Worship is to honor with extravagant love and extreme submission.

Worship is declaring the worth of God, because He is absolutely worthy of all our worship. We don’t worship God for what we get out of it, but to give God the honor that is due to His name, recognizing who He is; His worth, His value, His goodness and mercy for His creation.

We worship our Creator God because we love Him and as we do this He desires to remove our blinders and give us an amazing, awe-inspiring glimpse of His divine radiance; as we lift Him up and exalt Him in worship through songs that describe His amazing love, faithfulness, His goodness and greatness over our lives.

What is that one desire that you would ask God for?

We read about Moses, the great man of God, met with God and had the opportunity to ask him for anything in the world. 

Exodus 33:14-16 – The LORD replied, “My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.” Then Moses said to him, “If your Presence does not go with us, do not send us up from here. … And the LORD said to Moses, “I will do the very thing you have asked, because I am pleased with you and I know you by name.”

He did not ask God for money or any kind of riches or status but had the desire for something far deeper and higher, something beyond himself, and that was the hunger for God and His presence.

True worship attracts intimacy between the worshipper and God.

So it is in knowing God and hungering for His presence that articulates in us a lifestyle of holiness unto Him; also expressed through songs of worship, praise and adoration. So it is not only in singing to God, making melody or sound of instruments; though all this is an excellent form of worship. But to express the beauty of holiness through an extreme or extravagant or exaggerated love for God and His ways. We need to make worship a non-negotiable priority in our life.

We worship God because He is God.

He is the Omnipotent, Omniscient, and Omnipresent God; and that is His identity. In our own lives and as His children coming together corporately; we surrender our lives in worship not because He is able to meet our needs and answer our prayers, but our focus of worship is on the worthiness of God. If we only focus our worship on God because He answers prayers and meets our needs then it is superficial worship.

God loved us first. It is highly appropriate to love Him back with all our heart, with all our mind, with all our strength and thank Him for all the things he has done for us.
