Read Psalm 99


Read Psalm 99

The Lord is king;
and the people tremble.
He is enthroned above the winged creatures
and the earth shakes.
2     The Lord is mighty in Zion;
he is supreme over all the nations.
3     Everyone will praise his great and majestic name.
Holy is he!
4     Mighty king,y you love what is right;
you have established justice in Israel;
you have brought righteousness and fairness.
5     Praise the Lord our God;
worship before his throne!
Holy is he!
6     Moses and Aaron were his priests,
and Samuel was one who prayed to him;
they called to the Lord, and he answered them.
7     He spoke to them from the pillar of cloud;
they obeyed the laws and commands that he gave them.
8     O Lord, our God, you answered your people;
you showed them that you are a God who forgives,
even though you punished them for their sins.
9     Praise the Lord our God,
and worship at his sacred hill!z
The Lord our God is holy.

Think

Before the LORD the people tremble; he is above the angels - and the whole earth shakes.
Are we properly aware of the majesty of God?

Pray

Lord, help me to be more aware of your majesty today.
