Psalm 29 Worship, Hear and Obey


Ascribe to the Lord O sons of the mighty. Are we sons of God? Yes we are! Jesus called God His Father and the Pharisees thought it was blasphemy. They knew the Bible but they did not know God. 

Jesus said if they knew Moses they would follow the works of Moses and know that Jesus did the works of God. They rejected the works of Jesus. 

 There are 3 ascribes and one worship in the beginning of the psalm. Then in the Psalm there are 7 voices of God. When we worship God we will hear God. 

 Ascribe to the Lord O sons of the mighty. As we act on the fact we are sons. As we know we are sons. As we become confident we are sons. As we rely the true fact we are sons and act accordingly, we hear. 

 Ascribe to the Lord the glory and strength. As we state that God has glory and power to fulfil what He is leading us to do we hear God. When we hear God we are empowered. If we believe God, we will act on what we hear. Because God will do what He says if we believe.

 Ascribe to the Lord the glory due to His name. God deserves our praise. When something is due we owe it to Him. God has given, we have life. Responding to what God gives allows life to flow. To withhold, to block what God gives, stops the flow of ability. 

 Yes we can continue to live by not ascribing to God the glory due His name. But kingdom living responds to the gift in worship. 

 Worship the Lord in holy array. What is holy? It is what is used for God. What do we put on to use for God. The robe of righteousness. The armor of God. The armor of light. We worship standing ready to serve. 

 The voice of the Lord is upon the waters. What are the waters. It is God's people. God's voice goes forth to us. When we are with the people of God we hear the voice of God. 

 On the waters there is no building, trees or hills obstructing His voice. Put yourself in a place to hear God. God of glory thunders. There is power in hearing God. And be assured God is over many people and many tribes, nations and groups. 

 The voice of the Lord is powerful. What an understatement! And God said let there be light and there was light. And this command is continuing to expand the universe at the speed of light. And God said be fruitful and multiply and there are seven billion people living on earth today. What He says empowers. Respond to what He says and you will have His power working for you. 

 The voice of the Lord is majestic. Spurgeon – “As for the written Word of God, the majesty is apparent in its style, matter and power. Blessed be God, it is the majesty of mercy wielding a silver scepter. Our salvation is full to overflowing with this majesty.-” 

 The voice of the Lord breaks the cedars. There is nothing that can stand before God. The cedars are majestic, but this majesty is nothing when compared to the voice of the Lord. 

 He makes Lebanon skip like a calf, and Sirion like a young wild ox. There is revival in hearing God's voice. There is youthful vigor in hearing God's voice. There is vitality in hearing God's voice. Do you lack energy? Do you need strength? Do you need direction? Hear God and you will be energised. 

 The voice of the Lord hews out flames of fire. God is a consuming fire. God baptises in the Holy Spirit and fire. God spoke to Moses from the fire of the bush. God purifies with fire. Lightening of God's voice changes everything. 

 The voice of the Lord shakes the wilderness. God causes what has been rejected, what has been ignored, what has been left for being useless to whirl and be stirred up. Has your life been useless and of no value? Hear the voice of God and everything will change. 

 The voice of the Lord makes the deer to calve. God brings to birth what has been barren. There will be no one barren who lives in God's kingdom. Ex 23:26 

 He strips the forests bare. There is no hiding from God. There is nothing hidden from God. God knows all and sees all. 

 And in His temple everything says, Glory! Come before God with praise. Come to Him in holy array. Come boldly before Him Hebrews 4:16 

 God is king and sat at the flood and continues to be king and sits on His throne today. 

 There will be strength and peace for  God”s people. Worship, hear and obey.
