Worship is a simple yet powerful tool we have as believers. Worship is not limited to the songs, genre, lyrics, or place. Worship is a heart-position, and it’s all about Jesus.
“But the time is coming indeed it’s here now when true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth. The Father is looking for those who will worship him that way”
Here’s What Worship Does for Me
Worship for me is like washing of waters; it brings me peace that I can’t explain.
Worship is a gateway to God’s mighty presence. In a world of not-enoughs and continuous pressure, worship is how I have stayed sane.
‘Why, my soul, are you downcast? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior, and my God.”
Psalm 42:11 | NIV.
Worship reminds me how much God wants me and how much I want Him. I remember how meaningful my relationship with God is to me. It opens my eyes to see that nothing in this world is as big as my God. While worshipping, I feel like I’m seen by God, like I’m sitting right in front of him( haha, I sit to worship) and listening to his heart.
My favorite thing about worshipping God is how the Holy Spirit helps me worship better by reminding me how majestic God is. I really love God. A lot of times, we don’t understand God’s plan or not even agree with them. Still, in worship, I’m reminded of his ultimate plan.
“And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.”
Romans 8:28 | NIV.
My Worship Position
Most times, when I’m worshipping, I take the sit cross-legged position in a corner, listen to the lyrics of the songs and let my heart adore God and smile. When I’m in a worship position, nothing else matters to me (not my requests, not my worries and anxieties.) I keep my gaze on the power of God’s magnificent presence and let his promises keep me at peace.
“The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing. He makes me lie down in green pastures, and he leads me beside quiet waters.”
Psalm 23:1-2 | NIV
Who Ought to Worship?
It makes sense that David was a worshipper. He was a distraught man who found a way to stay sane. He was reminded of God’s presence through worship. Are you troubled, distraught? Then, worship is for you.
“Why, my soul, are you downcast? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior, and my God.” Psalm 42:11 | NIV
How I Worship
When I’m fellowshipping with God through worship, I don’t raise requests. I don’t need to ask God for anything because I’m always in awe of His great power and love for me.
I understand that it’s normal for our minds to wander when fellowshipping, but the Holy Spirit can help your mind not to wander. He helps my mind not to wander by drawing illustrations in my mind of how mighty God is.
Worship is for Every Believer
God is my peace. Worship is where I invest in my trust with God. There’s a reassurance when I’m worshipping. At that moment, I know that the mighty God is MY FATHER. He cares about me; he has the blueprint of my life and will bring me through life victorious. It’s the same for you.
‘You will keep them in Perfect Peace whose Heart is stayed on you because He trusts in You.’ Isaiah 26:3
