"Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all ye lands. Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name."
(Psalms 100:1, 4 KJV)
"Sing unto God, sing praises to his name: extol him that rideth upon the heavens by his name JAH, and rejoice before him."
(Psalms 68:4 KJV)
The best way to start a day is with praise and worship for Our Awesome God. It always begins the day on a positive note and we usually find that, at the end of a day, the day has been productive. Sometimes, we get all tense knowing some of the obstacles in our paths for a certain day. We do better if we start all days with a small worship service of our own. Read His Holy Bible, pick a praise Psalm and read it, tell our Father the problems you are concerned about, sing praises to Jesus Christ and lay your problems at Jesus' feet.
This sharing of your concerns with Someone who can do something about the problem will relieve that tension you have and you'll feel better. Knowing that Our Awesome God loves us (1 John 4:10) and does all things for our good (Romans 8:28) gives us great comfort in the tumult of this world. He keeps His promises and is always there with a strong arm to help us. We need to remind ourselves of His love, faithfulness and righteousness. So we should have a daily worship for Our Awesome God as we begin each day. Plan for it!! Make it happen.
You can vary your worship service as you want and need, using Our Awesome God's promises, praise songs, His attributes, Jesus Christ's love for us and naming the things God has done. We humans tend to forget what God has promised and done for us and we can become discouraged when we have problems. But if you dedicate a regular time every day to hold a personal worship period, it will keep you closer to Our Awesome God and remind you of His power and love. It will make your day more peaceful and less tense to live when you start it by worshipping God.
We (as a church) want all people in church, worshipping Our Awesome God with faith and obedience every Sunday. If you are not yet a Christian, it is time that you should know and love Our Awesome God as your Creator and Savior. Join us at Living Word Baptist Church as we pray and worship Him this Sunday at 10:30 AM and at 6:00 PM for Bible Study along with AWANA for children 7:30 PM. On Wednesdays, we meet at 7:00 PM for Prayer Requests and a Bible Study follows until 8:00 PM. We love visitors!
