This is a psalm that has much to do with worship and our attitude toward coming into His Presence. We learn to make a joyful noise. When reality sets in, you learn to sing to the Lord, and this is a joyful noise. I love to hear a choir that sings with the anointing of the Holy Spirit. They get with the program, in that they sing with joy, happiness, and much volume, and then they decrease to the quiet time.
In His Presence is joy, but when you come to the quiet, there is a hush that fills your soul. It is time to stop, listen, and worship the Lord. At this point you can kneel, or sit in silence. God wants to talk. Your Bible should be open and handy. The Lord talks when you are willing to shut your mouth and sit in the silence. You have been joyful. Now rest in His love, and be still for a little while. In the stillness you find Him also. Often at this point I open my Bible and the words that I read are fitted for me that day. I have sung to Him, and He talks through the Word of God, or he may say something to me.
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom. Proverbs says this. I believe it is not being afraid to approach him. Remember how the people wanted Moses to go up on the mountain to speak with God, because he wasn’t afraid to talk with him.
We have access to the throne now, because of the sacrifice Jesus made on the cross. He died for all of us. His blood covers us, and God sees us as His children when we receive what Jesus did for us on the cross. He rose again, and sits in Heaven making intercession for us all.
We come boldly, with adoration, and sing to Him. We worship Him. Then we make our requests. Worship should be in our hearts daily. It is not a religious experience. It is committing our lives to God in Jesus name. Head to toe surrender to Jesus Christ, and being full of the Holy Spirit helps us walk in much victory.
