Come, let us worship and bow down,
Let us kneel before the Lord our Maker.
For He is our God,
And we are the people of His pasture and the sheep of His hand.
Today, if you would hear His voice.
Do not harden your hearts…
But do we?
And if so, how often do we worship and bow down to Him who is Lord of all?
Every moment of every day as delights His heart?
Or are we too busy in our rush rush world to stop and still our hearts so that the words He murmurs catch our attention?
Perhaps we are just too set on having our own way, thinking that we know what is best for the outcomes we desire.
But He is Lord!
He is our Maker.
From the breath that escaped His lips sending forth spoken words, He made it all and knows all. And He created us to love and be loved.
And everything can be an act of worship and love if our hearts will kneel at His feet in humble adoration and gratitude.
For we are only sheep, dusty and dirty and always losing our way. But the voice of our Great Shepherd beckons us to come back to Him.
Yet we often run the other way, allowing our hearts to grow cold and hard like tombstones in the middle of winter. And when we do, something inside us dies. And we feel alone and may think He has abandoned us.
But He hasn’t.
In our hectic pace from nine to five and beyond until the wee hours we can push Him to last place on our list of things to do.
As if He were just another obligation to cross off. Heavens no!
He bore our shame and our sins at the cross, taking them away from us, because He loved us.
And He loves us still, and will until forever times ten thousand to eternity.
He is Lord.
Worthy of our worship, not just once a week, but in every living, breathing moment of every day that He gifts us.
An endless flowing of ceaseless praise.
Oh come let us adore Him…
