Lord, I feel as if I’m learning

all the time

what worship of You

looks like

 

It is all-encompassing,

a life poured out and in awe of You

 

A wide awake observation

 

It is my everything

bowed to You

expecting and obedient

 

It is surrender

humility

recognition of You

as God of all

 

It is discipline

heart focus

clarity

Light

 

It is words

and listening

singing

speaking

quiet

 

Worship is open eyes

open heart

open mind

open, redeemed, learning soul

 

Worship is gratefulness and reverential wonder

 

You are the object of my worship

Yours is the grace that brings me here

 

– Susie Stewart

 

It’s who you are and the way you live that count before God. Your worship must engage your spirit in the pursuit of truth. That’s the kind of people the Father is out looking for: those who are simply and honestly themselves before Him in their worship. God is sheer being itself—Spirit. Those who worship Him must do it out of their very being, their spirits, their true selves, in adoration.

– John 4:23-24 (MSG)

 

In prayer we are occupied with our needs, in thanksgiving we are occupied with our blessings, but in worship we are totally occupied with God Himself.

– A.P. Gibbs

 

Worship is not a repetitious exercise of rituals and formulas. These create a veil that actually prevents us from enjoying the presence of the Lord. Worship is the heart poured out in gratitude and awe, expressing our appreciation of who He is and what He has done for us by His grace through Jesus Christ.

– Dave Hunt

 

Worship is the path to experiencing the presence of God, the way to face-to-face intimacy.

– Linda Dillow
