Psalm 100 New Living Translation (NLT)
What is your favorite hobby? We all have varied interests and doing those things that bring us joy can be very diverse. God placed healthy desires in you; things to develop that would bring you joy, because He loves you. He wants an abundant life for you. Personally, I like to bake goodies. When I was a very young girl, my grandmother taught me how to bake. She made the most amazing baked goods; spent hours in the kitchen every day. Baking was one of the ways she shared the love of God with others. She put such “heart” into everything she made and whether she realized it or not she helped me see the value of doing such things that I also enjoy as an act of worship. Worship is about Oneness with God; bowing down to thank God for our lives and the blessing of his design. When you look at your life, do you understand every aspect of you is unique and lovingly crafted, so you will acknowledge and thank your Creator as you enjoy your life?
Psalm 100 A psalm of thanksgiving.
Shout with joy to the Lord, all the earth!
Worship the Lord with gladness.
Come before him, singing with joy.
Acknowledge that the Lord is God!
He made us, and we are his.
We are his people, the sheep of his pasture.
Enter his gates with thanksgiving;
go into his courts with praise.
Give thanks to him and praise his name.
For the Lord is good.
His unfailing love continues forever,
and his faithfulness continues to each generation.
Prayer: Lord, thank you for making me who I am. May my life and my attitude of gratitude turn to exalt you and bring you honor and glory. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
