Results Of True Worship

In my own life, I find that when I engage in true worship, all the distractions are gone and I am so immersed in pure worship. My focus is on Him and who HE says HE is. My faith begins to rise and my thoughts are all on my Maker. As I continue to exalt His Name, His Holy Presence comes upon me and fills me.
When that happens, the Spirit of God, begins to reveal what is on His mind, His heart and His agenda. Sometimes, answers to perplexing situations are given, sometimes direction and guidance is given, sometimes instruction on His word is given, sometimes rebuke or correction.
Not only this, but STRENGTH comes upon me ! Remember, in Isaiah it is said that "strength comes to those who wait upon the Lord". In short, the anointing and empowerment is given to do His work. Sadly, worship is the most important and most neglected part of Christian walk next to prayer!
Psalms says "God dwells on the praises of His people". That is exactly what happens when our mind, soul, body and spirit engages with His Spirit. Not only does God reveal Himself, what has occurred is that I have encountered TRUTH. Without heartfelt praise, sincere offering rising up to His throne like sweet incense, I would not have even entered the Holy of Holies but still outside His courts.
When TRUTH is revealed, there is no option here but to respond in OBEDIENCE to what God has revealed! When God reveals, HE enables.
It is time for the Church of God to return to authentic praise and worship. Only then, when we learn to do His work His way, there is much lasting fruit and success. Families, Communities, Nations will be transformed.
Victory is on our side over all situations as the people of God ARISE in honest heartfelt worship. Satan and his demons flee when the people of God praise God. Psalm 8:2 (God) has ordained praise because of your enemies, to silence the foe and the avenger.
GOD HAS ORDAINED IT, THE KEY HAS BEEN GIVEN, WE HIS PEOPLE WILL DO WELL TO OBEY AND SEE ASTONISHING RESULTS TO TURNING THE WORLD UP SIDE DOWN FOR YESHUA, OUR MESSIAH !
