It’s Not A Religious Thing – Rhapsody Of Realities TeeVo Devotional April 4th

(True Worship Is Beyond Form Or Ritual)

TO THE BIBLE: 1 Chronicles 29:11 AMPC
“Yours, O Lord, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the victory and the majesty, for all that is in the heavens and the earth is Yours; Yours is the kingdom, O Lord, and Yours it is to be exalted as Head over all.”

Some people just don’t get what worship really means, and so they miss out on its blessings and benefits. Worship is the recognition and appreciation of the goodness, blessings, kindness, and righteousness of God.

It is the appreciation and recognition of His character and, therefore, the confession of His character. Hence, true praise is worship.

When, for instance, you give thanks to God and say, “Lord, you’re good; you’re kind; you’ve blessed me; you’re righteous,” you’re defining, recognising, appreciating, and promoting the character of God.

The Lord appreciates that because it shows who He is in your life; it separates or distinguishes Him from everyone and everything else.

And you know what’s even cooler? When you thank Him for His goodness, provision, blessings, and all the wonderful things He’s done in your life, you’re saying, “Oh Lord, I know it’s you who did all these things.”

You’re attributing those beautiful works to Him, and the necessary result is that He’ll do more for you and reveal Himself to you in a greater way.

Worship always brings a greater revelation of God. This is why we worship only God and not men, angels, or any other creation.

How important worship is! It should be for you something beyond a form or ritual. It should be a time of true recognition, perception and a real encounter with who God is.

Revelation 21:22; Psalm 96:9-10; John 4:24

Dear Father, I lift my hands in worship and offer to you sacrifice of praise and thanksgiving from my spirit. I adore you Lord, for you alone are God, the everlasting King of glory, the only wise and true God, gracious and kind, holy and righteous, ever loving and forgiving. Thank you for the blessing of the New Testament in Christ Jesus. Hallelujah!

Spend an hour worshipping the Lord by yourself. Don’t ask Him for anything, just worship Him.
