Strength and peace are byproducts of God’s gift and blessing to us.
The water of Noah’s day came as a penultimate response to man’s wickedness. Who is over the waters?
The heavenly throne of God is over the flood. Who is king forever?
He established the creation through His word. Who is the Word of God?
Jesus Christ the Lord is God’s Son and our Savior. He alone is able to provide the holy attire of our worship.
Without him, our “righteousness” is as filthy rags. WITH him, giving glory of God is part of our story.
Strength and peace come to encourage us in the midst of life’s challenges. – Teresa

Ascribe to the Lord Glory
A Psalm of David.
29 Ascribe to the Lord, O heavenly beings,[a]
ascribe to the Lord glory and strength.
2 Ascribe to the Lord the glory due his name;
worship the Lord in the splendor of holiness.[b]
3 The voice of the Lord is over the waters;
the God of glory thunders,
the Lord, over many waters.
4 The voice of the Lord is powerful;
the voice of the Lord is full of majesty.
5 The voice of the Lord breaks the cedars;
the Lord breaks the cedars of Lebanon.
6 He makes Lebanon to skip like a calf,
and Sirion like a young wild ox.
7 The voice of the Lord flashes forth flames of fire.
8 The voice of the Lord shakes the wilderness;
the Lord shakes the wilderness of Kadesh.
9 The voice of the Lord makes the deer give birth[c]
and strips the forests bare,
and in his temple all cry, “Glory!”
10 The Lord sits enthroned over the flood;
the Lord sits enthroned as king forever.
11 May the Lord give strength to his people!
May the Lord bless[d] his people with peace!
Psalm 29:1 Hebrew sons of God, or sons of might
Psalm 29:2 Or in holy attire
