Obie Philpot wrote the spiritual “He’s Got the World in His Hands.” The song is a simple but powerful truth. It celebrates that Almighty God created and sustains the universe and everything in it. The writer of Psalm 95 captured the same truth years ago. He invited everyone to sing to the LORD, and shout joyfully to the Rock of our salvation. Sincere singing to God evokes within us the acknowledgement of God’s greatness. It can help us grasp our own identity. When we sing sincerely, we confess that God created us, sustains us, and supplies our every need. We express gratitude to God for giving us eternal salvation through His Son. Worshipful singing urges us to love and obey God who provides all that we need. It causes us to reject anything or anyone else as the cause of our existence or well-being. The psalmist offers some other compelling reasons why we should worship the LORD. He says the LORD is a great God, a great King above all gods. He holds in His hands the depth of the earth and the mightiest mountains. The sea belongs to Him, for He made it. He formed the dry land also. Since God is the Source of everything that exists, including every human being, it makes very good sense to acknowledge God’s supremacy. It makes very good sense to surrender to Him, and to His Son, and to carry out God’s good pleasure here on the earth.
