Scripture:
“Come, let us sing for joy to the Lord;
let us shout aloud to the Rock of our salvation.
Let us come before him with thanksgiving
and extol him with music and song.

Come, let us bow down in worship,
let us kneel before the Lord our Maker;
for he is our God
and we are the people of his pasture,
the flock under his care.” ~Psalm 95:1-2, 6-7

Observation:
The Psalmist is encouraging us to be demonstrative in worship; to shout, sing, extol, bow, kneel. Other Psalms speak of lifted hands and clanging cymbals. In other words, ruckus.

Application:
My area of greatest ministry is in musical worship. Yet how often am I not very demonstrative in my worship of God. The Psalm says we should be shouting and singing. Too often I am too reserved, too dignified. I worry too much about the perception of those around me.

Prayer:
Father, help me to become less dignified in my worship of You. Help me to sing, shout, lift my hands, and otherwise lose myself in worship of You. Help me also to encourage Your people to do the same anytime I lead them in singing.
