Oh come, let us sing to the LORD! Let us shout joyfully to the Rock of our salvation. Let us come before His presence with thanksgiving; Let us shout joyfully to Him with psalms. For the LORD is the great God, and the great King above all gods.” Psalm 95:1-3
I was sitting outside in my front yard very early this morning. I was working on a Bible study and enjoying some quiet time with God. I could hear many sounds…sounds of the birds waking up and getting breakfast from the feeders, the hummingbirds fighting over territories with the clashing of their beaks against each other, and the bees buzzing among the flowers. I even had a Momma Monarch butterfly come through to deposit some eggs on my milkweed plants…such a menagerie of God’s creation. I could not help but give our Creator God, the praise He deserves!
Out here in my garden you would not know I am less than 100 feet from a busy road. It is my oasis, my sanctuary.
I am thankful, content to just be…to be still and sit in the Presence of Majesty. His Majesty…as He is all around me, all around us. His fingerprints are everywhere. Remember that song? It is true.
When I am giving Him praise and shouting joyfully to His Name…the darkness runs. The forces of darkness have no place here.
We are called to worship Him. We cannot allow anyone or anything to silence us. Especially in these times of uncertainty & chaos. It is a time to praise The LORD, to lift the Name of YAHWEH ELOHIM!
