God-Centered Worship

“The Lord reigns, let the nations tremble.” — Psalm 99:1

Our worship, though directed towards God, is always self-centered.
From the moment we first cried as babies to the complaints we have today, it has always been about us.
But it is not about what God has done in our lives more than what God has done period.
God-centered worship delights in the victories of God, the diseases healed by God, the lives touched by God,
the failures forgiven by God – even if they’re not our victories, our diseases, our lives, or our failures.

“If we rejoice that He reigns, even when His reign makes us tremble, we can know: 

God is the center of our worship.”

The Lord said to him, “Who gave human beings their mouths? Who makes them deaf or mute? Who gives them sight or makes them blind? Is it not I, the Lord? Now go; I will help you speak and will teach you what to say.”

— Exodus 4:11

“God doesn’t call the qualified, He qualifies the called.”

I was a fool

An intelligent but skeptical man frequently had conversations with a preacher, but always stumbled at the fact of the Resurrection. At length they were separated. The preacher did not see the skeptic for years. Meanwhile, the skeptic became a believer in Christ. The first time the preacher saw his friend, he asked, “And what do you think now of the Resurrection?”

“Oh,” said he, “two words from Paul conquered me — they are: ‘Thou fool’ (I Corinthians 15:36). It was no argument, no satisfying my objections, but God convincing me that I was a fool!”

–Sunday School Times

 “For the foolishness of God is wiser than human wisdom, and the weakness of God is stronger than human strength.” – 1 Corinthians 1:25

“Some of God’s greatest gifts are unanswered prayers.”  

— Garth Brooks

Many things in life are confusing and cannot be explained. There will be tough times and moments that God seems silent.

Yet God’s sovereignty and love precede the appointed disappointments in life, confronting us with the truth that God is always in control. Thus, unanswered prayers are already answers themselves. For in the end, Who God is matters more than what He does!

Our humble response — Gratitude (“Great Attitude”): a thankful heart; a Godly lifestyle.

Life is better lived being grateful about everything than by grumbling about anything. 


“Be thankful, whatever the circumstances may be…” — 1 Thessalonians 5:18
