“God reigns over the nations. He sits on His holy throne.” (47:8)
Some days, I think this is all we need to remember. Maybe this single fact is why we haven’t disintegrated in a nuclear holocaust… yet (too dark?).
It can be easy to forget just how central worshiping God is supposed to be in our lives. I think it’s healthy to worship Him. It brings to life something at the very core of us to exalt our Creator.
“O clap your hands, all peoples; shout to God with the voice of joy.” (47:1)
“Sing praises to God, sing praises; sing praises to our King, sing praises. For God is the King of all the earth; sing praises with a skillful psalm.” (47:6-7)
“Great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised” (48:1)
Let’s bring joy into our day through praises of our Great LORD! I know, I don’t always naturally get here. Even in worship services, I can easily fade to the back of the room (Repetitive choruses don’t hold my attention very long. yeah I’m one of those). This makes me need to be a little more proactive about how I worship Him. Sometimes it’s recognizing that He’s there, and holy and just, and perfect, and loving, and right. Maybe it’s singing the song that is in my heart. Sometimes it’s reading these Psalms out-loud and agreeing!
