Psalm 29:1-2
1 Ascribe to the Lord, you heavenly beings,
    ascribe to the Lord glory and strength.
2 Ascribe to the Lord the glory due to his name;
    worship the Lord in the splendour of his holiness.

After a few searching days, we end the week on a high note, a reminder of the greatness of God. The psalmist calls upon the highest beings he knows of, the heavenly beings, to confess and celebrate that God is higher than even they. There is none that is as great as he. But how does God display his likeness? In an arrogant display that declares look at me? No, through the humility of the Cross, as we are reminded in Philippians 2, in light of the humble sacrificial love of Jesus. Because of this, Philippians tells us, ‘God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.‘ (Phil. 2:9-11)

Take time to bow before God, Father, Son and Spirit, declaring his greatness.
