WORSHIP IN THE WORD

 

I love reading through the Bible with a theme in mind. This time I was seeking different ways to Worship God woven throughout the Bible.

Worship in the Word:  June 2020

 

Worship in the Word:

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was formless and void, and darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was moving over the surface of the waters. Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light. Gen 1:1-3

 

There was no heavens, until You spoke

There was no earth, until You spoke

The earth was formless, until You spoke. 

The earth was dark, until You spoke.

Oh the power of Your voice Lord, Oh the power of Your words.

Oh the power of Your love, as You speak Your heart to me.

 

 

Worship in the Word

Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness;…  God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. Gen 1:26a &27

 

You made us in Your image Lord, You made us in Your likeness. 

Every people group from every nation, You created from Your heart.

Every people group from every nation, has Your DNA running through their veins.

Oh how You adore the variety of personalities, eyes, noses, skin color, and more.

Oh how You adore the variety of Your beloved, whom You made in Your image. 

 

 

Worship in the Word:

Then she (Hagar) called the name of the Lord who spoke to her, “You are a God who sees”; for she said, “Have I even remained alive here after seeing Him?” Gen 16:13

 

Lord, You alone see everything, nothing is ever hidden from You.

You see every injustice, and offer Your comfort. 

As we surrender injustice into Your hands, You will give us guidance.

Oh what comfort fills my heart, knowing nothing is hidden from You.

Yet when You see the hidden sin within my heart, You welcome my repentance.

 

 

Worship in the Word:

Now when Abram was ninety-nine years old, the Lord appeared to Abram and said to him,  “I am God Almighty; Walk before Me, and be blameless. Gen 17:1

You alone, are God Almighty.

Who is like You? No one.

Who cares for me as You do? No one.

In Your presence You’ve asked me to walk, what other god has ever done that?

How blessed I am to know and walk, with my El Shaddai.

 

 

Worship in the Word:

Is anything too difficult for the Lord? At the appointed time I will return to you, at this time next year, and Sarah will have a son.” Gen 18:14

I won’t make taking 20 minutes to decide which cloths to wear more important than taking 20 minutes to seek You

When faced with the unpleasant, and just wanting to just escape, I will say, “Yet not what I will, but what You will be done.”

When faced with Covid, loss of work, riots, and political uncertainty, and I just want to escape, I will say, Yet not what I will, but what You will be done.”

No matter the circumstance, I choose to say, “Not my will, but Yours be done”.

 

 

WORSHIP IN THE WORD: Keep watching and praying, so that you will not come into temptation; the spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak.” Mark 14:38

 

I will worship You with my eyes upon You.

I will worship You with my voice, my prayers.

I will worship You when I’m tired and when I’m wide awake.

I will worship You all throughout my day, and in doing so my soul and my flesh is strengthened. 

Oh Lord, may worshiping You be as consistent as breathing.

 

 

WORSHIP IN THE WORD: Joseph bought a linen cloth, took Him down, wrapped Him in the linen cloth, and laid Him in a tomb which had been cut out in the rock; and he rolled a stone against the entrance of the tomb. Mark 15:46

 

Oh Lord, what was it like for Joseph to hold You in his arms, and wrap You with a Linen cloth?

Was he worshiping Your Father as he did this? Was he worshiping in the midst of his sorrow and pain?

Did he know that You would be resurrected in three days?

Lord, in the midst of the unknown, with every fiber of my being I will choose to keep trusting Your words and promises.

When it looks like You are nowhere to be found and I can’t hear Your voice, with every fiber of my being I will choose to keep trusting Your words and promises.

 

 

WORSHIP IN THE WORD: And when they heard that He was alive and had been seen by her, they refused to believe it. Mark 16:11

 

Oh Lord, when it comes to You, I choose to believe the unbelievable. 

When it comes to You, nothing is impossible.

When it comes to Your Word and Your promises, I choose to believe.

Oh Lord, I never want to be one who refuses to believe testimonies of what You are doing. I choose to believe, even when I may not totally understand.

 

 

WORSHIP IN THE WORD: For nothing will be impossible with God.” Luke 1:37

 

Oh Lord, what very, very powerful words.

Throughout the Bible I read of the impossibilities becoming possible.

More Lord, more! I want this to become a part of who I am in You.

Open my eyes an my heart to receive more impossibilities becoming possible.

