Verse of the Day - Worship

Psalm 95

1 Oh come, let us sing to the LORD!
         Let us shout joyfully to the Rock of our salvation.
2 Let us come before His presence with thanksgiving;
         Let us shout joyfully to Him with psalms.
3 For the LORD is the great God,
         And the great King above all gods.
4 In His hand are the deep places of the earth;
         The heights of the hills are His also.
5 The sea is His, for He made it;
         And His hands formed the dry land.
6 Oh come, let us worship and bow down;
         Let us kneel before the LORD our Maker.
7 For He is our God,
         And we are the people of His pasture,
         And the sheep of His hand.

What a great Psalm of praise to our God!!!

vs 6 is about us coming to God in reverence:

  • let us worship
  • let us bow down
  • let us kneel before God - who is our maker

vs 7 tells us why:

  • He is our God
  • we are His people - here we are likened unto sheep / and He is the Great Shepherd.

So why & how should we worship God:

  • He is the Rock of our salvation
  • Be thankful
  • Shout joyfully
  • He is a great Go
  • He is a great King
  • For He has made creation and has power over it!!!

What an Awesome God that we can Praise & Worship HIM!!!

How often do you take time to worship God???

You always lay it out so plainly! ..you remind us that it is ALL about God and not about us. I like how these are easy to read broken into points.
