Everyone worships something in life; the question is what do you worship? Webster defines worship as “extravagant respect or admiration for or devotion to an object of esteem”.
Today people worship football, baseball, TV, work, leaders, cars, and so on.
Anything you exalt in your life you actually can worship. What do you talk about and spend your time on most in your life? If I asked your closest friend about you right now, what would they say you are passionate for?
Many of you are wondering what is the big deal anyhow? Well, see if you are worshipping something in your life that CAN NOT give anything back to you for the worship you give it then it is really like eating cardboard. You get filled up but don’t get any nourishment for your body. What I have found when I worshipped a job is the only thing it did was suck me dry and take away my time and usually destroy my life… this goes the same with anything we worship that does not give back to us. Worship should be a two way relationship!
Where am I going? For many years in my life I worshipped things looking to make me happy, things to satisfy my desires, things that only took from me but never gave anything back and some of those things helped destroy my life years ago.
Today I Worship Jesus My Lord and Savior. He has become my best friend, he has never left me and he brings me joy, peace, and always Loves me even when I still do really stupid things! He loves me for who I am, not what I do. He satisfies my desires with good things, He has healed my body many times, He has healed my marriage, He gave Joyce and me two beautiful children when it was impossible to do it on our own. He gave me a free pass to Heaven when I die… and honestly if that was all He ever did for me, that alone is worth the Worship I give Him.
When you worship anything you are investing your time and energy into that thing or person, so I just wanted you to stop and think about whether you are getting a return for your investment.
Almost everyone in the U.S.A. has heard about Jesus because we have Christmas and Easter, but they don’t KNOW Him. If that is you and you are tired of worshipping things and never getting anything back… If you are hungry for something to truly satisfy that desire that is in you… He is calling you.
Simply stop where you are, cry out “Jesus save me, heal me, I now Worship You as my God and Savior. Come into my heart; forgive me for my stupid ways, I choose you! God if you are really there, I must know you right now. Shower me with your Love and fill the void in my life. Amen”
If you don’t think He exists or is real, that is alright… He is big enough to overcome that! Simply pray the prayer anyhow, what do you have to loose… if you were right and He isn’t real nothing will happen, but IF He is REAL don’t you want to know? Let Him reveal Himself to you, all you have to do is ask.
It is so easy to taste and see that He is good, most of the time we are afraid He will take from us like all the other things we have worshipped because that is what we know. It is different with Him, He actually wants to fill you and not take from you! You’ll only know after you pray to Him, He is calling you right now or you wouldn’t be reading this, just listen to His calling.
If you finished this and prayed, please let me know… I’d like to pray for you.
God Loves you despite the things you may have done, NOTHING can keep His Love from you… all you have to do is receive it and your life WILL change forever and ever!
God Bless you today!
