Today's Verse: Psalm 29:2

Monday, January 24, 2005

Ascribe to the LORD the glory due his name; worship the LORD in the splendor of his holiness.
— Psalm 29:2

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

Giving glory, ascribing glory, is not an easy thing for us to do. Let's admit it. We are so self-focused. We're much more used to asking from God rather than praising and thanking God and calling others to join us in adoring him. Let's use the rest of this week to pray prayers of thanksgiving and praise, glorifying God's holy name. Try it! Choose a day this week and spend an hour in praise, adoration, reverence, and thanksgiving to God. (Don't ask for anything during this time, let it all be about who God is, what God has done, and ascribing the LORD the glory due him!)

My Prayer...

Father, I praise you, LORD, for you are marvelous and magnificent beyond my description and understanding yet have loved me as I am. Thank you for sending Jesus to help me catch a glimpse of your glory. Thank you for living inside me through your Holy Spirit. I praise you for sustaining me and those I love with your grace. I thank you, dear LORD, in Jesus' name. Amen.
