Just as we roll out drums, blow trumpets, dance, sing, and shout aloud in honour of people we consider as royalty and dignitaries with so much accolades, we cannot separate between God and the true worship He deserves.
The bible records that God inhabits the praises of His people, therefore commands that men should praise Him, most especially His people.
Angels and the twenty four elders in Heaven worship before His Throne day and night singing “Holy, Holy is The Lord God Almighty”, “You are worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power; for You created all things, and by Your will they exist and are created. (Revelations 4:8-11)
To our amazement, even satan was created by God with music in him(Ezekiel 28:13) but the sin of pride corrupted him.
(Folks, be careful of the kind of music you listen to). Check if the inspiration is from God or Satan.
God is The Creator of true and Holy worship. He created man and all things to worship Him.
Therefore, if we give our wholesome worship in songs, dance and instruments to Satan and men, we have been wrongly taught and this is SIN.
True worship backed up with righteous and holy living will bring heaven to our doorstep. Angelic visitations, clearer visions, deeper revelations and answers to prayers are the outcome of true worship to God in Spirit and truth, straight from the heart.
Friends, you must of necessity have a mutual relationship with God before He can accept your praises as sweet smelling savour. The Holy Spirit helps us to worship and pray to Him when we are lost in His worship.
King David wrote 150 psalms in the bible, skilfully played on stringed instruments to worship God and even danced wholeheartedly before Him. No wonder, God called him a man after His heart.
You too can be a true worshipper starting, today. Remember, there are always many things to thank God for.
