Let me suggest an additional way of looking at this.
Our relationship with God, through his creative Word, Jesus, is indicated through his written word, scripture. We come to him in worship. We come to him in adoration. We come to him in awe. We come to him in mystery. And that worship, adoration, awe and mystery is modelled for us in the book of Psalms (from that written Word).
Here are two (out of many, many!) illustrations from the Psalms.
(1) Psalm 19. At first sight this looks like two completely separate pieces of writing joined, and rather awkwardly so, from different sources. How, one asks, are they related? The first part (1-6) is about created nature. The second part is about his “law” (to a first approximation, envisage this as we imagine our Bible today). But why, pray, are they together, in the same psalm?
But now, instead of viewing it as two separate, unrelated documents glued awkwardly together, see them as opposite sides of the same coin. God is revealed through nature and his word… together.
Note also the language of that first (nature) half. For the creationist tendency note how NON-literal, how NON-scientific, even how NON-“real” it is. Instead it is figurative; it is allegorical; it is about imagination not calculation. It is THIS type of language that is right next door to the “law”, the Bible.
The Psalms often model for us the importance of imagination in our relationship with God.
(As a not-so-little detour, if you wish, settle down and read Job chapters 38-42.)
(2) (Totally different!) This is about doubt, anxiety, etc. When we think about worship, we tend to think a little like, say, Psalm 87: “Glorious things of you are spoken!” Read it. Don’t worry too much about the historical and geographical detail. If I were to ask “is this worship?” the chances are we would all immediately and confidently answer: “Yes! yes! yes!”
Now continue into its next-door neighbour, Psalm 88. If I were to ask “is this worship?” would we immediately and confidently answer “yes! yes! yes!”? I suspect not!
The Bible’s very own worship-book gives us both 87 and 88. In the Psalms, God gives us permission to come before him not just with the overtly positive Psalm 87, but also in our brokenness of Psalm 88. God embraces us whether today is a Psalm-87 day or a Psalm-88 day.
Bring your doubt, bring your fear, bring your anxiety to him. He is the God not just of Psalm 87 but also of Psalm 88.
(Oh! church of God, how pastorally damaging is our removal of weekly discipline of psalms from the centrality of our gathered worship!)
