I had the great privilege of being on a road trip with some saints. As the sun set and night settled in, rather than snoozing off after an exhausting day, those saints saw it fit to sing songs to God. There were songs of adoration, songs of praise, songs proclaiming the wonders of God.
In His wisdom, God saw it fit to see the completion of the road trip rounded off with the reading of this Psalm. From the encouragement to praise God to the various reasons why it was incredible to hear how our time of worship in song chimed so well with the ethos of this Psalm seeing God in His splendour for all the marvellous things He has done, is doing and will do.
Particularly fitting to be reminded that God isn’t hung up on the prowess of the warrior, but He takes delight of those who live in awe of Him. It’s the right response to such a glorious God. Nothing else is worth placing effort and trust. Nothing and no one else. When we consider His nature and His works, understandably, we worship Him.
I love it when I get to have experiences like that and recognise how privileged I am to be around saints who effortlessly put in practice what the Word prescribes.
For His Name’s Sake
