“The voice of the LORD is over the waters; The God of glory thunders; The LORD is over many waters. The voice of the LORD is powerful; The voice of the LORD is full of majesty. (Psalm 29:3,4).
Psalm 29 speaks of glory and power! This is the name of God, not our own! God is a God we can see quite clearly. He speaks in nature, He abides in our praise. Give thanks to Him this very hour, in the good the bad and even the sour!
“And we’ll understand it better, by and by, by and by…” We’ll understand it when we praise Him and give Him focus with our eye!
“The voice of the LORD breaks the cedars, Yes, the LORD splinters the cedars of Lebanon. He makes them also skip like a calf, Lebanon and Sirion like a young wild ox. The voice of the LORD divides the flames of fire.” (Psalm 29:5-7).
Who can do all that? Nothing is impossible with God! We will understand it when we praise Him and give Him focus with our eye!
“We are often tossed and driv’n on the restless sea of time, rolling clouds and howling tempests oft succeed a bright sunshine; in that land of perfect day, when the mists have rolled away, We will understand it better by and by.”(Charles A. Tindley , We’ll understand It Better By and By).
“The voice of the LORD shakes the wilderness; The LORD shakes the Wilderness of Kadesh. The voice of the LORD makes the deer give birth, And strips the forests bare; And in His temple everyone says, “Glory!” The LORD sat enthroned at the Flood, And the LORD sits as King forever.”(Psalm 29:8-10).
Psalm 29 gives voice to the King Who reigns forever on the throne. Tindley’s hymn gives us hope to sing. Fixing our hearts on faith, and waiting and trusting in Him. The One Who is able accomplish exceedingly things! Shall we agree and give to God the glory due His name, even in times of sadness and great loss and pain?
“Trials dark on every hand, and we cannot understand, All the ways that God would lead us to that blessed promised land; But He’ll guide us with His eye, and we’ll follow Him until we die, We will understand it better by and by. “
“And we’ll understand it better by and by.”
Dear LORD, this is our sacrifice of praise to You today, we choose to worship and we choose to offer You praise:
“Give unto the LORD, O you mighty ones, Give unto the LORD glory and strength. Give unto the LORD the glory due to His name; Worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness.” (Psalm 29:1,2).
Just as the strings can vibrate the waters, our vocal chords will sing. We will sing of Your greatness, Your forgiveness and love. We’ll rest by the stirring up of the waters of our soul – with hope, for now, and with faith, hope, and love forevermore!
” He will guide us with His eye, and we’ll follow Him ’till we die, and we’ll understand it better by and by,
by and by …”
