are you ready to worship?

Are we living our lives like we truly believe that God is our Lord and Master? Do we reverence Him and respect Him like He is so deserving of? Are there times that we are simply going through the motions but not really giving Him our whole heart and our full devotion?

It is easy to get caught up in the religiosity of our lives and not focus on the spirituality of our purpose here. We can just find ourselves going to church because "that's what we do" and not going because we have a deep and intense longing to be in the House of the Lord. 

If you find yourself in this place right now, it is not the end of the world. It's just time to get things right. Spend some much needed time in prayer. Some serious face-down, flat on the floor kind of prayer. Cry out to God and ask Him to forgive you for your negligence of His Holiness. Earnestly confess and repent. Then spend some time thanking Him for the many blessings He bestows on you daily! Begin to utter praises to His Name. Praise Him for who He is. Praise Him for His mighty Creation. Praise Him with all that you have within you. When you rise from the floor, you will be different. Purpose within yourself that it is time to be more passionate in your pursuit of God. Begin each day in a time of praise. God will move in your life and next Sunday, you will find yourself running to the church house ready to worship your King!

"Let every thing that hath breath praise the Lord.
Praise ye the Lord"
(Psalm 150:6)

Seeking Higher in all things of Him,
Beth

Come, now is the time to worship, come, today is the day of salvation.

Don't wait another moment.

Not responding to God when HE calls you, is a response, it is saying NO!

Are you saying no to God?
How many times have you said no?
Why?

Deny thyself, take up your cross and follow ME!

Very good. I read this week that if you don't worship before you get to worship on Sunday, you are not ready to worship. I've found that to be true.
