True Worship [Devotional]
Devotions ChopChop ^ | November 27, 2008 | Dave Miller (tenger)

Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name. For the Lord is good and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations. Psalm 100:4-5

Throughout the Psalms is a general theme of “Give thanks to God; his love endures forever." I suspect a phrase similar to that is in the Old Testament 30 times or more. In fact, each verse in Psalm 136 ends in “His love endures forever.” Obviously it’s a phrase that God wants us to be familiar with.

You see, we forget easily. We forget that the world doesn’t revolve around us. We forget that we are expendable and can be replaced. We forget that we are not permanent on this earth. And we also forget that God’s love endures forever.

The writers of Psalms wanted to make it crystal clear that we should be giving thanks to the One who created and redeemed us. Then they remind us that The Lord is good. It’s a fairly simple recipe in how we should treat God.

Psa 150:3 Praise him with the sound of the trumpet: praise him with the psaltery and harp.
Psa 150:4 Praise him with the timbrel and dance: praise him with stringed instruments and organs.
Psa 150:5 Praise him upon the loud cymbals: praise him upon the high sounding cymbals.

Isa 38:20 The LORD was ready to save me: therefore we will sing my songs to the stringed instruments all the days of our life in the house of the LORD.

Hab 3:19 The LORD God is my strength, and he will make my feet like hinds' feet, and he will make me to walk upon mine high places. To the chief singer on my stringed instruments.

These are just a few of the things God mentions on how he likes to be worshiped...Music...God loves music...God wants us to sing and play musical instruments in worship of Him...

Doesn't matter what it is...If you can play it, God will love it...
