Your Truth Reaches to the Clouds
Today’s Text: Psalm 108:1-5
To King David, genuine praise was integral to worship:
O God, my heart is steadfast;
I will sing and give praise, even with my glory.
Awake, lute and harp!
I will awaken the dawn.
I will praise You, O Lord, among the peoples,
And I will sing praises to You among the nations.
For Your mercy is great above the heavens,
And Your truth reaches to the clouds.
Be exalted, O God, above the heavens,
And Your glory above all the earth.
Although Israel’s enemies surrounded him, David offered praise with a heart of faith confident that God would ultimately give victory.
David’s praise wasn’t compartmentalized or limited to a specific period of time. His worship began before sunrise—was exuberant—was accompanied by musical instruments— and testified to God’s grace among the nations!
Today, let your corporate worship reflect a lifestyle of enthusiastic praise and wholehearted gratitude for not only what God has done, but also for who He is!
