Worshiping God for who he is.
Text: Psalm 145: 2-5
“Every day, I will bless you and praise your name forever and ever. Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised, and his greatness is unsearchable. One generation shall commend your works to another, and shall declare your mighty acts. On the glorious splendor of your majesty, and on your wondrous works, I will meditate.”
A W Tozer writes, “We have lost the sense of who God is and have replaced our fathers’ God with an artificial God that only temporarily soothes our conscience. This new God is the God of convenience and entertainment. All this God is interested in is making one happy and feeling good about oneself….” With this kind of God, my worship, service, and willingness to listen, summit, and obey will depend more on what I receive or expect to receive and less on the authority God has.
- Who is the God I worship? How is this God?
- Do I worship him because of what he is, what he gives, or will provide?
- Is the gift more important than the giver? Do I worship him even if I do not receive what I expect?
- Do I see a “God of convenience and entertainment” in my Home Group, Church, Workplace? How can this be addressed?
- Pray that you can grow in the knowledge of who God is.
- Pray that your church and conference can grow in the faith, that God wants to give, protect, heal, but that our worship is motivated by who he is, even if our expectations are not met.
- Pray that all participants of Despertar 22 will come to worship and listen to God because of who he is.
- Pray that we all have a willingness to have an unconditional yes to the Word of God.
- Pray for the Worship team that will lead us in these encounters.
- Pray for the situation in Ukraine and Europe.
