“Believe me, dear woman, the time has come when you will worship the Father neither on a mountain nor in Jerusalem, but in your heart. Your people don’t really know the One they worship, but we Jews worship out of our experience, for it’s from the Jews that salvation is available. From now on, worshiping the Father will not be a matter of the right place but with a right heart. For God is a Spirit, and he longs to have sincere worshipers who adore him in the realm of the Spirit and in truth.”
John 4:21-24 TPT
Many of us have been programmed to believe that worship looks a certain way, but to know Jesus and to step out of the box of religion, is to know that He isn't a one size fits all. God loves when the very people he created (all parts - the way he designed us) comes back to him in worship.
True worship looks like offering ourselves fully to God, not just our words or songs.
Prayerfully we can break out of that programming begin to know Him even more. When we do, it will drive us into beautiful worship. His beautiful spirit will even guide us into different ways to worship.
Sometimes worship looks like singing a song to the Lord.
Sometimes worship looks like sitting quietly with him at the very beginning of the day.
Sometimes worship looks like walking through a garden or outside in the cool of the morning with all focus on him opening your heart to more of who Jesus is.
Sometimes worship looks like writing out pages of prayers in worship.
Sometimes worship looks like staying back on a Sunday morning in your living room, seeking his face, putting all else down, just resting in him and singing him a new song from your heart.
Sometimes worship looks like pouring out your heart in awe of who he is with tears streaming down your face creating puddles on the floor.
Sometimes worship looks like grabbing your camera, paintbrush, instrument, pots (to cook), tools, yarn, notebooks and pen, creatively with all focus and eyes on him, embracing your true design, giving thanks for who he calls you, worshipping your way into his presence.
It's never about us or another being. It's about Jesus. Who HE is, and the price he paid for us. Its about true reverence for the Father and how He is a good good father. Its about humility where we exalt him above everything and bow down to the beautiful name JESUS.
Worship can be different for you day today, but just like God created all of us so differently and unique, there is no one way to worship. You can break out of the mold, if that's what you have believed, and allow yourself to be wild and free for Jesus
