ascribe to the Lord glory and strength.
May the Lord give strength to his people!
May the Lord bless his people with peace!”
(Psalm 29:1 &11, NRSV)
But so often, we slow down or become selective in asking those questions as we get older. I suppose we either do not necessarily see the importance of knowing some of those origins, or we are satisfied with our assumptions from whom or where something originates. Problem is that our assumed assumptions can have lots of influence on our perspectives and choices. For example, assuming the wrong source of strength can have us placing allegiance or commitment in places we may come to regret. Or doing the same around peace could result in missing the opportunity for peace entirely.
May you ascribe to the Lord the foundations of glory and strength, that you may personally know the strength and peace that only God can offer.
Peace and blessings to you, those you love, those who love you, and every son and daughter of God … Pastor Bob
