I Do, Worship You For Your Goodness And Your Mercy
“O Lord, thou art my God; I will exalt thee, I will praise thy name; for thou hast done wonderful things; thy counsels of old are faithfulness and truth.”
There is something powerful and ethereal about worship that unbelievers and some believers do not understand. You hear questions like “what is going on or why do we have to worship God? They don’t just get it. First of all, it is difficult, impossible even to worship God if you do not know Him or you do not remember where and what you’ve been through.
People who feel entitled do not see reasons why we should worship God. After all, it is normal to wake up every morning, walk to the office by yourself without any aid; it is normal to feel hungry and get food. The truth is, not everyone is that fortunate. The reason you can do all these without taking medications or asking someone for help is because of God’s grace upon your life.
Why do we worship God?
We worship God for who He is: we serve a living God, He is the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. He alone is God, isn’t it wonderful that we are privileged to have a Glorious Father?
2 Samuel 7:22 “Wherefore thou art great, O Lord God: for there is none like thee, neither is there any God beside thee, according to all that we have heard with our ears.”
For what He has done: our God is a good God, He has dealt with us wondrously, the reason we are here today is because of Him. He owes us nothing, but we owe Him everything.
It hurts to hear Christians say “nothing is working my life, I don’t need to thank or worship Him,” others will say “I lost my job, I lost my house.” Let’s take a look at what you just said; “Nothing is working in my life” that’s false; your eyes, nose, mouth, heart, kidney, etc. are working aren’t they? If you lost something, He is the reason you’ve not lost everything! He is forever faithful even in our shortcomings. Anyone who is among the living has hope –even a live dog is better off than a dead lion! Ecclesiastes 9:4
“2 I will worship toward thy holy temple, and praise thy name for thy loving-kindness and for thy truth: for thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name.
3 In the day when I cried thou answeredst me, and strengthenedst me with strength in my soul.
What happens when we worship God?
A lot of things happen when we worship God from the depth of our hearts;
When we pray, God sends His angels to bring answers, but when we praise or worship Him, He comes down to rescue us. When God takes over your battle, who is the devil that can stand God’s presence? Acts 16: 26
Worship is the key to God’s presence: Psalms 100: 1-2 the way to enter God’s presence is not by murmuring or complaining but, by the genuine worship of God. Psalms 100:2
Every wall of Jericho in our lives are destroyed- Joshua 6:20 “So the people shouted when the priests blew with the trumpets: and it came to pass, when the people heard the sound of the trumpet, and the people shouted with a great shout, that the wall fell down flat, so that the people went up into the city, every man straight before him, and they took the city; worship is a powerful tool to live a triumphant life
Why won’t I worship God? He daily loaded us with benefits; that means, there are gifts with my name and your name written on it every day.
19 Blessed be the Lord, who daily loadeth us with benefits, even the God of our salvation. Selah.
As you continue to worship Him in Spirit and Truth, may your eyes be opened to see how wondrously, He has been helping you. Whenever people ask you if you worship Him, just smile and answer “I do, worship the Lord.”
