“Oh come, let us sing to the Lord! Let us shout joyfully to the Rock of our Salvation. Let us come before His Presence with thanksgiving; Let us shout joyfully to Him with psalms. For the Lord is the great God, and the great King above all gods. In His hand are the deep places of the earth; The heights of the hills are His also. The sea is His, for He made it; And His hands formed the dry land.
“Oh come, let us worship and bow down; Let us kneel before the Lord our Maker. For He is our God, and we are the people of His pasture, and the sheep under His care.”
There is something about this psalm that immediately reminds me WHO GOD IS and who i am. I can read these words and imagine the throne room of the Lord God. I can imagine throngs of people – His children, the Redeemed of the Lord – gathered at His feet, bowing down in worship, singing His praise, shouting, “Worthy is the Lamb of God!”
Wow! Just think…we will experience this in heaven. What a glorious day that will be!
Did you know you can experience the splendor of the Lord right now? God inhabits the praises of His people!
When we sing TO Him, not just ABOUT Him – when we acknowledge Him as the Rock of our Salvation – when we declare our love for Him with thanksgiving in our hearts – walls of separation come down. Our spirits leap in recognition of His Presence.
In our praise it is vital that we remember the Holiness of God. As much as we love and walk in the fact that Jesus is our brother and our friend, we must never compromise the majesty and holiness of the Lord our God.
Notice the posture of worship described in verse six, “Oh come, let us worship and bow down; Let us kneel before the Lord our Maker.”
Bow down. Kneel.
These are postures of humility.
God is not our puppet. God is not a legend or a tradition. He is not something we do on Sundays and Wednesdays.
God is the Creator of the universe.
God is the Holy One of Israel.
He is the God Most High, the All-Sufficient One.
He is the Everlasting Father, the Lord of Hosts.
He is my Shepherd.
The Lord God is the Great I AM!
Embrace this truth today. Dare to believe that God is Who He says He is.
He is worthy of our worship for He IS our God.
Praise You Father! We come before You with thanksgiving in our hearts, with desire to know You more. Teach us to praise You with our whole hearts. Accept the praise we offer to You in humility, acknowledging that You are the Great I AM. And to think, You dwell in the hearts of Your children because You love us. You are wonderful Lord. I love You.
