The Voice of the LORD

Psalm 29 encourages us to fearfully respect the voice of the LORD.

  • The voice of the LORD is over the waters (v. 3).
  • The voice of the LORD is powerful (v. 4).
  • The voice of the LORD is full of majesty (v. 4).
  • The voice of the LORD breaks the cedars (v. 5).
  • The voice of the LORD flashes forth flames of fire (v. 7).
  • The voice of the LORD shakes the wilderness (v. 8).
  • The voice of the LORD makes the oaks to shake and strips the forest bare (v. 9).

The LORD could crush every single one of us in an instant using nothing but his voice.

But he doesn’t.

In fact, he graciously invites us to use our voices to ascribe—to credit, to assign, to attribute, or to think of as belonging—certain things to him.

  • Ascribe to the LORD, O sons of God (v. 1).
  • Ascribe to the LORD glory and strength (v. 1).
  • Ascribe to the LORD the glory due his name (v. 2).
  • Worship the LORD in the splendor of holiness (v. 2).

You’ll use your voice a lot throughout the day.   That’s OK.   Just don’t waste it by neglecting to use it for the very reason it was created.
