Oh come, let us sing to the Lord; let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation! Let us come into his presence with thanksgiving; let us make a joyful noise to him with songs of praise! For the Lord is a great God,
and a great King above all gods. In his hand are the depths of the earth; the heights of the mountains are his also. The sea is his, for he made it, and his hands formed the dry land. Oh come, let us worship and bow down; let us kneel before the Lord, our Maker! For he is our God, and we are the people of his pasture, and the sheep of his hand. Psalm 95:1-7
In one Psalm, we see two very different types of worship described. The first few verses describe this rather vocal and very expressive act of worship. Singing and song are mentioned twice as well as the making of a joyful noise. The posture in our modern culture would probably look like the celebratory fan who just witnessed his team score the winning touchdown. This was not your average church service; it was a highly celebratory and outward expression of Thanksgiving. The second type of worship is much more reverent and tempered. In this depiction, the psalmist illustrates the humble posture of bowing down.
Our worship position is unique to every moment. There are times a celebration is in order, and there are times a quiet and humble posture is required. One thing you’ll notice that is not written is the absence of worship. Every day affords the man of God different ways to posture himself before the Creator and carefully respond with a heart of worship. Don’t miss an opportunity.
