I want you to know that your tears tell a story. The word says; “You have taken account of my wanderings; Put my tears in Your bottle. Are they not in Your book”? Psalm 56v8
/ˈwəːʃɪp/ – the feeling or expression of reverence and adoration for a deity.
John Piper’s definition of worship is: “The inner essence of worship is to know God truly and then respond from the heart to that knowledge by valuing God, treasuring God, prizing God, enjoying God, being satisfied with God above all earthly things. And then that deep, restful, joyful satisfaction in God overflows in demonstrable acts of praise from the lips and demonstrable acts of love in serving others for the sake of Christ.”
Your most intimate moments in the spirit will be when you are in worship. When all your attention, your whole being is in tune with the spirit of God, where His presence is so tangible you will get goosebumps that sometimes you may need to open one eye to just make sure that you are still sitting in the lounge and not actually floating around somewhere.
How amazing it will be to be alive at such a time.
How beautiful it will be to have everyone come together in prayer and in worship and bring all the tears, all the joy, the anger, disappointment, and fears to the cross.
You will go through very tough times, where you will be reminded of your failures that will probably lead you to make more failures and bad decisions but remember He is with you always.
Remember that your tears tell a story only He can read. “Those who sow in tears shall reap with shouts of joy!” – Psalm 126v5
Worship will bring back perspective, worshipping from the deepest place of your spirit, and He will give you the deepest place of His love. You will learn that the angels listen to your songs and voice because your song of praise awakens the worship of angels.
You need to learn to still your heart from Him because the revival of awakened hearts comes through praise. You need to find the secret power that is released when you bring high praises to the throne!
You will be chosen for such a time as this, learn the secret of intimate worship;
“God, You alone are King of my heart. My Hero, my Helper, my Confidant, my Friend. You are the great and Only Lover of my soul. My Solace, my Listener, my Amazing one. Protector, Provider, Supreme Sacrificer, Source of life and love and all good gifts. You are the River that runs through me, the Rock of Ages beneath me, the God of Glory above me, the Spirit of Life within me.
My heart beats for You. Yours is the love that I lean on. Yours is the hand that I reach for. Yours is the breast my tears find their way to. You are Counselor, Comforter, Captain of all my ways. You are the Searcher of my heart, Keeper of my secrets, the Giver of my dreams. You are all the wonder that is love to me – my most intimate companion, Dweller in the deepest part of me.
We walk together now and through all eternity – Father & daughter, King & princess, Saviour & saint, Heaven & earth. May the most natural conversation of my day be prayer as I activate the power of heaven!”
