The Power of Worship


by Gail Rodgers

As we walk through these challenging days of change in our world, both globally and personally, I am amazed with the direction the Lord gives us in His word. I was comforted by the fact that God has already let us know in Hebrews 12:26 that everything that can be shaken will be shaken so that only that which cannot be shaken will stand.

We are certainly feeling that shaking! But then I noticed that God goes on to record for us just exactly how we are to respond when this is happening. He says…

Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us be thankful, and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe, for our God is a consuming fire.Hebrews 12:28 & 29

It’s really pretty straight forward. Our response is to live thankfully and with worship in our hearts and on our lips.

I thought about how to worship God on a Monday morning as we run our various ways and I was reminded of a study John’s cousin, Pat, did on the names of God. It would be a perfect way to focus on the amazing majesty of who our God is so that our hearts will be more inclined to focus on worship as we walk through uncertain days.

So join me, as we start tomorrow, and look at a different name of God every day and steep in the depth of the riches that are within each name.

Let’s let worship change the way we walk. I hope you will share your insights as we share the journey.
