Have you ever been so consumed, in the things you are asking God for, that you forget to praise Him? They may even be good things that you’re asking, but has worship become something that you do only on a Sunday morning? For me, this is an area that I want God to develop more keenly in my life, since it’s something that believers are commanded to do.
Listen to the words of Psalm 150, “Praise ye the Lord. Praise God in his sanctuary: praise him in the firmament of his power. Praise him for his mighty acts: praise him according to his excellent greatness. Praise him with the sound of the trumpet: praise him with the psaltery and harp. Praise him with the timbrel and dance: praise him with stringed instruments and organs. Praise him upon the loud cymbals: praise him upon the high sounding cymbals. Let every thing that hath breath praise the Lord. Praise ye the Lord” (KJV).
What is it that God has given you to praise Him with? Do you play an instrument? Do you write music or poetry? Can you dance? Do you have a mouth to speak of God’s truth? Do you have breath to sing with? There is so much that we can give back to God through worship, and He is worthy of our praise.
Let us ask God to help us worship Him in spirit and in truth (John 4:24).
