Our Heavenly Father is seeking those who worship Him in spirit and in truth. The idea of God finding us the moment we worship Him, leads us to worship Him even more. With our heart turned towards Him and our hands lifted up, we embrace Him through our words, tears and expressions of love. We stand in awe as we meet God face-to-face and rejoice in His presence.
We rejoice in worshiping Abba Father and giving Him glory and honor because of who He is. A lesser known benefit of worshiping is that satan is publicly rebuked and reprimanded during our praise. Our adversary was cast out of the place of worship even though he used to be the praise leader in heaven. When we do what he is no longer able to do, he is resisted and has to flee from every area of our lives. It is imperative that when we feel the most oppressed, attacked or in warfare that we rise up and worship. In doing so we get closer to what is of God, and further away from what is of the enemy. In that place of intimacy nothing can come between us and the awesomeness of God’s glory.
If we ever need to feel closer to God, let’s worship. When depression tries to come upon us, let’s worship. When darkness increases in the world around us, let’s worship. When we don’t know what to do, let’s worship. No matter what it takes or where we are, we press through to worship, from glory to glory!
John 4:23-24 But 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. God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.
