The battle against worship is constant. Our insecurities, other people, or even surroundings may hinder our worship. Thoughts of inadequacy, unworthiness or inferiority may be added to a long list of other obstacles. As we draw nearer to God through our worship, we press through all obstacles.
One of the greatest blessings of the new covenant is our freedom to worship the Lord in spirit and in truth. True worship is not measured by outward gestures or behaviors, but by an inward genuine love for God. God doesn’t look at the outward appearance; God looks at the heart. The how matters internally, not externally. We must worship with a true heart in honesty and humility. We cannot worship with others publicly on a Sunday, and not worship privately other days of the week. We express our love and adoration to the Lord in the midst of our daily activities because our heart is devoted to Him.
We can come to God in spite of our faults and limitations. When our heart really longs for His presence, the Spirit of God enables us to surmount all obstacles. We love Him in response to His great love for us. He is the strongest when we are the weakest. We worship Him with our heart regardless of what our head says, and our adoration increases, from glory to glory!
Hebrews 10:22 “…let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water.”
