Come with me as you step your mind on the presence of the Lord. Watch this praise song by Misty Edwards called “Always on My Mind:”
I’m His Love, Lord God I feel your presence!
Glory! Crying in my heart to you Lord, I sense you.
I’m completely in your Love.
You think about me Lord, I have peace.
I don’t know how to come out of the presence of God, right now. It’s wonderful…loving…adoring!
Get Ready? Receive from God.
Lord God, I ask for holy boldness to do your will on the earth. I know that I’m on your mind, as I am willing to praise and worship you to stay in your presence. Oh yes, Lord! I trust that you are ordering my steps in the mighty name of Jesus Christ.
Did you sense the Lord? He is daily looking for you to praise Him. I know that He is with me as I was typing this blog post. I’m still trying to see how to introduce the important of praise and worship in any assembly. Glory! Thank you Lord.
But I am poor and needy; yet the Lord thinketh upon me: thou art my help and my deliverer; make no tarrying, O my God.
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.
Praise and Worship is Top Priority!
God is looking for true acceptable worshippers of Him. Why? Because He is always thinking about you! He wants you to have a peaceful life that gives you an expected end. Right!
What I’m about to write is a Selah moment [for you to think about it only], and I know that I will not receive any comments for this one, and that’s OK!
If you have been with me in this study of praise and worship since March of this year 2016, I have given you some helpful insight into what God is expecting from the Body of Christ; to worship in spirit and in truth (John 4:24)?
Now, I would like for you to evaluate your experience from your local assembly service, and I want you to analyze how the music in a recent worship service accomplished its purpose. Did it help the congregation to ascend to the presence of God? Did the Holy Spirit move in the midst of the congregation? Did the glory come and take up residence? Did the congregation respond in love and appreciation? Were the songs that were sung in-line with the sermon for that day? Did the music and sermon speak as one? Did the songs bring you the truth of God’s Word? Did you sense advancement in praise, like an army into battle? Winning important Victories in the spiritual realm, as you worship God?
It is vital to our worship experience that the songs that are chosen are expressions of God’s heart for that particular service and are songs that are easy to be followed by the congregation. The focus should always be on Jesus and not on trying to sing the right words, and therefore complicated, performance oriented songs can be a distraction in congregational worship. We need music that will help us to easily express our hearts to the Lord God!
Can you recognize what types of songs are being sung at your church, and are you able to really connect with God while singing those songs? Prayerfully consider this, allow the Holy Spirit to speak to your heart the answers to these questions and how best to share your knowledge with the Body of Christ. We are busy doing too many things of too little importance and spending too little time doing the things of utmost importance such as the praise and worship of Elohim (God)!
That is the reason for gathering together for worship service! To testify, make public our faith, and to share the knowledge we know with the Body of Christ. We must do our part to prepare the Body for the Bridegroom, Jesus Christ!
If Satan can keep us from worshipping God acceptably, then we lose for sure. But…praise God for that word “but”! All who hunger and thirst after righteousness shall be filled! Hallelujah!
If you do not learn anything from this blog, know this, you will learn about praise and worship in heaven. Everyone praises and worships God there!
Until next time, continue to be blessed and Praise the Lord!
