“Let the whole earth sing to the Lord!
Each day proclaim the good news that He saves.
Publish His glorious deeds among the nations.
Tell everyone about the amazing things He does.
Great is the Lord! He is most worthy of praise!
He is to be feared above all gods.
The gods of others are mere idols,
but the Lord made the heavens!
Honor and majesty surround Him;
strength and joy fill His dwelling…
Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good.
His faithful love endures forever.“
1 Chronicles 16:23-27, 34 NLT
David sure knew how to worship. He sure knew how to praise.
After reading through his legacy, knowing full well he wasn’t perfect, I wonder if that’s why God loved Him so. David always gave credit where credit was due. If his army won a battle, he would make sure everyone knew it was the Lord that won, not himself. Even when he didn’t get his way, David still worshiped.
And I can’t help but notice every time we get to read how David praised Jehovah, his words are applicable today. These words were penned thousands of years ago and can still be proclaimed in the 21st century.
It seems any tribute of praise towards God is timeless.
For God’s faithfulness has stood the test of time.
His love truly does endure forever.
And The Great I Am hasn’t changed one bit.
That in and of itself is something worth praising. That’s worth proclaiming.
I kinda like David’s way with words. I’m sure David wouldn’t mind if I praise Jehovah myself while quoting him. In fact, I often do.
But I really like the idea of writing down my own words of worship. Somehow. For if any words will stand the test of time, it will be those of praise to the Most High.
How about you? Do you write your worship? Do you pen praise? If so, how? I’d love to hear.
Thanks for sharing your time with me.
