How Did You Feel?
“Let everything that has breath praise the Lord…” Psalm 150:6
What does it mean to worship? You may have asked yourself this before. A lot of people almost immediately associate “worship” with songs and a message all grouped together in a service of some sort during the week. We tend to come up short, though, when we put worship in a box, reserved for Sundays and Wednesdays only.
Let us ask you a few questions,
Have you ever witnessed God move through you? Move through others?
Has God ever delivered you from rock bottom?
Has God ever shown himself to you through small victories in your life?
If you’ve answered yes to any of these questions, how did it make you feel? How did you feel when you stood at the top of the mountain you were climbing for a lifetime? How did it feel when you were able to celebrate a small victory WITH the Lord. How did you feel when you realized you’ve surrounded yourself with people that are constantly, intentionally building you up and speaking life into you? How did you feel?
You see, friends, worship is not only something that you do, but it is also something that happens within you, it’s something that you feel. The worship occurring within you is what then provokes the reaction of worship through praises, fellowship, meditation, and so much more.
So let us ask you again,
Have you ever witnessed God move through you? Move through others? If so, great, celebrate that, worship through that.
Has God ever delivered you from rock bottom? If so, great, celebrate that, worship through that.
Has God ever shown himself to you through small victories in your life? If so, great, celebrate that, worship through that.
There is no one certain, correct way to worship. It looks different for everyone, and everyone expresses themselves in a different way. Believe it or not, God is working through you, in you, and for you, and when we come to that realization, how could we not worship him, how could we not thank him, how could we not give one hundred percent of ourselves back to him, just as He did for us.
