A heart of praise

May 25

Daily Bible Reading: 1 Chronicles 14 – 16

Verse of the Day: 1 Chronicles 16:24 – “ Declare his glory among the nations, His marvellous works among all the peoples.”

We are to worship the Father in spirit and in truth (John 4:24). David in this section provides us with a wonderful song of thanksgiving to God. Chapter 16:8 – 36 is a compilation of a number of David’s Psalms (96; 105; 106) in worship and adoration of God. 

I may not understand it, but the Father is glorified and pleased when we worship Him – either alone or in the company of others. He longs to inhabit our hearts and houses of worship. We need to be careful that we do not let worship become a lost art, a missing jewel in our hearts and churches. Beware against the bustle and hurry of today – it steals the pleasure of our time with the Father.

Prayer: Glorious and Gracious Father, I come before you with a heart of praise – inhabit my life with Your shining Presence. Give me the joy that only You are capable of. Amen
