Ascribe

Today's reading: 1 Chronicles 16:23-36

Verses 28 and 29 of David’s song of praise recorded in 1 Chronicles 16 begins with the command to "Ascribe to the Lord glory and strength," and to "Ascribe to the Lord the glory due His name." I looked up the definition of the word "ascribe." What I found is that "ascribe" basically means to recognize, credit and/or attribute a quality or characteristic. So David is specifically directing us to recognize God for His wonder, splendor and magnificence, and actually includes a variety of ways to do this in the verses surrounding and following verses 28 and 29.

Are you an "ascriber" of God and His glory and strength? How have you recognized the wonder of God in the past week? Who have you recently told about God's power, strength and magnificence? Tami
