KEY SCRIPTURE: Mark 12:30, and thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment.
Every lover gives to the one he or she loves. Lovers of God give to God their worship. True worship is always an expression of our love for the Father. Lovers of God will always worship in spirit and truth John 4:24. Ministering to the Lord is an outward expression of our love for the father. It is not dry and dull, but rather emotional and passionate.
A good picture of this experience is how dogs behave when they encounter their master. These dogs, dance, fall to the ground, kiss the fingers of their master and truly adore them. You cannot give true worship if you do not sincerely love the father. Remember that the angels perpetually worship the Lord, singing Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord (Isaiah 6:3, Revelation 4:8).
God created us for His pleasure (Revelation 4:11). God delight that we worship Him out of the abundance of our love for Him. Note: God knows the true state of every heart. Some only pay lip service. This does no good to you.
God always responds to every sincere worship. God responded to Paul and Silas when they worshiped from the dungeon of the prison. Acts 16:25–31. King Jehoshaphat and His people were saved from their enemies because they worshiped the Lord in that moment of crises. 2 Chronicles 20:1-22.
Worshiping the Lord should be done at all times. In challenging times we must intensify our worship. The Lord is always excited to see his children worship Him in truth. Don’t turn to the difficult times and allow it to control you. Maintain your composure and keep blessing the Lord with your whole being. David was an outstanding winner in life because he was a true lover who expressed it in worship in his love for the Lord.
Win always by worshiping always.
How great you are O God, you live by yourself and does not need anyone to counsel you. Be magnified and exulted above the heaven. My soul will forever love you and extol you.
