Topic: The Necessity And Power Of Worship
The easiest way to fill your life with God’s Presence and deprive the devil of access to your life is through worship and praise.
SCRIPTURE: But thou art holy, O thou that inhabitest the praises of Israel. Psalm 22:3
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: The easiest way to fill your life with God’s Presence and deprive the devil of access to your life is through worship and praise.
Worshipping and praising God is a very powerful force for the believer. Worship is an impregnable force against the enemy.
That is why one of the greatest agenda of the devil is to make your problems or challenges your focus so as to divert your attention from worshipping and praising God. Whatever becomes your focus becomes your object of worship, and who you worship determines who responds to you in times of need. When your problems begin to drive you, then your progress begins to fade away.
So, understand that there is a battle around your worship and you must win that battle if your welfare and victory in life must be intact.
Now, why is worship so crucial and powerful?
Worship frustrates satanic presence and activity
Worship frustrates satanic presence and activity by attracting the Presence of God. The easiest way to fill your life with God’s Presence and deprive the devil of access to your life is through worship and praise (Psalm 32:7). The opposite is true. Any life that is filled with ingratitude, un-thankfulness, complaining, murmuring and grumbling is a life where the devil resides.
Now, one channel of worship is total surrender to God.
Total surrender to the Almighty God is your proof of worship. Surrender, to a real worshipper means that his will is not in competition with the Will of God. God Almighty is the only one who determines where you go and what you do with your life. That is worship.
REMEMBER THIS: The easiest way to fill your life with God’s Presence and deprive the devil of access to your life is worship and praise.
Endeavour to surround yourself with praise and worship, either singing by yourself or by playing CDs or DVDs of songs by anointed worshippers.
Worship God in the beauty of holiness; let sin and guilt be far from you.
PRAYER: Lord, I ask that You receive my praise and worship today. Separate me from anything that will hinder me from accessing Your Presence, Lord in Jesus’ Name.
