When you Worship God choose your Bible Wisely

john316-sunrise-gansbaaiThis morning  i felt like praising God with a song. i picked up my guitar and the Holy Spirit prompted me to sing Psalm 100. I did so and looked up the song on the internet as i was sitting in front of my computer at the time. i started signing and the words displayed was from the NIV translation.

 

As i was signing i once again noticed why reading the NIV is not a good idea as it take away whom God really is. This is one verse from the NIV

“give thanks to him and praise his name”

Look to the words him. My God is worthy of Him and not him

This is the same verse in the NKJV

Be thankful to Him, and bless His name

Next time you take your Bible to worship God choose wisely as the NIV deny whom God and Jesus really is

This is the Psalm i sang this morning

Make a joyful shout to the Lord, all you lands!
Serve the Lord with gladness;
Come before His presence with singing.
Know that the Lord, He is God;
It is He who has made us, and not we ourselves;
We are His people and the sheep of His pasture.

Enter into His gates with thanksgiving,
And into His courts with praise.
Be thankful to Him, and bless His name.
For the Lord is good;
His mercy is everlasting,
And His truth endures to all generations.

Psalm 100

Have a blessed day with Jesus
Johan
