Does your love for God make your heart sing?
The psalms, many of them, were written as songs of worship. King David, in particular, loved to sing praises to His Lord. Whether he was tending his flock under a night sky, or sitting in his palace in Jerusalem, David had a heart for the Lord.
Psalm 104:1 says, “Praise the Lord, my soul. Lord my God, you are very great; you are clothed with splendor and majesty.”
In this kind of worship, we feel especially close to God. It is then we focus on His majesty and power. We feel close to Him, and are able to speak freely to Him.
This kind of intentional meditation on Higher Things also puts us in our place, and we mean that in the best sense of the phrase. Hierarchy in true religion is very important, and when we consider that the God we sing praises to loves us eternally, and always wants the best for us, well, it releases us to worship God with all our being.
It is then we are free.
Take time today to praise the Lord for Who He is, not forgetting the great things He has done for you.
He is very great!
Lord, you are awesome in ways we can barely understand. Even with those limitations, we love you with abandon. Amen.
