Today’s Scripture:

Psalm 29
Ascribe to the Lord, O heavenly beings, ascribe to the Lord glory and strength.

Ascribe to the Lord the glory of his name; worship the Lord in holy splendor.

The voice of the Lord is over the waters; the God of glory thunders, the Lord, over mighty waters.

The voice of the Lord is powerful; the voice of the Lord is full of majesty.

The voice of the Lord breaks the cedars; the Lord breaks the cedars of Lebanon.

He makes Lebanon skip like a calf, and Sirion like a young wild ox.

The voice of the Lord flashes forth flames of fire.

The voice of the Lord shakes the wilderness; the Lord shakes the wilderness of Kadesh.

The voice of the Lord causes the oaks to whirl, and strips the forest bare; and in his temple all say, “Glory!”

The Lord sits enthroned over the flood; the Lord sits enthroned as king forever.

May the Lord give strength to his people! May the Lord bless his people with peace!

Food For Thought:

The line that stands out to me in this passage of Scripture is “May the Lord give strength to his people! May the Lord bless his people with peace!” When have you felt strengthened by God? When have you experienced God’s peace? How did that feel?

Prayer:

Lord God,

you revealed your Son in the waters of the Jordan

and anointed him with the power of the Holy Spirit

to proclaim good news to all people.

Sanctify us by the same Spirit,

that we may proclaim the healing power of the gospel

by acts of love in your name. Amen.
