Worship The One Who Created You

God has created you in his image and after his likeness. God knew you before you entered your mother’s womb. God created you with a purpose and for a purpose. God loves you with an everlasting love. God is looking for you to be a worshipper of Him. God desires you to be a true worshipper.

The Bible states in John 4 that there was a woman who had five failed relationships. She encountered five failed marriages, yet that did not stop Jesus from seeing her with the eyes of love. She did not allow her past failures hinder her from receiving love from Christ. Jesus taught her about worship and she received the Word on Worship. Worship has many definitions.

Worship – The Greek words for “worship” in this verse is Proskuneo. Pros means in the direction of or towards, and kuneo is a word for kiss. It is a word of warm affection. Worship is showing affection to God.                                                                     

There is an English word worship that originates from an Old English word “worthship,” which was a word that denoted the worthiness of the one receiving the special honor or devotion. Worship is giving God his due worth.

Worship is giving God his due worth. To esteem to the worth, awe, adoration

Psalms 29:2                                                                                                                                   Give unto the Lord the glory due to His name; Worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness.

When you worship you give “worth” to something. It is to tell what it is worth. When you give to God something that is worth something to you- you are telling God you are worth more to me than the something you gave to God.

Worship is giving God all that you are and all that you have. Worship is receiving God’s love and responding to His love by serving Him with all of your passion through the gifts and talents that God has given you that will bring Him Honor.

Thanksgiving

History of Thanksgiving
Our founding father of America, George Washington, acknowledge God’s purpose of thanksgiving over this great nation. In October 1879 he made this humble declaration. Whereas it is the duty of all Nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey His will to grateful for his benefits, and humbly implore His protection and favor- and whereas both Houses of Congress have by their joint Committee to requested me to recommend to the People of the United States a Day of public thanksgiving and prayer to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many signal favors of the Almighty God especially by affording them and opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness.

Thanksgiving must have its root inside of you before it can bear fruit on the outside.
Thanksgiving is an expression of gratitude.
Thanksgiving is an attitude of appreciation and gratitude to God for something received from Him or for what He has done.

Three Reasons Why I Give God Thanks

I am thankful to God for sending His Only Son Jesus Christ to die on the cross for me. For God so the loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3:16

I am thankful that I can experience the good life that God has planned for me before I was even born.
For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them. Ephesians 2:10

I am thankful that the quality of life I can live now is better than the kind of life the world has to offer me. Jesus said “I have come that they may have life, and that they have it more abundantly. John 10:10

bible-07

What is in the Word? First I want you know The Word is the Word of God or the Bible. To answer the question the Word contain solutions for life. The Word of God is God’s love letter to mankind. The Word is a timeless book. The Word of God is the master key of life. It is a manual. It is a “how to” book. Whatever your needs or challenges are you can discover how to handle what you are experiencing in life. Solutions for marriage, family challenges, wisdom for life, parenting, finances, peace, restoration, health, business, just to name a few topics.
You may feel like that man who was reading a passage but needed someone to give him understanding. Acts 8: It is my prayer that God will lead you to the right place where you can get sound biblical answers to your questions in life.

It is also my prayer that before you read the Bible you should pray “Lord open up my eyes that I may see wonderful things out of your law(Word.)Psalms 119:18 It is also my prayer as you sit down you will make discoveries in God’s Word that whatever you lost will be recovered. Proverbs 24:14
The Word of God carries God’s life. When the Word of God comes into your life it begins to transform you. Your quality of life is upgraded.
II Peter 1:4 by which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.

Word of God carries God’s power. John 1:12 But as many as received him, to them gave them power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
Romans 1:16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.
God’s Word is God’s power in print.
The Word of God carries God’s Wisdom. Wisdom is correct application of knowledge.
II Timothy 3:15 and that from childhood you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.
Psalms 19:7 The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul;
The testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple;
Word of God carries God’s peace. The more knowledge of the truth of God’s Word you have, the more peace you will enjoy.
II Peter 1:2 Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord,
There is much more than the four areas I mention. I trust the four areas I address encouraged you.

Mary, The Mother of Jesus

32327-virgin-mary-1200_1200w_tn

Mary is known throughout history as the mother of Jesus Christ. In addition to being one of the most revered figures of modern Christianity, there are many lessons from her life that we can apply to guide us in our daily walk with God. By examining these aspects of her life we can come to better understand how God works through everyday people in order to bring his perfect will into the earth.

1. Promise- Mary was given a promise from God for her life. She was told she was highly favored, The Lord is with her and she is blessed among women. Luke 1:26-30
Just like Mary you are blessed and God has given you favor for your life. Genesis 1:28

Psalm 5:12
For You, O LORD, will bless the righteous;
With favor You will surround him as with a shield.

2. Prophetic Word – Mary was given a prophetic Word. She was told not to fear and that she was going to have a Son.
That her son is going to be Jesus and he is going to be great. He shall be called Son of the Highest. He shall be given a throne of his Father David. Luke 1:30-33

The Bible is book of prophesy. It is God’s inspired Word to man. It is God’s love letter for man.

II Peter 1:21 for prophecy never came by the will of man, but holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit.

II Timothy 3:16
All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness,

3. Perspective – Mary had a natural response. Then Mary said to the angel, “How can this be, since I do not know a man?” Luke 1:34

The difference maker in Mary is that she was willing to listen and not get stuck in her own thoughts, opinions, and feelings about her situation of how things should be, could be, suppose to be according to her own plan concerning her life.

4. Plan – God had a plan for Mary’s life. And the angel answered and said to her, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Highest will overshadow you; therefore, also, that Holy One who is to be born will be called the Son of God. Luke 1:35

The same God that gave the promise and prophetic Word for Mary has a plan for your life. The God given dreams that God has deposited in your heart he desires to birth out of you. As you consult with Him in prayer and with the Word of God. God desires to help you bring those things to pass.

Jeremiah 29:11
For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.

Psalm 37:23
The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD, And He delights in his way.

5. Power – For with God nothing will be impossible. Luke 1:37
God made his power available for her waiting to release it when she got in agreement through her submission to Him she surrendered from her own efforts.

What God desires to do in your life is based on your capacity to believe.

Jesus said to him, “If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes.”
Mark 9:23

6. Permission- God did not override Mary’s will. Then Mary said, “Behold the maidservant of the Lord! Let it be to me according to your word.” And the angel departed from her. Luke 1:38

God needed her permission and participation. What God desires to do through you He needs your permission and participation. Can two walk together except they be agreed. Amos 3:3
