Worship…With Joe Praize

Just Worship

I woke up this morning with a nagging thought in my heart; I was not feeling the morning devotion I usually have every morning before starting my day. I searched the scriptures and found the beauty of oneness in Christianity-contrary to what we have here, Christianity is about harmony, love, togetherness. Well… that is a topic for another day. Today it is all about worship and its importance. Romans 12:1 “Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship.”

Human wants are insatiable; we keep asking and asking… not really our fault, we can blame it on our DNA, (lol). However, it does not stop us to think and reflect on how far we have come, what lies ahead and the creator who is in the center of it all. How many times have you worshipped the Lord for who He is and not what you stand to get from Him? This is where some ministers of the gospel get it wrong; they emphasize more of the material gains of praises and worship that they neglect the who reason why we worship in the first place.

If you have everything you have ever dreamt of, would you still worship God? Worship matters, not because you are in need, or because you are in church, worship matters because God loves it when we worship Him. He seeks people who will worship him in spirit and truth.

Four things you need to know about worship
Worship in truth and spirit is about your mentality-your state of mind. The motive of your songs to God.

True worshippers place their focus on God
The aim of worship should be the sole desire to honor God for who He is; it is not anchored on your likes, dislikes, mood, priorities. It is a total focus on Him.

Worship Involves letting all go, to spend time offering songs to him
Even though we are Christians, or tagged Christians, does not stop us from facing trying times, but our heavenly Father has assured us victory Isaiah 41:10 “So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”

So, before you worship God, remove your opinion, questions, worries, and worship with appropriate honor due to God. In this process, you are telling God, nothing else matters but Him.

Worships Involves Total surrender
Romans 12: 1 as stated above-you need to realize that your body, your home, car, job and everything else belong to God. He is your creator-Psalms 127:1-3 “Unless the Lord builds the house, the builders labor in vain. Unless the Lord watches over the city, the guards stand watch in vain. In vain, you rise early and stay up late, toiling for food to eat—for He grants sleep to those he loves.”

Romans 12:1
“I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship.”

Worship Is Celebrating God For What He Has Done
The Psalmist could not have explained any better, read the following Psalm 100:1-5 NIV
1 Shout for joy to the LORD, all the Earth.
2 Worship the LORD with gladness; come before Him with joyful songs.
3 Know that the LORD is God. It is He who made us, and we are His; we are His people, the sheep of His pasture.
4 Enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise; give thanks to Him and praise His name.
5 For the LORD is good and His love endures forever; His faithfulness continues through all generations.

So what are you waiting for? Just worship Him!!! He deserves your true praise and worship

This song- Mighty God lyrics by Joe Praize caps it all
Oh Lord, my God, Jesus
I’ll speak of Your Glory,
I will show forth Your beauty
If I dance it won’t be enough,
And If I shout it won’t be enough
I’ll speak of Your Glory,
I will show forth Your beauty
If I dance it won’t be enough,
And If I shout it won’t be enough

For you are the great and mighty King
You rule in every nation
Oh praise this Holy God,
You are worthy to be praised
You are Alpha and Omega, I worship you today
In you I put my trust, Your name I will extol
