It’s Not About You

Here is an excerpt from His Delight 31 days of Praise and Worship.
Enjoy!
There is a popular Christian chorus that starts with the words, “I forget about myself and concentrate on you to worship you”. Worship is about you presenting your life as a living sacrifice to Him. Often,I have heard Christians say things like, “I did not really enjoy the praise songs today” or, “I did not ‘flow’ with the worship songs”; or even “I do not like the worship leader”! Guess what?

Worship is not for you to enjoy, it is for God to enjoy. It is never about the song, it is about what is in your heart. It is not about the instruments (or lack of thereof) or the musical technology or your favorite worship leader.

It is however, about adoring God, with your words, in your singing, in your dancing, in your attitude and in your life. As the aforementioned song says, forget about you because it is not about you.
Let God Himself be the focus of your praise and worship, so that whatever the circumstances, you are worshipping God and not indulging in a feel-good emotional session.

DOXOLOGY

It’s all about You Lord.
My praise and worship is all about You.
You reign and rule on high in splendor, in righteousness, in glory, in power, in mercy, in judgment and in love.
I exalt You Lord above everything vying for my attention.
You are worthy of the highest place.
Take all my praise today, El-Elyon-Most High God; the One who is there and ever faithful.
Jehovah Shamma.
I worship and adore You Holy One of Israel because it is all about You!
