Psalm 22:22 “I will declare your name to my brothers; in the congregation I will praise you.”
[You, Heavenly Father, are the prayer-answering, soul-saving, wisdom-giving, infinitely powerful, all-good God, worthy of praise. You are Yahweh, Elohim and Adonai, the God of perfect character, marvelous wisdom, rich love, unending righteousness and immeasurable power. Yes, before all I will declare your name and praise you!]
Psalm 22:23 “You who fear the LORD, praise him!”
[To fear the Lord is to stand in awe of His power and greatness, His hatred of sin and love of righteousness; it is to care deeply what He thinks about things, and therefore obey Him wholeheartedly and fully.]
“All you descendants of Jacob, honor him! Revere him, all you descendants of Israel!”
[To honor and revere you with enthusiasm and joy, Lord God, are the responses of those who spend time in worship and in your Word. They can see your beautiful and majestic Character, the eternal, Triune Ruler and Perfect One.
Help me to consistently consider what you invite us to, to join you by living in the fear of God, honoring you in all I do.
