Worship Him Every Day

God is Spirit, and those who worship Him 
 must worship in spirit and truth. 
John 4:24 HCSB

God’s Word makes it clear: we should offer our Creator the praise and worship He deserves—and we shouldn’t wait until Sunday morning to do so. Yet we live in a distraction-filled society that encourages us to make praise and worship a one-day-a-week activity.

If we allow the distractions of everyday living to interfere with the practice of regular worship and praise—or if we yield to the countless temptations of our world—we find ourselves engaged in a struggle between good and evil, a clash between God and Satan. Our responses to these struggles have implications that echo throughout our families and throughout our communities.

Do you take time each day to worship your Father in heaven, or do you wait until Sunday morning to praise Him for His blessings? The answer to this question will, in large part, determine the quality and direction of your spiritual life in good times and in turbulent times.

Every day provides opportunities to put God where He belongs: at the center of our lives. When we do so, we worship Him not only with our words, but also with our deeds, and that’s as it should be. For believers, God comes first. Always first.

I am of the opinion that we should not be concerned about working for God until we have learned the meaning and delight of worshipping Him. 
A. W. Tozer

Worship is a daunting task. Each worships differently. But each should worship. 
Max Lucado

To worship Him in truth means to worship Him honestly, without hypocrisy, standing open and transparent before Him. 
Anne Graham Lotz

Today’s Prayer

Heavenly Father, let today and every day be a time of worship. Let me worship You, not only with words and deeds, but also with my heart. In the quiet moments of the day, let me praise You and thank You for creating me, loving me, guiding me, and saving me. Amen
