Psalm 95:1-3

“O Come, let us sing for joy to the Lord; Let us shout joyfully to the rock of our salvation. Let us come into his presence with thanksgiving; let us make a joyful noise to him with songs of praise! For the Lord is a great God and a great King above all gods.”

Psalm 100:4-5

“Enter his gates with thanksgiving, and his courts with praise! Give thanks to him; bless his name! For the Lord is good; his steadfast love endures forever, and his faithfulness to all generations.”

Psalm 118:29

“Give thanks to the Lord for he is good, his love endures forever.”

Psalm 9:1

“I will give thanks to you, LORD, with all my heart; I will tell of all your wonderful deeds.”

Psalm 7:17

“I will give to the Lord the thanks due to his righteousness, and I will sing praise to the name of the Lord, the Most High.”

Powerful Scriptures to Help You Worship God Psalm 103:1-4, Let all that I am praise the Lord; with my whole heart, I will praise His holy name. Let all that I am praise the Lord; may I never forget the good things He does for me. He forgives all my sins and heals all my diseases. He redeems me from death and crowns me with love and tender mercies.

It is believed David wrote Psalm 103 later in life because it is written with humble awareness of God’s amazing grace and tender mercy.

No sin too great. No sinner too flawed. God redeems broken people and that alone is reason to worship Him.

Isaiah 25:1

I honour you and praise You because You have done amazing things. You have always done what you said you would do; You have done what you planned long ago.

God keeps His promises.

We can count on it in a world where we can’t count on much. God’s promises are faithful and true. Isaiah said it . . . God always does what He says He will do.

What promise are you holding close today? You can count on God. He keeps His promises.

Psalm 63:3–4, 7–8

Because Your love is better than life, I will praise You. I will praise You as long as I live. I will lift up my hands in prayer to Your name.

Because you are my helper, I sing for joy in the shadow of your wings. I cling to You; Your strong right hand holds me securely.

Scholars believe Psalm 63 was written while David was in the wilderness running from his son, Absalom, and those who were attempting to dethrone him.

Can you imagine? Stopping and writing a song of praise while you’re running for your life from your own child.

No matter what is going on in your life . . . God is there. He loves you. He will never leave you. Cling to Him, His mighty strong right hand is holding you securely.

Ephesians 3:20–21

Now to Him who by the power at work within us is able to accomplish abundantly far more than all we can ask or imagine, to Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.

Paul wrote this from a Roman prison. Why was he imprisoned? For preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

When you are discouraged or afraid because of the way Christians are being persecuted around the world remember, God is on the throne. He is at work and able to accomplish far more than we could ever ask or imagine.

Exodus 15:1-3

“I will sing to the Lord, for He has triumphed gloriously; He has hurled both horse and rider into the sea. The Lord is my strength and my song; He has given me victory. This is my God, and I will praise Him—my father’s God, and I will exalt Him! The Lord is a warrior; Yahweh is His name!

Imagine yourself trapped next to a sea and you see your enemy coming for you when the waters part. You cross safely to the other side and then those chasing you are destroyed as the waters return to normal.

Exodus 15 is Moses’ “Song of Deliverance.”

Are you going through a storm? Do you feel like your enemies are gaining on you? Are fear and anxiety making it hard to worship?

God is with you. He is the God of miracles. Stop and worship Him. He is able.

Hallelujah Amen
