Worship the Lord in the splendor of holiness; tremble before Him, all the earth. Psalm 96:9

He Alone is Worthy

There is excitement in praise and worship of God. When I praise and worship I've experienced in my own life a deep sense of a peace, release and relief that cannot be explained to a person not acquainted with Christ.

I include in my worship Jesus Christ. As the God/Man who is 100% Man and 100% God He is worthy of adoration, praise and worship. I worship Him for His obedience to His Father's will that led Him to became the perfect sacrifice for all sin. I worship Him for His death and resurrection. The first brought redemption from sin for the entire world and the second is the promise that all believers will be resurrected, either through translation or the grave (1st Thessalonians 4:16,17).

I worship the Holy Spirit who is also very God of very God. He was manifested in the early church as totally Divine. I worship Him for His powerful work in my life, bringing me growth and maturity in my daily life. He is the Comforter, He is always with me, He is my Protector, my Teacher, Intimate Friend, Confidant, Guide and Counselor.

All three Persons are One in essence and the only Ones worthy to be worshiped. No one and nothing else can ever be worthy to receive worship. God alone is worthy. We alone can give it. I cannot emphasize the exhilaration and joy there is in it. When worship is done with a willing heart it pleases God to the highest degree. When I worship I don't ask for anything I just quietly meditate my praise and adoration of the holiness, might and majesty of His powerful attributes. Most times I don't even speak but let my heart and mind go before God to honor and praise Him.

Giving praise, glory and worship to Him is the ultimate experience for believers. And it should be. It is a joy unparalleled in our life in Christ. When you worship Him begin by praising all He has done for you. Have you eaten today? Praise Him for supplying that need. Do you have shelter? Praise Him. Thank Him for His marvelous love and kindness. Worship Him. Meditate upon God's holy character, His power, majesty and His attributes. If you don't know what those attributes are do a search on the internet with 'attributes of God' in the browser. You'll be surprised at the many powerful facets of God's Person there are. It will astound and encourage you.

As you worship Him daily you will find God is so vast in His being that He is unsearchable yet totally fulfilling. Worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness. It is a beauty that is matchless. It is confirming, loving, sanctifying and complete. There is no other One like Him for only He is worthy to be worshiped. You can experience the beauty of God's holiness through worship. I encourage you to seek to do it. It will enrich you relationship with God Almighty and change your life.
