The Power of Worship
Simply put - worship is extremely powerful. When we worship God, our lives are forever changed. The act of worship takes humility because we must realize that God is infinitely more powerful and awesome than we are, and just like a child we humbly admit that we need Him. James 4:6 says "Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up" (KJV). In so many words, the way to go high is to go low - to humble ourselves before God, confess our sins and exalt God Almighty in everything we do and say. This in turn opens the door for God to lift us high above our problems, and to have favor with God and man. The Bible speaks very clearly about how worship can change our lives and usher in God's blessing. Worship can be expressed in many ways - through song, devotion, prayer, Bible reading, giving, lifestyle and other ways that involve expressing our reverence to God. One thing is certain - God loves being pursued and responds to passionate worship!
