True Worshippers Don’t Have to Be Told to Worship God

The act of worship is expressed daily by every creation – nature, animals, the heavens, and mankind. This act that we do is praise.

Praising is very important, and learning about it has and will do wonders for your life. That is why we do it so much! We praise at ballgames, concerts and celebrities idols. We don’t have a problem with praising anyone or anything. However, when the scriptures tell us to praise God, like Hebrew 13:15, “By him [Jesus Christ] therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name,” we hesitate. Really?

Praising God is great. By faith, we believe therefore we act with thanksgiving and praise. Isn’t it wonderful for those of us who truly know about praise and worship? I think so. Praising has been the easy part. Why do I say this? Because everything does it, whether you know it or not! Remember the rock praising in your place, if you don’t.

“And he answered and said unto them, I tell you that, if these should hold their peace, the stones would immediately cry out.”

Luke 19:40 King James Version

This is in general, if you cannot praise God, you will never worship Him. When you become a follower of Christ, the Devil tricks you into believing that we don’t have to praise anymore. So you stop praising. Are you ashamed to offer praise to God? If you cannot praise the evil one, then you should not be praising God; especially not Jesus. Do you see that? That’s why he was kick out of heaven. Hoarding up worship for himself. If he can stop your praise, you will not be worshipping God Almighty neither.

Praise is a starting position by mouth. You have to know some words of understanding in order to practice this continual act of worship. If this is hard for you, my suggestion is go get a dictionary, your bible, and look-up positive attributes about God. You have to know some words with confidence.

“Get wisdom, get understanding: forget it not; neither decline from the words of my mouth.”

Proverbs 4:5 King James Version

In your praise to God, I have a quick song that I sing with my 3 years old grandsons to get you started today:

Lord, You are good God.

Lord, You are great God.

Lord, You are holy God.

Lord, You are _____ God.

I asked them to add something like, “wonderful” to complete the phrase to God. Please do not talk or sing about God, but directly address your love for Him. Also, please do not thank God for your many blessings either, like “I thank you for providing for me, or blessing me.” God is more than your personal spiritual ATM. He is Elohim, the all- existence mighty one. The source of all things. The only living God.

Get in the habit of praising God, at least 7 times a day according to Psalm 119:164. Here are some more word. along with the one you found, to try out for 23 days. After which, you will have a good intentions to continue offering a sacrifice of praise to God each day.

“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 King James Version

When you have the basic understanding about praise and worship, you can walk in God’s statutes. Oh yes, you can keep His judgments, and do them! Praising Him is for the True Worshippers. They don’t have a problem with giving God His due. True Worshippers know that praising God helps them to stay focus and endure this world’s sadness. In Christ, True Worshippers have joy, victory, holiness, grace, and mercy. The Holy Spirit continue to lead them in the path of righteousness for Christ Jesus’ name sake. To cling to Him, you need to worship only God.

True Worshippers have an excellent relationship with the Father God through Giving in Spirit and in Truth. Become a genuine worshipper, and know why you are doing it in the first place.

Glory to God!

Does Praise And Worship Music Save? Christian music has hampered individuals worship in spirit and in truth.

There are many Christians and Non-Christians alike believe that Music saves the soul. Is this true or not?

Before you answer this question. Honestly Think about It!

In today’s generation, we are told that our feelings will help us to be honest with ourselves and others. In those times of stress and despair, we seek music and their lyrics for hope instead of God who is the only source for hopelessness.

What do you do during this feeling? Do you do one of the following:

  1. Seek advice from people
  2. Play your favorite music
  3. Become unhinged by smoking or drinking
  4. Put other people down to make yourself feel better
  5. Pray to the Lord
  6. Go to Sleep and be depressed
  7. Praise the Lord
  8. Cry about the situation, and want others to feel sorry for you

When you run to hide, you can see yourself in one or more listed above. We have all moved by our feeling, but was it right to react that way? Listening to music will stimulate you to react in a positive or negative way. You, as a follower of Christ, should discern this world devices. Those devices are to turn you away from God towards a early death. That is the goal! To keep you in your feeling and not adjust your will to God’s plans and purposes for yourself.

Just because you are moved with a feeling or a belief, it could as well be an irrational one. Feeling are like the wind. They change to frequently. They deceive you, and cause to respond physically or mentally from your soul – mind, will, and emotions.

