.


Lord, help me to appreciate the majesty and power of your almighty voice.

2 29.1, 2: Ps 96:7–9
