Psalm 105:1-4 Give thanks to the LORD! Call upon His name; Make known His deeds! 2 Sing to Him; Talk of His wondrous works! 3Glory is in His name; Let the hearts of those rejoice who seek the LORD! 4 Seek the LORD and His strength; Seek His face evermore!
I can’t begin to tell you how much worship has changed my life. I know this probably isn’t new information for you, and I am sure you’ve heard me say it so much that you are wary of hearing it. Even so, I am going to keep saying it until everyone I know is convinced that this is a TRUTH they can’t live without. Worship is different from singing. In fact, worship is different from praise. A lot of people praise Jesus, but only those in an intimate relationship with Him learn the secret of worship. Praise can be accomplished from a distance, but worship must be done up close. Praise can get you to His hand, but worship gets you to His face, and His face is what He wants you to find. SO, let me let you in on a few truths I’ve learned while in pursuit of worship; His face.
Praise is an “outer” court exercise. Just about everybody has done it, but it can be a trap for us. You see, a lot of people seek His hand, but only hungry worshippers seek His face. Often times when you seek His face, you will get His hand; but never in the opposite order. “Face Seekers” have settled in their hearts that “He is enough!” What does all of that mean? Simply put, healing doesn’t come because we worship healing; it comes when we worship Him. Transformation doesn’t come when we worship change, it comes when we worship Him. Revival doesn’t come when we worship a move of God, it comes when we worship God. Healing, transformation, and revival will only come to the people of God when we decide to seek His face. His face is what we need, and His face must be what we are after.
