“…O, come let us adore Him…”

When we worship the King we focus our entire being on the magnificence of His entire being. He is worthy of all our praise simply by virtue of Who He is! We cannot worship our God without also recognizing what He has done for us. When someone has rescued us – when our life has been saved from certain calamity or doom – we become very grateful and we tend to focus our attention on the One Who did the saving. That is good and that is right…especially as it pertains to our worship of Almighty God. Have you ever stoped to wonder just how God uses even our worship of Him for our own benefit? Here is one of my favorite Kingdom Truths: worship requires the focus of our entire being. When I worship, I must engage my mind…my emotions…my senses…my physical body in order to relate to my God in worship. The Kingdom Truth? When I am entirely consumed relationally in worship – my entire being engaged – there is no room for t he enemy or his lies! While worshiping the Lord the enemy is defeated and my identity is bathed in the truth of Who He is which, in turn, reminds me of who and of Whose I am! O, come let us adore and worship Him!

Use worship as one of the weapons of your warfare against the enemy and his lies in your life today. Exalt God and watch His glory invade your existence.

{Let} the high praises of God {be} in their mouth, And a two-edged sword in their hand, To execute vengeance on the nations And punishment on the peoples, To bind their kings with chains And their nobles with fetters of iron, To execute on them the judgment written; This is an honor for all His godly ones. Praise the LORD! Psalm 149:6-9 NASB
