12/2 Psalm 95:1-7a
（Memorization Scripture: vv. 6-7a）
1 Oh come, let us sing to the Lord!
Let us shout joyfully to the Rock of our salvation.
2 Let us come before His presence with thanksgiving;
Let us shout joyfully to Him with psalms.
3 For the Lord is the great God,
And the great King above all gods.
4 In His hand are the deep places of the earth;
The heights of the hills are His also.
5 The sea is His, for He made it;
And His hands formed the dry land.
6 Oh come, let us worship and bow down;
Let us kneel before the Lord our Maker.
7 For He is our God,
And we are the people of His pasture,
And the sheep of His hand.
In this psalm, which again is a call to the people, we see an uncomplicated worship that professes God is the great God above all gods. We have countless good reasons to come before Him with joyful shouts, to sing of Him, to give thanks to Him, and to praise Him. Sadly, we often only focus on the things that God has done for us. What’s even more pitiful is that we only thank Him for accomplishing the particular things we asked for. We are sorely lacking in real recognition of God’s being, His majesty, His awesomeness, His authority, His reign above all, and His all-surpassing greatness. It is not that we do not understand, but we simply have no appetite to know more of God; we only care that He has met our needs.
Come! Let us kneel before God! For a brief moment, forget our needs. Shout with joy, sing, praise and worship Him for who He is. The sea, dry land, hills, and deep places of the earth are not the only things that belong to God, but we, who have been bought by the blood of Jesus Christ, need to ever more loudly proclaim, “He is our God, and we are the people of His pasture, and the sheep of His hand.” (NY)
