Psalm 66: David’s Worship

Psalm 66 is a powerful prayer written by David proclaiming the awesomeness of God and our responsibility, as His people, to praise Him! This whole passage is great, but recently verses 13-15 have been speaking to me:

     “I will come to your temple with burnt offerings and fulfill my vows to you— vows my lips promised and my mouth spoke when I was in trouble. I will sacrifice fat animals to you and an offering of rams; I will offer bulls and goats.”

Here, David isn’t saying he will sacrifice the skinny animals, the sickest goats, or the weakest bulls. David is giving the strongest, the fattest,  his most valuable and unblemished animals. David, with a generous heart, gave to God the best he had to offer as his spiritual act of worship. Applying this passage to Sunday morning is simple: Are you as excited to praise God on Sundays as David is here in Psalm 66? Do you give God your strongest, your best, sacrifice or effort during worship or do you give Him your leftovers? Make Psalm 66 your prayer for the next couple months and let it speak to your heart – for God deserves our best. It’s the least we can do since He gave us His.
