Renew Our Passion | Psalm 81:1-10
Today's Passage: Psalm 81:1-10
Key Verses: Psalm 81:1-2
For the director of music. According to gittith. Of Asaph.
Sing for joy to God our strength; shout aloud to the God of Jacob! Begin the music, strike the timbrel, play the melodious harp and lyre.
Strike up the band! Beat out a rhythm with the percussion. Go crazy on the stringed instruments. Sound the horn! Regardless of how you are feeling, it's time to celebrate! Sing from the bottom of your heart and the top of your lungs. Shout loud to the God who is our strength.
Today's focus is not on our problems but on the person of God. He is the one who has delivered us from the slavery of sin. He removed the heavy burden from our shoulders. We called out to him and he rescued us. He is the only God to be honored and worshiped. God will fill our hearts with good things.
So let the party begin. Start the celebration right now, right where you are. Shout out—"God is my strength!" Sing with joy your favorite praise song. Let God know how much you love him by your praise.
Father, help us hold nothing back. Help us get as excited about you as we do our favorite sports team. Help us to raise our voices in praise to the God who raised us up from death and gave us eternal life. Renew our passion to praise. In Jesus' name. Amen.
