“You worship what you do not know; we know what we worship, for salvation is of the Jews. BUT THE HOUR IS COMING, AND NOW IS, WHEN THE TRUE WORSHIPERS WILL WORSHIP THE FATHER IN SPIRIT AND TRUTH; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him. GOD IS SPIRIT, AND THOSE WHO WORSHIP HIM MUST WORSHIP IN SPIRIT AND TRUTH.”(John 4:22-24 NKJV).
YOU ARE ALPHA AND OMEGA; I WORSHIP YOU OH LORD. YOU ARE WORTHY TO BE PRAISED. I GIVE YOU ALL THE GLORY,AND I GIVE YOU ALL THE PRAISE, I WORSHIP YOU MY LORD; BECAUSE, YOU ARE WORTHY TO BE PRAISE.
“Make a joyful shout to the Lord , all you lands! Serve the Lord with gladness; Come before His presence with singing. Know that the Lord , He is God; It is He who has made us, and not we ourselves; We are His people and the sheep of His pasture. Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, And into His courts with praise. Be thankful to Him, and bless His name”.(Psalms 100:1-4 NKJV).
“He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.”(Psalm 91:1, NKJV).
Every one of us should have a secret place in our relationship with God, an inner sanctuary where you don’t allow everything in. You guard your secret place against any worry, offense, bitterness, or trouble that may behappening on the outside. You don’t let that into the inner sanctuary of your heart. Your secret place should be a place of hope, of peace, of rest, of faith.
If you’re allowing everything into your secret place—what they said, what didn’t work out, the stress, the traffic, the hurt—it will become contaminated. It will affect your attitude, your relationships, your vision, and you’ll live feeling frustrated, upset, and worried. Quit giving negative things so much attention, reliving the hurt, thinking about the offense, dwelling on the disappointment. Don’t bring that close to your heart. It doesn’t belong in your secret place. The good news is, you control that door. You can’t stop the storm around you, but you can stop the storm from getting in you.
Psalm 100:4 tells us how to worship God.
“Enter into His gates with Thanksgiving, And into His courts with Praise. Be Thankful to Him, and bless His Name”.
+How Thankful are unto the Lord?
+We enter our Lord’s courts with praise.
+Thanksgiving, Praise and Worship are not the same, but they work very well together when ministering unto the Lord.
+Thanksgiving is showing appreciation, gratitude and thankfulness to God for what He has done for us.
+Praise is acknowledging all of God’s Attributes.
+Worship is to put God Before and Above everyone and everything, and live the lifestyle that bears the Fruits of that Worship.
•Continue to let the WORD of God be the standard for your life. Always LOVING others like Christ Jesus Loves us while keeping our Faith, Trust and Confidence in Him.
•BLESSED you are and BLESSED you will always be and to God be all the GLORY. Amen!
