Psalm 29

The Voice of the Lord in the Storm.

A Psalm of David.

29 Ascribe to the Lord, O [a]sons of the mighty,
Ascribe to the Lord glory and strength.
Ascribe to the Lord the glory [b]due to His name;
Worship the Lord in [c]holy array.

The voice of the Lord is upon the waters;
The God of glory thunders,
The Lord is over [d]many waters.
The voice of the Lord is powerful,
The voice of the Lord is majestic.
The voice of the Lord breaks the cedars;
Yes, the Lord breaks in pieces the cedars of Lebanon.
He makes Lebanon skip like a calf,
And Sirion like a young wild ox.
The voice of the Lord hews out [e]flames of fire.
The voice of the Lord [f]shakes the wilderness;
The Lord shakes the wilderness of Kadesh.
The voice of the Lord makes the deer to calve
And strips the forests bare;
And in His temple everything says, “Glory!”

10 The Lord sat as King at the flood;
Yes, the Lord sits as King forever.
11 [g]The Lord will give strength to His people;
[h]The Lord will bless His people with peace.

This psalm is quite the picture of God’s strength and might. From breaking trees with His voice, to shaking the very earth, there is nothing God cannot do. In contrast, there are times when we feel weak, and inadequate. We feel as if we don’t have what it takes to do what is needed. We may be right, and that’s kind of the point.

In our weakness, God can show up and His strength is revealed in us. Despite our weakness, He calls us to do big things that are beyond our ability. Because there is nothing He can’t do, there is nothing that we can’t do when He has called us to do it.

When you feel like the task is too big, step back and get some perspective. Don’t try to do it on your own, we weren’t created to do things alone. Instead, ask God for His strength, that you might be a living testimony of His power. Then watch and see what He can do in and through you!
