Is there a correct and perfect way to worship the Lord? Everyone seems to worship Him in different ways. My personal way to express worship is when I take that time in the day to be alone with Him, reading the Word, and listening to music. I also feel His presence
if I am listening to a christian radio program, or a christian show streamed online. The Word of God can activate a response from your spirit to His spirit; it can quicken The Holy Spirit inside your heart, and you may begin to feel joy and then you start to praise His name.
I often feel His presence when I go to church, and when the pastor says something that touches my heart, or when the choir sings a song with passion. These are the usual ways that christians worship, but they are not the only ways. Some people like to go outside
in the woods, on the beach, walking down a street, jogging listening to christian music. Some people like to be alone in a quiet dark place and meditate. Others put on music and sing and dance and praise Him for hours.
When you do these things, you are worshiping the Lord if your heart is sincere. He just wants to spend time with His children everyday. He enjoys that time with us, and He is disappointed when we do not take the time to be with Him. If you are guilty of only communicating with Him when you need something from Him, let me encourage you to start speaking to Him just because He is your friend. Tell Him about your day, tell Him how much you love him, pour out your heart to Him so that He can comfort you.
It's hard for some people to believe that God really cares about everything we are going through, and that even the little things matter to Him as well. We focus so much on what is happening in this life, that we forget to include Jesus in our personal lives. As the world gets darker and crazier, we need to press closer into Jesus, into His love. He will guide us and protect us. If you ask Him for guidance in all the areas of your life, He will give the best answer, the perfect solution.
He loves it when His children press closer into Him, He is our Father, and great fathers always have time for their children; they will do what they can to guide them and help them, they will protect them and give up their life for them if necessary....
If you feel the Holy Spirit tugging at your heart, respond to His calling, tell Him "I'm here Lord, and I am listening", and you will be blessed with grace, love, and joy in your heart.
If the Lord is asking you to give your life to Him, then repeat this prayer:
Prayer of Salvation
I repent for trying to be master of my own life. I change my mind about who I want to be in charge of my life. I turn from my useless and unproductive thoughts that I am the center of my universe and choose to believe in the living God who created everything, including me (Acts 14:15). I have lived without a purpose but now I will live to hear and obey You, God (Jn. 5:19, 20,30).
I confess with my lips that Jesus is Lord and believe in my heart that God raised Him from the dead. I believe that God so loved the world He sent His only Son Jesus to shed His blood to wash away the barrier of sin (Jn. 3:16)
I receive You, Jesus as MY Lord and Savior (Jn. 1:11,12).
I welcome You, Holy Spirit, into my life to rescue and empower me and to restore me to intimacy with my heavenly Father (Acts 2:38).
My Little Light Will Shine http://mylittlelightwillshine.blogspot.com/
If you just confessed this prayer, you are saved! I welcome you into the family my (brother/sister) I pray for peace, joy, and happiness in your life as you allow the Lord to love you and bless you and give you assurance of everlasting life with Him forever and ever......PRAISE GOD!
