Today’s 333 Devotional: “Don’t Discount the Power of Worship”
There is power in our worship of God, power to hear His words of wisdom and comfort, as well as the power to heal our bodies, souls, and spirits.
David saw this firsthand when he was a young lad. He was gifted in the worship of God, so much so that he was asked to the palace to play for King Saul to calm him down and drive the demons away.
Saul’s servants said, “Let our master now command your servants, who are before you, to seek out a man who is a skillful player on the harp; and it shall be that he will play it with his hand when the distressing spirit from God is upon you, and you shall be well.” (1 Samuel 16:16)
And so, whenever Saul was distressed David would take his harp and play it. Then Saul would become refreshed and well, and the distressing spirit would depart from him (1 Samuel 16:23).
When David became King he knew the power of worship, which is why he had a prophet/worship leader as his personal confident, along with his sons and daughters to play music in the House of the Lord.
“All these were under the direction of their father for the music in the house of the Lord, with cymbals, stringed instruments, and harps, for the service of the house of God.” (1 Chronicles 25:5-6)
Worship has great power to open up the pathway to heaven and allow God to pour out upon us His healing power and to speak great words of importance into our lives.
So, let’s not think of our time together of worship as that time to allow stragglers to find a seat before the message, but let’s look forward to entering before the Lord with great expectation and anticipation, because we are in God’s presence.
Therefore, when Sunday comes around, come early, and prepare your heart to worship the Lord. And God will meet you there.
