O God, my heart is steadfast;
I will sing and give praise, even with my glory.
Awake, lute and harp!
I will awaken the dawn.
I will praise You, O Lord, among the peoples,
And I will sing praises to You among the nations.
For Your mercy is great above the heavens,
And Your truth reaches to the clouds.
Be exalted, O God, above the heavens,
And Your glory above all the earth.
We can summarize David’s Psalm chapter 108 verses 1-5 by concluding that he is making a strong effort to lead us into God’s holy presence and to teach us the importance of praising God with a true, sincere, and faithful heart. God will be pleased with this action on our part. We are also reminded that surrendering our life to God is a must- then and only then, is God pleased with our heart of worship. Let us worship Him- morning, noon, and night. His blessings will overflow in our hearts and in our lives when we do. Glory to God in the highest!
Sovereign Lord and Savior, your Word clearly tells us that we were created to worship you in spirit and in truth. May we start each day and end our day- praising you for all you do daily in our lives. Lead and guide us as we seek to do your will. Amen.
