I Love to Worship You
I was listening to the song I love to worship you.
I love to worship the Lord. I love those moments when He takes me into His Presence and I can feel Him, there is a connection which is sometimes indescribable. I had such a moment when I was writing the post for Sabbath Rest this past week. Those moments of writing led me to declare “I love You Lord”, my God” because I was yet again in awe as I saw the Lord. Sometimes the way the Spirit works in me and for me leaves me in such a state of wonder and this is why I love to worship the Lord. Singing in my heart, praying, this is one of the greatest. These extraordinary moments don’t come often and thus they become unforgettable. I remember one morning driving to work and I was in prayer and I felt Jesus with me, I knew He was there. His Presence just covered me and a smile flowed from my heart to my lips as I was bathe in sweet joy. This moment occurred years ago yet it is just as clear to me today as if it was this morning. Once I was preparing to speak at my Church for Family Day and of course I was in prayer before leaving for the church and I ask the Lord to be with me as I brought forth the message and He spoke clearly almost audible to me that He was already with me and He was. One morning this past summer my devotional was dealing with His mercy and I was mediating on the word mercy and when I got to the end of my street I was not very focus as I was thinking about mercy and I pulled out in front of a car I didn’t see but God did and before I could offer a thank you the car didn’t hit me the Lord said to me “that’s mercy”. I thought how amazing of You to give me such an example. This is the God we serve, how can we not love to worship Him.
Worship occurs in different ways. We should not become stuck in the belief worship happens only in the corporate setting. It does not always stem from a period of prasing be it corporate or individually. I have discovered great and my most amazing worship experiences when it is just me and God in unplanned time, moments that just happen. Moments where God decides to shows up.
Honor the Lord for His the glory of His name. Worship the Lord in the splendor of his holiness. Psalm 29:2 NLT
Exult in His Holy Name; rejoice, you who worship the Lord. Psalm 105:3 NLT
But she came and worshiped him. Matthew 15:25a NLT
