Chapter-a-Day Psalm 29

Lightning_3 Bravo, God, bravo! Gods and all angels shout, "Encore!" In awe before the glory, in awe before God’s visible power. Psalm 29:1 (TM)

In our technological age, we are bombarded with televised images of weather disasters through cable, satellite and the internet. Hollywood raises the ante and entertains us with wild, imaginative displays of nature gone awry. I wonder if, in the flood of images, we become numb to what we are really seeing. Do these things inspire us to wonder at God’s power and might, or do they get mixed in with the millions of other images and our brains simply process them as nothing more than the usual input?

David saw God in the thunderstorm and in the flood. We tend to see only that our golf game was ruined or that tonight’s commute is going to be a killer.

  1. 1-2 Bravo, God, bravo! Gods and all angels shout, “Encore!”
    In awe before the glory,
    in awe before God’s visible power.
    Stand at attention!
    Dress your best to honor him!
    We studied angels this Tuesday in small group. What an incredible group of beings. I think each time I read a reference about them from now on I will have a more complete and beautiful picture of their role to praise and glorify God. This chapter also brings out a childhood memory. One of my favorite things growing up was standing in our tin roof machine shed during a thunderstorm. The sound of the rain on the tin, but more impressive the sound of the thunder magnified in that building. The power of God was very clear to me during those times. Isn’t it interesting how we remember those things?
