Worship the Lord in Spirit and in Truth

The Lord is calling us to worship him in Spirit and in truth. If we worship the Lord, we will not put anything in his place.

No longer do we have to go to a special place to worship God as the Israelites did. We have God’s Spirit within us so that we can worship God anywhere we go. This is important for when we are in a place where we cannot get to a place of worship or to music to accompany our worship. We can just worship the Father where we are, (John 4:23,24).

Praising God is good for those who are upright and it brings joy to the heart. When we worship the Lord, we have victory over our enemies. For anyone who is suffering with mourning and gladness, the Lord will lift us up when w praise him. He turns our mourning and gladness into joy.

Praise will confuse the enemy. When we are facing an evil spirit we can praise God and the enemy will flee from us. Many of the problems that we have with not getting our needs met, not getting jobs, or losing our homes can be solved through praise and worship. The enemy cannot handle God’s love. It will defeat him.

Praise and worship are the cure for idolatry. Some of the people around the world have become an idolatrous country. Idolaters worship anything but God. They find solutions to their problems with the things of this world, which they feel give them relief from their problems. But, what they do not understand is that these things only give them temporary relief. God gives us a permanent solution to our feelings of loneliness, or rejection, of persecution, of sorrow, when we turn to him. We have so much for which to be thankful.

Perhaps, this is the reason why only some of us have been blessed with wealth. The more we get, the more we have to praise and worship God. God will bless us with wealth in proportion to our degree of praise and worship. Perhaps this is the reason why God will bless us with harmonious relationships, beautiful surroundings, obedient children, and the best seat in the house because of our degree of worship.

Let’s make a commitment right now to offer more praise and worship to God this new year. Let’s see how our problems will be saved.

  1. The Bible tells us to flee from sin, but we are told time and time again that we have been given authority over the enemy.
