Psalm 95-97

“Let us come to him with thanksgiving. Let us sing psalms of praise to him. For the Lord is a great God, a great king above all gods.” 95:1

Sometimes I need the simple remind that God is better than the other things I worship in his place. Of course I know this, but obviously I doubt it when I reach for my laptop to binge watch Netflix when I’m overwhelmed, instead of coming to him.

He’s better than my husband. He’s better than food (even cheese). He’s better than new clothes, a bigger house, a killer haircut and losing weight. He’s better than people liking me.

This morning, I’m repenting of the ways I turn from him and worship lifeless idols. Like the psalmist, I’m coming to him with thanksgiving. I want to sing psalms of praise to him, because he is a great God.

What’s stopping you from worshipping him fully? Is there something you need to cast aside? Are you hiding from him? Stop and ask yourself how you can connect more deeply with him today.
