BRAVOS TO GOD!

Psalms – Prayers of Honesty

 

Sometimes you just have to stop and praise the God who made everything and everyone. He knows the storms hit, floods come, earthquakes happen, and then peace. A silent blessed peace. Restoration comes next.

I think of praises to God for his care during and after flooding in Nicaragua where friends live to help those they love find and follow Jesus. I think of praises to God when I read about how people who live in Panama City are reaching out with all they have to help others through losing stuff to live life. This next Psalm is dedicated to all of you.

Psalm 29, The Message
A David Psalm

1-2 Bravo, God, bravo!
Gods and all angels shout, “Encore!”
In awe before the glory,
in awe before God’s visible power.
Stand at attention!
Dress your best to honor him!

3 God thunders across the waters,
Brilliant, his voice and his face, streaming brightness—
God, across the flood waters.

4 God’s thunder tympanic,
God’s thunder symphonic.

5 God’s thunder smashes cedars,
God topples the northern cedars.

6 The mountain ranges skip like spring colts,
The high ridges jump like wild kid goats.

7-8 God’s thunder spits fire.
God thunders, the wilderness quakes;
He makes the desert of Kadesh shake.

9 God’s thunder sets the oak trees dancing
A wild dance, whirling; the pelting rain strips their branches.
We fall to our knees—we call out, “Glory!”

10 Above the floodwaters is God’s throne
from which his power flows,
from which he rules the world.

11 God makes his people strong.
God gives his people peace.

God is still with us. God will makes us strong in and through the storms of this life. God gives us peace when our eyes look to Him with praise and adoration.

I pray for peace. I pray for restoration in all ways.
In Jesus Name, Amen
