Welcome to our praise and worship guide using the Psalms.
This guide is intended to help you spend a few minutes in worship on a daily basis. The worship activities for each day will take about 10 minutes, and are best done before your normal devotional time. May God richly bless you as you take time to reflect on who He is and what He’s doing in your life!
“We Serve Him Without Fear”
***This week we look at verses from Luke’s Gospel as we approach Christmas.
Read verses 67-71. Praise God today for your salvation. Thank the Lord that He came to redeem you. Allow you heart to be filled with awe again as you enter this Christmas season reflecting on the gift God gave us.
Read verses 69-71. What enemies has God specifically saved you from. Praise Him because of His redemption. Thank Him for saving you from the enemies of sin and death. What specific Christmas decorations or symbols remind you of how Jesus, as the Light of the world, dispelled the darkness of sin and death? As you decorate or look at your decorations this year, be reminded of this.
Read verses 72-74. Think about how pitiful you would be without Christ. Tell God where you would have been today without His mercy. Thank Him for the healing and restoration you have in Him. Bow in awe at how Jesus became poor and destitute in His birth and death so you could have mercy and be free of fear.
Read verses 74-78a. Praise God today because of His tremendous mercy toward us in our weakness and sin. Think about what it means to be forgiven, to have the weight of guilt lifted from your soul. Tell God this and thank Him.
Read verses 78b-79. Praise God because of His holiness and righteousness. Think of the darkness and cold of a December night, and allow this to help you reflect on the depth of the darkness of sin in this world when Jesus came. Think of the incredible, eternal light that stepped into that darkness, and worship. Think of the bright, warm sun warming you in December, and let it remind youof the Light that shone in the darkness so long ago. Allow God’s peace to fillyour heart like the warm sun after a cold winter night.
