Our Response



  • Read Psalm 29 aloud. Which images stand out to you as you read this Psalm aloud? How do these images help you understand God more deeply? Be specific.
  • Why do you think God’s people are commanded to worship Him? What does worship do for us? What does worship do for God?
  • Read the story of Jesus and Peter walking on water (Matthew 14:22-33) and Psalm 29 together. What fresh connections do you see?


  • Do you tend to see God more as a consuming storm or a safe refuge? Why is it important to hold these two together? What is lacking if we ignore one of these truths?
  • When are you most tempted to doubt God’s goodness or sovereignty? How might the truth of this Psalm (and others) address those doubts?


  • Consider spending extended time this week listening to some of your favorite worship music and/or reading through the Psalms. Then reflect on the experience with a friend or family member. What sort of emotions did the experience produce? Why?