May there be an explosion in my life, in my country, and in every nation, of impossibilities becoming possible because of Your will.

I choose to welcome and embrace all the possibilities, that will come my way today. 

 

 

WORSHIP IN THE WORD: But Jesus Himself would often slip away to the wilderness and pray. Luke 5:16

 

Oh Lord, You lived to communicate with Your Father. Why do I live?

Nothing, absolutely nothing can come between You Lord, and my slipping away to be with You.

You are on my mind throughout my day, and my desire is to be continuously in communication with You every hour of every day.

But just as Jesus had to physically get away often to be alone with You, so do I.

You are my voice, my strength, my love, my joy, my guidance, my everything.

You are worthy of me making special time just for You.

Without being in continuous communication with You Lord, my life can easily be in the flesh.

Oh Lord, I don’t want to live in the flesh, I want to live in You.

 

 

WORSHIP IN THE WORD: for the Holy Spirit will teach you in that very hour what you ought to say.” LUKE 12:12

 

Oh Holy Spirit, how I come to depend on Your voice speaking through my voice.

You are so dependable, I can always count on You.

If You don’t speak, I don’t speak.

I choose to trust in You, in Your timing, and in Your words.

It’s not always easy, but always beneficial, when I choose to allow You to teach me what I’m to say at any given time.

 

 

WORSHIP IN THE WORD: It happened that when He went into the house of one of the leaders of the Pharisees on the Sabbath to eat bread, they were watching Him closely. Luke 14:1

 

Lord, I marvel at how many times You ate with the Pharisees, who You knew didn’t like You.

You never shy away from uncomfortable situations, and oh how I admire that about You Lord.

Teach me Lord, not to be fearful of those who don’t like You, but to be bold and go where You call me to go, do what You call me to do, and say what You call me to say.

What an amazing example You are to me Jesus. I never tire of being reminded of how I am to imitate You in my daily life.

 

 

WORSHIP IN THE WORD: So the Samaritan woman said to Him, “How is it that You, though You are a Jew, are asking me for a drink, though I am a Samaritan woman?” (For Jews do not associate with Samaritans.) John 4:9

 

Oh Lord, You broke so many religious rules while You walked this earth.

I want to be like You, free from religious bondage, free from what others might say or think.

I want to go and do as my heavenly Father leads, just like You did.

You truly are my role model Jesus, and how blessed I am to have You in my heart and in my life.

 

 

WORSHIP IN THE WORD: Many more believed because of His word; and they were saying to the woman, “It is no longer because of what you said that we believe, for we have heard for ourselves and know that this One truly is the Savior of the world.” John 4:41-42

 

 

WORSHIP IN THE WORD: Therefore Jesus answered and was saying to them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, the Son can do nothing of Himself, unless it is something He sees the Father doing; for whatever the Father does, these things the Son also does in the same way. John 5:19

 

Oh Jesus, the desire of my heart is to be as close to Your Father as You were when on earth. 

Was it easy for You Jesus? It’s not always easy for me.

But because You are my example, I know it can be done.

No matter how many times I’ve not succeeded in following Your example, I will continue to make it my goal in life.

What joy there is when I choose to do what my Father is doing, or to say what He says.

 

 

WORSHIP IN THE WORD: For not even the Father judges anyone, but He has given all judgment to the Son, so that all will honor the Son just as they honor the Father. The one who does not honor the Son does not honor the Father who sent Him. John 5:22-23

 

All honor goes to You Jesus, to my Heavenly Father, and to His Spirit, my precious Holy Spirit.

You are a packaged deal, there is not one without the others.

Oh how blessed I am to know all three, my beautiful triune God.

How blessed I am to hear You when You speak, because that is Your desire.

 

 

WORSHIP IN THE WORD: Jesus then took the loaves, and after giving thanks He distributed them to those who were reclining; likewise also of the fish, as much as they wanted. John 6:11

 

Oh Lord, You are not a God of barely enough, You are a God of plenty.

Why do I too often ask for just barely enough, when You are a God of abundance?

Your  compassion, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, and amazingness never ceases to touch my heart.

 

 

WORSHIP IN THE WORD: So Jesus, aware that they intended to come and take Him by force to make Him king, withdrew again to the mountain by Himself, alone. John 6:15

 

Oh Lord, You knew what You needed, time alone with Your Father, and You made it happen.

