Psalm 68 paints the picture of a powerful, victorious God who is worthy of praise. As you read through the psalm today, make a note of the words that remind you of strength, victory, majesty, and praise. I lost count after the first few stanzas. Even these last verses are nearly overflowing.
32 O kingdoms of the earth, sing to God;Psalm 68:32-35, ESV
sing praises to the Lord, Selah
33 to him who rides in the heavens, the ancient heavens;
behold, he sends out his voice, his mighty voice.
34 Ascribe power to God,
whose majesty is over Israel,
and whose power is in the skies.
35 Awesome is God from his sanctuary;
the God of Israel—he is the one who gives power and strength to his people.
Blessed be God!
