Oh come, let us sing to the Lord! Let us shout joyfully to the rock of our salvation. Let us come before His presence with thanksgiving; Let us shout joyfully to Him with psalms.
For the Lord is the great God, And the great King above all gods. In His hand are the deep places of the earth; The heights of the hills are His also. The sea is His, for He made it; And His hands formed the dry land. Psalm 95 NKJV
There is no better reason to worship God than His authority over creation. His power is beyond measure. His glory is beyond comprehension. Jesus is worthy of our praise and worship. He desires our love and affection. Jesus loves us unconditionally!
Jesus wants us to sing to Him. The Father wants calls us to shout joyfully to the rock of our salvation. He wants us to come before Him in thanksgiving. There is sublime beauty in praise that blesses the worshiper as much as the object of our worship!
In ancient times people worshiped many gods. Today people worship false gods without identifying them as such. The sin is just as great. The idols are just as worthless!
“Do not harden your hearts, as in the rebellion, as in the day of trial in the wilderness, When your fathers tested me; They tried Me though they saw My work. For forty years I was grieved with that generation, And said, ‘It is a people who go astray in their hearts, And they do not know My ways.’ So I swore in My wrath, ‘They shall not enter My rest.’ ” Vs 8-11
The people God led out of Egypt rebelled against Him. They tested Him even though He revealed His power over the false god’s of the Egyptians. They went astray in their hearts because they never learned His ways. God was grieved by them. He did not let them enter into His rest in the land of promise.
Jesus is leading people out of bondage today. Jesus takes pleasure in revealing His power over the false God’s and idols of our generation. Jesus is warning us not to test Him. He is doing it out of love and affection for us.
Do not grieve the Lord. Do not go astray in your heart. Learn God’s ways. Enter into the Lord’s rest in the eternal land of promise!
Sing out loud to the Lord. Shout joyfully to the rock of your salvation. Come before Him with thanksgiving. Stay true to Jesus in your heart. Our Lord is the great God, And the great King above all false god’s and idols!
Jesus wants you to return the love and affection He pours out on you!
