The Father is Leading Us to Worship in a New Way – Part 7
The Pre-eminence of the Father in Your Life
“Worship is the priority we place on who God is in our life and where He is in our priorities. Put Him first. Seek ye the Kingdom first, and everything else will be added to you. The choices you make determine your priorities. Where is He? How are you choosing Him in your everyday life? That becomes very important in how we worship. Your worship expresses the deity or what is preeminent, in your heart. What comes out of your mouth is what is in your heart. You can capture what is preeminent in your life by hearing what is coming out of your mouth. When you hear some things come out of your mouth, you should be saying, ‘Oh, my goodness. How did that find its way into my soul?’ When you hear it, you can grab hold of the spirit behind it and immediately deal with it. Get it out. That’s why we have people in our lives that God has given us to help us stay in a place of preeminence with the Father. It’s good when you say something and a fellow Believer says to you, ‘That wasn’t right. You just cursed yourself.’ That becomes important as you move forward.” (Chuck Pierce)
“But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.” (Matthew 6:33; KJV)
Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:
Pray the prayer below over your personal life.
Now, make that your prayer over our nation.
A prayer you can pray:
Father, at times our lives are challenging. Sometimes, we face things we do not understand and that we do not know how to deal with. We see our sinfulness and the enemy tries to make us hide ourselves from you, instead of coming boldly to Your throne of grace. Keep us worshipping You and reminding ourselves of Your love and commitment. We join together today and pray Psalm 29. We choose to worship You, regardless of our circumstances, for You are worthy!
“Proclaim his majesty, all you mighty champions, you sons of Almighty God, giving all the glory and strength back to him. Be in awe before his majesty. Be in awe before such power and might! Come worship wonderful Yahweh, arrayed in all His splendor, bowing in worship as he appears in the beauty of holiness. Give him the honor due his name. Worship Him wearing the glory-garments of your holy, priestly calling! The voice of the Lord echoes through the skies and seas. The Glory-God reigns as He thunders in the clouds. So powerful is His voice, so brilliant and bright, how majestic as He thunders over the great waters! His tympanic thunder topples the strongest of trees. His symphonic sound splinters the mighty forests. Now He moves Zion’s mountains by the might of His voice, shaking the snowy peaks with His ear-splitting sound! The lightning-fire flashes, striking as He speaks. God reveals himself when He makes the fault lines quake, shaking deserts, speaking His voice. God’s mighty voice makes the deer to give birth.
His thunderbolt voice lays the forest bare. In His temple all fall before Him with each one shouting, ‘Glory, glory, the God of glory!’ Above the furious flood, the Enthroned One reigns, the King-God rules with eternity at His side. This is the one who gives His strength and might to His people. This is the Lord giving us His kiss of peace.” (Psalm 29; TPT) Thank you, Jesus, amen.
Making the Father our first choice each day will bring freedom to the captives!
