God deserves our worship because he formed the foundation, fixed the dimensions, stretched a measuring line across, and laid the cornerstone of the earth while the morning stars sang together.

 

God deserves our worship because he enclosed the sea behind doors when it burst from the womb, determined its boundaries, and declared, “You may come this far, but no farther; your proud waves stop here.”

 

God deserves our worship because he gives orders to the morning and shows dawn its place that it might take the earth by the edges and shake the wicked out of it.

 

God deserves our worship because he has traveled to the sources of the sea, walked in the depths of the oceans, seen the gates of deep darkness, and comprehended the expanse of the earth.

 

God deserves our worship because he knows the road to the home of light and where darkness lives; he has entered the storehouses of snow and hail; and he knows the way to the place where lightning is dispersed and the east winds are scattered over the earth.

 

God deserves our worship because he cuts a channel for the flooding rain to satisfy the parched land, causes the grass to sprout, and gives birth to the dew and frost of heaven.

 

God deserves our worship because he fastened the chains of the Pleiades, loosened the belt of Orion, brings out the constellations in their season, knows the ordinances of the heavens, and establishes their rule on the earth.

 

God deserves our worship because his heart has wisdom and mind understanding to number the clouds and tip over the water jars of heaven when the dust hardens like cast metal and the clods of dirt stick together.

 

God deserves our worship because he hunts prey for a lioness to satisfy the hunger of her young lions at the same time he provides the raven’s food when its young cries out.

 

God deserves our worship because he knows when each mountain goat gives birth and watches as deer deliver their offspring at the same time he creates the wild donkey to roam free while the wild ox helps us harvest grain.  

 

God deserves our worship because even though he created both the ostrich and the stork as large, winged, and feathered birds, only one of them has wisdom, only one can fly, and only one can run.

 

God deserves our worship because he gave the horse its strength, clothed its neck with the beauty of a flowing mane, allowed it to strike terror with its proud snorting, and created it to paw the ground with fierceness and rage with the anticipation of charging into the fray of battle.

 

God deserves our worship because it’s obvious from these examples that he is God and we aren’t.

 

(Adapted from Job 38-39)

    Excellent! While much of todays’s Christian music seems to be be centered upon what God does or has done for the individual ( personally); or is about a person’s experience, I believe we need more music about the character and actions of God. And while Christ is, and should be, the object of our worship, which is deeply personal, God/ Christ is deserving of our worship because as was stated in this article, He is God. Our music needs to be more “Christi-centric; more “Theo-centric” than “ego-centric.”
