I Will Sing Praises

Psalm 9:2 (NKJV)

I will be glad and rejoice in You; I will sing praise to Your name, O Most High

Don’t you love to praise the Lord?!  This past Sunday I heard a wonderful message that served as a much needed reminder of the importance of praise and worship. A great deal was shared, but one thing that stood out to me was this:

Praise is our response to God’s character.  Worship is your conduct in response to God’s presence.

As a praise and worship leader at my church I would often struggle with thoughts of stage fright, or fear of judgment, if I didn’t hit the right note or sing in the perfect key.  I realized that for too long my focus was on pleasing man, rather than praising the God of My Salvation and the Savior of My Soul!!  Today when I praise, my desire is to go forth in excellence in order to honor God first and foremost.  I also hope to be a part of leading the people into their time of worship, and when I begin to feel unsure of myself I re-direct my focus to making a joyful noise unto the Lord!  He always deserves our very best, and my prayer is that we’ll all sing to Him today!!

Psalm 100 (KJV) 

Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all ye lands.2 Serve the Lord with gladness: come before his presence with singing.3 Know ye that the Lord he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.4 Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.5 For the Lord is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations.

  4. Worship songs helps me start my day. As an E.R. nurse , things got get crazy and stressful. Then I had to be away from home with my family by themselves. Hearing words of faith reminds me that everything will be alright and that God is always there for me and my family.
