Your Place of Worship
First things first, worship is a lifestyle. It's honoring and glorifying God in every area of your life on a daily basis. It's not the 15 minutes during church service when the praise team is singing a slow song. Sure enough, the times when we assemble together to worship God serve as motivation to usher us into the spirit of worship; however, it is ultimately our personal relationship with Christ that allows us the opportunity to truly enter into His holy presence.
Anyone who has experienced the presence of God, through worship, knows that there is no greater place to be. It's through your place of worship that God's presence engulfs your heart and He wraps you sweetly in His bosom, like a mother swaddling her newborn baby. In that moment nothing matters, except basking in His glory. You see, when you worship God and tap into His presence, you find everything you need - peace; comfort; healing; joy, deliverance; hope; love;...whatever it is you stand in need of can be found in the holy of holies.
Many of us can't find what we need from God because we don't take time to get in His presence. Today, I encourage you to find your place of worship, not because you need something from God, but simply because you want to commune with Him and delight in His company. I urge you to invoke the presence of God in your life...nothing compares to it. Remember, they that worship Him, must worship Him in spirit and truth. (John 4:24)
Til we meet again...live more, worry less, laugh often.
Your sister in Christ,
