Take COMMAND of Your Worship!

It should NEVER be a bore, a chore, or a bother to worship God… or to come to His house.

David wasn’t ashamed when he cried out in Psalm 100:4, “Enter His gates with THANKSGIVING… and into His courts with PRAISE; Give thanks to Him and praise His name!”

There should always be within us a sense of joy, a feeling of excitement, a knowledge of expectancy whenever we enter into the presence of God… be it in your daily time that you spend with him, be it when you go to the worship service at your church, wherever…. it doesn’t matter!

Because when we come into a real worship encounter with God… you’ve not just come to play games, or to take part in a weekly religious tradition, or to be seen by other people… you’ve come to meet the Creator of your body, the Author of your life, the Healer of your body, and the Savior of your soul.

Watch this:

Being in the marketing and advertising industry, I am trained to know how powerful the effect of our words are. The smoother I write my words, the more I can convince people to buy the products/services I promote… and the more money I make. On the flip side, if I write terribly, well… umm…. I eat Ramen Noodles and hot dogs for that week.

FACT: A good marketer can hypnotize you into such a deep trance with the words they write or say… that they can literally empty your pocket of all the cash you have… and clean your bank account out!

So you can see how surprised I was, when I read a church advertisement last weekend telling people to “Don’t stay home this Sunday… come to our church and give God his time for the week, you owe it to Him”

SAY WHAT!??

We should NEVER think of worshiping God as some type of community service that we are FORCED to do… because we were found guilty of some wrongdoing throughout the week.
God does not need our time… but we DO need His time!

Every morning that we wake up… we should literally COMMAND ourselves to worship God. Worship is defined as, “loving unquestioningly and excessively”. We should be glad and excited to be in his presence.

That same immediate feeling you get when you eat a bunch of chocolate candy bars… and wash it down with a big glass of red Kool-Aid… should be the same HIGH feeling you get when you worship God — except with the latter, you won’t have a “sugar crash”

Command yourself to worship the Lord, your God… every morning that He blesses you to have breath in your body, a roof over your head, and clothes on your back!

Until next time, be blessed… and walk in God’s abundance today!

  • It’s ads like that one that make me wonder “why bother going to church. I can do it better at home.”

    My family is committed to attending an organized service at least once a week, but it is not mandatory for our worship lives to be right. We pray as a family each night, we do bible study as a family in the morning, we listen to (and even dance to) praise and worship music as a family. Attending church is just one more opportunity to experience God.

    Church is a nice addition to our routine but I want my children to grow up praising God in all situations and at all times!

  • Amen to that Kathryn! I really received that… and was encouraged by the fact that you & your family go “beyond the call of duty” of JUST attending service once a week… and make it a point & lifestyle to worship God… and bible study each and everyday.

    Kudos to you sister!
