Happy are those who hear the joyful call to worship, for they will walk in the light of your presence, Lord. They rejoice all day long in your wonderful reputation. They exult in your righteousness. You are their glorious strength. Our power is based on your favor. Psalm 89:15-17 (NLT)
The intentional worshiper is a blessed individual, as is the sincere praiser. Today's meditation is letting us know the positive consequences of those who answer the call to worship. First, they walk in the light of God's presence. Second, they rejoice in His excellent name (Psalm 148:13). Third, they recognize God is their strength. Finally, our power is based on His favor. If these are the benefits enjoyed by those who heed the call to worship, I think this is where we need to be, don't you? Don't you want to spend the day walking in the light of God's presence? Since God gave us today, why not spend it rejoicing in Him? The Word of God says, "The eyes of the Lord are in every place. . ." (Prov. 15:3). He knows exactly where you are in any given moment or situation. I know well how it feels to not know all the answers; not knowing the outcome. But I choose to praise God anyway - I choose to answer the call to worship. I hope you will, too.
