Choose To Worship
Exalt the Lord our God and worship at His footstool
If worship is the utmost expression of who we are as believers, why
does it seem so difficult to fall at God's feet and genuinely adore
Him? Why is it easier to complain about life's problems rather than
voice our praises?
One reason is pride-we focus on ourselves rather than on our
wonderful Savior. Another is sin-we insist on meeting our needs
in our way instead of trusting the Lord. Yet these are the very issues
that cause us to feel weak, trapped, depressed, dirty, and forsaken.
But when you worship in humility, repentance, and obedience,
you find a deep, abiding, and life-giving freedom. You focus on
God and see His holy splendor, unlimited power, unfaltering wisdom
and unfathomably deep love for you. You encounter the joy of
forgiveness and realize His faithful care for all your needs.
Friend, do not allow your rebellious heart to lead you away
from God. Return to your heavenly Father today and worship Him
in sincerity, humility, and repentance. Enter into His wonderful
presence and experience the One you were created to enjoy.
Lord, I confess my sins and worship You in
humility and sincerity. You are God and
fully worthy of all my praise, amen.
