1 Let the godly sing for joy to the Lord;
it is fitting for the pure to praise him.
2 Praise the Lord with melodies on the lyre;
make music for him on the ten-stringed harp.
3 Sing a new song of praise to him;
play skillfully on the harp, and sing with joy.
4 For the word of the Lord holds true,
and we can trust everything he does.
5 He loves whatever is just and good;
the unfailing love of the Lord fills the earth.
6 The Lord merely spoke,
and the heavens were created.
He breathed the word,
and all the stars were born.
7 He assigned the sea its boundaries
and locked the oceans in vast reservoirs.
8 Let the whole world fear the Lord,
and let everyone stand in awe of him.
9 For when he spoke, the world began!
It appeared at his command.
10 The Lord frustrates the plans of the nations
and thwarts all their schemes.
11 But the Lord’s plans stand firm forever;
his intentions can never be shaken.
12 What joy for the nation whose God is the Lord,
whose people he has chosen as his inheritance.
13 The Lord looks down from heaven
and sees the whole human race.
14 From his throne he observes
all who live on the earth.
15 He made their hearts,
so he understands everything they do.
16 The best-equipped army cannot save a king,
nor is great strength enough to save a warrior.
17 Don’t count on your warhorse to give you victory--
for all its strength, it cannot save you.
18 But the Lord watches over those who fear him,
those who rely on his unfailing love.
19 He rescues them from death
and keeps them alive in times of famine.
20 We put our hope in the Lord.
He is our help and our shield.
21 In him our hearts rejoice,
for we trust in his holy name.
22 Let your unfailing love surround us, Lord,
for our hope is in you alone.
We,oftentimes, as believers have a difficult time with God's Lordship in our life! However, as a worshipper it's an essential part of worship. To say our God is Lord, is to say that HE (The Only Wise God) has Power and Authority over me! This aspect is HARD for us to grasp in the way that God really wants us to. We want things our way, in the manner that we feel is best and that's it! But IS HE LORD???? I can imagine what will happen in our daily lives, if we position ourselves for God to be Lord of our lives. What will happen in our personal and corporate worship if we ask HIM to be Lord and trust HIM to be just that! I believe that this is the level of worship that God wants HIS church/ EVERY BELIEVER to reside in.
Psalms 33 discusses the character of the LORD! Let's yield ourselves more to the Father that He may REIGN as LORD over our Lives, In Jesus' Name!
*Be Blessed & Be ReFreshed!!!!*
Raine's heart is burdened with the passion to share with others different resources that will keep the passion, honor, and value for worship unto God ALIVE!
