Worship With Gladness

god-do-it-again-coverPsalm 100:2  “Worship the Lord with gladness.”

How do we worship the Lord with gladness?

Gladness according to the Webster Dictionary means: “characterized by or showing cheerfulness, joy, or pleasure, as looks or utterances.” So we are to worship the Lord by showing cheerfulness, joy or pleasure. And we are to worship the Lord with looks or utterances; our speaking out.

Our Father in Heaven wants us to worship Him by being glad, being joyful, and speaking out the gladness we have for Him and for what we has given to us in our lives; what He has so graciously given us. If we were to look at Deuteronomy 28: 47 it tells us that because the Israelites did not serve the LORD their God with joy and a glad heart for all God had done, curses were to fall upon them. Our Father wants us to worship Him and thank Him for all He has done for us!

We are to think on, and list all those things we are grateful for; every little thing. I challenge you today to use this whole day to thank on the goodness that your Father has given you. As you move throughout your day, stop and thank Him. Choose to shut off the radio on your commute. Choose to take time in your lunch hour or break to think on those things. From the smallest to the biggest, use this day to worship Him with gladness!

Your Praise Will Open the Door!

Your Praise Will Open the Door!

God heal me in Jesus Name! Father provide for me in Jesus Name. – We have all prayed these prayers and stood on the Word of God. However, first we must worship our Heavenly Father before we expect Him to do anything for us! Worship absolutely must come first – THEN we have a right to ask. In Matthew 4:10-11 Jesus was speaking to Satan and He said “ Get thee hence, Satan; for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord, thy God, and him only shalt thou serve. Then the devil leaveth him, and, behold, angels came and ministered unto him.”

Did you see it? “thou shalt worship the Lord, thy God…..Then the devil leaveth him…” Jesus gave us a key and an example. Worship God first; then all things that is not from God will leave.

Sickness, disease, death, destruction, conflict, lack, anything that does not resemble God or heaven is NOT from God. James 1:17 says “Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.” So God ONLY sends good gifts and if it is not good then it is not from your Heavenly Father and you have the right and the authority from Jesus Christ himself to demand it out of your life! But first, we must worship and praise him.

Every day when we wake up, words of worship and praise should come out of our mouths. Every day as we go about our day, words of worship and praise should come out of our mouths. Every evening when we lie down to go to sleep words of worship and praise should come out of our mouths. Then as we do this every day and the devil shows up in your life – the Lord Jesus Christ himself  will be there ready, willing, and able! Psalm 22:3 tells us God inhabits the praises of his people.  The word “inhabit’ means “to live in a place.” As we praise and worship our God, He – God Himself, comes to live in the place we are. In our homes, our offices, our churches, our ministries, our schools. Wherever we are, wherever we worship, He comes and inhabits!
