Come, let us sing for joy to the Lord; let us shout aloud to the Rock of our salvation.
Let us come before him with thanksgiving and extol him with music and song.
Come, let us bow down in worship, let us kneel before the Lord our Maker; for he is our God and we are the people of his pasture, the flock under his care. Psalm 92: 1-2, 6-7
Come, let us bow down in worship, let us kneel before the Lord our Maker
A week, Lord. No really all month where we focus on being thankful.
I know I should be thankful all the time and have felt the practice of gratitude increase in my life.
I do join the psalmist here in singing for joy unto you, Lord.
I shout my praises aloud to You, my Rock.
With overflowing thanksgiving, I worship You with songs and music.
But Lord I almost missed the sixth and seventh verse.
I dash into your presence with my thanks.
I jump up and dance with the music.
I am more than willing to praise You in my manner of worship.
But how often do I bow before You in true submission?
Rarely do I kneel anymore before Your throne.
Lord, forgive me for being lazy and half-hearted.
I pause now and bow before my Lord.
I lower my head and sink to the floor upon my knees.
You are God.
You are King.
You are Creator.
You are the Giver of all things.
Thank you for taking care of us, the people of Your pasture.
Thank you for being the almighty Lord of all, our God.
