WORSHIP

Abandon yourself wholeheartedly, holding nothing back or in reserve in worshipping The Lord your God and King. Everyday of your life should be a proper act of true Spiritual Worship, which is a sacrificial offering of your life offered up to The Almighty, as a sweet smelling and beautifully pleasing aroma to Him. (Romans 12:1, 2 Corinthians 2:14-16 NIV) Here are some scriptures and thoughts to consider. We are to worship The Lord with our mouths, in the midst of others. (Psalm 109:30 NIV) Our posture in worship, at times, should be to bow and kneel before Him. (Psalm 95:6 NIV) Our worship of Him should produce real joy. (Luke 4:52 NIV) Our worship of should include praise, proclamation, making His Name known, sing songs that tell of His wonderful acts, rejoicing, seeking His face, not His hand and remembering His marvelous deeds. (Psalm 105:1-5 NIV) when we worship, we should shout with joy, worship with gladness, sing songs of joy and thanksgiving, because He is ever faithful and His love endures forever, even unto all generations. (Psalm 100:1-5 NIV) "Celebrate and worship his holy name with all your heart. Trust the Lord and his mighty power. Worship him always."(1 Chronicles 16:10, 11 CEVUK00) Jesus replied, “The Scriptures say, ‘You must worship the Lord your God and serve only him.’ ” (Luke 4:8 NLT) For God is Spirit, so those who worship him must worship in spirit and in truth.” (John 4:24 NLT) If any nation refuses to go and worship the Lord Almighty as king, then rain will not fall on their land. (Zechariah 14:17 GNT) Ascribe to the Lord the glory due his name; worship the Lord in the splendor of his holiness. (Psalm 29:2 NIV) Ascribe to the Lord the glory due his name; bring an offering, and come into his courts! (Psalm 96:8 ESV) Praise the Lord's glorious name; bring an offering and come into his Temple. Bow down before the Holy One when he appears; (1 Chronicles 16:29 GNT) Apparently, even rain is connected to our Worship!  Wow! We must be willing to not hold back any glory and honor that is due His Name and when we come before Him to Worship we should not come empty handed, but bring an offering of thanksgiving and praise. Finally: Praise the Lord. Praise God in his sanctuary; praise him in his mighty heavens. Praise him for his acts of power; praise him for his surpassing greatness. Praise him with the sounding of the trumpet, praise him with the harp and lyre, praise him with timbrel and dancing, praise him with the strings and pipe, praise him with the clash of cymbals, praise him with resounding cymbals. Let everything that has breath praise the Lord. Praise the Lord. (‭Psalm‬ ‭150‬:‭1-6‬ NIV)

A simple Prayer for you...

When God takes something from your grasp, he's not punishing you, but merely opening your hands to receive something better. Concentrate on this sentence. "The will of God will never take you where the Grace of God will not protect you." Something good will happen to you today, something that you have been waiting to hear. Just 27 Words, 'God our Father, walk through my house and take away all my worries and illnesses and please watch over and heal my family in your name, Amen.' This prayer is so powerful. I would ask that you pass this prayer to 12 people including me. A blessing is coming to you in form of a new job, a house, marriage or financially.  Does God come first in your life? If so,stop what you're doing and pray this now.  Watch what He does.
