Know Who You Worship
April 21, 2024
“You worship what you do not know; we worship what we know,” John 4:22 (ESV)
As we move into what this week has in store for our lives we cannot forget about worship. Our worship should not be a once-a-week occurrence, but a daily part of all our lives. When we know what and who we worship, we should want to worship all the time. The Scripture reminds us that Jesus in His conversation with the woman at the well begins to talk about the place of worship and the focus of worship. Jesus tells her, you worship what you do not know, but we know what we worship. I encourage you today to remember that God should always be the focus of your worship. Some will worship material things, and others will worship family members and celebrities, but your worship should be reserved for God and God alone. You not only should know who you worship, but you should have a reason why you worship Him. You should worship God for who He is. You should worship Him for being by your side through thick and thin. You should worship Him for keeping you when you needed to be kept and blessing you when you needed a blessing in your life. You should worship Him because He has given you grace and mercy instead of what you deserved. Worship Him because He will never leave or fail you. You should have a multiplicity of reason to worship God, for the multitude things He has done in your life. You know Who you worship, you worship the King of kings and the Lord of lords, you worship the Almighty and everlasting God, who was, and is, and will always be God. I know Who I worship, and I know why I worship Him, and there will not be a day that goes by in my life that I will not worship God. Since I know Who and why I worship, I have no doubt, "It's My Year To Get My Thing From My God!"
Lord thank you for being my God. No matter the day of the week or where I may find myself, I will worship you. Thank you for all you have done and are doing in my life, I give you all the glory. I love you Lord. In Jesus Name Amen.
