The Exchange of Worship

OCTOBER 11

Made with Repix (http://repix.it)

We are created to worship.

We are created for worship.

Worship is an exchange BETWEEN:

God’s heart and my own.

When we worship God, a connection with God is created where He begins to share desires and thoughts and dreams with our own hearts. He already understands our hearts but now, in worship, I begin to see into God’s heart and begin to understand His motives and intentions for my life. God enjoys this time we spend together because there are no barriers, just our hearts connecting and communicating in a manner that must mystify the angels. God is able to fill you up when that connection is made and that connection happens when we worship.

What’s the need… in my heart? In my soul? In my life? And am I confusing my desires for a better life with God’s desires for a transformed life? What does God say to you when you intentionally set aside your own desires, needs and grievances to just pour out your soul in worship to Him? He will participate and He will let slip some part of His inner nature to you. There will be mending and healing and renewal… but there will be things He will impart to your heart in worship because He won’t be able to help Himself… the connection is that strong. When we approach Him in worship with an open and receiving heart, He will answer our hearts and reveal every desire that He has for us.

Today’s Scripture:

John 4:21-24

19 The woman said to him, “Sir, I perceive that you are a prophet.

20 Our fathers worshiped on this mountain, but you say that in Jerusalem is the place where people ought to worship.”

21 Jesus said to her, “Woman, believe me, the hour is coming when neither on this mountain nor in Jerusalem will you worship the Father.

22 You worship what you do not know; we worship what we know, for salvation is from the Jews.

23 But the hour is coming, and is now here, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for the Father is seeking such people to worship him.

24 God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth.”
