Psalms 29 : The voice of the Lord in the Storm
Psalms 29 interprets God in two aspects. The first part is a description of the voice of the Lord, showing us who God is.
Psalms 29:1 “Ascribe to the Lord, O sons of the mighty, Ascribe to the Lord glory and strength.”
“Regard or respect something as being due to (a cause/source)”
David uses the word ascribe, which means to show regard something as due to a cause. I may say I was angry because my children misbehaved. Therefore, David here is showing God in a different way than before.
1) God’s identity is shown through us. He describes us as SONS of the MIGHTY Because, these are no ordinary sons it means that their Lord is no ordinary Lord. OUR IDENTITY was once dead, now we are ALIVE because our SAVIOUR has RISEN.
2) The evidence of God is in his majesty. Because we see GLORY & STRENGTH, it is the image of God himself. Therefore, we regard & we worship him.

We often think, that God does not hear us due to the loud storms but here is David, a man who has been through many storms, “running away from his son, losing his wife and the wives of many men, Saul, pretending to be crazy & being in the middle of the sleeping enemy’s camp” giving us a testimony
Psalms 29:3 “The voice of the Lord is over the waters; The God of glory thunders; The Lord is over many
Through anything, God is still over the situations. Isaiah 59:1 Behold, the Lord’s hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear. Even though the Storms roar Psalms 29:11 promises that the Lord will give strength to His people; The Lord will bless His people with peace.
May the Lord give you strength and bless you with peace in the storm.
