O Come Let Us Adore Him!
“Bless the LORD, O my soul, And all that is within me, bless His holy name.” – Psalms 103:1 NASB
When’s the last time you expressed your love and adoration to God? I mean, really let Him know how much you love and appreciate Him? These two familiar and incredible Psalms of praise to God ought to remind us just how infrequently we verbally let God know how much He means to us. In both Psalms, David speaks to his soul. He reminds himself to praise God because of who He is, for all that He has done, and all the myriad ways He shows us His love, mercy, and grace each and every day. Because God is out of sight and out of mind for most of us as human being – in other words, we can’t see Him – we have to make an effort to think about Him and look for His activities and actions in and around our lives. For David, it was to put it in song. For you and me, it might be a favorite CD with some songs of praise to God that we listen to regularly and that remind us of His goodness and grace. It might be that we start each day by reading these two Psalms
Let’s fact it, most of us take God for granted. We rarely think about the fact that each breath we take is a gift from Him. Unless we happen to be standing at the brink of the Grand Canyon looking out over its majestic landscape, we probably don’t get blown away by God’s creative handiwork too much as we drive to work or mow the yard. But if we could train ourselves to think “Godly” thoughts, to look for Him each and every day in the world that surrounds us, we would probably be more grateful and a lot less grumpy!
So come let us adore Him. Sing His praises. Shout about His incredible mercies. Remind one another of His limitless love. We have a lot to adore, and there’s more to come.
Father, give me eyes to see You, lips to praise you, ears to hear you, hands to serve you, feet to follow you, and a lifetime that is filled with adoration for who You are and all that You have done. Amen
