Ascribe to the LORD, you heavenly beings, ascribe to the LORD glory and strength. Ascribe to the LORD the glory due his name; worship the LORD in the splendor of his holiness. – Psalm 29:1-2
Was it easy or hard to come up with the list of obstacles/distractions that detract from worship? I had to confess that “I” am one of the biggest obstacles. When I am not prepared to die to self and let love prevail, worship is impeded.
Before we get to today’s activity, let me highlight another key insight from the 40 Days of Discipline website: The precursor to true worship is being overwhelmed by God’s greatness.
If you have been following all the instructions over the last three days you should have:
• Your list of the attributes of God, which make him worthy of worship
• Your list of attributes about yourself, which compel you to worship God;
• Your list of obstacles/distractions that detract from worship.
Today is about commitment. Examine what you have written down over the last three days and spend some time prayerfully considering what you should commit to changing to make worship more of a priority. Remember that you can do all things through Christ who strengthens you.
