Encouragement for your daily walk with God
It has been 2,000 years since Jesus stopped at a well and spoke with a woman about worship [see John 4:4-26]. She had some issues with worship, and the Lord had to help her through them. I’m not so sure that we’ve worked all the kinks out of our worship either. We struggle in prayer, fumble through Scripture, question whether to kneel or stand, to raise or lower our hands and voices; all that to say, worship is a daunting task.
That’s why I like the Psalms. It’s like a worship manual for God’s people. It’s a collection of hymns, prayers, laments, petitions, and praises with one thing in common — they were written for a heart that is hungry for God!
The variety reminds us that worship is profoundly personal. There is no secret formula for the perfect worship scenario. What moves you closer to God may cause another to withdraw, because we each worship differently — but worship we must!
Come, let us worship and bow down; let us kneel before the LORD our Maker. For He is our God, and we are the people of His pasture, and the sheep of His hand. Psalm 95:6-7
