30 DoW: Psalm 138

Psalm 138
1
I will praise you, O Lord, with all my heart;
before the "gods" I will sing your praise.

2
I will bow down toward your holy temple
and will praise your name
for your love and your faithfulness,
for you have exalted above all things
your name and your word.

3 When I called, you answered me;
you made me bold and stouthearted.

4 May all the kings of the earth praise you, O Lord,
when they hear the words of your mouth.

5 May they sing of the ways of the Lord,
for the glory of the Lord is great.

6 Though the Lord is on high, he looks upon the lowly,
but the proud he knows from afar.

7 Though I walk in the midst of trouble,
you preserve my life;
you stretch out your hand against the anger of my foes,
with your right hand you save me.

8 The Lord will fulfill his purpose for me;
your love, O Lord, endures forever—
do not abandon the works of your hands.

attribute & response:
Praiseworthy. He is the only God who is, the only Being worthy of praise. He alone can cause us to be bold and save us from trouble. He looks upon those of us who bow before Him, and He is the one who fulfills the purposes for which He created us. That is amazing. We desire so much autonomy, yet the only true and living God enables our every move. For this and so much more we sing to Him, we praise Him, we bow down before Him.

I love the fact that He loves music, and I love to sing to Him. I'm amazed and humbled by the fact that He even cares about my worship, cares to draw me to Him, wants to use me in any way for His service. My only logical response is to praise Him for it all.
