Tyron's post. It's great.
In response to the applause that the Olympic athletes are receiving, here is a great Psalm, which gives God the Praise that He deserves.
"Applause, everyone. Bravo, bravissimo! Shout God-songs at the top of
your lungs! God Most High is stunning, astride land and ocean. He
crushes hostile people, puts nations at our feet. He set us at the
head of the line, prize-winning Jacob, his favorite. Loud
cheers as God climbs the mountain, a ram's horn blast at the summit.
Sing songs to God, sing out! Sing to our King, sing praise! He's Lord
over earth, so sing your best songs to God. God is Lord of godless
nations— sovereign, he's King of the mountain. Princes from all over
are gathered, people of Abraham's God. The powers of earth are God's—
he soars over all." - Psalm 47 (Message)
Next time we clap for the Athletes let's send up an extra round of Applause for God.
Living in Grace
