Where is the newborn king of the Jews? We saw his star as it rose, and we have come to worship him.
–Matthew 2:2 NLT
Two days ago worship was defined and offered as a means to help restore some calm to your month. Yesterday you had a practice “worship moment.” Today some ideas are listed below to help you as you develop your ability to focus on how incredible God is:
- Develop your “hit list” of awe-inspired moments—from looking at gorgeous, starlit nights, to the first time you held an infant, to the moment you realized that the Baby born so long ago paid the price to give you salvation.
- Listen to songs that focus your thoughts on how amazing or faithful or powerful your God is: “No One Higher,” “What a Beautiful Name,” “How Great is Our God,” or perhaps an old hymn like “Joy to the World.”
- Read the Bible. If you don’t have a list of favorite verses, here are a few: Genesis 1:1-4; 1 Chronicles 16:25-26; Psalm 89:5-8; Psalm 95:1-6; Revelation 5:11-12.
Daily worship doesn’t have to take long. In fact, it can be only for a moment or two, but worshiping throughout your day can change your entire day—and even a holiday season! Come and worship!
- Thank God for Jesus, the Baby who was born, grew up, died on a Cross, and then rose from the dead—all to give you new life!
- Ask Him to remind you to worship as part of your daily life—from the moment you wake up till the time you head back to bed.
