Thoughts on Today's Verse...

"Stand up and shout it if you love my Jesus..." That's a song our children love to sing! But what happens to that youthful exuberance and joy at worshiping the Lord as we age? Scripture shows that God doesn't want us to lose that worshipful passion. Read through the Bible and highlight all the physical acts used to reverence and praise our awesome and eternal God. It's amazing! In a world that regularly uses God's name in vain, isn't it time we stood up and praised God — praise not only in church (our private worship) and our daily devotionals (our personal worship) but also in our lives every day (our public worship)?!

My Prayer...

Heavenly Father, I find it incomprehensible that an eternal and mighty God would choose to listen to my prayers. Yet I know you do hear them, and you respond to them. Thank you! Please be praised in my worship, whether I offer it in private with other Christians at church, in my daily personal worship, or with my public worship, as I live as an example before my coworkers. You alone are God and worthy of all praise, so please be praised in my life. In the name of Jesus, I pray. Amen.
