Praise is thanking God while Worship is worshiping Him for Who HE IS!

When it comes to worship the bible is truly clear about how we are to worship. Your praise and worship cannot just be limited to you on Sundays when you attend church. Praise and worship are a lifestyle.

The benefits of worship, you cannot worry and worship at the same time.  For it is impossible to do. Worship brings you into the presence of God. How does your heart respond to worship? Our hearts will determine our worship. 

Many of us struggle with worship because we think that it is some type of formula to it. God only requires two things when we worship Him, and they are Spirit and Truth. For He says that the true worshippers will worship Him in Spirit and Truth.

The only reason that the devil does not want us worshipping God is because Lucifer himself was the musician in heaven. Before his fall Satan, was the “anointed cherub” Ezekiel 28:14. He was adorned with every precious jewel imaginable Ezekiel 28:13. He was “the model of perfection, full of wisdom and perfect in beauty” Ezekiel 28:12.

The last thing that Satan wants is for us to worship God Almighty. So, he comes to us whispering in our ears saying thing like, you are doing it wrong. You do not know how to worship. He wants you and I to think that our heart worship to God is not genuine. Do not raise your hands, everyone will think that you done something bad. See it is stuff like this that keeps people’s hands tied to the chains of bondage.

Worshiping God is one of the most humbling experiences one can have. He is Jehovah-Jireh, the Lord will provide. He is Jehovah-Rapha my healer. He is Jehovah-Shammah, The Lord is with me. He is Jehovah-Shalom, our peace. He is Jehovah-Nissi, He is our Banner. He is Jehovah-Raah, my shepherd. He is Jehovah-Tisdkenu, our Righteousness.

Psalm 95:6 Oh come, let us worship and bow down; let us kneel before the Lord, our Maker.

Isaiah 12:5 “Sing praises to the Lord, for he has done gloriously; let this be made known in all the earth.

Luke 4:8 And Jesus answered him, “It is written, “‘You shall worship the Lord your God, and him only shall you serve.’”

    Not what I expected, but God is definitely working through circumstances to teach and hone my heart. How about you? Anything you would like prayer for?

  4. desirayl says:

    I pray that He gives you the strength and peace as He works those circumstances out for you.

    Yes, if you would keep my Mother In Law in Prayer. She had a stroke a few months ago and she is now in a nursing home. The stroke has caused her to struggle with her thoughts and words. She is in her 70’s. It has been hard on the family. Our prayer is that God will bring complete healing to her mind.

    Thank you for asking. That means a lot to me sis.

    Oh dear sister! My own mother-in-law had a severe stroke 17 years ago and it changed all of our lives permanently. She is still alive and loves the Lord. I can truly say, God used all of it for His glory. I will definitely pray for you, your family, and your mother-in-law. May God restore and bring peace to her heart and mind. ❤️

    Thank you for your prayers. God is so faithful, I know He will work it all out for good. I’m just still learning patience and trust. 😉

    Hope, thank you so much for that wonderful prayer. What you just shared with me regarding your mother in law gives me hope. Praise God that she is still with you.

    We are going today to visit her our visits has to be through the window for no one is allowed in the building.

    They have a cell phone in which we dial in and mom sits in her chair by the window this way she can hear us and we can hear her.

    And though she struggles with her words and thoughts she looks beautiful. She has been serving the Lord since she was 15 years old.

    I know God has her and is keeping her. Thanks again Hope.

    I find that singing and worshipping God during the day keeps me from having anxiety. Our focus changes from on ourself to on Him. Blessings Desirayl!

  10. desirayl says:

    Having anxiety is no joke. Last week I was experiencing it. I did a lot of praise and worship that day.

    I must of spent hours in His presence singing and praying. When I was done I felt so much better.

  11. Cindy Dawson says:

    That’s a wonderful testimony!

  12. desirayl says:
