Be in awe before his majesty. Be in awe before such power and might! Come worship wonderful Yahweh, arrayed in all his splendor, bowing in worship as he appears in the beauty of holiness. Give him the honor due his name. Worship him wearing the glory-garments of your holy, priestly calling!
Let’s define worship as follows:
1. reverent honor and homage paid to God or a sacred personage, or to any object regarded as sacred.
We have an Almighty God who is worthy to be worshiped. He is the Beginning and the End, He is the Lion of Judah, He is the Bright Morning Star, He is our King, He is The Banner Of Love over us, He is our Provider, He is our Refuge, He is our ever present Help, He is our Protector, He is our Refuge, He is the Lover of our Soul, He is our Waymaker, He is our Councilor, He is our Comforter, and much , much more. He is worthy .
We can’t say enough about our God who sent His only begotten Son to die for our sins and imperfections , so we can spend eternity with Him. He has amazing plans for us and is always for us and not against us. As the old saying goes” He paid a debt we could not pay and a debt He did not owe.” His ways are better than ours and His wisdom far outweighs that of the world.
I am stating these things because we gain the intimacy we need with God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit , when we worship. Worship brings His presence so it can be an atmosphere to learn and know these things, It is tangible and peaceful. Everything happens in worship. When we put Him first in our day, the day goes easier and puts us on a path of Life. There is nothing more awesome than hearing God speak to us and know He has everything worked out for our benefit. We have that peace that surpasses our own understanding in the face of circumstances that are breathing down our back.
You can worship anywhere. When you whisper His name or think about the conversation you had with Him this morning you are still in worship. When you acknowledge Him about the thing He solved for you or took care of, you are still worshiping Him. Worship contains being grateful and having a transparent heart. He knows your thoughts and all that you are made up from and of
In our hearts, on a daily basis we are barraged with information, good and bad. These things can keep us out of sync with our communication and worship. The negative is designed to crowd out or connection with God. It is good to keep our thoughts centered on Him. Worship helps us greatly in keeping the connection. It doesn’t mean we don’t have our own thoughts. It just means when we worship His presence enters in so we can have life running through us and not negativity.
Let’s define Honor. It is the same root word as Glory in Hebrew. The Hebrew word is kaw-bad. It means weighty, heavy, glorify, glorious and honorable. So when we honor Him, we are freely giving Him our respect and love to our God. We are making room for Him and receiving what He has to give us. We are glorifying Him by being obedient to His requests and ways. We are reflecting His character back to Him. We are created in His Image.
This next verse speaks of kaw-bad (glory) as wealth. The word is the picture of God’s character.
Genesis 13:2 NKJV – 2 Abram [was] very rich in livestock, in silver, and in gold. The word rich is the word kaw-bad.
I will leave it at this picture. Worship shows you who He is and who we are in Him. You can look up these verses and gain more understanding of worship.
