Dearly Beloved Church and Saints of The Most High GOD,
Being in the presence of the Almighty GOD, El Shaddai, is something to be rejoiced of as He has counted us worthy to come and to be before Him. When we are in His glorious presence we are to praise His Holy Name with our whole heart, for it is when we seek Him with our whole heart it is then and there that we shall find Him. He is The Most High GOD; the only One Who is worthy of all of our honor and praise. King David says, “I will praise thee, O Lord, with my whole heart; I will shew forth all thy marvellous works. I will be glad and rejoice in thee: I will sing praise to thy name, O thou most High” (Psalm 9:1-2). Our LORD Jesus Christ died for our salvation and atoned for our sins; we are to rejoice in His salvation, for salvation is found in no other (Acts 4:12). It is in our heart where He must rule and reign as King. If our heart does not truly belong to Christ we naturally will have no desire to worship Him as He should be and deserves to be worshiped. In Jeremiah 24:7 The LORD says that has given us a heart to know Him and that He IS The LORD. This is important to understand for it is when we truly get to know Him that He begins intimately speaking with us and teaching us, flooding us with His anointing. When we become truly anointed in His Spirit, He sets up divine barriers and borders around us to hedge us in; this is done by encompassing us round about with His angelic hosts. We read in Psalm 20:5-6, “We will rejoice in thy salvation, and in the name of our God we will set up our banners: the Lord fulfil all thy petitions. Now know I that the Lord saveth his anointed; he will hear him from his holy heaven with the saving strength of his right hand”. In rejoicing in The LORD in worship and in praise and in thanksgiving with our whole heart we are elevated for His glory for a higher calling in this world upon this earth. GOD makes it clear in His Word that anyone who seeks to hurt His anointed will be judged accordingly. To worship The LORD with all of our heart is also in return to obtain the favor of our King! There is no greater feeling or sensation on this earth in this fallen world than to be able to walk freely throughout every day in joy and without fear knowing that The Almighty GOD is for us and He’s got us; nothing can come against us when we are with Him, when He is walking right there with us. I see a beautiful perspective unfolding before me and within me in learning how to worship King Jesus and how to enter into His presence upon His throne of mercy and grace; the more I worship Him in spirit and in truth with my whole heart, the more His favor is poured out upon me and the enemy’s power of sway or right to come in is more greatly diminished! The more I fall on my face before the throne in worship of my King, the less effective are the strategies of satan to bind me into a mental prison, decreased intensely are the powers of luring sin, less likely it becomes that I will fall, and the easier it becomes to carry my cross walking in this cursed world. Worship of Jesus breaks away the chains!
Psalm 59:16-17 sounds out, “But I will sing of thy power; yea, I will sing aloud of thy mercy in the morning: for thou hast been my defence and refuge in the day of my trouble. Unto thee, O my strength, will I sing: for God is my defence, and the God of my mercy”. We must always keep in remembrance the all-powerful sovereignty of our great King and how powerful He truly is! He is our Refuge and Defense in our time of trouble and He pours out mercy unto those who truly love Him and make place for Him in their heart, unto those who sing aloud a joyful noise in praise of His Holy Name. We find all we need in worshiping Him, as the floodgates of heaven open wide and rain down blessing and provision. King David sings, “Make a joyful noise unto God, all ye lands: Sing forth the honour of his name: make his praise glorious. Say unto God, How terrible art thou in thy works! through the greatness of thy power shall thine enemies submit themselves unto thee. All the earth shall worship thee, and shall sing unto thee; they shall sing to thy name. Selah” (Psalm 66:1-4); “Sing unto God, ye kingdoms of the earth; O sing praises unto the Lord; Selah: To him that rideth upon the heavens of heavens, which were of old; lo, he doth send out his voice, and that a mighty voice” (Psalm 68:32-33). There is deep revelation here in these few scriptures illustrating what worship breaks open and does within us and around us. When we sing praises unto GOD which magnify His great power and terror our enemies scatter in all directions and every wall falls down. Worship is a powerful breaker anointing that emerges from The Spirit of The LORD when we drop to our knees before His throne. Magnify The LORD and He will give all things according to His perfect will, for it is with our whole hearts we seek Him first and His kingdom and His righteousness!
King David was the greatest warrior king in the Holy Scriptures aside from the King of Kings, Jesus Christ our LORD. As we have been learning through the many sayings and songs he wrote, there is a key here that we need to grab ahold of and keep to continually use which will unlock every door before us. That key is worship and praise of The LORD! He obtained the favor of GOD in his life and in his 40-year reign, even after he fell into some of the greatest sins. He still recovered all and reestablished favor in the eyes of The LORD. So we have to take special notice that King David stopped all things to praise and worship and to pray to GOD three times a day; through his praises with his whole heart there was an abundant stream of mercy and grace that flooded into his life. He sang, “I will praise thee, O Lord my God, with all my heart: and I will glorify thy name for evermore. For great is thy mercy toward me: and thou hast delivered my soul from the lowest hell” (Psalm 86:12-13). King David knew all too well the psychological torture of the consequences of sin which gave satan rights to enter into his life and stir up a whirlwind of grief. The grief of his sin drove this king to his knees in lamentation and weeping, in crying out to and worshiping in praise the Name of The LORD; therefore GOD poured out His mercy upon David and delivered him from the lowest hell walking in this world. GOD freed him from the torment of satan. So we need to remember that if GOD is the same GOD yesterday today and forever, which He is, then the same GOD that was there in the times of old Who delivered King David in all of these glorious ways is the same GOD that we worship today! If He did it then, He will do it now. GOD desires our whole heart, for He is a jealous GOD and will not share us with another. Jesus is our Bridegroom and we are to be His faithful Bride, even in our heaviest most sorrowful times even moreso then should we run to our King!
Psalm 89:5-7 speaks of the Almighty GOD in this way, “And the heavens shall praise thy wonders, O Lord: thy faithfulness also in the congregation of the saints. For who in the heaven can be compared unto the Lord? who among the sons of the mighty can be likened unto the Lord? God is greatly to be feared in the assembly of the saints, and to be had in reverence of all them that are about him”. Vs. 15-17 go on to say, “Blessed is the people that know the joyful sound: they shall walk, O Lord, in the light of thy countenance. In thy name shall they rejoice all the day: and in thy righteousness shall they be exalted. For thou art the glory of their strength: and in thy favour our horn shall be exalted”. To conclude this teaching of how to enter into the presence of The Almighty GOD and how to worship Him and why it is so important to do so, we leave you with this: The stars of heaven praise GOD and all of creation groans in longing just to be reconciled back to His Holy perfection (Romans 8:19). GOD is greatly to be feared for His countenance is mighty in the assembly of the congregation and in His Name alone is anything done or made whole. In worshipping Him we are then anointed and blessed, obtaining His favor in this world as we are prepared for the next: eternity with Him. So when we worship Him and love Him with our whole heart, this is where we grab ahold of the keys which we need to unlock higher levels of His Spirit overflow in our lives. We only have one life to live, and it must be lived for Him in every way: we must give all to Him through worship and love.
Be encouraged in Jesus’ Name!
“Now The LORD of peace Himself give you peace always by all means. The LORD be with you all.” (2 Thessalonians 3:16). Keep us in Prayer that the advancing of His glorious Kingdom comes through us as we wait for His powerful day of arrival. God Bless you in the mighty and powerful name of Jesus Christ The LORD!
