Are you a Worshiper.?
"... thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength" -Mark 12:30
The enemy hates when we worship and praise God.
The more we know who God is, the more our hearts begin to respond in worship. What is involved in truly worshiping Him? The essence of worship is this: Regardless of negative circumstances or complete emotional turmoil, any day, every day. I bow my heart and life before God Almighty, acknowledging that He is Supreme and above everything else. Worship changes the atmosphere, it changes your thought process, it changes your attitude. It feels your heart with joy. There is freedom in worship.
Worshiping is confession that when everything that surrounds your life and screams negativity and doubt and all the other junk the enemy tries to push on you... that no matter what! "God is Just! He loves you! He is Above All, He is Infinite, He is your Jehovah Jireh, and Worthy of Praise because He is Good All The Time, Blessed be the name of the Lord." When you feel overwhelmed and don't know why God has allowed a situation, reaffirm your faith in God with praise! His word says, "Though He slay me, yet will I trust Him!" -Job 13:15 He has His Best for You! Trust in God regardless of the changing circumstances of life.
Worship Him in the midst of your storm! Even if you don’t feel like it! Dig deep down and sing to God above! Our worship is deep within us calling out to the deep in God. Your worship involves "eye contact" with God. That means you have to forget everything else. Everything that’s around you, in front of you, behind you and stare at the face of God knowing He is shaking His head in approval at the song you are singing to Him. Loving on you as you love on Him. Sing your song unashamed! Shout for joy when you Mention His Name! Worship your Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!
Chains break when you Worship, the devil can’t stay he tucks his tail and runs, there is power in your praise to God! Don’t let the enemy tell you that you are not the next american idol! I don’t want an American Idol! I just want God! I just want to worship Him! It doesn’t matter what it looks like or what it sounds like to anyone else. You have an audience of One! So if the enemy tells you to leave your praise at church….SING LOUDER! Focus on God creates the humble heart that attracts the favor of God -James 4:6
The devil will attempt to redirect your focus to anything but God. Use every spiritual weapon God has made available to you. Daily put on the whole armor of God. -Ephesians 6:10-18 Develop your skills. Search the Scriptures. Pray the Word of God out loud. Loose the peace and power of the kingdom of God to take the place of fear in your life. -Matthew 16:19 Spend much time in His presence Praising through it all! Don’t back down, we don’t move backwards in defeat! We move forward with the Power of God in us! Hallelujah!
May we all grow to be worshipers of God.
Father God, I want to always worship You in the purest sense of the word. Empower me to live like I believe when I worship You. Remind me why I was created and always let my songs come from a place of sincerity and adoration in spirit & truth. I want to be a true worshipper. In Your Loving Name I pray, Amen.
