Worship

Worship is an expression of the heart. John 4:24 says, “God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.”
 
Worship is an essential aspect of intimate communion with the Lord. I think of the words to a song: I worship You, Almighty God, there is none like You. I worship You O Prince of Peace, that is what I want to do. I give You praise…
 
Worship is drinking in the Presence of the Lord, and lifting our heart up to Him through words that express our wonder and awe. It is acknowledging who He is through our heart-lips.
 
It is all about being and not doing. It is abiding vitally united to Him, spirit, soul, and body. Worship is as natural as breathing. Acts 17:28 says, “For in Him we live and move and have our being…”
 
Colossians 3:2-3 says, “Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth. For you died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God.”
 
Worship is an expression of love through spontaneous words that bubble up from our heart. It isn’t rote, or canned, or forced. It is like an artesian well. It springs up from our inner being. Here is a new song.
 
The Embracing
 
You call me to Yourself O the wonder of such love. You draw me close to You. You whisper words that transform and strengthen my faith. You reveal truths that set me emotionally free. I grasp each one in a joyful embrace. You delight my heart and fill it with peace.
 
You give me songs of deliverance and songs of grace. They are new songs to worship You. As I focus on You all else fades. You’re my center thought as I run this race. I keep my eyes on You and I dwell in Your nature. My thoughts explode and expand their space.
 
O Your fullness is beyond my understanding. I only touch the surface of a depth unending. Take me deeper Lord in intimacy with You that nothing on this earth can rival. In Your Presence is fullness of joy and pleasures forevermore. I embrace You as You are embracing me.
