Wow . . . I am SO glad you asked that!
Worship is not a performance! It is:
So, if you can't exactly carry a tune (in a bucket with a 10 foot pole), don't worry about it! If you don't know the first thing about what a note looks like . . . not to worry . . . it is what your HEART looks like before the Lord when you are thinking about Him!
THAT IS WORSHIP!!!!!
. . . and it could be standing, sitting, kneeling, twirling, laying prostate, doing dishes, driving a vehicle, sitting in an airplane, fishing off a pier, climbing a mountain, flying a kite with the kiddo's, you name it . . . you can worship your King any place, any time! Remember the Apostle Paul admonished us to pray without ceasing (1 Thess. 5:17) and worship IS a huge part of praying!
It matters not what it IS that you are facing:
Yes, we hurt. Yes, we 'feel' the devastation that comes along with event . . . BUT . . . when we make the choice to take the feeling before the Lord - when we choose to praise our God through the pain - that is where the enemy is defeated! That is where He restores our peace!
Job KNEW God was His source of all things, and continued to trust in Him always! "Though He slay me, yet I will trust Him." Job 13:15a NKJV
King David, time and time again, expressed his struggles, grief, pain, anger, sorrow, and joyous victory throughout the Psalms. He made the choice to worship the Lord through it all! Worship was his breakthrough warfare choice!
(for those who know me well, this will come as no surprise...) My favorite verses in the Bible are found in Habakkuk 3:17-19 "Though the fig tree may not blossom, Nor fruit be on the vines; Though the labor of the olive may fail, And the fields yield no food; Though the flock may be cut off from the fold, And there be no herd in the stalls--Yet I will rejoice in the Lord, I will joy in the God of my salvation. The Lord God is my strength; He will make my feet like deer's feet, And He will make me walk on my high hills." . . . No matter WHAT comes at me, I KNOW that God has my back . . . sure, I will feel the sting. And, yes, I may have a few tears, but I choose to get my worship on. I choose to get into His presence. I have found that in His presence the world begins to melt away and the Glory of His presence permeates my being like nothing else. His peace washes over me and He allows me to see things from His perspective.
WORSHIP BRINGS THE BREAKTHROUGH I NEED!!!!!
