Psalms 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 his name; worship the Lord in the splendor of his holiness.
Ascribe isn’t a commonly used word any more. It means to to credit to, or to attribute to.
We’re being told to give God his due, recognize Him for who He is and how freaking powerful He is, how perfectly holy He is.
Perfectly holy, perfectly sacred, perfectly divine, perfectly love. Not like me, perfectly holey. He’s perfect, I’m not.
Reality is that I get the roles reversed in my mind. I tend to take credit for what He blesses me with and give Him credit for all all the bad stuff, as in “why God, why?”.
Ascribe to the Lord the greatness He is.
I need to ascribe more to Him and less to me. I need an ascribtion to cure me of what ails me: me.
