Even When You Don't Feel Like It!

Some days are days and others, well....!!

I think we all have our days when things don't go exactly the way that we want or plan. When things appear to go to heck in a handbasket and you wonder why even bother? Why pray? Why even press in?

Then you begin to have a conversation with God and you say something like:

"You know God, I am really bummed about this issue, this problem, this situation and boy it sure looks like I am in a loosing battle! No matter what, it sure looks like it is going to pieces. What do I do Lord?"

You hear a still small voice whispering in your heart, "Praise me, worship me, trust me!"

"Say What!!!!! You want me to do what?"

"I want you to Praise me, Worship Me, Trust me!"

"Your kidding, right?"

"In the midst of all of this, you want me to worship you?"

"Yes"

"Ok, I sure don't see what this is going to do?"

"Lord, I am here, I am opening my mouth."

You ever so slowly begin to look to God, you began to focus on Him, on His word and you begin to sense His presence beginning to cover you, you sense a peace rising within, a calmness and you begin to realize in the midst of the storm, of whatever you are going through, whatever the situation, when you take that step of faith and are obedient and begin to honor the Lord with the words of your mouth, and the meditations of your heart, that you begin to rise up out of the pit of dispair, of hurt, of pain, of hopelessness and realize that the Creator of Heaven and Earth is in your midst.

He has come into that place of worship and praise and has become one with you and rejoices in the worship and praise as you have communion with Him and that worship and praise opens the door of your heart and spirit to the Lord so He can work in you the things that He has spoken and bring healing to you.

So even when you don't feel like it, Worship God. Cry out and let His Spirit come in through worship and praise and restore unto you the joy of your salvation!!
