Heart of Worship

"Praise the LORD. Praise God in his sanctuary; praise him in his mighty heavens. Praise him for his acts of power; praise him for his surpassing greatness. Praise him with the sounding of the trumpet, praise him with the harp and lyre, praise him with timbrel and dancing, praise him with the strings and pipe, praise him with the clash of cymbals... Let everything that has breath praise the LORD." Psalm 150

This psalm talks about praising God in different ways, with dance, different instruments,in different places or situations, and praising Him for what He has done, praising Him for His greatness. Let everything that has breath praise Him! It doesn't matter where or how we praise Him just that we do in the midst of any situation. Sometimes it is easy to praise God and sometimes it is really difficult. Trials and hard times can lead us away from God or cause us to forget the good things He has done for us. But remember that Praise comes from our hearts and that it is all about HIM. As I reflected on this Psalm and what Praise and Worship really mean I was reminded of the worship song, "Heart of Worship," as you read the lyrics really think about them...

Heart of Worship
When the music fades 
And all is stripped away 
And I simply come 
Longing just to bring 
Something that's of worth 
That will bless your heart 

I'll bring You more than a song 
For a song in itself 
Is not what You have required 
You search much deeper within 
Through the ways things appear 
You're looking into my heart 

I'm coming back to the heart of worship 
And it's all about You 
All about You, Jesus 
I'm sorry Lord for the thing I've made it 
When it's all about You 
It's all about You Jesus 

King of endless worth 
No one could express 
How much You deserve 
Though I'm weak and poor 
All I have is Yours 
Every single breath

Our Praise and Worship to Him needs to be completely about HIM. It has nothing to do with me or you or us... We need to realize that worship comes from the heart, from deep with in us. Not just a few songs we sing on Sunday. 
You have breath so praise HIM!... No, it doesn't have to be with song. It can be in your everyday coming and going. Think of ways that you can PRAISE Him today, in your present circumstances and your current situations... And remember its "All about You, Jesus."
