2018 Easter Devotional — March 8

Psalm 95:6-11 (click to view Scripture below)

God wants our worship! He wants us to humble ourselves before Him in reverence and wait to hear His voice. “Come let us bow down in worship, let us kneel before the Lord our maker.” God is bigger than any situation, any problem, or any circumstance. For He is our God and we are the people of His pasture the flock under His care (Psalm 95:7). Just as the flock trusts the shepherd to take care of them, God wants us, as we worship, to trust Him, to listen to His voice, and to let Him guide us.

Today, children in ChildHope schools throughout Latin America and the Caribbean are waiting — waiting for someone willing to listen to the Father and, with a heart of compassion, help change their lives.

Prayer: Lord, as we humbly bow before you, our loving Father and great shepherd, we pray that we would experience overwhelming peace because of the confidence we have that you care for us and want to lead us in the path of life.

Psalm 95:6-11 (ESV)

Oh come, let us worship and bow down;
    let us kneel before the Lord, our Maker!
For he is our God,
    and we are the people of his pasture,
    and the sheep of his hand.
Today, if you hear his voice,
    do not harden your hearts, as at Meribah,
    as on the day at Massah in the wilderness,
when your fathers put me to the test
    and put me to the proof, though they had seen my work.
10 For forty years I loathed that generation
    and said, “They are a people who go astray in their heart,
    and they have not known my ways.”
11 Therefore I swore in my wrath,
    “They shall not enter my rest.”
