Daily Bible Podcast Day 156 – Proverbs 30-31, Psalm 33, Ephesians 1

April 5, 2013 in Podcasts by Nathan


“Sing joyfully to the Lord, you righteous;
it is fitting for the upright to praise him.
Praise the Lord with the harp;
make music to him on the ten-stringed lyre.
Sing to him a new song;
play skillfully, and shout for joy.” ~Psalm 33:1-3

The Psalmist is telling us here and elsewhere to be demonstrative in worship. When we sing to God, we are sing as if we really mean what we are saying about his power, grace, mercy, provision, and love. If we play an instrument, we are to play it well, which means we should put the time into learning and practicing.

Too often in worship I am reluctant to lift my hands or sing loudly. I am not as demonstrative when I am in the congregation. I worry about what those around me might think. I’m also a worship leader and I don’t always put in as much time as I should to get better at singing and playing the guitar.

Father, I am grateful for Your love, mercy, provision, and blessing in my life. Help me to make my worship an overflowing of the love and gratitude that I feel in my heart. As a leader, help me to encourage others to do the same. I will clap my hands, sing new songs, and shout to You.
