O Lord, our Lord, how excellent is Your name in all the earth,who have set your glory above the heavens! (Psalm 8:1)
Have you ever experienced spontaneous worship? It's a sudden lifting of the soul in praise and gratitude to God for Who He Is, and all that He is doing or has done. It can't be willed; rather I believe it occurs when a connection is made between our spirit and the indwelling Holy Spirit.
It's so easy to fake worship and go through the motions; to put on piety for the benefit of being seen. But God is not fooled by this. In Matthew 15:8 the scriptures prove that God sees: "These people draw near to Me with their mouth, And honor Me with their lips, But their heart is far from Me."
God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth." (John 4:24) No one but you and God will really know when your worship is done in spirit and truth. But you will know because the moments of joy you experience will be undeniable. There is such sweet freedom in this experience!
It's time to take your relationship deeper with Jesus Christ. "Draw near to God and He will draw near to you." (James 4:8) Then you will experience the joy of spontaneous worship!
