The Psalmist writes about the God of Glory:-
“the God of glory thundereth”
Sometimes we need to remember who God is – how magnificent and how mighty He is. Sometimes we forget the scale of God and we start to minimize Him. Sometimes our days become so filled with worldly thoughts, worldly ambition, worldly cares that we forget about our God of Glory.
And then something big happens.
Something massive. Something that we couldn’t have imagined. Just a few weeks ago no-one could’ve convinced me that I wouldn’t be going to Church, I wouldn’t be going to Prison to preach, I wouldn’t be visiting people to pray. Who could’ve imagined that?
But here we are.
Something massive has come, but someone massive is looking out for us. As we read the Psalm today remember these facts, say them to yourself:
The LORD’s voice is strong;
the LORD’s voice is majestic.
The LORD’s voice breaks cedar trees—
yes, the LORD shatters the cedars of Lebanon.
He makes Lebanon jump around like a young bull,
makes Sirion jump around like a young wild ox.
The LORD’s voice unleashes fiery flames;
the LORD’s voice shakes the wilderness—
yes, the LORD shakes the wilderness of Kadesh.
The LORD’s voice convulses the oaks,
strips the forests bare,
but in his temple everyone shouts, “Glory!”
The LORD sits enthroned over the floodwaters;
the LORD sits enthroned—king forever!
The question is, do you believe this? Wind your way through the Psalm and then hear the Lord say to you today:-
The Lord will give strength unto his people; the Lord will bless his people with peace.Psalm 29: 11
Today, can I encourage you to right-size God. This is the God who created everything, this is the God who loves you, this is the God who cares deeply about everything you do and everything you think and everything you are. This is the God who sent His son to die on a cross so that you could be free. This is the God who blesses His people with peace.
We are God’s people and Jesus is our Peace.
Do you need a Saviour today? His name is Jesus and He is your peace – run to him, kneel before him, worship him, he is King, forever.
Jesus. The Glory of God.
