04/23/18 Worship Him

READING: Psalms 81, 88, 92, 93

“It is good to give thanks to the Lord.”

Psalm 92:1

Yesterday, many of us worshiped the Lord in our various churches. We heard prayers, sang songs, gave offerings, listened to sermons, and fellowshipped with others. I wonder, though, if we truly realize the blessing of doing what we did. I also wonder if we understand the value of our own daily, personal worship. The psalmist knew how important worship is, and he expressed his thoughts in clear and powerful words: “It is good to give thanks to the Lord, to sing praise to your name, Most High, to declare your faithful love in the morning and your faithfulness at night, with a ten-stringed harp and the music of a lyre” (Psa. 92:1-3).

It is indeed good to give thanks to the Lord, to recognize that all that we are and have is a gift of God. We have life itself because God has chosen to grant it. It is also good to sing His praises, to lift our voices to express our heart in song. Spoken from the heart and accompanied by musical instrumentation, there’s something special about the combined voices of God’s people. And, it is quite good to declare His love in the morning and His faithfulness at night. We begin the day under the umbrella of His love, and we end the day having noted His faithfulness throughout that day. God is so good that He has made us rejoice, and shouting for joy is the natural response to His goodness. 

So, use this day to worship the Lord in your own life. Read His Word. Give Him thanks. Sing His praises. Share His goodness with others. Declare His name to your family, neighbors, co-workers, and friends. Shout for joy!


  • Begin the day by giving thanks to God. List your blessings, and honor Him. 
  • Be sure to tell somebody today about God’s goodness. Plan now for who that person might be. 

PRAYER: “Lord, You are just, and You are my rock. I praise You!”
