Well that's a good place to start today. Thinking about the first Commandment. “‘Love the Lord your God with all your HEART- and with all your SOUL- and with all your MIND." This is the first and greatest commandment.
Pondering today what genuinely satisfies my heart? Where have I substituted things or people for HIM? Willing to Acknowledge where I have turned to earthly things for satisfaction. And now, Being intentional to turn my heart towards HIM. He alone can... truly satisfy the hungry soul (Psalm 107:9)
My soul- HE is the anchor to steady our restless souls, He is our hope and always leads us to where God is. He is the peace that surpasses our understanding, who settles the emotions and calms our stormy places.
The mind....Letting God rule thoughts (the battle of the mind). Having to silence the world, or still ourselves so that we may hear His voice.
Letting no other gods take precedence before Him: False gods can take many forms and often we do not recognize what is ruling, what we are serving, what we are worshipping.
What will preoccupy and consumes my thoughts and time today?
I choose now to align my thoughts with Him, His will, His plans, His purpose. To demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and taking captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ! And to worship Him.
WORSHIP THE ONE TRUE GOD- Above Him there is no other
We do not have to look hard to see in our culture today, the importance of worshipping the One True God (above all else) has diminished. For too many....GOD FIRST has been replaced with, God when I have time. God when I can fit Him in. God after my hobbies, my job, my children....God when "I feel" like it.
Thinking of the song by Michael W Smith; what a good prayer. Lord, I'm coming back to a heart of worship where it's all about You JESUS!
Turning: turning back to our first love; turning back to a heart of worship. Turning of our time, our commitments, our loyalties, our obedience-turning towards the one we love and are created to worship-
Asking for the Holy Spirit to blow on our heart of worship. Rekindle every place in our hearts and lives where worship has gone dim.
HE IS WORTHY!
Finally, brothers and sisters, fill your minds with beauty and truth. Meditate on whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is good, whatever is virtuous and praiseworthy
Chorus: Heart of Worship
I'm coming back to the heart of worship
And it's all about You,
It's all about You, Jesus
I'm sorry, Lord, for the thing I've made it
When it's all about You,
It's all about You, Jesus
