Worship Is Like A Courtship
Many times you say that you are honoring and reverencing God but yet you do not have a clue as to the true meaning or essence of the words. God is so awesome, faithful, loving and holy that it should not be so hard for you to understand or to do. However, many have not had the experience to shower actually down their love on the Master, for they are too busy asking Him to shower down on them. He is the one whose name you should be calling, you feel me. He is the really true man and lover. You understand courting when it comes to a relationship with somebody, but that same technique needs to be mastered when it comes to the Lord. You were made in the image and likeness of Him, so what you like, He likes. The way you desire and want to be loved, so does the Lord. You embrace, court, admire, and become intimate with the one you love but yet you have failed to court Him, righteously.
Men usually bow down and get on one knee to propose for courtship and in making a covenant for a relationship with the one he loves. You tend to find it so difficult to bow down and get on your knees unto the Lord. You say you love HIM so dearly yet He is kept so far and at a distance most times. You hardly or seldom know what or how to say what you want or need to Him. Maybe your love is motivated by the wrong motives or obligations. Maybe you do not understand the true meaning of love and adoration; and you operate according to the way people have led you to believe what they are. However, love (God) has always been in a place of its own, waiting for whomever to come and just touch, believe, use and understand.
The Lord is waiting for that relationship of intimacy with you and has been for a very long time. You know how you draw close to someone for a moment and then you say that it is too good to be true? You later pull away because you cannot believe that anyone could embrace you or have that strong of affection towards you. You hold back and withdraw, never getting to experience that moment again if ever. The intimate relationship that we so often seek after is right there with open arms awaiting your arrival at the throne room of your own privacy and moment. This is what God is saying and wanting right now from you. He longs, as you long and hunger for you to touch Him, as He touches you back. He wants you to come and open up to Him as He gently moves around, upon and in you. The Lord will revive you, awaken your slumber soul and weary spirit, when you allow yourself to have the encounter of intimacy with Him.
Whisper to Him or loudly declare how much you desire and need more of Him. Tell Him how good He has been and yet is. Let Him Know how He makes you feel. Your desires will spill over into such an emotional upheaval that nothing could deter you from reaching out and telling Him. You will tell Him how awesome He is and how much He is appreciated, loved, and adored. His love is as powerful, as it is frightening, to the one who has never experienced, understood or embraced it back. It overtakes and overshadows you that it leaves you in awe. You willnot be able to help it, and bow down to the affect, pouring out your adoration towards Him, as you would a lover. You need a close encounter with Him, even now. Stop pulling away and be free to express your feelings to your Lord. Let go and watch God.
You will worship your children, spouses, animals, lovers, houses and things that are temporal and leave you with a temporary jolt. You believe somehow that it is not needed as much with the Lord but that is the farthest from the truth. He needs and wants it even the more. The invisibility of His nature causes you to feel somewhat awkward, wondering if you are heard by Him, when praised. However, the eternal and internal affect from His love will leave a lasting impression that you would be moved to worship and submit to Him. It is just that powerful and God is just that awesome for such honor.
God exhibits that kind of love that you have long awaited and cried out for. The love that does not hurt, refuse or deny. His love is agape, and ever so lasting that you will immediately throw up your hands in glee and satisfaction, returning the favor. His love evokes the love from you as you adore His approach, sovereignty and faithfulness. Your inner being will be renewed and rejuvenated to the point of exuberance as the connection with your soul mate. You need to be more assertive in your approach unto the Lord, without always waiting for Him to touch you first. Why not allow yourself the opportunity to release the fears and tear down the walls; to have a time of your life, in a world of your own, in a place of your own choosing, to finally get it on with the Lord. WORSHIP THE LORD IN THE BEAUTY OF HOLINESS! Today is a great day!
