Today, I have a video from my favourite person Dan Stevers called Doxology (means: a liturgical formula of praise to God.).
I feel that we must really seek a life that gives us reasons to praise and worship God daily. It says in: Psalm 150:6 – Let everything that has breath praise the Lord. Praise the Lord. If we all have breath, we must live life with praise continually being in our mouths. Each day is a blessing in that many people did not see today, but if you are reading this…you are blessed to be alive. Life is a precious gift. Let us not squander this life with prayer-lessness, praise-lessness and worship-lessness (I know, I’m making up these words – humor me). God seeks those that will worship Him in Spirit and in Truth.
John 4:24 God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in the Spirit and in truth.”
We cannot worship the Father in this way if our flesh is fed more than our spirit.
The Lord Jesus sent us a Helper, who is the Holy Spirit to show us how to live life in a state of worship unto God Daily. It’s time to starve our fleshy desires and feed our spirits with the Holy things of God. We have to go back to the basics and reclaim our unity with the Holy Spirit once again. If we want to walk in the full power of the Spirit, we need to do what is necessary in order to feed it and die to the flesh.
The World is full of distractions, but we have the Bible to show us how we can maintain our focus on the important things in life.
God has to be your TOP #1 priority before anything else. Many people think that by putting God first you automatically get stuff…which we call “blessings”, but that in a way is a form of self-deception in that if all you are seeking is to get stuff from God, then you are still entertaining the fleshy side of you that seeks self-gratification through things, rather than seeking the intimacy one achieves by being in constant communication with the Lord of Hosts, our Lord Jesus Christ.
God seeks relationship, and worship is that link that brings us closer to Him. The reason why He seeks worshipers to worship Him in Spirit and in Truth, is because it is only through the Spirit, and it is only in those who pursue and live by the Truth that will be able to tap into the very Heart of God.
David is a great example of such a worshiper, for he was a man after God’s Heart. The question we must ask ourselves today is … Are we after God’s heart, or are we after God’s stuff?
As I spend time in my prayer closet, I’ve come to feel that God is always near us…but the reason why it seems like He is so far away from us at times is because we haven’t fine tuned our spirits truthfully to hear Him when He calls us. Instead, we have nurtured a heart that seeks after the things that give us temporary pleasures and have ultimately blocked out the voice of Holy Spirit. What will it take for God to get your full attention? It’s amazing that in most cases, people remember God in the bad times…but God doesn’t want to be remembered only in the bad times….He wants to be a part of all the Good times in your life as well.
I believe that it is time for God to take the Throne-room of our hearts and take a seat. God is sovereign and He will only become sovereign to you when you decide that other things can wait, because “Lord, Your servant is listening.” I believe that in the present time, God wants to use those whose hearts are seeking Him diligently. It’s time to bend to the Will of God for your lives and it’s time to forsake our selfish attitudes and set aside our differences with people so that forgiveness reigns in your heart and peace travels with you because it says in God’s Word, that Only the Pure in Heart will see God.
