Come, let us bow down in worship, let us kneel before the LORD our Maker; Psalm 95:6 (NIV)
Do you want to bow down to worship me? Am I worthy of your praise and thanks? Are you glad in your heart about who I am and all that I have done? Yes, I want to bow down to worship you. You are completely worthy of all my thanks and praise. I am very glad about who you are and all that you have done in the world and for me. You feel a little lost as to how to worship me, don’t you? Your heart is in the right place. You just don’t know where to begin, do you? No not really. Beginning is the most important step. Your heart of thankfulness will help you to begin to worship me. How do I begin? Set a time and pick a place to begin to worship me. Will that be hard for you to do? No, I have a time and place in mind right now. The time is right now. The place is right here. That’s very good. You’re ready right now? Yes, I am. Good, so many never get around to taking this first step. Their lives are too busy. They can never seem to find the time to draw near to me in worship. You have taken your first step of setting a time and picking a place to worship me. Yes, I have. The second step is very much like the first step. What’s that? Keep making time and picking a place to worship me. You will grow as you continue to worship me. Consistency and constancy will be very important if you want to learn how to worship me. Your time worshipping me will be like an unfolding journey. You will see and hear and learn new things as you continue to worship me.
I am here now. Yes, you are. What would you like to say to me? I am thankful that you have given me a heart that wants to worship you. I am thankful that you want me to know you. I am thankful that you have placed a burning desire in my heart to want to know you. I am thankful that you love me. I am thankful that you have placed a passion in my heart to love you. I am thankful that you are my Father and I am your child. You speak to me so that I can hear you. You teach me what you want me to know. You lead me through life. You hold on to me as I hold on to you. You guard and guide my life. You counsel me. You are molding and shaping me into the person that you want me to be. You have a purpose and plan for my life to fulfill. You have given me gifts and talents and abilities with which I can serve you. You will use me to bring glory to your name. You will bear fruit for your kingdom through my life. For all of these things I am so thankful and grateful. You are so good to me. You continually show me your kindness, mercy and love. You have given me a life to live with and for you. Yes, I have. Here I am now, bowing down to give you all my thanks and praise. Teach me how to worship you. Yes, I will. Keep coming to me. Yes, I will. That will be very good.
Heavenly Father, you are worthy of all my praise and worship. I will stop and make time to bow down in worship before you. It is my joy to express my worship to you for who you are and all you have done. I love you with all my heart, mind, soul and strength. Amen
