When you worship, don't be a drip....drip....drip. Instead, worship like a waterfall! (Pic - Iceland - courtesy of Pixabay)
Why is it important to learn to Worship?
1 – Maintain correct priorities – We have only one throne in our life. Only one person – God,
or I – can occupy it. Having Him on the throne of my life brings order to my life.
2 – My spiritual sensitivity is greatly heightened (my decision making becomes successful).
3 – Growth in my knowledge of The Father (so I can be more like Him).
4 – Worship is the intimacy of the spiritual life. It’s amazingly beautiful and produces ultimate satisfaction in this life!
5 – It grows my confidence (The wicked flees when no man pursues, but the righteous are as bold as a lion – Proverbs 28:1).
6 – My level of purity grows. Purity is one of the most important qualities in the christian life.
7 – I become highly accountable, leading to very healthy relationships.
Have you ever thought how in God’s environment – the space near Him – there is no lack? There is no chaos, no confusion, no fear, no dread, no insecurtiy………………..
So if that is True, why wouldn’t I want to daily find Him in worship, get in His Space, His Environment – escaping into His Presence to experience —– this invaluable peace!
Surely the closer that I get to Him, the less chaotic my inner person becomes……

Worship is a ‘fast track’ to The Heart of God, and of the several prayer forms (Confession, Petition, Intercession, Thanksgiving), stands alone. It stands alone this way – by nature, worship isn’t worship if it doesn’t have a heart of submission, and desire to perform only those things that gladden The Great Heart of our Heavenly Father. Other prayer forms can exist without these two qualities (I am not saying this is healthy, only saying that it’s possible)
Worship is key to enduring and overcoming in the life and death battle that we find ourselves in. Paul said in II Tim 3 that in the last days, perilous (dangerous) times will come. That people will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power.
We live in a critical time, and I believe that the worship leader holds keys that are unique – in our culture and in the Body of Christ. (Remember that in Old Testament times, it was not uncommon for the worshipers to lead the battle charge! See 2 Chronicles 20:21,22 ). satan and the demonic is doing all it can to hinder, obstruct, defame, and strip worship leaders of confidence and boldness. (By the way, my friend Al asked me why ‘satan’ isn’t capitalized [in the previous sentence]. I explained to him that this is not a typo – I NEVER capitalize his name!! Conversely, I always capitalize The Father’s Names, or adjectives!!)

Almost every day, I worship. But I have an admission to make – there are days that I do not worship. Why, you ask? It’s not because I am being lazy, but it’s because I begin to realize that I’m not IN AWE. What do I mean?
Well, let me ask you a question: What kind of quality can I expect my worship to have if I am NOT in awe of our Creator and Powerful Majestic Heavenly Father? Only when we are in awe of Him – really in awe – can we have a worship experience with depth.
So, look for “IN AWE” videos listed in my blog post area. These videos – you will find – will help you to become more in awe of God. View them to re-align your perception of God during the times that your worship quality begins to weaken – and experience deeper worship as you grow in awe of Him!
Then check out my other blog posts: Songs for Worship and Praise. Also, take a look at The Bible Says That? to see scriptures that you may not realize are in your bible. (Did you know, for example, that lucifer is a musician? Did you know that the Bible gives God’s dimensions? Did you know that hell wasn’t made for mankind, but instead was ‘enlarged’ to receive those who die in rebellion to God?).