You didn’t spend every waking minute teaching and ministering to others.

You didn’t allow the praise and desire of others to change Your plans.

Oh how I admire Your tenacity to continually be listening and obeying Holy Spirit’s leading.

 

 

WORSHIP IN THE WORD: The one who has My commandments and keeps them is the one who loves Me; and the one who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and will reveal Myself to him.” John 14:21

 

Oh Lord, how can I show You I love you? Obedience, plain and simple.

I don’t want to just say, “I love You Lord”, I want to show it.

Every day Lord, I choose to obey You, and to obey Your Word.

When I mess up, You forgive me, because that’s who You are.

The desire of my heart is to read Your Word, so I know what You desire me to do, and then do it.

You alone Lord deserve my obedience, my love. You alone are worthy of that sacrifice every day.

 

 

WORSHIP IN THE WORD: And this is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent. John 17:3

 

Oh Lord, it thrills my heart that you want me to know You.

As I seek You, You reveal more of Yourself to me.

As I go about my day, You open my eyes and heart to know You more.

You, creator of everything, seek relationship with “me”, that is so awesome and humbling. 

Knowing someone takes time, engaging, communicating, effort, willingness, and tenacity.

Knowing You Lord, also takes a willingness to look stupid when you’re talking to someone who no one can see.

Whatever it takes to know You more, I will do, as my heart compels me too.

 

 

WORSHIP IN THE WORD: you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be My witnesses both in Jerusalem and in all Judea, and Samaria, and as far as the remotest part of the earth. Acts 1:8

 

Oh Lord, I’m so grateful for Holy Spirit. 

You never planned for us to do what You’ve called us to do in our own strength.

You planned all along that we would walk in power “when” Holy Spirit comes upon us.

Holy Spirit, You are so amazingly versatile in what You do, and how You manifest.

Holy Spirit, here I am, arms wide open and heart surrendered, ready to receive Your power anytime, anywhere.

What a loving God You are, to bless us with Your Spirit, to be with us all the time.

 

 

WORDS OF WORSHIP: You have made known to me the ways of life; You will make me full of gladness with Your presence.’ Acts 2:28

 

Oh Lord, in Your presence is all we ever need.

No amount of money can buy what we can receive in Your presence.

Forgive me Lord, for choosing at times to spend more time in the presence of others, without even spending any time, purposely in just Your presence.

It’s in Your presence that You make known to me, not only the path of my life, but so many other things I need to know.

Oh what pure delight there is, in Your presence Lord.

 

 

WORSHIP IN THE WORD: Now as they observed the confidence of Peter and John and understood that they were uneducated and untrained men, they were amazed, and began to recognize them as having been with Jesus. Acts 4:13

 

Oh Lord, I want to be recognized as being with You.

I want my life today to different, because I’ve been with You.

Jesus, You give confidence to those who have been with You.

Oh Lord, my being with You is all that’s needed, for my life and those around me to be forever changed.

 

 

WORSHIP IN THE WORD: But some men from what was called the Synagogue of the Freedmen, including both Cyrenians and Alexandrians, and some from Cilicia and Asia, rose up and argued with Stephen. But they were unable to cope with his wisdom and the Spirit by whom he was speaking. Acts 6:9-10

 

Oh Lord, I love how You equip Your beloveds children.

I marvel at the extent You go to on a regular basis, to prepare us for what You’ve called us to do.

When I choose to allow Holy Spirit to speak through me, miracles happen, how can they not?

Oh Lord, life with You is certainly not boring.

 

 

WORSHIP IN THE WORD: Therefore let it be known to you, brothers, that through Him forgiveness of sins is proclaimed to you, and through Him everyone who believes is freed from all things, from which you could not be freed through the Law of Moses..  Acts 13:28-29   

 

Freedom comes through You alone Lord.

Freedom to rest in the midst of chaos.

Freedom from a life of sin.

Freedom from guilt and shame.

Freedom to be all God created me to be.

 

 

WORSHIP IN THE WORD: And the disciples were continually filled with joy and with the Holy Spirit. Acts 13:52

 

Oh Lord, You are the source of joy.

You are the source of being continually filled with Holy Spirit.

You are the source of knowledge and wisdom.

You are the source of peace.

You, and You alone are the source for everything I need in life.

 

 

WORSHIP IN THE WORD: But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Rom 5:8

 

Your love God, Your love is like no other.

