Psalm 50: 1-3 (The Message)

From the dazzle of Zion,
God blazes into view.
Our God makes his entrance,
he's not shy in his coming.
Starbursts of fireworks precede him.

Put yourself in a shepherd’s shoes, or sandals as it were.

You’ve got the night shift, and you carefully watch your herd as the quiet night hovers like a blanket around you.


God bursts through the sky with a bright light and a shining angel. The heavenly messenger is soon joined by a multitude of angels singing, “Glory to God!”

This is some fireworks display! God comes in human form, and He does it with a crack in the sky and a bright bolt of lightning! The shepherds could not miss it, and who would want to? God made his entrance with a bang, and what a mighty celebration it was!

It’s only appropriate to do so, after all, He is the one who saves the world!

Pray: Make your entrance, burst through the dark clouds. Show us your glory. Amen.
