Thank You because blessings that are bound, the miracles of sleeping and waking up, ability to move around and walk about to the glory of Your Name. You are faithful God. You are good and there is no none to be compared with You. Thank You and thank You and thank You again and again.
Beloved, what a blessed day ahead of us. The Spirit of God is here to help us as we pray and to intercede on our behalf, we are indeed blessed.
The topic before us is simple to awakening us that certain things is expected of us as we prepare for worship. In worship the Spirit of God is concern with the condition of our heart not just the physical appearance or the air condition environment nor the musical set that has been prepared to offer worship to God, as pleasant as all this may be they are have less value before God compared to the souls that are offering worship.
God made us in His image and He desires worship. God want to have fellowship with us but there is a condition. Meeting that condition is what guarantee the acceptance of our worship by a Holy God.
In His Word He said “ … who will worship Him must worship Him in truth and Spirit. Holy reverence is what God requires from His children.
Beloved, are you holy? Are you pure in heart and acts? As the prayer of a sinner is an abomination before God likewise his Praise and Worship.
So let us learn from what we study today that Holy God deserve Holy hand be lifted up and worship him in truth and in Spirit. Praise God!
How do you achieve that? Through from the precepts of the Lord. Through obedience to the every Word written in the Word of God. Through mediating on the Word of God. Through carefully to observe and do all that He has commanded you to do.
Beloved, that way you will delight God in your worship. God will be honoured and His Name alone be glorified in Jesus Name and if you are ready to do that then join me to discover more :
He will be like a refiner and purifier of silver; He will purify the sons of Levi and refine them like gold and silver. Then they will present offerings to the Lord in righteousness.—Malachi 3:3
The quality of our worship is not based on our activities but on our character. Churches can mistakenly assume that the better the music, the more impressive the building, and the more eloquent the preaching, the more worshipful the experience will be. Genuine worship, however, originates from within our hearts. If our relationship with God is not healthy, all these things are nothing more than religious pageantry.
The Levites were the worship leaders of their day. Their task was to offer sacrifices on behalf of the people. God declared that before they could worship Him in righteousness, He would first refine them with His refiner’s fire, purging them of any impurities. Merely being members of the religious profession, having official responsibilities in the temple, and going through the rituals of worship, did not guarantee that their religious activities would be acceptable to holy God.
Today, we tend to look to external things to enhance our worship. The true quality of our worship, however, rests within us. If we have not allowed God to purify us first, our worship will be void of His presence. If we do not have a pure heart, we may give offerings, but they will be unacceptable to God. Attending a religious service will not automatically ensure an encounter with God.
If you are not satisfied with the quality of your worship, don’t be too quick to blame your environment. Look first to your own heart. Allow God to refine your heart until it is pleasing to Him, and you will be free to worship God as He intends.
“I will meditate in Thy precepts.” Psalm 119:15
There are times when solitude is better than society, and silence is wiser than speech. We should be better Christians if we were more alone, waiting upon God, and gathering through meditation on His Word spiritual strength for labour in His service. We ought to muse upon the things of God, because we thus get the real nutriment out of them.
Truth is something like the cluster of the vine: if we would have wine from it, we must bruise it; we must press and squeeze it many times. The bruiser’s feet must come down joyfully upon the bunches, or else the juice will not flow; and they must well tread the grapes, or else much of the precious liquid will be wasted.
So we must, by meditation, tread the clusters of truth, if we would get the wine of consolation therefrom. Our bodies are not supported by merely taking food into the mouth, but the process which really supplies the muscle, and the nerve, and the sinew, and the bone, is the process of digestion. It is by digestion that the outward food becomes assimilated with the inner life.
Our souls are not nourished merely by listening awhile to this, and then to that, and then to the other part of divine truth. Hearing, reading, marking, and learning, all require inwardly digesting to complete their usefulness, and the inward digesting of the truth lies for the most part in meditating upon it.
Why is it that some Christians, although they hear many sermons, make but slow advances in the divine life? Because they neglect their closets, and do not thoughtfully meditate on God’s Word.
They love the wheat, but they do not grind it; they would have the corn, but they will not go forth into the fields to gather it; the fruit hangs upon the tree, but they will not pluck it; the water flows at their feet, but they will not stoop to drink it. From such folly deliver us, O Lord, and be this our resolve this day, “I will meditate in Thy precepts.”
Beloved, do you love the wheat then you must grind the grain to have it. do not neglect your closets, rather thoughtfully mediate on God’s Word and you will delight God with your worship when you lift up your Holy hands up to heaven.
Have a resounding blessed moment in God’s presence as you pray today and always. Learn to read and pray the Word as you pray. Praise God!
Father, hear Your children as they studies and pray your Word back to you in Jesus Name.
Remain ever blessed in the Lord.
