Worship Wednesday

I am going back to my Worship Wednesdays! I am at a point where I am striving  to be more worshipful in my life.  I know it works to bring me back to being centered and grounded in my faith.  Worship fills my storming soul with peace and fills me with power.  Last week I was worn out and having a tough week. The kids were not helping with their fighting and my hormones were not cooperating either.  As I have stated before I can sometimes have PMS so bad it can make me doubt my own salvation. So I turned off the TV and plugged in my Iphone to the speakers in the house and played worship music.  My kids acted better, I calmed down and peace flowed through the house. Worship is such a strong weapon to use against the schemes of the devil. When there is nothing I can do about my situation and I have laid it down at the foot of the cross, all I have left to do is worship. It is what I should have done first! It clears my mind from worry and turns my lips from complaining to praise! Tell God who he is and how much you love him! Thank him for all he has done! Sometimes our breakthrough come when we express our needs to God and verbally tell him that we know he has the power to heal and to mend.  Even when your heart does not start out believing it, the mind only knows what the tongue tells it! Cry out to him that he is the supplier of our needs! That is why I love the words to the chorus of the song, "You are Holy." "You are Lord of Lords, You are King of Kings, You are mighty God, Lord of everything! Alpha Omega! Beginning and End! My Savior Messiah Redeemer and Friend. Your my prince of Peace and I will live my live to Him." To keep idle hand from making things worse then I lift them in praise to Christ!  I love to sing that song because you are telling God that he is those things. It is not a song about him it is a song to him!  Sing that enough and your mind catches up, where the mind goes the emotions catch up, where the emotions go belief follows!  It is amazing the power that is released when we take our hands off our problems and raise them instead in praise!
Just like the people used to do when the king and the men would go into battle.  They would raise their hands cheering, lifting banners high in the air.  Banners telling their enemies who they supported! Banners with the crest of of the ruling king!  Our hands are our banners! We are telling the enemy which King we serve, which King we worship and which King we follow! We are celebrating our King and his battle as he goes into battle on our behalf! I love the image of that. This life is a battle but not any victory compared to the day that the King will come riding in on the white horse ending the final battle victoriously!  Raise your hands in worship with full abandonment because we serve the ruling King who will reign eternally and is always victorious!
"To him who sits on the throne and to the Lamb be praise and honor and glory and power, for ever and ever!"
Revelations 5:13

This is a great idea. I am so much better off when I take the time to focus on what is truly important.
