I was early in church this morning and whilst I was seated in the pews, I took out my iPad and continued reading where I left off in Hearing God, Developing a Conversational Relationship with God by Dallas Willard.
This statement really brought me closer to God in the praise and worship session that followed: "Our understanding (of God) must grow before we can have any significant appreciation of what we are experiencing on occasions when God intervenes in our lives."
I know we need to worship in spirit and as well as in truth. But I have not been doing that in a long while. I have been singing only for the sake of singing. I was not worshipping. There were too many other things in my mind.
It is time I revive my life in Christ as I learn to abide in Christ. When I worship, God is my main focus, not me and my problems or me and my thoughts, but God and God alone whom I worship.
Again, I need to come back to heart of worship, God alone.
