Psalm 98:4-6 says, Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth, burst into jubilant song with music; make music to the Lord with the harp, with the harp and the sound of singing, with trumpets and the blast of the ram’s horn — shout for joy before the Lord, the King. 
 
I attempt to read what is called daily lectionary every day. I don’t always achieve it, however each day  that is my goal The daily lectionary passages include two morning Psalms, an Old Testament passage, a Gospel passage, a passage from one of the New Testament letters, and two evening Psalms. So every day there are readings from various parts of the Bible. The daily lectionary passages can be found at https://www.presbyterianmission.org/devotions/ and on this website they are located in the upper right hand corner of the web page.
 
As I read the various daily lectionary passages, I read with an open mind and an open heart. I search the words of Scripture for a “word from God.” As I read I ask myself how God might be speaking to me through these particular words of Scripture. Sometimes I receive a definite word form God. Other times I don’t receive anything at all. It depends on the day and on my frame of mind. As I read the Bible, I search for that particular verse or phrase where God may be speaking to me. If I come across certain words, or a verse where I sense God is speaking, I ‘sit’ with it. I spend time thinking about it. I pray over ‘the word’ I have received contemplating where God is taking my thoughts or how God may be using those particular words of Scripture to speak to me. I also keep a journal nearby. Occasionally, I pick up the journal, I jot down the date and the verse of Scripture that I have discovered. I write down various random thoughts as they come to me. What I write down may be related to ‘the word’ I’ve received, or what I write down may be something totally different or unrelated to the verse I have been pondering. I just let my thoughts run wild, writing down whatever comes to mind.  
 
The day I read Psalm 98:4-6, the thought came to me that wherever we are, at any time, we can worship God. Worship isn’t just reserved for Sunday mornings. We can worship and praise God at any time, from anywhere. We can be filled with the Holy Spirit and worshipful on Tuesday or Thursday or at any time during the day. Worship is not just reserved for Sunday mornings. We can connect with God and worship him anytime. So, may God fill you with his Sprit and with his love in such a way that you worship him all day long, every day. 
 
Most blessed and holy God, we long to worship you.  May we be so are grateful for all you have done for us through your Son, Jesus, that our deepest desire is to worship you praise you at all times. Each day, let us shout for joy for all you have done.  Amen. 
 
Be Well,
Pastor C.F. Hoffman
