Building in God #4 What is Worship?

Prayer 3.jpg

Bob Pittman, a pastor in ND at a church we attended, used to pray every service “Help us Lord to honor you.” Today when I stepped into the church door, that’s what I prayed. That prayer struck me as a simple thing I can pray when I don’t FEEL like worshipping God.

When I have things i feel but shouldn’t say, When I’m hurting, when I am even a bit disappointed in how things are going right now……When I do not know exactly WHAT God is up to or why his answers seem to take so long…….

This is a prayer I can grab onto. “Help Me Father to Honor you.”¬†
It reminds me of B. Hinn who said he was called, but didn’t want to go and God told him to pray “Pray that you’ll be willing to be willing”

Sometimes the things God asks us to do seem staggering, or imposssible. Sometimes our friends or companions seems to make light of how hard the struggle is. Some days when you have taken many hits from “life in general” it’s a big effort to jut get out of bed, and keep doing the right thing. SOMETIMES we don’t know how to pray.

Some days we are just tired of having hope, and wonder if it would be better to give up, give in and wave the white flag at the devil and say Fine …….’just do me in” There are days I can’t even articulate how I feel-and I wish I DIDN”T HAVE FEELINGS!

But then, I”d be a robot. I would not feel love, or passion, or any of the wonderful things God wants me to feel. So in our grief, even in despair we can still Honor God with our Lips, and pray our heart comes in line with his. ‘Father, help me to Honor you”

It was the very best I could give today, and it led to exuburant an sincere Worship!!! thank you Father! thank you! you are my strength, you are my song. i will praise thee, all day long! And Worship? It’s telling God how much you love him! Right? Pretty simple¬†

A Harvest from the Lord……(His Promise to me)

“The Father says today, that the pouring out you have made to others is about to become a pouring in of My grace and recompense back to you. As you have seen people around you hurting and struggling, you longed to share your testimony. You knew that your testimony would make a difference because I am no respecter of persons. What I have done for you – you are well aware, I will do for others. Yet at times you found that the pearls of your testament of My faithfulness were cast before skeptical hearts that turned away and did not believe. Fret not. Your reward does not come because your words were received. Your reward comes because you had a heart for the needs of others and the courage to share who I am willing to be in their lives. “

 

“Keep pouring out. Give out of your heart those experiences and circumstances where I came through for you. Even those who don’t seem to hear will recall in their time of crises and will cash in on your testimony of My faithfulness.
They will cry out to Me and become as you are – one that knows the reality of who I AM and what I have done in the work of the cross for every shipwrecked life. Continue to walk in preparedness to speak. Be instant in season and out. Open your mouth even at times that it seems you are merely being brash. It isn’t men’s wisdom or knowledge that convinces. It is the witness of My Spirit. I will go with you in signs following and cause hardened hearts to be softened and lives changed because you made yourself available and chose to be obedient to My call.”
