Day 28 – The Gift of Worship

Day 17 - 3 thoughts

Day 28 320x350 Day 28   The Gift of WorshipWe were at church on Sunday and full into the flow of worship. As I was walking up and down just singing to God, I realised that worship comes in all sorts of forms.

As I asked the Lord to help me expand on this idea, I realised that our whole day has opportunities to be able to offer worship.

One of the things that always puts a huge smile on my face, is being able to go for a walk in the park across the road from where we live. The moment I look ahead of me and see the beautiful green grass contrasted against the brilliant blue sky, I can feel my shoulders relax. As I see the huge, majestic trees and the beautiful little flowers at their feet, I can’t help but grin from ear to ear.

It’s one of the things that lift me up and makes me feel better every day. This, is an act of worship. All of this green grass and the trees and beauty of the little flowers and beautiful blue sky, are all made by God. He knows how much this scene pulls at our heartstrings. He loves nature and that love of nature has been put into us too.

When we smile because something tugs at our heart like that, it’s a way of knowing that the same thing that puts a smile on our face, puts a smile on God’s face too. We are created in His image and He has put within our hearts the same things that delight His heart.

I started to think of other ways that we can worship God during the day. It stands to reason that the things that delight His heart, will delight ours. Ergo, the opposite must also be true. The things that delight our hearts come from Him.

As I was singing, I heard the beautiful voices around me. Something that really thrills my heart is when we’re singing a song – the notes are crystal clear and the harmonies blend beautifully together. This is a way that we can worship God with the voices that He’s given us. The ability to sing notes and harmonise and put melodies and choruses and verses together and sing those words from the pit of our stomach is straight from God.

What about when we look at somebody we love and that beautiful, warm feeling of total love rolls over us. That’s the way God feels about when He looks at us. So, the next time you look at someone you love and are just overwhelmed by that feeling of love, know that that is an act of worship too because we’re feeling with God’s love.

When we care for one another, we are also worshipping God. It’s one of God’s main character traits. He, loves to help. When we see someone that is in need of help, we get to be able to help them and pass on a little bit of our love to them. It puts such a huge smile on God’s face when He sees His children helping one another, loving one another and nurturing one another. Wow, what an act of worship.

One of the things that I am learning now, is realising that these many little things that happen to me during the day and swell my heart, are acts of worship. When I recognise what they are, I stop and look up to the sky and just smile at God. I’m learning to see Him in little things all through the day and they’re really thrilling to my heart. When this happens I just have to stop and say, “I love spending time with You. I love the way You put blessings everywhere for us to be able to see and use. I love the smile you put on my face throughout the day.”

This becomes a way of being able to offer worship to God all through the day.

It’s not as something that you have to consciously think about doing. You just spontaneously worship Him when something touches your heart, or something lights up your face or you feel deeply loved and cared for by someone else.

Ask the Holy Spirit to make you aware of these opportunities all through the day. Opportunities to see the blessings that God sends in a multitude of forms throughout the day. As you see them, stop and take a minute to smile and tell Him how much you love Him.

This is the most amazing way to spend your whole day worshipping God.
