Psalm 67:7

Psalm 67

God be merciful to us and bless us,
And cause His face to shine upon us, Selah
That Your way may be known on earth,
Your salvation among all nations.

Let the peoples praise You, O God;
Let all the peoples praise You.
Oh, let the nations be glad and sing for joy!
For You shall judge the people righteously,
And govern the nations on earth. Selah

Let the peoples praise You, O God;
Let all the peoples praise You.
Then the earth shall [b]yield her increase;
God, our own God, shall bless us.
God shall bless us,
And all the ends of the earth shall fear Him.

You see if there is one thing to admire about David, and there are many, but it one in particular, is His pure Heart of worship for God.

David often would cry out to the Lord loudly, in the morning, evenings and at noon.

He praised God continuously through His struggle, and even when he fell into sin as we all do, He didn’t ask to be blameless before the Lord, he instead, submitted his plea for God to forgive him.

Worship is one of the few things that isn’t about anyone else but God. It isn’t about you and me, it is all about Him.

The God of the earth and the heavens and everything in between. He created us and He loves us fiercely.

Why not approach Him with reverence and fear?

What does your worship look like?

What is the atmosphere you are creating?

What idols do you have before God?

You see often we are willing to give time to everything else in our lives and give God (as Jamaicans would say) “di what lef”.

Leaving devotions to the very last second of your day, right when you are about to sleep or doing it quickly in the morning as some routine, whilst you getting ready for something else. Failing to give Him, your full attention.

When I was listening to a podcast the other day, it came to my attention that worship just doesn’t include singing our favourite songs aloud and reading that Bible. That’s great, but just like in every conversation, it is leaving space for God to respond. The quiet time. The time when you need to stop talking, stop texting, stop all worldly distractions, and just say Yes Lord, Daddy, My King, or whatever affectionate name you have for the Master, your servant is listening.

Worship is the way we live our lives. Does our life reflect Jesus? Do others see Jesus in us?

I charge you all to pray for a heart of worship like David. Purely loving God in the good times, in the hard times, in the times where disappointment sets in, in the times where we are super busy, and feel like God understands, just pray for that heart of Devotion to your Maker.

He is waiting to hear from you and use you and just bless abundantly.

lots of love,

Dayna

  1. Worship is indeed a way of life 🙂 Your post reminded me that I was created to worship, If I chose not to worship the Lord, I will worship something to someone of less value
