Enjoy Your Time in Praise and Worship
May the Lord Bless You As You Read and share these powerful songs, and may your praise and worship services to the Lord be filled with His presence in Jesus' Mighty Name! God bless you! May He fill you up with His presence to overflowing, and may He give you His peace. May these songs bring you inspiration and hope in knowing that the Living and True God is great and Mighty and like The Lord Jesus said, desires that you may worship Him in spirit and in truth.
21Jesus said to her, “Woman, believe Me, the hour is coming when you will neither on this mountain, nor in Jerusalem, worship the Father. 22You worship what you do not know; we know what we worship, for salvation is of the Jews. 23But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him. 24God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.” (John 4: 21-24)
The Lord Dwells in Our Praise
I remember, as a new disciple, I would spend hours upon hours in prayer and in praise and worship. As a pianist, I would sit at the piano and play songs from the hymnbook and sing to the Lord prophetically. It was an awesome time. It was during those times that I felt the presence of God very strongly. I don't know if you've had a similar experience, but praising and worshipping the Lord invites the presence of God where you are. Look at this scripture here:
3 But thou art holy, O thou that inhabitest the praises of Israel.
4 Our fathers trusted in thee: they trusted, and thou didst deliver them.
5 They cried unto thee, and were delivered: they trusted in thee, and were not confounded.
Did you see that? I highlighted it there just in case :)
Yes, God inhabits the praises of Israel, His people. So when you praise and specifically, praise from your heart, God will dwell there! Just like with Paul and Silas:
25 And at midnight Paul and Silas prayed, and sang praises unto God: and the prisoners heard them.
26 And suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken: and immediately all the doors were opened, and every one's bands were loosed.
27 And the keeper of the prison awaking out of his sleep, and seeing the prison doors open, he drew out his sword, and would have killed himself, supposing that the prisoners had been fled.
28 But Paul cried with a loud voice, saying, Do thyself no harm: for we are all here.
Did you see that? They prayed and praised and God showed up!
I know this isn't a teaching section of the site, but I pray that you've learned something very powerful about God - He loves when we honor Him with the sacrifice of praise, and with worship!
God is so good. He's been so good to you. I don't have to ask, because I know. It's Who He is.
I don't know about you but the goodness of the Lord is inspiring. Sometimes, I think about all that He's done for me and I get so excited to do more for Him through Him. Can you relate? The goodness of the Lord is very motivating.
It spurs me to worship Him. And that's what you'll find in these psalms. They are liturgical - they are filled with imagery about the public worship of God.
God desires to be worshipped. Remember The Lord Jesus Christ said this about worship.
Jesus said to her, “Woman, believe Me, the hour is coming when you will neither on this mountain, nor in Jerusalem, worship the Father. You worship what you do not know; we know what we worship, for salvation is of the Jews. But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshippers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him. God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.” (John 4:21-24)
It's not the building, and it's not the physical place - it's the posture of the heart.
You see, in these psalms, the Psalmist cries out to the Lord and expresses his adoration and praise of the Lord. Why because who He is spurs the Psalmist to worship. Now in the New Covenant, we as the Church, have access to an even greater measure, just as the scriptures share that we shall be changed as we behold Him; our worship transforms us.
But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord. (2 Corinthians 3:18)
