Did I awake you? Is your spirit stirred to praise the Lord today?
Let’s try it again, Hallelujah!
You are not ready, I said something to you. Are you ready?
The Lord is good and His mercy endures forever. Show God that you love Him, and appreciate all the things He has done for you. How do you do that? HMMM, YOU PRAISE HIM!
You have 6 seconds to get excited about your Heavenly Daddy. If you cannot, what about your Lord and Savior Jesus Christ? The Father takes pleasure in you worshipping Him.
I believe that is more than 6 seconds:
Great is the Lord and Greatly to be Praise!
There is no one like our God, no one like our King!
Honor and Glory belong to Him; I take this time to show Him that I care. You show me as well.
He is the best Daddy in the universe…you will never find another. I hope you are think of purchasing something for your natural Father on this Father’s Day 2016. We go all out for our Moms on Mother’s Day, but the same time and efforted should be given to the Dads as well. They are our strength and safely – it’s the way we feel when we are near them. Their presence of silence and comfort brings us joy. I appreciate every Dad out there, and thank the Heavenly Father for you! Happy Father’s Day!

Did you enjoy this song of hope? You are never alone. You are on his mind all of the time: “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end. (Jeremiah 29:11)” Do you believe that? I really do, hope you do.
Wednesday, I left you with some thinking to do. Did you answer the questions about your worship of God? How did you do? I would love to hear about it by leaving a comment of praise or by contacting me.
Praise and Worshipping God is a top priority in every Christian’s life. You cannot escape from it. That’s who you are, and that’s what you will be doing throughout eternity. Isn’t that exciting? Praising and Worshipping God forever and forever! Hallelujah! It’s exciting to me. No more worries…No more pain…just learning the Kingdom’s way. My Heavenly Father has everything covered. Glory! I will be a child in my Father’s eyes.
Can you see that?
Fellowshipping with the Lord in the cool of the day! Can you picture yourself there (in the Garden of Eden); worshipping without doubts or hesitation? A true worshipper!
Psalm 24:3-6 gives a very significant definition of a true acceptable worshipper: “Who shall ascend into the hill of the LORD? or who shall stand in his holy place?[‘Who will He accept?’] 4He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully. 5He shall receive the blessing from the LORD, and righteousness from the God of his salvation. 6This is the generation of them that seek him that seek thy face, O Jacob. Selah.”
Those who are acceptable, true worshippers are the ones who have “clean hands” (‘they are obedient to God, purified, and made clean’), a “pure heart” (‘their motives and desires are right’) and who truly “seek Him”.
Why? Because this is the goal of salvation; to produce acceptable true worshippers. If you’re truly saved, you’re a true acceptable worshipper. Therefore, as you examine your worship, you’re also examining your salvation. Do you know why the Father sent the Son into the world? “To seek and to save that which was lost (Luke 19:10).” So why did God make this provision? “For the Father seeketh such to worship Him (John 4:23).” Are you getting the picture? You and I were redeemed, so we can worship Him. That’s it, that’s the bottom-line.
God wants to have a relationship with His created beings. He created man to worship Him. There are many accounts to support this fact in the Word. I will only share three at this time. Here they are:
Matthew 8:1-2 – “When he was come down from the mountain, great multitudes followed him. 2And, behold, there came a leper and worshipped him, saying, Lord, if thou wilt, thou canst make me clean.”
Do you see? The leper knew who Jesus was, so he responded in worship.
Matthew 15:25 – “Then came she (a woman of Canaan) and worshipped him, saying, Lord, help me.”
She heard about Jesus, and believed that Jesus was who He said He was: her response was to worship. There are many times we need Jesus to help us. What do we do? Try to take care of things ourselves, but Jesus said to give our cares to Him (Matthew 11:28), just like this woman of Canaan.
John 9:31-39 – “Now we know that God heareth not sinners: but if any man be a worshipper of God, and doeth his will, him he heareth. 32Since the world began was it not heard that any man opened the eyes of one that was born blind. 33If this man were not of God, he could do nothing. 34They answered and said unto him, Thou wast altogether born in sins, and dost thou teach us? And they cast him out. 35Jesus heard that they had cast him (a man who was blind from birth, and Jesus healed him (v.1)) out; and when he had found him, he said unto him, Dost thou believe on the Son of God? 36He answered and said, Who is he, Lord, that I might believe on him? 37And Jesus said unto him, Thou hast both seen him, and it is he that talketh with thee. 38And he said, Lord, I believe. And he worshipped him. 39And Jesus said, For judgment I am come into this world, that they which see not might see; and that they which see might be made blind.”
I would like for you to get this picture in its fullness, let’s read it in the Message Bible:
30-33. The man replied, “This is amazing! You claim to know nothing about him, but the fact is, he opened my eyes! It’s well known that God isn’t at the beck and call of sinners, but listens carefully to anyone who lives in reverence and does his will. That someone opened the eyes of a man born blind has never been heard of—ever. If this man didn’t come from God, he wouldn’t be able to do anything.” 34They said, “You’re nothing but dirt! How dare you take that tone with us!” Then they threw him out in the street. 35Jesus heard that they had thrown him out, and went and found him. He asked him, “Do you believe in the Son of Man?” 36The man said, “Point him out to me, sir, so that I can believe in him.” 37Jesus said, “You’re looking right at him. Don’t you recognize my voice?” 38″Master, I believe,” the man said, and worshiped him. 39Jesus then said, “I came into the world to bring everything into the clear light of day, making all the distinctions clear, so that those who have never seen will see, and those who have made a great pretense of seeing will be exposed as blind.”
Did you get the big picture? Jesus healed a man who was born blind. When questioned by the Pharisees about Jesus, he said in v.31, “It’s well known that God isn’t at the beck and call of sinners, but listens carefully to anyone who live in reverence and does his will – that’s worship (see KJV).” This man makes an interesting contrast and says that there are only two kinds of people – those God hears, and those He doesn’t hear. The people He doesn’t hear are sinners, and the people He hears are worshippers. So the contrast is between sinners and worshippers. In fact, the world can be divided into “the sinners; those who do not worship God” and the “worshippers; those who love to worship there Heavenly Daddy.” Therefore, to be saved means to be a worshipper of the true and living God.
Are you starting to get the big picture?
Until next time, continue to be blessed and Praise the Lord!
PS. Happy Father’s Day to All of the Wonder Dads in the World. Please reflect and learn from your Heavenly Father, so you may be an excellent Father here on earth to your child(ren) with Love.
