Lift Up Your Hands

Then Solomon stood before the altar of the Lord in the presence of all the assembly of Israel, and spread out his hands toward heaven;  (I Kings 8:22) (NKJV)



Let us search out and examine our ways, And turn back to the Lord; Let us lift our hearts and hands To God in heaven.  (Lamentations 3:40-41) (NKJV)



Lifting hands is just one of the ways God has given…

Worshipping From The Heart



How We Worship Reason 1

There are so many reason how we worship and I have realised that there are so many of them but if all of our worship isn't based from the heart we are busy self entertaining. 

 

Our bodies are the temples of the Holy Spirit and our hearts are the altars of…

1 John 4:1-6

1John 4:

1 Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, for many false prophets have gone out into the world.

2 By this you know the Spirit of God: every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God,

3 and every spirit that does not confess Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you heard was coming and now is in the world already.

4 Little children, you are from…

Religious Experience or Experiencing God?

Where Is Your Worship?



In my book I devote several chapters to the reasons some people sit in church and miss worship. The reasons are many and varied, but we'll be reminded of one of them in today's devotional. Tradition, i.e., "religious experience" is one of the main reasons people miss worship every Sunday. There are people who come to church on Sunday simply because it seems to be the right thing to do; surrendering to God in true worship…

Praising God Without Evidence

Then this message came to Jeremiah from the LORD: "I am the LORD, the God of all the peoples of the world. Is anything too hard for me?" Jeremiah 32:27 (NLT)



A while back I wrote a devotional called, Praising God Ahead of Schedule. The point was to remind us that we can praise God before the blessing comes - before what we have prayed about…

What Worship Is All About

Worship is the central part of God and heaven but is the most misunderstood part of human life. Someone once wrote if it’s a pattern of heaven then we should emulate it in our lives but when we look around creation in worshipping but man is walking with worship of self or desire to worship God but do not know why.

 

Worship isn’t just an idea, a person, or a thing it is a lifestyle that God has called us to leave. Genesis 1 speaks about the mandate of man multiply,…

Understanding Worship

How can we recognize authentic worship, and how can we make sure that we as individuals are authentic in worshipping our Almighty God?  Is there a particular style or form of worship that is more authentic than any other?  Is there something that can be measured or seen in authentic worship?   What is the focus of authentic worship, and what should be our understanding of what the word ‘worship’ really means?  How can our church experience the kind of dynamic worship that blows the doors off…

Excerpt from "Relevance in Worship Ministry"

The message of the gospel is always relevant.  God’s love and mercy alwaysmatters.  The problem of perceived irrelevance has never been about the message itself.  When it comes to our relevance in sharing spiritual truth, what we do relationally and the message that we project to those around us (through our lives, our words, our posture, our attitudes, our musical preparation and choices, and even the expressions on our faces) impacts their willingness to hear the message…

My Expectation

But as for me, I will watch expectantly for the Lord; I will wait for the God of my salvation.  My God will hear me.  Do not rejoice over me, O my enemy.  Though I fall I will rise; Though I dwell in darkness, the Lord is a light for me.  Micah 7:7-8

Change Your Song

For there our captors demanded of us songs, And our tormentors mirth, saying, "Sing us one of the songs of Zion."  How can we sing the Lord's song In a foreign land?     (Psalm 137:3-4) (NASB)

Anchor Worship Musicians

(Originally written 12th Jan 2011)

It would be great if every musician in your church worship team knew how to anchor the worship music. By that I mean:



  • they are all able to read where the congregation dynamics are headed,



  • they all know how to cue the worship leader and congregation to start singing,…
