Worship

  • John 4:23-24 Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in the Spirit and in truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks. God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in the Spirit and in truth.
  • Psalm 95:6 Come, let us bow down in worship; let us kneel before the Lord our Maker.
  • Hebrews 12:28-29 Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us be thankful, and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe, for our “God is a consuming fire”.

We give thanks to God for His goodness and provision. We praise Him because He is awesome and deserves to be exalted. We worship Him because He is holy and reverence and honor belong to Him. Worship is primarily an attitude of the heart. Worship is what they do in heaven all the time (Revelation 4:8-9). True worship brings you into the presence of Almighty God. Worship, in this case, is not feel-good songs that please your senses. True worship, in words, songs or actions, is when our hearts are completely yielded to honor the Lord Most High. It’s all about Him, about exalting Him, adoring Him, surrendering to Him, and blessing His heart. We forget ourselves, our needs, our wants, our troubles and we just love on Him.

How to worship God:
  1. Humble yourself before God and start thanking Him for His Son.
  2. Thank Jesus for your salvation, peace, protection, healing and all that He paid the price for on the cross. Praise Him for all He has done and all He is doing right now as your mediator before the Father.
  3. Thank the Holy Spirit for being your ever-present Companion, your Helper.
  4. Surrender to God and love on Him, adore Him, exalt Him, extol Him. Thank Him, praise Him and worship Him! Lift up holy hands to Him (1 Timothy 2:8). In worship, you forget about yourself, your needs, your troubles, etc. It’s all about Him.


Call to action:
Get down on your knees in private and lavish your love on God. Start with 5 minutes and work your way up to an extended period of time – 30 minutes to 1 hour (or longer if you wish). Let it be all about adoring and exalting Him. He deserves it.
