Worship and Fullness

Dear readers below I have a guest writer, my dad. This subject is something we can all relate too. I found it very helpful, as I can be a worrier and this can consume me sometime if I let it. Here is the antidote. No matter the circumstance we are going through this should be our response. Enjoy and be blessed!  –Johanna

 

WORSHIP AND FULLNESS

In Ephesians 5:18 we are told to be:
FILLED with Holy Spirit,
SPEAKING to one another in Psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs,
SINGING and MAKING MELODY in our hearts TO THE LORD

In other words we should be a walking, talking, singing worship service. Why? Because we are the temple of God.
What I am finding is that prayer without ceasing is worship without ceasing. This brings an impenetrable peace and joy because praise and honor to the Lord drives out every evil. Nothing can break through the WALL OF PRAISE and THANKSGIVING!

Our minds never stop! Even when we are thinking about one thing it is always undergirded by some other thought–attitude–worry. Let the foundation of your mind be intentional in the praise and all the other thoughts will be established on a firm foundation The superstructure of your mind will be filled with glory!

Ask the Lord to perfect praise from your heart! Remember, He said, “out of the mouths of babes God has PERFECTED praise!

  1. First of all, how wonderful to have a Dad like that! I long for my parents to have a walk with God such as this. You are blessed, Johanna.

    Secondly, this post really resonates with me. Last winter, I was under severe attack and the ONLY thing that got me through it AND gave me great victory was to worship the Lord NO matter what. I did so constantly and because of that, the enemy was driven back. As I forced myself to shut out all other thoughts, and focus on the Lord and His Word, He gave me victory, peace and joy. Your Dad is correct. Praise the Lord because He is greater than anything the enemy can throw at us! …… Hugs, Johanna. 🙂
