In Psalm 95, the Lord is
revealed as our Maker. JEHOVAH HOSSENU is His Name in Hebrew. We are exhorted
in Psalm 95 to sing and shout joyfully to our Lord with psalms and come before His presence with thanksgiving. For the Lord is the great God, and the great King above all gods.
In His Hand are the deep places of the earth; the heights of the hills are His also.
The sea is His, for He made it; and his hands formed the dry land.
We are also exhorted to bow down and kneel before the Lord our Maker for He is our God, and we are the people of His
pasture and the sheep of His hand. Worship means singing and shouting joyfully with psalms to our God and bowing down and
kneeling before Him. We are not supposed to worship Him in a mechanical manner
without knowing His great Personality. We worship Him because He is the great God, the great King above all gods, and our
He is the great God. The deep places of the earth are in His hand.
The visible surface of the earth and all the hidden minerals beneath its surface, which are being processed for precious
metals out of ore, etc., are in His hand. No nation, though owning the territory
containing such earthly treasures can claim privy to the property of God because God is the Owner of the whole earth. Silver
and gold, which are extracted from the ore, belong to Him. As such, the nations possessing such minerals in their territories
should share the same with the poor nations. He controls the whole earth so that it rotates by His power.
The heights of the hills
whence the rivers of the whole world take birth are His. Similarly, the sea and
the precious marine products therein are His. We are the children of the great
God Who is the Owner of the heaven, the earth and the sea. We are the people
of His pasture and the sheep of His hand. If we get this revelation, then we
can claim and appropriate all His resources for our ministries.
We are the children of the
great King Who is above all gods. He is above all political and religious leaders,
kingly rulers of this world or the rulers of the kingdom of the devil. Nebuchadanezzaar
had been dethroned, and ate grass as oxen, consequent to the severe judgment of God, for his pride. He then praised and honored
God that liveth for ever, whose dominion is an everlasting
dominion, and his kingdom is from generation to generation; and all the inhabitants of the earth are reputed as nothing: and
He doeth according to His will in the army of heaven, and among the inhabitants of the earth: and none can stay his hand,
or say unto Him, What does thou?..and those that walk in pride He is able to base (Dan.4:34-37). If you get a revelation
of what you are in the Kingdom of God, no ruler on this earth or the Satan can exercise any authority or power over you.
Our Lord is our Maker because
He has made us in our mothers wombs. He formed your inward parts in the mothers
womb. You were fearfully and wonderfully made.
When you were made in secret and skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth (which means the lowest parts
of the mothers womb), His eyes saw your substance being yet unformed. (Psalm 139:13-16).
What a great revelation about your birth! He took you out of the mothers womb.
You were cast upon Him from birth. From your mothers womb, He has been
your God (Ps.22: 9-10).
The Psalmist exhorts us
finally, with a word of admonition, in this psalm that as we are the people of His pasture: and the sheep of His hand, we
should heed and obey Him. Today if ye will hear His voice, harden not your heart, as in the provocation, and as in the day of temptation in the
wilderness; when your fathers tempted Me, proved Me, and saw My work. Dearly
beloved, as you read this message today, you should obey Him because tomorrow is not yours.
Do not harden your heart!
JEHOVAH HOSSENU who has
wonderfully made you in your mothers womb through Christ Jesus will also make every thing for you in this world, and in the
world to come. He will go before you and will make all the crooked ways straight. He will make all things new in your life
if you believe and worship Him in the manner as the Psalmist exhorts.
