Praying Psalm 29

Edward F. Lundwall Jr.

God’s Glory and Power
Seen in Nature

Key Verses: Give unto the LORD the glory due unto his name; worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness. The voice of the LORD is upon the waters: the God of glory thunders. The LORD is upon many waters. (Ps. 29: 2,3 NKJV)

O Father, I worship and thank you as this psalm reminds me that you deserve my adoration based on Nature's obvious display of your power. There are times when spiritual warfare is so strong that my faith needs the obvious reminders found in nature that you are and are abiding beyond this little world and especially, my earthly sojourn. How great it is to see the evidences that you are the Abiding One Who is the Cause and Sustainer of the Heavens, the Sea, and the Earth. What security to know and feel the evidence that after the gross failures of your people, you still abide and sustain those who hope in you! Your callings and gifts are never recalled (Romans 11:29). You have demonstrated your enduring promises in the example of Israel! For although she has played the whoring wife and for two thousand years has rejected your beloved Son and the salvation He died to provide, yet according to your prophets, you restored the nation back to the land you promised them (Zechariah 12). You will also restore the remnant of Abraham and David’s household in spirit as well as in the flesh (Romans 11:23-25). You will bring them to faith by the glorious appearing of the Lord Jesus Christ. You will fill the sky as with lightening as you raise your children from land and sea to live in your presence forever. How powerful and mighty and merciful you are!
