Worship is our grateful and humble response to God, when patriarchs in the bible had an encounter with God their first response of God was to quickly move to worship God as their response. Think about it how do you respond always, when you meet God.
“We naturally respond to what we value to the most, Worship is our response to God”
“When the people saw the pillar of cloud standing at the door of the tent they would rise up and worship every men at his tent door”. Read Exodus 33:10, Exodus 34:8, Judges 7:15. The first thing they would do when hearing the words of God they would bow down or rent their clothes or bow down with their faces to the ground or kneel before God or stand in awe because for them worship was a response they had towards God.
Worship is our response both personal and corporately to God. Worship to us is like a reflex action you know how a reflex muscle works and to the people who lived in the bible worship was a reflex muscle, they would respond to the move of God and most of the times it was “promptly” or it is written ‘immediately’. When a muscle is stretched it also relates with others and moves a whole leg, so is it with worship.
Even John the Revelator in his book of Revelations 1:12 went on his knees and worshipped God because he had seen a vision of God whilst he was at the Isle of Patmos. Worship is a loving response that is balanced by the fear of the lord and it is a deepening response as the believer comes to know God better.
What do you do when God appears before you, what do you do when you get a revelation of who God. Another question is should you or can you worship God even without meeting Him? These are questions that you have to figure out and search into God to hear what He says about such a life. I would say that worship God even without a revelation of who He is but as you do, when you worship God cry and let your prayer be “to know him and his power thereof”
We worship God because we are responding to his move in our lives.
“Worship in the Beauty of His Holiness”
