Mind, Mouth, & Movement // Psalm 47:1

I hope today’s verse meets you in a sweet spot. The Psalmist wrote in Psalm 47 how we are to come to God for worship: clapping hands, cries for joy, and singing songs of praise. All of those actions are just those: actions. They require us to put our entire existence into worship of God in mind, mouth, and movement. Perhaps you have experienced how actively doing something helps bond you with others. The activity helps activate our faith, deepen relationships, and renew our perspectives. So I hope this helps you think about how you should approach this Lord’s Day in anticipation for worship. Make sure your mind, mouth, and movements are in sync and you share that with God as well as others. This is precisely how we can experience the words of Jesus when He said, “I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete” (John 15:11, NIV). May we come together shouting cries of joy, clapping our hands in rhythm, and singing songs of praise. Let’s do it!
