Praise the Lord! For it is good to sing praises to our God; for it is pleasant, and praise is beautiful” Psalm 147:1
Some days we wake up heavy and already frustrated and flustered with the day. In the midst of these moments like the scripture says; worship.
As I read my daily devotion from Stormie Omartian’s “The Praying Woman”. I realise that praise and worship is a key part of my day. I must start the day with worship, worship during the day and end with praise and worship because God is to be glorified.
“Although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened.” Amen! I repent of this because truly we all need to worship God more and we don’t worship him as we should! Today’s reminder however, is to!
Sing and worship God today, right now in this moment open your heart and spirit to receive his goodness and just sing praises to him. He is more than worthy of our praise.
After all, here you are yet again, with your eyes opened, breathing, living.
Let everything that has breath PRAISE THE LORD!
Offer to God Thanksgiving, and pay your vows to the Most high. Call upon Me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you shall glorify Me. Psalm 50:14-15
But let all who take refuge in you be glad; let them ever sing for joy. Spread your protection over them, that those who love your name may rejoice in you. Surely, Lord, you bless the righteous; you surround them with your favor as with a shield. Psalm 5: 11-12
I will praise you, Lord, with all my heart; before the “gods” I will sing your praise. I will bow down toward your holy temple and will praise your name for your unfailing love and your faithfulness, for you have so exalted your solemn decree that it surpasses your fame. When I called, you answered me; you greatly emboldened me.
Psalm 138: 1-3
Those who sacrifice thank offerings honor me, and to the blameless I will show my salvation.”
Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in the Spirit and in truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks. God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in the Spirit and in truth.”
John 4 23-24
Ponder on these scriptures and truly when you worship and praise God from your heart today, your perspective will change, your heart will soften and you will note the bigger picture. God is to be praised lay your burdens down as you take the time to just worship.
