DAILY READING


 

REFLECTION


Who Am I?

by Judy Webb


Who Am I?

Does anyone else feel intimidated when attempting to praise and worship God daily? I know he is worthy of our praise minute by minute even, no question. But why do I squirm when attempting to praise God with enthusiasm and vigor? Is there a right way or wrong way.


“Praise the LORD. Praise the LORD, you, his servants; praise the name of the LORD. Let the name of the LORD be praised, both now and forevermore. From the rising of the sun to the place where it sets, the name of the LORD is to be praised.” (Psalm 113:1-3 ESV)


We can agree that God is worthy, but are we worthy? Is our thanksgiving and worship worthy of our God? This command to “Praise the LORD,” (Psalm 113:1,9) can be daunting. How does one praise the Almighty? Is it enough to simply read from scriptures like Psalm 113? Or do I need to sing a praise and worship song, like on Sunday morning in church? Or maybe if I pray the scriptures it makes more of an impression.


“For as he thinks in his heart, so he is.” (Proverbs 23:7)


I am humbled as I set my heart on praising Him for all he has done for me. I must ask myself, “Who Am I?” How can my modest words reach the ears of Our Lord and Savior and remain worthy? Will my humble phrases please my God? I realize God knows my heart and my intentions. So, If they are honest and pure, they will please Him.


Tell someone that God is good, then back it up by sharing your experience of His goodness. Tell your story and let it Praise God.


PRAYER

Dear Jesus,

May these words of my mouth and this meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer. (Psalm 19:14) As I praise you in the morning and the evening, hear my humble words and receive them from the bottom of my heart. Amen.
