July 9—Worship

The word for today is worship.

“He said to his servants, ‘Stay here with the donkey while I and the boy go over there. We will worship and then we will come back to you’” (Gen. 22:5).

“Do not worship any other god, for the Lord, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God” (Exod. 34:14).

“At this, Job got up and tore his robe and shaved his head. Then he fell to the ground in worship and said: ‘Naked I came from my mother’s womb, and naked I will depart. The Lord gave and the Lord has taken away; may the name of the Lord be praised.’ In all this, Job did not sin by charging God with wrongdoing” (Job 1:20-22).

“But the Lord, who brought you up out of Egypt with mighty power and outstretched arm, is the one you must worship. To him you shall bow down and to him offer sacrifices” (2 Kings 17:36).

“Ascribe to the Lord the glory due his name; worship the Lord in the splendor of his holiness” (Ps. 29:2).

“All the earth bows down to you; they sing praise to you, they sing praise to your name. Selah” (Ps. 66:4).

“Come, let us bow down in worship, let us kneel before the Lord our Maker; for he is our God and we are the people of his pasture, the flock under his care. Today, if you hear his voice”

(Ps. 95:6-7).

“Exalt the Lord our God and worship at his footstool; he is holy” (Ps. 99:5).

“Where is He who has been born King of the Jews? For we saw His star in the east, and have come to worship Him” (Matt. 2:2).

Prayer: Lord, I find myself singing with Charles Wesley: “O for a thousand tongues to sing my great Redeemer’s praise, the glories of my God and King, the triumphs of His grace.”
