When I discovered my calling in worship I was so hungry and thirsty to know what worship is all about by as I spoke with other worshippers I got frustrated by the answers that they gave to me, because the answers that they have me were merely words and people’s experiences, few where teaching me about the importance of the Holy Spirit in worship
It wasn’t to last a few years later that I learnt the work of the Holy Spirit. It’s good to know people’s experiences in worship but do not make them the basis of your understanding of worship. Use the word as your basis to understand worship and its importance.
“Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come. He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you”, John 16:13-14
1. He will guide you into all truth
“But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him”, 1 John 2:27
“But ye have an unction from the Holy One, and ye know all things”, 1 John 2:20
The Holy Spirit is the Teacher he will teach us all things not just of the physical world but also of the spirit world. If he will teach us all things can’t we not ask to be taught to worship in the manner that God desires to be worshipped.
2. For he shall not speak of himself but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak
The Holy Spirit is teacher and all that he teaches he teaches out of God. Jesus said all that I do I see my Father doing and in this scripture we learn that all that the Holy Spirit will teach us shall come from God. Let the cry of our hearts be that we learn and become accustomed to the worship of God
How many of us have ever asked the Holy Spirit to teach us the sound and worship of heaven? Have we ever availed ourselves to know from God the manner by which he desires to be glorified?
3. He will show you things to come
He is endowed with the ability to know the things of heaven, He has insight of the move and the things of God. God is the same yesterday today and tomorrow but have you noticed that God evolves daily.
The Holy Spirit knows the things to come and we need to learn to follow the Holy Spirit so that we may know how to bring things in that are in the future and bring them into the present through worship. The season is now that we as worshippers pray that we may see as the Holy Spirit see and hear as he hears to that we may worship in the prophetic and institute things by the spirit of god and this can only be done through the spirit of God
4. He shall glorify me
“Wherefore I give you to understand, that no man speaking by the Spirit of God calleth Jesus accursed: and that no man can say that Jesus is the Lord, but by the Holy Ghost”, 1 Corinthians 12:3
Glorify means to bless, to honour, to magnify and the Holy Spirit shall do all it work to bless God, so even in our worship the Holy Spirit will work to glorify God, so as he guides us he only intention is to glorify God. So when we worship with the Holy Spirit you are guaranteed encountering God because the Holy Spirit’s objective is to glorify God, so when we stand beside him we will end up blessing God in all directions with the direction and leading of the Spirit.
5. For he shall receive of mine, and shall show it unto you
Whatever God extends to the Holy Spirit that which he will also reveal to us. The word show there means reveal, speak, tell announce. How much of God has his Spirit shown you? One man wrote that it’s quite difficult to worship a God you don’t know or have knowledge of.
What of God has the Holy Spirit shown unto you in your life, revealed to you. Don’t worship God based on your neighbour’s, friend’s or parents revelation seek your own knowledge of God, seek your own revelation of God. Sit down and allow the Holy Spirit teach you the person of the Holy Spirit.
What have you received from the Holy Spirit that makes you to stand and worship in your own unique way? What have you received from God that makes you stand and worship him all night without complaining? Whatever the Spirit shows us it’s a blessing of the Lord given to us.
The Spirit of God is working day and night in the earth, my question is have you ever allowed the Holy Spirit to transform your life, to transform your worship, transform your revelation transform you to be a servant of the Lord Jesus. Have you ever allowed the Holy Spirit access for him to recalibrate and remodel your worship?
Have you ever sat down and asked the Lord to fill you with the Holy Spirit,
Pray with me right now
“Father I thank you that you are a good God and that you love me, thank you for choosing me and chasing after me and now I choose you also. I want to also chase you and today I ask that your Holy Spirit would fill my life and remodel everything in my life from my knowledge, revelation of you, my worship, enhance and open my eyes and ears so that I may know you more. May your Holy Spirit teach me to worship you daily and from today I choose to be led by the Holy Spirit in all I do. I thank you for this gift of the Holy Spirit, I thank you for transforming my life so that I may magnify honour and glorify your name for eternity. Thank you Lord. Amen
