Worship the Lord

In the 29th Psalm, we have a beautiful description of the power of the voice of the Lord. Consider the following sentiments:

The Voice of the Lord

  • “is over the waters” (3)
  • is powerful” (4)
  • “is full of majesty” (4)
  • “breaks the cedars” (5)
  • “splinters the cedars of Lebanon” (5)
  • “divides the flames of fire” (7)
  • “shakes the wilderness” (8)
  • “makes the deer give birth” (9)
  • “strips the forests bare” (9)

This description is given within the context of a call to worship Him. “Give unto the Lord the glory due to His name; Worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness” (2). Because of who God is, because of His character, wisdom, power and position, He is due (or worthy) honor.

He requires His worshippers to be holy. “But as He who called you is holy, you also be holy in all your conduct, because it is written, ‘Be holy, for I am holy’” (1 Peter 1:15-16). May each “purify your hearts” (James 4:8), and “Worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness.”
