Monday morning and God has led me to Psalm 47. God is being worshipped in this Psalm for who He is. I guess what I have to ask myself is this: how often do I just worship God for who He is - not just for what He's done for me and will do for me; not just to have Someone on my side when I need Him. If I take 'me' out of the picture, can I just worship God for who He is?
It's certainly not something that comes readily to me and I feel somewhat selfish and ashamed. I gave my heart to God when I was a child and have now been walking with Him for almost 44 years. That's a long time. But it's not just been since I said yes to Him. He's been there all along! He formed me in my mother's womb and kept me safe. My Mom smoked, drank alcohol, drank coffee and really never changed her habits at all for her pregnancy. Please understand, I don't blame her. It was the times. However, God's hand was on me because He has purpose for my life.
That fact alone causes me to fall on my face before my King and my Creator. God, open my eyes to the wonder of You and to love You and bless You just for who You are and not just what You can do for me.
For all who read this, please join me in this prayer. We serve an amazing God - let's just worship Him because He's amazing!
