“Come, let us bow down in worship, let us kneel before the Lord our Maker; for he is our God and we are the people of his pasture, the flock under his care.” (Psalm 95:6-7)
Worship of our great God should end up leading to action—places where we change or “bend” what we do to bring Him glory and honor. The Hebrew word for “worship” in Psalm 95:6 basically means “to bend.”
When we worship God, we bend our lives to what He wants and who He is. As we seek Him first and savor Him, His greatness bends everything else that isn’t as great in our lives. This is what the Apostle Paul means when he said:
“Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God—this is your spiritual act of worship. Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind” (Romans 12:1-2).
Whether you long to be more obedient to God with your finances, seek healthier relationships in your family, or want to be a better example at work, everything you do is worship and should bend to the greatness and goodness of God.
Bend today to God’s will and you’ll see His greatness.
