Day Four: Worship is a Choice

Psalm 13:3-6 (NIV)
3 Look on me and answer, LORD my God.
    Give light to my eyes, or I will sleep in death,
4 and my enemy will say, “I have overcome him,”
    and my foes will rejoice when I fall.
5 But I trust in your unfailing love;
    my heart rejoices in your salvation.
6 I will sing the LORD’s praise,
    for he has been good to me.

“To worship God is to tell Him that we believe Him for who He says He is. Every day we’re faced with the choice either to acknowledge and proclaim Him as the great and merciful God He declares himself to be or to deny Him… Yes, every act of worship is a choice—a decision to believe and respond to God for who He says He is—no matter how pressing our circumstances. And the greater the pain we’re experiencing, the greater a choice it may be. Sometimes we will walk blindly, unable to understand why we are going through a certain situation—our only comfort being the knowledge that God himself is not walking blindly, but instead is wisely, kindly, and firmly in control” (Matt and Beth Redman, Finding God in the Hard Times).

Prayer: Lord, in every circumstance, I trust in your unfailing love! My heart rejoices in your salvation! I will sing to you for you have been good to me! My heart will choose to say, Lord, blessed be your name! In Jesus’ name, amen.
