Again I want to type a big thanks to those that posted a comment on Psalm 71 last week. Loved, loved reading your comments. This week I am inviting all of you (yes, that means you) to play along...read the assigned psalm, meditate on it, and share via a comment how God is speaking to you through the psalm.
The psalm of the week is Psalm 47.
Yesterday in my Life Group I asked my ladies to define worship. I am reading Desiring God by John Piper and on page 84 he wrote, "...worship is a way of gladly reflecting back to God the radiance of His worth." And on page 92 this, "Worship is authentic when affections for God arise in the heart as an end in themselves." Not because we are trying to get anything or find entertainment from it or accomplish anything other than praising the One that is worthy to be praised.
What does Psalm 47 say about worship and/or praise? As a result of reading the psalm, what are you challenged to do, if anything?
"Clap your hands, all you peoples; shout to God with a jubilant cry." (verse 1, HCSB)
