Someone has said that we are not human beings trying to have a spiritual experience but spiritual beings trying to have a human experience. The life force within you came from God, Who is Spirit. So in the act of worship. It’s like going back to your beginnings and reconnecting with Him.
The story is told of a little boy sitting beside the crib of his newborn baby sister. He whisper to her, “Tell me what God is like, for I have forgotten.”
Jesus said, “God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in Spirit (out of the depths of your spirit).
When asked how he could score over eighty points for his team in a single game, basketball superstar Michael Jordan replied, “Because I was in the zone”. In a sense, heartfelt worship takes you into God’s – zone! David the Psalmist lived there. “Seven times a day do I praise (You)….”(Psalm 119:164) “From the rising of the sun to its going down the Lord’s name is to be praised” (Psalm 113:3) “As the deer pants for the water brooks, so pants my soul for You, O God” (Psalm 42:1). What a picture. In the stream of God’s presence our deepest thirst is quenched, our wounds are healed, our strength is renewed, and we are placed beyond the reach of the enemy.
Henry Blacaby says, “You will never be satisfied just to know about God. Really knowing God comes only through experience as He reveals Himself to you.” And that is what happens when you spend time “In the worship zone”
May the LORD bless Nigeria, American and Israel and take care of us; May the LORD make His face shine upon us, And be gracious to us; May the Lord lift up His countenance upon us, And give us peace, In Jesus Christ Name, we pray! Amen!
