Devotion for Friday after the First Sunday in Advent

Bless the Lord, O my soul!
O Lord my God, you are very great!
You are clothed with splendor and majesty,
covering yourself with light as with a garment,
stretching out the heavens like a tent.
He lays the beams of his chambers on the waters;
he makes the clouds his chariot;
he rides on the wings of the wind;
he makes his messengers winds,
his ministers a flaming fire.
~ Psalm 104:1-4

God is clothed in glory, in splendor and majesty beyond our imagination. Such beautiful imagery—riding on the wings of the wind, the clouds his chariot. He deserves our reverence, awe, blessing, and honor. He is our Father. He loves us and wants a personal relationship with us. But sometimes we focus so much on His love and mercy that we overlook He sheer power and might and majesty.

Almighty, all powerful God, I praise You and worship You and give You glory. You alone are the Creator and Sustainer of all things, and Your majesty is beyond my comprehension. Hallelujah! Glory to God! Amen.

Note: These devotions are also available in print and e-reader formats.
