I just had to share this awesome song by Elevation Worship called Worthy. As with all songs I put on this blog, this obviously sounds amazing on surround sound. I particularly love the message of the song. God really is worthy of all our praise. Some people like to worship God when things are going well in their lives, but the true test of worship comes when things aren’t always golden in our lives.
When we suffer in silence, when we endure trials, do we have the strength to give God all our praise?
Think of the sufferings that Job went through and continued to remain faithful and still had the heart to worship. I think that the authenticity of worship for a Christian comes when you’ve done all to stand through each test and still have a praise left in your heart to sing a song of praise unto God despite all the hardships you may have gone through. I remember enduring a year and a half of rehabilitation after being in hospital for about 6 months recovering from a sickness that attacked my mind (encephalitis). In particular, this sickness attacked my ability to remember things – my short-term memories. Though I forgot things regularly during my rehabilitation experience, I somehow never forgot God which I believe my family thought that was a miracle. It’s one thing to forget what you did a few minutes ago, but never forgetting God has been and will always be a blessing in my life.
To the end that my glory may sing praise to You and not be silent. O Lord my God, I will give thanks to You forever.
The Lord is the One who Restores, Heals, Recovers all that we lose as part of our identity. When you have Jesus as part of your identity, no matter what life throws at you, the Lord is your redeemer. He is the One that recovers all that is taken away. That’s why I have to give Him the highest praise for what He has been doing in my life. So as you listen to this song, remember that the Lord’s name is worthy of all our praise no matter what it is that you are going through. If you simply remember this One important fact, no matter what storms of life you endure, God is the One Who is able to Recover all, so don’t forget that and Give God the Highest Praise, in Jesus Name, Amen! I pray that this song blesses you today. God Bless You Everybody! 🙂
