Are You a True Worshipper? (Through the Psalms)
Ascribe to the LORD, O heavenly beings,
ascribe to the LORD glory and strength.
Ascribe to the LORD the glory due his name;
worship the LORD in the splendor of holiness ^Psalm 29:1-2 (Click to read entire Psalm)
Worship happens when revelation happens. People may be able to sing songs articulately written and beautifully transposed, but true worship cannot happen until the human heart has a revelation of God.
When we come into contact with the reality of Christ and the beauty of His majesty, our hearts will automatically respond in worship. Worship is always a response. People cannot forcefully worship. People can forcefully sing and clap their hands, but that is not the same as worship. True authentic worship happens when God’s people come into contact with the reality of God.
This is why true worshippers are always gazing their eyes and hearts upon the Lord. They are seekers and finders of God’s divine presence in their lives. True worshippers choose to yield their hearts to the Lord.
David, is having a moment of worship here. He is reminded of God’s splendor and holiness and as a response, worships. David is having a revelation of how beautiful and amazing God is. Thus, he cannot help but want to respond in giving himself to God in praise and worship.
David remembers all that God had done for the Israelites and for himself and says, Ascribe…ascribe…ascribe. Ascribe to the LORD, means to give to the LORD what he is worthy of. When someone has a true revelation of God, they cannot help but want to give back to God.
