The Bible says that, in every thing we should give thanks to God. That is just praise God in the beauty of His holiness, just only one thing God demand from man, and that is praise and worship.
When you look at the Bible book of John chapter number (4:23-24). And it says But the hour is coming now is, when the true worshipers will worship Father in Spirit and in truth, for the Father is seeking such to worship Him. God is Spirit and those who worship Him, must worship in Spirit and in truth. We must know as believers, what it means by worshipping God in truth and in Spirit, that is what we are called to do as a child of God, and it must be a daily routine in our lives; it is just like prayer, but one can say how can I worship God daily ? You can do that at home, in the office, along the road and mainly in the house of God.
Some may say, how can I worship God in Spirit and in truth wherever I am? Yes you can, remember this, that worship is a powerful Spiritual excercise in any believers life, it is a thing of the heart that the physical count stop it. It is like a driven force that cannot be stopped and a fire that cannot be quench, that is in the inner man of every believers, once you are a true believer, there is always this force of doing the things of God aright and you don't even have the ability to resist it, unless you have fallen short of His glory, and you must also know that at that time you are no more a true believer.
When you look at the Bible carefully in the book of Joshua charpter number (6). That is the beginning of the revelation of this God's power in worshipping Him, when the children of ISREAL encounter the wall of Jericho as they are entering the promise Land, that looks like a contradiction to the promise God has given to them. The Bible describe Jericho that, the city is surrounded by wall, and the walls is like a community on its own, that there are residential houses all over the wall. Then God told JOSHUA the secret of His power, God instructed Joshua, gather the priest who will blow the hurn, match around the wall of the city the first day and say nothing, for six days and on the seventh day match around seven times and ask the priest to blow the hurn. And let all the people shout with a louder voice of victory and you will see My power. And by that instructions the children of Isreal obeyed and when they shouted that great shout, the Bible says that the walls of that great city fall down flat and the men enter the city and take over.
Now, what is that shout all about, it is praising, worshipping, adoration, total obedient and submittion to whom all power belongs, the "Almighty God" the only one that can make the inpossibility possible. And in the Bible book of second Chronicles charpter number (20:20-23). Which says that, So they arose early in the morning and went into the wilderness of Tekoa, and as they went out , Jehoshaphat stood and said, hear me O Judah and you inhabit of Jerusalem, Believe in the Lord your God and you shall be established; believe His prophets and you shall prosper, and when they have consulted with the people, he appointed those who should sing to the Lord and who should praise the beauty of His holiness, as they went out before the army and were saying. Praise the Lord for his Mercy endures forever. Now when they began to sing and to praise, the Lord set ambushes against the people of Ammon, Moab, and Mount Seir, who had come against Judah; and they were defeated. The Bible says that the people help to destroy themselves as the children of Isreal are praising and worshipping God. And that it come to pass that when the the Jehoshaphat and the men of Judah arrived at the seen, there were dead bodies of the enemies, and no one escape, and instead of fighting war, they were gadeing treasurs.
And when you look at the Bible book of Act of the Apostles chapter number (16:24-26). The Bible says that, because Paul and Silas were preaching the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ, they were arrested beaten, and were thrown into the prison, and they were chain hands and legs, but at midnight Paul and Silas began to praise and worship God in the prison instead of crying and complaining the Bible says that as they were praising God, the power of God came down from heaven and every chain binding them break off their hands and feet's and the prison foundation was shaken and all the iron Gates broke open. And the guards almost kill themselves if not still the help of Paul who say don't we are here.. The secret of the power of worship.
Now what is Spirit and what is truth ? In the Bible book of John chapter number (6:63). And it says that, It is the Spirit who gives life, the flesh profits nothing, the word that I speak to you are Spirit and they are Life. And in John chapter (17:17). Says Santify them by your truth the word is truth. The Bible is telling us here clearly that Jesus is the truth and the Spirit and is also life, in the Bible book of John chapter number (1:1-5). And it says that In the beginning was the word and the word was with God and the word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him nothing was made that was made. In Him was life and the life was the light of men and the light shines in dackness and the darkness comprehended it not.
Now to worship God in truth and in the Spirit, that means, to worship God according to His word. And it means to worship God with our body soul and Spirit. And we also have three ways of worshipping God.
It should come out of our mouths. "BODY" It should come out of our heart "SOUL". And it should also come from our inner man "SPIRIT" And we must worship God in holiness, we must get right with Him according to His word. Praising God, means exalt Him without reason, for it is good to give thanks unto the Lord, for in all things He will never shera His glory with any one.
If through praise and worship He fight battles in the old testament, and in the new testament He did the same, that is to say He is still the same today. If you have prayed and you think nothing is working why don't you apply His secret of power. The Bible say He is the same yesterday today and forever. He never change. Thank you once again for always being there for me. My God will bless you.
