Scripture of the Day || July 12th, 2018
Ascribe to the Lord, you heavenly beings, ascribe to the LORD glory and strength.
Ascribe to the LORD the glory due His Name; worship the LORD in the splendor of His holiness.
The voice of the LORD is over the waters; the glory of God thunders, the LORD thunders over the mighty waters.
The voice of the LORD is powerful; the voice of the LORD is majestic…
The voice of the LORD strikes with flashes of lightning.
The voice of the LORD shakes the desert; the LORD shakes the desert of Kadesh.
The voice of the LORD twists the oaks and strips the forests bare.
And in His temple all cry, “Glory!”
The LORD sits enthroned over the flood; the LORD is enthroned as King forever.
The LORD gives strength to His people; the LORD blesses His people with peace.
Did you wake up with a rather heavy heart this morning?
Were there things weighing you down even before you started your day?
Well, let me remind you that the Bible assures us that: “The faithful love of the LORD never ends! His mercies never cease. Great is His faithfulness; His mercies begin afresh every morning.” (Lamentations 3:22-23 NLT) This morning, count yourself as blessed because you are the recipient of fresh mercies from God. Count yourself as the favored recipient of God’s unending love and great faithfulness. The eyes of the LORD are on you. It will all be well.
As you work your way into the day, take a moment to reflect over what David is saying in this Psalm. David is asking us to ascribe to the LORD the glory due His Name and to worship Him in the splendor of His holiness.
Why this invitation?
Because: The voice of the LORD is over the waters; the voice of the LORD is powerful; the voice of the LORD shakes the waters; the voice of the LORD twists the oaks…
The LORD sits enthroned over the waters; the LORD gives strength to His people; the LORD blesses His people with peace.
So Is your heart heavy? Meditate over these wonderful words from the Holy Spirit and be at peace because the LORD is over every water that seeks to drown you! God’s voice will speak powerfully over your life and situation. God sits enthroned over every flood water that you will encounter. God will give you strength and He will bless you with peace.
So, put a smile on your face and look ahead with confidence, your circumstances notwithstanding. Ascribe praise to our Majestic LORD for He has the power and resources to see you through every situation.
Prayer: Lord, I ascribe my highest praise to you today. Amen.
