ACKNOWLEDGE AND WORSHIP


Psalm 29:2


"Ascribe to the Lord the glory due his name; worship the Lord in the splendor of his holiness." NIV


"Give unto the LORD the glory due unto his name; worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness." KJV


To ascribe is to acknowledge the source or owner of something. God's name is the source of love, mercy, wisdom, and power. We are to honor His name as such in our praise and worship. Our worship is not dependent on the beautiful clothes and adornment we wear but it is holy and acceptable to God when we worship with clean, humble hearts.


Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that you are the source of all things good and holy. Help us Lord to always bring honor to your name and to approach you with pure and clean hearts. We pray in Jesus' name. Amen

Amen! We worry so much of material stuff, when God just wants us with pure hearts and clean hands.

Amen, Bobbi! I love that you defined “ascribe” for us. I will try to remember that it is to acknowledge the source of something.