We don’t have to get our act together before You love us.

You loved, when most everyone around You at the time hated You.

You continue to love, every hour of every day.

How can I not love back someone who loves like this?

Oh Lord, the desire of my heart, is to grow in Your love.

 

 

WORSHIP IN THE WORD: For the wages of sin is death, but the gracious gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. Rom 6:23

 

Money can’t buy Your eternal life, blessings, love, joy, peace, or knowing You personally.

It’s all Your precious gift to those who believe.

Oh Jesus, what a precious gift You are to me.

Loving You, knowing You is life to me.

And oh Lord, the eternal life You have planned for us who believe, WOW!

And this precious gift of eternal life, starts when we believe in You Jesus. It just doesn’t get much better than that.

 

WORSHIP IN THE WORD: And later Isaiah spoke boldly for God, saying,  “I was found by people who were not looking for me. I showed myself to those who were not asking for me.” Rom 10:20

 

Oh Lord, I love this verse, I love this about You.

There is so much hope in this verse for unsaved loved ones.

I just marvel at Your goodness, You are so amazing.

 

 

WORSHIP IN THE WORD: Since God in his wisdom saw to it that the world would never know him through human wisdom, he has used our foolish preaching to save those who believe. 1 Cor. 1:21

 

Oh Lord, just like money can’t buy Your blessings, neither can education buy knowing You.

You Lord, have seen to it that anyone who wants to know You can.

You have seen to it that the poorest of the poor has the opportunity to know more about you than all the scholars in the world.

Knowing You Lord, really knowing You, will be an eternal journey of pure bliss.

 

 

WORSHIP IN THE WORD: That is what the Scriptures mean when they say,  “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love him.” 1 Cor 2:9

 

Oh how exciting it is for those of us who Love our Lord.

Every day is filled with glorious uncertainties and possibilities from You, our beloved Father.

Oh Lord, You bring hope, life, dreams, and endless possibilities to me every day of my life. How truly blessed I am.

 

 

WORSHIP IN THE WORD: When we tell you these things, we do not use words that come from human wisdom. Instead, we speak words given to us by the Spirit, using the Spirit’s words to explain spiritual truths. 1Cor 2:13

 

What a blessed way to live Lord.

What a blessed way to teach, preach, and pray. Your words, not mine.

Oh what power is released when we speak only what Holy Spirit gives us.

 

 

WORSHIP IN THE WORD: That is why we never give up. Though our bodies are dying, our spirits are being renewed every day. 2 Cor 4:16

 

Even though my body ages daily, and some days it seems like more than others, my spirit is renewed in You Lord.

Many times as I sit with You Lord, I feel like a little girl receiving life in my spirit.

At times my body is doing a “happy dance” of joy, even while sitting, as You renew my spirit with more of You.

My spirit never ages with You Lord, it just gets younger, fuller, more excited, more joyful, hopeful, peaceful, and more full of life.

 

 

WORSHIP IN THE WORD: So we don’t look at the troubles we can see now; rather, we fix our gaze on things that cannot be seen. For the things we see now will soon be gone, but the things we cannot see will last forever. 2 Cor 4:18

 

So Lord, I will choose to fix my gaze upon You, and not the sickness and despair that is all around me.

I choose to fix my gaze on the things of You, that cannot be seen with my eyes.

So I will fix my eyes on Your love, peace, joy, blessings, promises, comfort, eternal life, freedom, strength, purpose, truth, and glory.

I choose to fix my eyes on Your face Jesus, before looking around me.

 

 

WORSHIP IN THE WORD: The son of the slave wife was born in a human attempt to bring about the fulfillment of God’s promise. But the son of the freeborn wife was born as God’s own fulfillment of his promise. Gal 4:23

 

Oh Lord, Your promises are perfect, and Your timing is perfect.

Oh Lord, I surrender to You, I want You to fulfill Your promises to me in Your perfect timing, and I will stop trying to make it happen in my timing.

I trust You Lord, You are faithful, Your timing is perfect, and I will rejoice.

 

 

WORSHIP IN THE WORD: Because of Christ and our faith in him, we can now come boldly and confidently into God’s presence. Eph 3:12

 

Oh Lord, it’s hard to imagine just how much You love me.

You welcome me with open arms into Your presence anytime I want.

No fear, no shame, no embarrassment, no head down, but confidently I come to You.

