Heartlight Daily Verse 8/31


August 31

Come, let us bow down in worship, let us kneel before the Lord our Maker; for he is our God and we are the people of his pasture, the flock under his care.
 
Thoughts on today's verse
 
Worship is more than our heart, soul, and words offered to God. It's our posture. When we understand the grace he has given us to be called his children, what else can we do but bow down. We come to him as a conquering ruler in full submission, and he chooses to treat us tenderly, like a loving shepherd.
 
Prayer:
 
Pastor of my soul, I come to you seeking your protection and rest as one of your sheep, often harried and driven by life's pressures and temptations. But I come to you, not demanding, but submitting myself to be used for your glory -- not just today, but for the rest of my life. In Jesus I pray. Amen.
