When I first woke up I just laid in bed and worshiped the Lord in my heart. I was thanking Him for how He has created our bodies to function. I have been watching a video about our circadian rhythm. I was standing in awe of His indescribable brilliance.
Each of you reading this can say the same thing. Though our circumstances are multi varied, there is a common denominator. God is truly in the center of our lives. I wrote in my journal.
‘Every aspect of my life has You as the center. My conception, womb time, all my growing up years to the present. All under Your protective hand. No one knows the details except You. I only know what You have told me or I remember. I stand in awe of You ~ expressionless ~ I am so Yours.’
I am aghast to think of the years I have wasted entertaining idols in my heart. Oh, they were not consciously set in place. They set themselves up as soon as I turned to my flesh in place of the Lord. Doing things in my own strength, or relying on something or someone, all equated to unbelief. Isaiah 5:13 says, “Therefore my people have gone into captivity, because they have no knowledge…”
We are created to worship. Worship is built into our heart. The enemy will seek myriad ways to distract us, derail us, and keep us too busy to spend time with the Lord in intimate communion.
There is a righteous principle for worship found in John 4:23-24. It says, “…when 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.”
One way we do this is to glorify Him through our words. After meditating on yesterday’s verses I came to a conclusion. All of His creation glorifies Him. Half Dome in Yosemite is a tribute of its Creator. Does it have breath like you and I do?
Psalm 19:1 says, “The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament shows His handiwork.” Ephesians 2:10 says that we are His workmanship. Psalm 8:3 says that the heavens are the work of His fingers.
He is glorified through testimony. The Grand Canyon testifies of a Creator. The rocks cry out ‘glory’ as they stand where He placed them. Let our lives cry out ‘glory’ as we serve Him and worship Him in spirit and in truth.
