Psalms 99:2-5

The Lord is great in Zion, and He is exalted above all the peoples. Let them praise Your great and awesome name. Holy is He. The strength of the King loves justice; you have established equity; you have executed justice and righteousness in Jacob. Exalt the Lord our God and worship at His footstool. Holy is He.

Worship is a right response to God!

There are three words in this passage that express how we respond to God: praise, worship and exalt. We praise God for what He has done; we worship God for who He is; and we exalt God in the eyes of other people.

If you truly come to an awareness of the presence of God in your life, these three things will be the natural result. The more you realize of what God has done for you, the fuller your heart gets, until you just have to praise Him for it.

"Worship at His footstool." The more aware you become of who He is, the more you will become aware of how very little you are; you will realize that the world does not revolve around you, but around Him, and you will want to direct the energy and worship of your life toward Him.

And the more God becomes the center of your life, the more you will look for ways to help others see Him for who He is.
