“Ascribe to the Lord, O heavenly beings, ascribe to the Lord glory and strength.
Ascribe to the Lord the glory due his name; worship the Lord in the splendor of holiness.
The voice of the Lord is over the waters; the God of glory thunders, the Lord, over many waters.
The voice of the Lord is powerful; the voice of the Lord is full of majesty.
The Lord sits enthroned over the flood; the Lord sits enthroned as king forever.
May the Lord give strength to his people! May the Lord bless his people with peace!
Psalm 29:1-4, 10-11
Hurricane Harvey and the hiddenness of God. We ask the question “why,” but God on His throne who is beyond our understanding doesn’t give us the answer. His voice however booms “I am with you always. I will never leave you nor forsake you! I will give you strength! I will give you peace!”
God the Father gave us His Son, Jesus, who stemmed the damning flood of sin in our lives by shedding His blood for us. And by His almighty power He raised Jesus from the dead. His powerful voice now bids us to call upon Him in the day of trouble–In the midst of deep waters, call to Him, and He will answer!
Lord God, we see the rising flood waters and are afraid. Please turn our eyes to Jesus who sits at Your right Hand in Heaven. Help us to trust in Him during these difficult times. We trust in Your faithfulness to hear our prayer for Jesus’ sake. Amen.
