Psalm 33:1-9
SUNDAY MEDITATION


The following verses taken from the 33rd Psalm capture the spirit of authentic worship:

 

Psalm 33:1-9

Rejoice in the Lord, O you righteous!
For praise from the upright is beautiful.
Praise the Lord with the harp;
Make melody to Him with an instrument of ten strings.
Sing to Him a new song;
Play skillfully with a shout of joy.

For the word of the Lord is right,
And all His work is done in truth.
He loves righteousness and justice;
The earth is full of the goodness of the Lord.

 

By the word of the Lord the heavens were made . . .

. . . and all the host of them by the breath of His mouth.
He gathers the waters of the sea together as a heap . . .

 . . . He lays up the deep in storehouses.

Let all the earth fear the Lord;
Let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of Him.
For He spoke, and it was done;
He commanded, and it stood fast.

 

True worship transcends tradition or duty. Worship expressed with heart-felt praise and reverential awe is an appropriate response to God’s wisdom, power and goodness.  May your worship, today, be a sincere and joyful expression of gratitude for all He has done for us.
