Psalm 29

1 Bravo, God, bravo! Gods and all angels shout, “Encore!” 2 In awe before the glory, in awe before God’s visible power. Stand at attention! Dress your best to honor him! 3 God thunders across the waters, Brilliant, his voice and his face, streaming brightness – God, across the flood waters. 4 God’s thunder tympanic, God’s thunder symphonic. 5 God’s thunder smashes cedars, God topples the northern cedars. 6 The mountain ranges skip like spring colts, The high ridges jump like wild kid goats. 7 God’s thunder spits fire. 8 God thunders, the wilderness quakes; He makes the desert of Kadesh shake. 9 God’s thunder sets the oak trees dancing A wild dance, whirling; the pelting rain strips their branches. We fall to our knees – we call out, “Glory!” 10 Above the floodwaters is God’s throne from which his power flows, from which he rules the world. 11 God makes his people strong. God gives his people peace.

 

Digger Deeper:

  1. Take time to read Psalm 96each day this week.  Draw close to God spending time in prayer and waiting.
  2. Bravo God! Can you think of a time in your life when you had an experience that made you want to exclaim Bravo God
  3. Where are you most likely to experience the awesomeness of God? In a garden? A thunder storm? In the mountains? Beside a lake or the ocean? In the forest? Looking out over a fresh blanket of snow?
  4. The name of God is repeated 14 times in 12 verses. Why? What is David trying to get at?
  5. This Psalm speaks of the voice of Gd having the power of a storm. Read Matthew 8:23-27 and 1 Kings 19:3-13. Where is God in these storms? When the storm passes, then what?