“A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is evil: for of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaketh.” – Luke 6:45

King James Version of the Holy Bible

Matthew 12:35 tells us of “A good man” who bring forth treasure. What comes out of you from your heart, mind, and soul. Musical Lyrics prophecy’s things to you, along with the sounds that illuminates and points to good things or evil things.

Spiritually speaking, we are preached to all the time. We choose to have beliefs base only by what has been exposed to us, until we have a personal encounter with the Lord Jesus Christ. The Old and New Testament announces His coming to this world. By Faith, we store this prophecy. Waiting patiently with endurance. In the meantime, we discovered the soul-ties to music. In the 60’s, praise and worship genre of music started to bind Christians to the feelings of worship, instead of exactly giving praise and worship towards God. Christian music has hampered individuals worship in spirit and in truth.

What are spiritual songs? An individual Believer in Christ singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord. They are your words, not others.

“Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.” – Colossians 3:16

King James Version of the Holy Bible

Contemporary Christian Music is not praise and worship. Ephesians 5:19 shares that we are to do an worshipful action from our good treasure. No worship leader in this world can get you to praise the Lord, if you do not have the conversion in Christ. Praise and worship is not music. They are two words to be used by every person; who daily give a sacrifice of praise to God. Through the belief in Christ, you will express your love for Him.

“By him [Christ Jesus] therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name.” – Hebrews 13:15

King James Version of Holy Bible

Now don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying that your action or belief is. Everything we do on this earth must be done by faith according to Romans 14:23. If not, we are still in sin, and our faith is in vain. Just because you like praise and worship music and felt the heartbeat of God through Christian Music, doesn’t mean it saves anyone. It will only mask your true symptoms. Your little or lack of true individual worship towards God. You have decided, like millions of others, to have someone else do it for you.

If you are a Babe in Christ, yes listen to Christian Music as a starting directive! If you have been following Christ Jesus more than 3 years, and have not changed in your offerings towards Him. You will believe that listen to music, praise dancing, and other godly like things are true acceptable worship. No my Brother and Sister in Christ, they are traditions of men! God is not in them, neither is the Holy Spirit. God is not liking that you have not genuinely giving praise to Him from your good treasure.

Every stolen Christian lyric and melody has not been or will ever be acceptable worship to God, neither will it save you from your sins. Just because you are singing and talking about God, Jesus, or the Holy Spirit doesn’t prompt you to worship. You must give your offering to God in order for Him to accept it from you. No other individual or thing can do this for you (see Cain’s Offering from Genesis Chapter 4).

Music is not worship. It is only a stimulus. To save your soul, you need to accept the Messiah, Jesus. He is the only way, the only truth, and the only light in this world. Without Him, you can never offer genuine worship. You will always need Contemporary Christian music to help you. Brake the Soul-Ties Today!

Devo Day 7: Recognizing God’s Voice Through Praise & Worship

Discerning God from Your Praise

“In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths..” – Proverbs 3:6

King James Version of the Bible (KJV)

According to John 10:1-5, Jesus is the Shepherd of His sheep, and everyone of them is familiar with His voice. A stranger’s voice they will not follow. By spending time praising and worshipping our Father God, and Jesus, our Lord and Savior, you will start to recognize His voice; becoming familiar with His voice.

Listen for God’s voice in everything you do, everywhere you go. Oh how, we need His help! Discerning the Lord’s voice, listening, and obeying Him, when there are so many voices in the world, you need to learn how to sharpen your spiritual antenna.

How did I learn that you ask? Through time spend with them; babies learned their parent’s voice from all other voices. It is the same with Heavenly Father. It’s by spending time in prayer, praising, and worshipping Him that you’ll learn His voice. Listen for an answered prayer. Acknowledge Him speaking through people, situations, or a billboard. God is speaking everyday looking for true acceptable worshippers; ones who will discern the difference between a stranger and our Lord.

Cling to the Lord, and He will cling back to you!

Hallelujah Glory to the Lord! You are free to hear from Him. Fear not only Believe.

All things are possible in Christ. Try listening for yourself, you just might like it!


Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.” – Psalm 46:10

Meditate on this scripture, and remember to “be still, and know that He is God”

You can hear from Him by just sitting quietly waiting patiently.
