It’s Larissa here and I am going to talk about how to worship God. It’s something that maybe I just kinda expect people to automatically know. But not everybody really knows to worship God without a song that’s known or without a format in a way. I just believe that it’s not a formula, but there are some basic principles that we can learn. because learned a lot of stuff by trial and error. One thing I’ve realized is that the most important thing with worship is your heart seeking after God. It’s willing to do things that are uncomfortable. It’s willing to do things out of love. I may think that I should raise my hands, but I’m thinking about the person next to
me. Are they just thinking I’m doing that for a show? I’m thinking out of the flesh, not thinking out of the spirit. When you have the fear of the Lord, you care more about what He thinks more than anybody else. And personally, I’m still working on that! Like in this particular area of worship, maybe I’ve got that revelation a little bit more, but in other areas of my life Idon’t have that as much. I’m I work in progress in that way It’s about focusing your mind On things above and not the things on earth. [Colossians 3:2] when you focus on the things that are above, you get that which is above You get the things of heaven. In heaven, there’s the glory. In heaven there is everything you need. you don’t worship to get things, but
it’s just a principle. Is, what you’re focusing on is the answer. you’re focusing on Jesus is because He is the answer just when you get a revelation of
His goodness and how good He is you can worship out out who He is. Sometimes you may have to start out just thanking God for what He’s done for us But sometimes we can be kind of at a loss like, “My life going that great right now and I don’t have a lot of things” But you can always rely on the character of God to worship If there is something on your mind, like a a care or concern Cast it on Him, because He cares for you [1 Peter 5:7] Especially if it’s something like unforgiveness, that’s it just like “GRR…” rolling around in your heart, forgive right away. It’s not that hard because you don’t have to say what the person did was right. You just have to say, Lord, I’m letting that go right now I don’t want bitterness rooted in my
life I want You rooted in my life. If you just have something like a grocery list, that you’re just thinking about and you don’t want to forget something, just write it down to get it off your mind. Just put it aside. Another thing is just worshiping in spirit an truth. Being born again your spirit makes that possible. Because otherwise our spirit man is dead and it’s not doing anything. But Jesus made it alive, when you were born again, through the cross and the resurrection Just think about what’s inside of you. The shekinah glory that killed people in
the Old Testament because of what Christ did, that
He made that possible. You don’t need necessarily somebody to help you worship. But you could worship God and connect with Him on your own Because He parted the way; He made the way for you. He ripped the veil… Sometimes we may think that worship can be boring or whatever. yeah, I admit I’ve thought that sometimes, but then I realize, “Oh God, I need more revelation of You if I’m thinking that way!” He is never bored with us as finite human beings and He is an infinite God.
