“Since we are receiving a Kingdom that is unshakable, let us be thankful and please God by worshiping him with holy fear and awe. For our God is a devouring fire.” Hebrews 12:28-29
A Call To: Praise
Living a lifestyle of praise requires a mindset shift. It requires me to see God as who He says he is; not seeing Him through my own brokenness or with a lack mindset. In these verses it reads that the Kingdom is unshakable. That translates to me that nothing is too big for God!
Have you ever been worshiping God and the atmosphere shifts and you experience the holiness of God? In that moment, all I can do is kneel down, get low, because of who He is. There is a reverence that is required when You experience the holiness and fear of the Lord. I became so aware of my need for a Savior. I imagine what it will be like in Heaven worshiping in the Throne Room of God singing,“Holy, Holy, is the Lord God Almighty!”
“Our God is a devouring fire.” Can you picture what that might look like? If I know that God is love, I don’t need to be afraid. If I know that God has good things for my life, then I need to trust Him. I envision Him engulfing me in His love. As I allow him to embrace me, He is purifying my heart, allowing lies and strongholds to melt away as I encounter Him.
Let’s begin to cultivate a lifestyle of worship–turning our hearts towards Him in all we do!
I invite you to close your eyes. Use your imagination to picture God engulfing you with His love. Ask Him what He loves about you? Next, let God know what you love about Him.
