Authentic Prayer: Worship

Revelation 4:11 GW

“Our Lord and God, you deserve to receive glory, honor, and power
because you created everything.
Everything came into existence and was created because of your will.”
Revelation 4:11

God deserves glory, honor, and power.

Right from the start of his relationship with Israel, the Lord commanded worship. At the very top of his most important regulations, he told his people to never bow to other gods but to only worship him (Exodus 20:3-8). Yet praising God is more than a must-do task. It’s a natural response to meeting him.

The most intense worship in the universe happens in heaven, the place where God’s followers see him face-to-face. Winged creatures surround his throne and shout his holiness day and night (Revelation 4:8). Leaders of his kingdom lay their crowns before him and applaud his creative genius (Revelation 4:11). A large crowd from every nation, tribe, people, and language worships the Lamb slain to bring salvation to earth (Revelation 5:9-10).

If worship doesn’t readily flow from your mouth, ask God to reveal more of himself to you. Study his powerful acts in Scripture. Look for his bold kindness in daily life. Think hard about his trustworthy character. When you see who God truly is, you can’t help but worship.

Inspired by Revelation 4:6-11
