Greeting my dearly beloved brothers and sisters. The topic today is “Worshiping God.” You will find such, Amazing Grace Revelations on pages 31-32 of my book of spiritual upliftment “Sincerely Speaking Spiritually,” which reflect brilliantly on this topic. Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines worship as: showing honor or reverence for a divine being or supernatural power; to regard with great and extravagant respect, honor, or devotion; a form of religious practice with its creed and rituals. Naturally, worship is the act of attributing reverent honor and homage to God. We bow down to Him as God and King. Certainly, the above definitions are a part of Worshiping God, which we ought to do on a daily basis in spirit and truth!
Hebrew 12:28 states, “Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us be thankful, and worship God acceptably with reverence and awe.” Accordingly, we must worship God in praise and in truth, recognizing His supremacy, His humanity, and His humility. The Apostle Paul states, “Present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God which is your spiritual worship” (Romans 12: 1). As a result, worshiping God strengthen our relationship with Him in spirit and in truth by knowing Him greatly. Ephesians 3:18 states, “May you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep His love is.” This wisdom and knowledge only come from worshiping Him and no other way by His grace and mercy. The poem and picture uplifting “God’s Glory” on page 45 of this reverential book of poetic grace “Sincerely Speaking Spiritually” reflect on “Worshiping God” gracefully in spirt and truth!
We worship God in faith, spirit, and truth with our daily prayers unto Him by thanksgiving which strengthens our relationship with Him. The prophet Isaiah visited King Hezekiah in 2 Kings 20:1-6 and gave him a message from God, “Place your house in order because you will die.” Hezekiah who was near death from his illness, faced the wall, wept sorely, and raised his voice unto God spiritually with faithfulness in prayer, praise, worship and truth. As a result, God extended his life for another fifteen years. Naturally, one has to give thanks unto God for His blessings. The Prayer of Thanksgiving on pages 61-62 of my Modern Era Book of Psalms, “Sincerely Speaking Spiritually,” as stated by reviewers is emblematic of such worship and thanksgiving to God for His sustaining of life in spirit and truth!
Jehoshaphat and his people were facing sure destruction from their enemies. They prayed faithfully in spirit and truth unto God for deliverance. He bowed down on the earth and prayed, spiritually and faithfully unto God in the middle of his assembled people. They rendered songs, praise, worship, and prayers. They were delivered and enemies destroyed (2 Chronicles 20:1-34). God is there to strengthen His relationship with you. He affirms fellowship, accepts prayers and worship, uplift your faith, and grants petitions rendered. The poem “If We Must Die” on pages 1-2, of this devoit text of respect to God, “Sincerely Speaking Spiritually,” reflects such blessings from God in sustaining our lives to behold a new day of His victorious grace and blessings in our lives with spirit and truth!
My dearly beloved brothers and sisters, today is the day to worship and acknowledge Him prayerfully, spiritually, and truthfully. You may rise up, lay down, face the wall, kneel down, or bow down, whichever is your choice. You may raise your heads and hands to heaven, or keep them lowered with a bowed head. You may sing and pray with a loud voice or do it silently, walk around or stand still; however, do it faithfully, spiritually, prayerfully, willingly, truthfully, and humbly in His sight. Remember, He know, what’s on our tongues and in our hearts before even rendering the first word unto Him (Matthew 6:8 and Psalm 139:1-4).
Be encouraged, inspired, ingenious, resilient, wear His full armor, and be blessed always, by worshiping Him gloriously in spirit and in truth.
One great favor to ask, please leave an inspirational review for my book “Sincerely Speaking Spiritually” on the site. That will ve very uplifing and greatly sppreciated. Thank you very much, have an awesome day, don’t forget to pray, stay encouraged, inspired, ingenious, resilient, mindful, enlightened, and God’s blessings always!
