Psalm 29:1–2 (ESV): "1 Ascribe to the Lord, O heavenly beings, ascribe to the Lord glory and strength. 2 Ascribe to the Lord the glory to his name; worship the Lord in the splendor of holiness."
Giving glory to God isn't a response to what He is doing in your life but to who He is! Even if He did nothing on your behalf He would still be worthy of our worship and praise. He is holy, worship Him.
When David penned this psalm it must have been a stormy night for he declares in it the power, majesty, and awesomeness of God Almighty. His voice thunders and flashes forth flames of fire. His omnipotence is clearly illustrated in a massive thunderstorm. Thus David declares, ascribe to Him glory for He is mighty and holy.
You don't need any reason to praise God Christian other than the fact that He is God. He is of a completely other, so set apart that our minds can't fathom the greatness of who He is but one day when we see Him enthroned in heaven we will join with the cheribum and angelic beings who surround the throne day and night declaring holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty, who was, and is, and is to come! You can start today by giving praise and adoration to the God of earth and heaven. No matter what, He is worthy of receiving all glory. So, ascribe to Him what is due to Him alone, amen?
Father, You alone are glorious and You deserve our utmost praise and adoration. There is none like You throughout the earth or in the heavens. You are the specimen of power, perfection, and beauty. May we give You all the glory due Your name both in word and deed. Never let us forget who You are Oh Lord. Remind us in the storms and in the clear skies that You alone are God and the only one worthy of our worship we pray in Jesus' name, amen!
