The Daily Fountain Daily Devotional of the Church Of Nigeria (Anglican Communion) 10 July 2019 – Worship The Lord
TOPIC: Worship The Lord
READ: Psalms 29:1-11 King James Version (KJV)
1 Give unto the Lord , O you mighty ones, Give unto the Lord glory and strength.
2 Give unto the Lord the glory due to His name; Worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness.
3 The voice of the Lord is over the waters; The God of glory thunders; The Lord is over many waters.
4 The voice of the Lord is powerful; The voice of the Lord is full of majesty.
5 The voice of the Lord breaks the cedars, Yes, the Lord splinters the cedars of Lebanon.
6 He makes them also skip like a calf, Lebanon and Sirion like a young wild ox.
7 The voice of the Lord divides the flames of fire.
8 The voice of the Lord shakes the wilderness; The Lord shakes the Wilderness of Kadesh.
9 The voice of the Lord makes the deer give birth, And strips the forests bare; And in His temple everyone says, “Glory!”
10 The Lord sat enthroned at the Flood, And the Lord sits as King forever.
11 The Lord will give strength to His people; The Lord will bless His people with peace.
The Psalmist, in today’s text, set a good example for us. After numerous Psalms in which he agonized over being chased by enemies, denied justice by wicked people and experiencing delay in receiving answers to his prayers, he realized the need to worship God. He called for all creation to worship God the Creator and Ruler of the world. God is great. Throughout history, God has revealed His power through mighty miracles over nature as we have in the case of the great flood (Genesis 7:17-20). The power of God controls creation and raises the dead. The same power that raised Jesus from the dead is available today to help us with our daily problems.
True personal worship that flows from the inner heart to God is seriously lacking among us today. Learn to worship God. Appreciate God for the gift of nature. Don’t allow your daily life challenges hinder you from worshiping the source and sustainer of your life. Sing praises to Him and ensure that your heart acknowledges His glorious work in your life.
Prayer Point: Take time today to worship God. Thank Him for His goodness and wonderful works to humanity.
