The Word of God tells us that we are to praise Him with the fruit of our lips (Hebrews 13:15 AMP 15 Through Him, therefore, let us constantly and at all times offer up to God a sacrifice of praise, which is the fruit of lips that thankfully acknowledge and confess and glorify His name.) and many often say that if they had 1000 tongues they could not thank Him enough.
But can I tell you that praise and thanksgiving does not cancel out worship…unfortunately many have stopped just short of worship and are now in a daze wondering why their intimacy with The Father is void. We can praise and thank Him until we break a sweat, we can praise Him until our feet hurt and we can praise Him until we pass out.
But the sign of a true worshipper is not just portrayed in what we do in the presence of others…but rather in how and to what depth we do it directly with The Father. Praise can be done through music, dance, poetry, singing, etc…it is a vehicle that if driven properly can transport you into the presence of God…and into a place of worship.
Many have arrived at the station of praise however many have simply parked there. Praise is seen on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram through various posts…yet the vehicle to worship has turned from its original destination and is headed toward a dead-end road.
We are to WORSHIP in spirit AND in truth. Let's not miss God because we have parked and are idle in praise mode.
Direction For The People Of God...According To The Word Of God.
