John 18
Psalm 29

Ascribe to the Lord, you heavenly beings,
    ascribe to the Lord glory and strength.
Ascribe to the Lord the glory due his name;
    worship the Lord in the splendour of his holiness.

The voice of the Lord is over the waters;
    the God of glory thunders,
    the Lord thunders over the mighty waters.
The voice of the Lord is powerful;
    the voice of the Lord is majestic.

Psalm 29:1-4

At times, we slip and think more highly of ourselves than we ought. And our realm of importance will extend to our family along with a few close friends. In one of Paul Tripp’s online articles he says, “…human beings are glory junkies. In other words, we’re all addicted to the pursuit of self-glory.”

When we read Psalm 29, we discover that our self-glory bubble that we live in explodes in an instant. David shows us that God is far more significant and superior than us mere mortals! And there is no comparison or distinction that can stand against this truth.

Now we can never over emphasise the glory, holiness, power and majesty of God because this is who He is and therefore it’s important that we stand in awe of Him. By possessing these attributes, it must challenge and encourage us to a BIG VIEW of God; seeing Him as more superior and greater than anything or anyone in all creation.

When we acknowledge and accept God in this way, we will desire to give Him the proper worship that He deserves in all areas of our lives – in our speech and actions. It will also affect our relationship with God and one another, and our life at home and in the workplace. And it will show people that God alone is the only true and living God, who made everything, and put everything in its place.
