Daily Devotion for June 10th, 2020
1 “Sing a new song to the LORD! Let the whole earth sing to the LORD!”
* You are the only you GOD created....what unique, new song can you sing to praise HIM? Don't worry...“DAD” knows it's a song just for HIM...HE is listening! No grades! Just “belt” it out (if you, on the other hand, are a member of our AWESOME worship team, I hope and pray you will teach your new song to us so we can sing it with you!)!
2 “Sing to the LORD; bless HIS name. Each day proclaim the good news that HE saves.”
* There's that “singing” request again! It doesn't matter if you sound like a toad! It's music to HIS ears! Your worship songs bless the GOD of the universe! How awesome is that?
* Who can you tell the “Good News” to today? JESUS SAVES!!! Share HIS “Good News” today!!!
3 “Publish HIS glorious deeds among the nations. Tell everyone about the amazing things HE does.”
* We should be keeping a record of the amazing things GOD has done, both in the HIS Word and in our lives. Then, when the LORD asks us to “review” the ways HE has miraculously saved and carried others/us in the past, our faith will be renewed, and we will be eager to tell others...This will serve to strengthen our faith AND their faith! Review your GOD “story” today and “share it!”
4 “GREAT is the LORD! HE is most worthy of praise! HE is to be revered above all the gods.”
* Are you praising our GREAT GOD as you should? Are you putting HIM first, above all else?
5 “The gods of other nations are merely idols, but the LORD made the heavens!”
* Our LORD made the heavens, people! How awesome is our GOD!!!?????
6 “Honor and majesty surround HIM; strength and beauty are in HIS sanctuary.”
* Honor, majesty, strength, and beauty are all HIS...We can't truly grasp that until we go “home!”
7 “O nations of the world, recognize the LORD; recognize that the LORD is glorious and strong.”
* What are you doing, right now, to help others “recognize” the LORD? What are you doing to “recognize” the LORD's glory and strength?
8 “Give the LORD the glory HE deserves! Bring your offering and come to worship HIM.”
* Are you remembering that HE made you, HE designed you, and HE gifted you...so all the glory has to go to HIM for anything “good” that comes from you?
* Are you bringing an offering of your tithe and your time to the LORD? After all, both your money and your time are HIS, not yours...they are gifts HE has given you!
* Are you coming to church to worship with your “family?” Is worshiping HIM at church your priority?
9 “Worship the LORD in all HIS holy splendor. Let all the earth tremble before HIM.”
* Are you striving to know GOD better so you can worship HIM in all HIS splendor? The more HE reveals to us about HIMSELF, the more prone we are to “tremble” at HIS feet!
10 “Tell ALL the nations that the LORD is King. The world is firmly established and CANNOT be shaken. HE will judge all peoples fairly.”
* We might not be called to physically “go,” but we are still called to “tell” ALL the nations about the LORD!!!! How are you doing that? Who can you be supporting financially to do this?
* THIS world IS firmly established by GOD...it CANNOT be shaken (unless HE so desires!).
* GOD will judge all people fairly. You and I can't, but HE can and HE will. Praise GOD!!!!!!
11-12 “Let the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice! Let the sea and everything in it shout HIS praise! Let the fields and their crops burst forth with joy! Let the trees of the forest rustle with praise before the LORD!”
* Everything GOD designed gives HIM joyful praise:...The heavens, the birds singing and soaring, the earth, the sea and HIS amazing creatures swimming around in there, the crops bursting, the sun rising, the raindrops glistening, the horses prancing, the puppies licking, the trees dancing in the wind...they all manifest GOD's glory and thus continually praise HIS name! Have you stopped to note that? Have you stopped to marvel as HIS creations and praise HIM? Have you stopped to consider that you too were created to manifest HIS glory? You too were created to praise HIS name???!!!
13 “FOR THE LORD IS COMING!!!!! HE is coming to judge the earth. HE will judge the world with righteousness and all the nations with HIS truth.”
* The final chapter of this Earth is approaching! HIS perfect Judgment is near! Are you ready?
