Come, Let Us Rejoice!

“Come and see what God has done, his awesome deeds for mankind! He turned the sea into dry land, they passed through the waters on foot— come, let us rejoice in him. He rules forever by his power, his eyes watch the nations— let not the rebellious rise up against him.” – Psalm 66:5-7
When was the last time you stopped to worship God — to give praise for what God has done? I don’t know about you, but my daily schedule can sometimes get away from me. I wake up with the best intentions, but at the end of the day I often find that I still have a lot of intentions. Unfortunately, my relationship with God is one of the areas that suffers most from a crowded schedule.
What if we prioritized our time with God? What if we prioritized our worship? As you read through the psalms, there are many psalms written to celebrate all God has done. Our God is awesome and powerful — our God has rescued us from sin and gives us new life! That is worthy of our worship, not our leftovers.
This Sunday, we are beginning a new series in our worship services called This We Believe. In this series, we will be unpacking one of our most historical statements of faith, The Apostles’ Creed, as we explore the essentials of our faith. The first week of this series will focus on our belief in God as the creator of all the heavens and the earth. But the creation is not a history lesson, rather a testimony to the creation and re-creation that God continues to do each day in our lives. So let’s create time in our daily schedule to rejoice in God!
Have a great weekend, and I look forward to being with you in worship this Sunday at 8:45 and 11:00!
Praising God Together,
P.S. Throughout the month of September, we will be reading through Psalms together. You are invited to join us in this reading. Each week, my note to you in The WeeklySoundings will be from one of the chapters we are reading that day. You can click here to download the Psalms Reading Plan.
