Worship

I pray every day. I ask God to help me with this, to do that for me. I ask Him to help my friends and family. I ask him to give me strength. I go to Church every week. I also read the bible every day. But the question I’m asking myself (and you) is “Do I (you) worship God?” Does what I do every day in my faith life give God the glory and honor He deserves?

It might help to define what worship means. Worship means: a reverent honor and homage paid to God or a sacred personage, or to any object regarded as sacred. To worship is to pay homage and to adore God. It is to give Him the glory He deserves for our life. We would not be who we are today, we would not even exist, if it were not for the will of God. He deserves our worship and our gratitude.

So, to get back to my original question…Do I worship God? I’m afraid I don’t. The whole idea of worship it to give glory to God through our prayers. All I do in my prayers is ask God for things. I ask Him to help me, to help my friends, to help my family. I ask him to give me what I need. All of this is good prayer, but I do not give praise and honor to the One who gave me life.

Lord God, I give you all my praise and glory. You are the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords. You are deserving of my worship. I am forever grateful to You for the life you have given me. Fill me with the Holy Spirit so that I may worship You in all I do.
