How to Experience True Worship

Worship must be a lifestyle and everyone can experience it. It will easily be a part of your every day routine when you remember these four things.

1.Commit Your Life to Jesus Christ

The life of praise begins here, with the confession of your mouth that "Jesus is Lord." This is daily. You must profess that Jesus is Lord of your life. "If you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you shall be saved" - Romans 10:9

2.Confess Sin and Repent
Sin, including prideful self-reliance, separates us from God and from His love and protection.

 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. - John 1:9

3.Praise God Anyway

Despite your present feelings, it is important to offer praise to God, what Hebrews 13:15 calls a “sacrifice" of praise. Despite our feelings or circumstances, God often asks us to take the first step, especially when He is trying to help us grow in our faith. This means that many times it will not be easy. Even David had to command himself to worship. Through Jesus, therefore, let us continually offer to God a sacrifice of praise--the fruit of lips that openly profess his name. - Hebrews 13:15

4.Join Together With Other Believers

Sharing your struggles with another brother or sister in Christ is not only a good idea (Ecclesiastes. 4:9-10), it is commanded (James 5:16). Uniting with other believers in regular worship is also a key to being able to praise God. "And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching. - Hebrews 10:24-25

I believe that as we pursue God that He will take delight in us and open His windows of mercy over us. He will show us more of Him as we dig deeper into our relationship with Him. Imagine if we as a people learned to accept our place in worshipping Christ. When we line up with our destiny we will see signs, miracles, and wonders... That is His promise and I choose to believe! Be Encouraged!
