Wednesday, May 29, 2013
We get a lot of good feelings in life. We can reminisce about the memories and experiences in our past with others and enjoy looking back. However, there is a present feeling we can have today. It is the best feeling we could ever possibly have that no person or no material thing could ever give us. That good feeling is praising God above all other people and things. Let’s be sure our focus is on Him and not the good feelings from the things of the world. He is our God and worthy of our praise. Our good feelings can be great when we focus on Him.
1 Chronicles 16:25 “Great is the LORD! He is most worthy of praise! He is to be feared above all gods.” (NLT)
Dear Lord, You are great. You are worthy. You are to be feared. You have the ability to do mighty things for those who love and worship and for those who turn away from You and forget You. We want to worship You today and every day. Allow Your Holy Spirit to work through us today so we are worshiping You in all we do, reminiscing about what You have done for us and sharing with others. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
Talking about old times with others is a good way to remember good times. Sharing what God has done for us in those times is a good way to honor Him.
When we think back to a particular time in life and remember how great things were, let’s not forget how great things could be right now if we were to put God first in our lives.
God is worthy of our praise and worship. Anything we praise or worship other than Him is not worthy and is a waste of time.
Praise and worship is not just for one day a week. Let’s spend some time with God today.
We can’t worship God properly if we don’t allow His Holy Spirit to work through us.
John 4:24 “For God is Spirit, so those who worship him must worship in spirit and in truth.” (NLT)
