Topic: Understanding True Worship [Seeds of Destiny 30 August 2019 Devotional]
True worship is a heart chase after God. It is the pursuit of God, a state of continual longing for God. True worshippers are God chasers. In this world, everyone is chasing one thing or the other; there are those chasing after money, women, men, fame, accomplishments, etc., but true worshippers are chasers of God.
SCRIPTURE: But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. John 4:23
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: True worshippers are God chasers.
The scripture confirms in Isaiah 43:21 and Psalms 150:6 that the main purpose of our existence is to worship and praise God. And from our anchor scripture, it is confirmed that true worship is what the Father wants from us, implying that there is also false worship. So, this places a demand on us to understand what true worship is all about.
Now, what is true worship? We are looking at three definitions of true worship today.
1. True worship is a heart chase after God. It is the pursuit of God, a state of continual longing for God. True worshippers are God chasers. In this world, everyone is chasing one thing or the other; there are those chasing after money, women, men, fame, accomplishments, etc., but true worshippers are chasers of God.
2. True worship is the submission and surrender of life to God. Submission and surrender to God implies giving God the final say in all things in your life; it is refusing to be seen or heard but allowing God to be seen and heard through you.
3. True worship is being open to God. We have so many people on earth today whose lives are not real. There are those who even try to cover up themselves in the Presence of God, but true worship is being open to God in utmost sincerity.
Beloved, true worship is beyond singing, dancing or lifting up hands in church; it is a chase after God, total surrender to Him and being open to Him. As you yield yourself to true worship, I see God overwhelming you with His glory, in Jesus’ Name.
Remember this: True worshippers are God chasers.
- Live a lifestyle of praise and worship.
- Let your life be a reflection of true worship.
