Worship turns the face of God.
Do you know that each time you worship, especially when you’re going through something hard, it moves His heart? With all that David endured with Saul, he praised the Lord and got Gods favor over his life.
Leah was hated by Jacob and endured years of disdain from him and her sister, Rachel until she realized God had opened her womb and blessed her with sons (Genesis 29). By her 4th one, she turned her praise to God and named him Judah (praise). When she stopped looking for fulfillment from her husband and turned her eyes toward God, her very countenance changed. When she died, she was placed in the honored burial place with Abraham and Sarah.
Praise changes you. You can be a nothing, a nobody, going through the hardest trial you’ve ever faced, but like Leah, God sees you and He’s going to turn things around. You already have Gods attention! You don’t have to do anything to earn His favor, Jesus did that for you with His sacrifice. But when you worship God, it confuses your enemy. He doesn’t know what to do with a Christian who refuses to allow their ‘now’ to determine their future.
I know my God is a big God! I know He is able to far surpass anything I can think or imagine. I’m expecting His blessing on my life! If He did it for others, He will do it for me.
I will bless the Lord! I will worship His Holy Name! He’s bigger than the problems I face. He is so much bigger! Like David I will declare, “Sing to the Lord, all you godly ones! Praise his holy name. For his anger lasts only a moment, but his favor lasts a lifetime! Weeping may last through the night, but joy comes with the morning.” Psalm 30:4-5
Good Morning To Worship,
