God has planted his people like strong and graceful oaks for his own glory. Isaiah 61:3
The Lord is pleased only with those who worship him and trust his love. Psalm147: 11
Because of his love God had already decided that through Jesus Christ he would make us his children-this was his pleasure and purpose. Ephesians 1:5
Go to the Lord for help; and worship him continually. Psalm 105:4
Praise God from sunrise to sunset. Psalm 113:3
Take your everyday, ordinary life-your sleeping, eating, going to work, walking-around life-and place it before God as an offering. Romans 12:1
The moment you were born into the world, God was there as an unseen witness, smiling at your birth. Bringing pleasure to God is called “worship.” God wants passion and commitment in our worship. Every activity can be transformed into an act of worship when you do it for the praise, glory, and pleasure of God.
Christa writes: As a person who dwelled in ingratitude for decades concerning my life and lived in the bondage of entitlement. When I was released from this prison, the sense of freedom and joy was so exhilarating - that the moments and days were spent in worshiping and devouring, and putting forth praise to God for my deliverance. That is when my love, everything became a BLESSING! Everything he had delivered to me in my life had became an opportunity to rest and rely on him if it was too immense and too large for me to cope or deal with. This was a segment in your profile that really caught my eye, along with the scripture up above about God smiling at our birth; I knew right then and there, that you knew in your walk, that this had been shown to you. The absolute Blessing that came from this transformation of my release, besides JOY, and Peace, and a Deeper relationship with God and a fulfillment beyond my wildest dreams; My voice, I reconnected back with my singing voice. I had sung and was quite involved with the theater, danced ballet for 10 years, sung for 12 years, played the piano for 13 years and JUST THREW IT DOWN THE TOILET, when I found, BOOZE,MEN and MONEY! But now in my worship, I’m singing like a song bird on the wings of God’s Glory. And it is Like I have never sang before, fresh, exhilarating and just so…………..WONDERFUL! It brings me such joy to sing and sing in worship for Him and his Son. My life is all about Praise and Worship in everything I do. God is so Great, as he stretches me, continues to mold, refine and love me as I seek out his Righeousness, Holiness, and become Sanctified in the Holy Spirit to claim my Redemption. I know I’m just a beginner, but I learn fast and when I remain open and completely surrendered and broken, God can do great things through me, he already has! I love you Angel, hope you were filled with Praise and Worship today!!!!!!!!!
