Psalm 95: Every day we are to step aside from our work and spend time with God. On the first day of the week, we join others in worship in a place set aside just for that. The psalmist encourages that time by repeating “let us,” thus asking all of us to join together by singing, shouting out praises, entering his presence with thanksgiving. The world stops and asks why we do this. The psalmist replies that the Lord is a great God, a great king who is superior to all gods.
Romans 1:20 reminds us that we can see God’s invisible attributes in his creation. The psalmist notes that the depths of the earth are in his hand, the mountain peaks belong to him, the sea is his—for he has made it. It isn’t just the physical evidence of He being the Creator, but He reveals that He is deeper and higher than us. Each creation is a picture of who He is. Therefore, come “let us” bow down and worship. “Let us” kneel before the Lord, our Creator.
The psalmist notes the warning if we fail to take the time to honor Him as the Israelites of old did. He made a vow in his anger that they will never enter the resting place I had set aside for them. May we heed that until heaven and earth are dissolved, this could happen to us.
May your day of worship be pleasing in His sight.
