True Worship Is Life-Changing

“When You said, ‘Seek My face,’ My heart said to You, ‘Your face, Lord, I will seek.'” Psalm 27:8

“Seek the LORD while He may be found, Call upon Him while He is near.” Isaiah 55:6

God desires that we have a relationship with His Son, Jesus Christ. There is no one greater to have as a Best Friend. It is through our daily worship that we seek the Lord. Just have little talks with Jesus throughout your day.

We receive spiritual, mental, emotional, and physical strength and renewal from worship. Not only do we draw closer to our Creator, we receive peace, and have an overall calm in our minds because we have the assurance that God loves us. Placing our lives in His Righteous hands leads to victory!

We have the advantage of Divine Help, guidance, and comfort. The chaos turns into stability. Hardships no longer overwhelm us because we have a Father who cares and always listens to our prayers. Include meditation in your worship by closing your eyes for a few minutes which gives the Holy Spirit the opportunity to bless you with a spiritual recharge.

Declare every day, I have a Father who created me and always desires the best for me. Stay close to Christ who loves you with an everlasting love.

Prayer: Jesus, we want to say thank you for the gift of Your love and Your life. We desire to have a close relationship with you. We pray for the blessings of peace and strength over our lives. We trust Your plans for us. Lead us through our earthly journey so we can meet You one day and live eternally in a perfect New Heaven and New Earth. We ask this prayer in Your Worthy name, Amen.

Worshipping a Holy God

“Be Holy, because I am Holy. ( 1 Peter 1:16)

Our worship of God is a result of our perception of God. Because our life experiences shape our values and we are influenced and shaped by those experiences, our love and reverence for God will vary. But God does not leave us in the dilemma from being born in sin that having desperately wicked hearts places us in.

“Speak to all the congregation of the people of Israel and say to them, ‘You shall be holy, for I the LORD your God am Holy'” (Leviticus 19:2).

God gives us the foundation in the Scriptures to build our knowledge and relationship with Him. He teaches us using a straightforward description, “I am Holy.”

Jesus willingly became the sacrifice for the redemption of our sins. We have a spiritual connection with Jesus Christ, so there should be no variation in the meaning of holiness. Through prayer and study, we fully comprehend that God is Holy. We have Divine intervention ensuring that our understanding is in sync with who God says He is.

The influencers readily try to define our worship experience. Yet, we must remember that our relationship with God is 1:1. We will not receive our reward of eternal life [Revelation 22:12] based on collective worship. We cannot sing our way to God despite popular trending worship movements. God does not require us to experience the escalation of our emotions as an outward sign of worship.

When linked to Jesus Christ, our hearts receive the spiritual nutrients required for an in-depth relationship with our Creator. This is one of the Holy Spirit’s functions, which is why we pray for daily anointing [not reflected in speaking in unknown tongues or shouting holy dances]. From the Holy Spirit, we receive daily spiritual transformation of our hearts–minds that allows us to become holy.

Our worship reveals the love and adoration that we have for God. To worship Him is to reverence our Heavenly Father, who we will never fully understand. Yet, our love for Jesus Christ and daily repentance, surrender, and obedience allows us to invite the Holy Spirit to shower us daily with a Pentecost experience that draws us closer to God.

“But the hour is coming, and is now here, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for the Father is seeking such people to worship him” (John 4:23).

Prayer: God, we desire a deeper relationship with You. We pray for the anointing of the Holy Spirit. Draw us closer to You, Jesus. In the Worthy Name of Jesus, we pray. Amen.
