God wants to be a part of our lives everyday.
Reference: “As for me, I will always have hope; I will praise you more and more.” Psalm 71:14 NIV
Explore: Being a worship leader at church is a tricky job. Many people do it, but few do it well.
The challenge is to help people connect with God through corporately sung songs. While everyone is singing the same song, each individual is coming to worship from a different perspective.
Some people have had a fabulous week. They come to worship in thanks to a generous God.
Some people have had a terrible week. They come to worship in desperation for a comforting God.
With such diversity it is a challenge to bring everyone into the same place of worship.
Application: And that’s where our God is so wonderful. No matter where we are at, He wants to connect with us.
When life is great, come to God.
When life is complicated, come to God.
When life is broken, come to God.
When life is refreshing, come to God.
When life is monotonous, come to God.
We can often fall into the habit of only coming to God when we need help. Or only coming to God when life is fabulous.
God wants to be a part of our lives everyday. The Psalmists praised God even when they felt surrounded by enemies.
Let’s not let our circumstance determine our relationship with God. In all things, and at all times, let’s praise our God.
Prayer: Lord, every day Your grace is new. May we worship You wherever we find ourselves. Amen.
When do you find it challenging to worship God?