You always welcome me, You never turn me away.

In You Lord, in Your presence is my heart’s desire, and that where I want to stay.

 

 

WORSHIP IN THE WORD: Imitate God, therefore, in everything you do, because you are his dear children. Eph 5:1

 

Just like small children usually imitate their parents, or the ones who raise them, so I want to imitate You Lord.

You tough are like no earthly parent, for You are perfect, and You are always worthy of being imitated.

To truly imitate You, I need to spend time being around You.

It is pure joy learning to imitate You Lord, as I get to know You more and more. 

 

 

WORSHIP IN THE WORD: Put on your new nature, and be renewed as you learn to know your Creator and become like him. Col 3:10

 

Oh Lord, I marvel again at how deeply You want me to know You, and how deeply you want me to be like You.

Oh how I wish putting on my new nature were as easy as putting on a sweater, and just not taking it off.

I wonder what goes on in Your mind Lord, when you see my new nature being put on and then taken off so often.

But You never scold or shame Me Lord, You are so full of love and encouragement.

Your love continues to put within me a deep desire to know You more, and become more like You every day. 

 

 

WORSHIP IN THE WORD: You know how badly we had been treated at Philippi just before we came to you and how much we suffered there. Yet our God gave us the courage to declare his Good News to you boldly, in spite of great opposition. 1 Thess 2:2

 

Yet God, yet God, yet God!

No matter our circumstances, yet God gives courage.

No matter our pain, yet God gives courage

In You Lord is the answer to my need, right when I need it.

Yet God’s love, yet God’s peace, yet God’s strength, yet God’s courage, yet God’s freedom, yet God’s righteousness, yet God’s truth, it’s not over until God says it’s over.

Oh Lord, You are just so amazing, and worthy of my love and faithfulness in trusting You.

 

 

WORSHIP IN THE WORD: Indeed, you already show your love for all the believers throughout Macedonia. Even so, dear brothers and sisters, we urge you to love them even more. 1 Thess 4:10

 

Oh Lord, Your love for me is endless.

And Your desire for me, is to love others more.

I can’t do this by myself Lord. Yet the more I love You, and the more I allow Your love to flow through me, the more I can love others.

Oh the possibilities, when I allow Your love to consume me.

 

 

WORSHIP IN THE WORD: And it is impossible to please God without faith. Anyone who wants to come to him must believe that God exists and that he rewards those who sincerely seek him. Heb 11:6

 

Oh Lord, the desire of my heart is to have complete faith in You, always and no matter what.

Why? Because You’re God, who better to trust and have faith in?

It baffles my mind God that You want to reward me, for doing what thrills my heart, and that is seeking You.

Oh how I praise Your name, for being so generous with Your blessings and your rewards.

 

 

WORSHIP IN THE WORD: By faith these people overthrew kingdoms, ruled with justice, and received what God had promised them. They shut the mouths of lions,  quenched the flames of fire, and escaped death by the edge of the sword. Their weakness was turned to strength. They became strong in battle and put whole armies to flight. Women received their loved ones back again from death. Heb 11:33-35

 

Wow God, when I have faith in You, absolutely anything is possible.

Forgive me Lord when I forget, just how amazing and faithful You are.

 

 

WORSHIP IN THE WORD: Since we are receiving a Kingdom that is unshakable, let us be thankful and please God by worshiping him with holy fear (reverence) and awe. Heb 12:28

 

Oh Lord, the desire of my heart is to worship You the way You want me to.

Holy Spirit, I surrender to Your leading when I worship my God.

Oh God, I want to please You with my worship; teach me to please You.

 You are so worthy of my whole spirit, soul and body worshiping You the way You desire, worshiping You in holy reverence and awe. 

 

 

WORSHIP IN THE WORD: And then I heard every creature in heaven and on earth and under the earth and in the sea. They sang: “Blessing and honor and glory and power belong to the one sitting on the throne and to the Lamb forever and ever.” Rev. 5:13

 

Oh Lord, what a glorious day that will be.

I can’t even imagine the sound of every creature singing praises to You.

I know I don’t understand all that will happen, but wow, I sure look forward to this.

You are so worthy Lord of such honor and praise.

 

 

WORSHIP IN THE WORD: They sang, “Amen! Blessing and glory and wisdom and thanksgiving and honor and power and strength belong to our God forever and ever! Amen.” Rev 7:12
