Worship can be of two types. Private or Corporate. Private is when we spend time with the Lord alone. Corporate is when we worship the Lord together with a couple of other believers, or in a congregation as in a church. Whether worship is private or corporate, the moment we set our hearts to seek the Lord, we attract the Presence of God. “If you look for me wholeheartedly you will find me.” Jeremiah 29:13
When God says ‘you will find me’, there are several things that are intricately embedded in that word “ME”. God is pure, Holy, lovely, gentle, Just, jealous, faithful, kind, loving, righteous, impartial, glorious, wise, full of understanding, full of knowledge, knows the end from the beginning, and oh…. the list is truly endless. As some saints of God say, “Eternity will not be enough to know or comprehend God fully”. When we have had but a glimpse of understanding in one facet, we still have several and several more facets of God to comprehend and even Eternity wouldn’t suffice for us to have a complete knowledge of God.
But when we do seek the Lord with diligent hearts, in Worship, God in His infinite mercies reveals a fraction of His character to us. And when He does, that revelation has the power to change ‘our’ character!!! That’s the power of Worship!!!
I have heard several testimonies of how just the “private worship time’ has changed the attitude of peoples hearts. Personally speaking, most of the ‘idols of my heart’ were exposed during worship time. I would not have recognised them as something that God detests had it not been for the ‘presence of God’ that promises to be there when we seek Him. Remember Jesus said, When two or three are gathered in my name, I will be in their midst? Indeed the Lord comes as we worship Him in truth and exposes our darkness and leads us into light. That’s the sanctification process that is needed in every believers life on a day to day basis!!!!
Worship simply is not a matter of choice. It must be an integral part of your everyday life.
In His light ALONE, our darkness is exposed!!! The more we draw closer Jesus, the pure and Holy One, the cleaner we are made. O Saint of God, ignore not the Worship of the Lord, for that’s a powerful Key to be conformed to His image!!!
Blessed Week guys!!!
