Psalm 50:1-8, 22-23
The mighty one, God the Lord, speaks and summons the earth from the rising of the sun to its setting.
Out of Zion, the perfection of beauty, God shines forth.
Our God comes and does not keep silence, before him is a devouring fire, and a mighty tempest all around him.
He calls to the heavens above and to the earth, that he may judge his people:
“Gather to me my faithful ones, who made a covenant with me by sacrifice!”
The heavens declare his righteousness, for God himself is judge.
“Hear, O my people, and I will speak, O Israel, I will testify against you. I am God, your God.
Not for your sacrifices do I rebuke you; your burnt offerings are continually before me.
“Mark this, then, you who forget God, or I will tear you apart, and there will be no one to deliver.
Those who bring thanksgiving as their sacrifice honor me; to those who go the right way I will show the salvation of God.”
Food For Thought:
This is a Psalm showing how mighty God is. Today, I want to encourage you to write a psalm of might to God. How have you seen God work in mighty ways in the world? How does it make you feel to know that we worship a mighty God?
For the healing of the nations, O God,
you raised up your Son on the wood of the cross
and exalted him as the Lord of all creation.
Grant that all who believe in him
may have the gift of eternal life
and share in the glory of your kingdom,
where you live forever and ever. Amen.
