Worship is giving value to Someone. It is our expression of worth. It is not merely limited to songs though they are the best tools that God has gifted us to express our worship. It is a hearfelt response that we give to Him that places value on Him! And when we worship, we always become like Who we worship.
God created us to be worshipers. He is looking for worshipers NOT our worship! He is into relationships. He is after our hearts of being worshipers that produces our deeds to worship.
We have been given a supreme privilege and a great God-given opportunity to respond to His great love in worship. He called us to be worshipers that postures us to be exposed into His mighty and loving presence influencing all that we are to be conformed into all that He is.
Everything flows from us being worshipers! Everything about healing, seeing, hearing, provision, wisdom, strength, etc, we catch and learn as worshipers. It is in this place of intimacy when heaven’s atmosphere invades the earth’s making His “heaven on earth” will to come and manifest before our eyes!
When we put Him FIRST, seek Him FIRST, we have a greater capacity to do everything that follows in the list. When we love Him FIRST, we become more effective in loving others!
“For GOD is great, and worth a thousand Hallelujahs. His terrible beauty makes the gods look cheap; Pagan gods are mere tatters and rags. GOD made the heavens— ROYAL SPLENDOR RADIATES FROM HIM, A POWERFUL BEAUTY SETS HIM APART.
Bravo, GOD, Bravo! Everyone join in the great shout: Encore! In awe before the beauty, in awe before the might. Bring gifts and celebrate, Bow before the beauty of GOD, Then to your knees—EVERYONE WORSHIP!”
Psalm 96:5-9 MSG
