Looking at the Psalms
Psalm 29,66,95, & 96
29:2, Ascribe to the LORD the glory due His name; worship the LORD in the splendor of holiness.
There is a footnote that holiness could also be holy attire. This could be a reason that we dress so formerly for Sunday worship. But could we not also be mindful of what we wear on a daily basis out of respect for God and for ourselves? There many ways to worship Him on a daily basis.
66:4, All the earth worships You and sings praises to You; they sing praises to Your name.
We do sing Him praises when we gather to worship on Sunday but do we sing Him praises when we are not in church? Could we not incorporate some praise music into our daily lives?
95:1-2, 6, Oh come, let us sing to the LORD; let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation! Let us come into His presence with thanksgiving; let us make a joyful noise to Him with songs of praise! … Oh come, let us worship and bow down; let us kneel before the LORD, our Maker!
Make a joyful noise? When was the last time you made a joyful noise unto the Lord? Bowing down is a matter of the heart and humbling oneself before our God. It signifies surrender.
96:3-4, Declare His glory among the nations, His marvelous works among all the peoples! For great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised; He is to be feared above all gods.
When was the last time you shared your God story with someone and told them of the marvelous things that He has done in Your life? For me it has been amazing to share my God story with others. It has been healing, uplifting, and I have been a blessing to someone else.
Long and short of it is to tell of His marvelous works, make a joyful noise unto the Lord, and sing praises unto His name. This is just s few ways to worship His majesty. We honor Him in all we that do by remembering that it is in doing unto others and sharing Him with those we know that brings Him honor. If we live a life that is God honoring then others will want what we have.
May your life bring Him honor and thus be worshiping Him. In what ways can you worship God on a daily basis?
My Prayer: Lord God, may all that I say and do bring honor to Your Holy Name. Forgive me, Father, when my actions do not bring You honor. Amen.
