Verse
 
1 Ascribe to the Lord, you heavenly beings, ascribe to the Lord glory and strength. 2 Ascribe to the Lord the glory due his name; worship the Lord in the splendor of his holiness. - Psalm 29:1-2
 
Meditation
 
So many choices. Whether choosing a phone, a car, clothes or cheddar cheese, there are so many choices. I invite you to join David and worship the Lord. While worshiping, ascribe to Him glory and strength and do it in the splendor of His holiness. I invite you to explore worship’s depth of meaning. Many of you may have worshiped this morning in the quiet of your home or in a prayer group or with a large gathering. There may have been music and singing and prayer and teaching or just silence and God. Yes, there are choices even when it comes to worship. Unfortunately, many people are opting out of worship on any level. It is difficult to read very far in scripture without there being mention of worship. When we try to fuel our soul without worship our tank becomes empty. In our text David uses the word ascribe repeatedly which implies some form of action being taken. Worship is defined as a noun but done as a verb. Choose to worship. Often. Scripture does not give us the choice of not worshiping. 
 
Prayer
 
Heavenly Father, we bow before you and give reverence to your holy name. We honor and glorify your name in the splendor of your holiness. Accept our worship through prayer and lead us to greater places and times of worship. Plant in each of us the desire to worship so we don’t worship only because we think we are obligated to. We worship to honor your name. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.
