Clap your hands, all you nations, shout to God with cries of joy. How awesome is the Lord Most High, the great King over all the earth! Psalm 47:1
With so much negative talk about the economy and where we're headed as a nation, it's sometimes good just to slow down a bit and worship. It's not enough to sit down once a year and think about heavenly things. Our tanks need filled regularly. I find that if I don't do worship regularly, I get lost in the cares and worries of this world. I tend to get consumed by the world around me more often than not.
Stopping to worship doesn't have to take hours and hours out of your day, though Im sure our lives would be radically changed if we did. No, worship is about surrender. It's when we realize 1) it's not about us 24/7, 2) God is still on the throne no matter what is happening in the world, and 3) God is worthy of our worship.
It's something we might consider squeezing into our daily routines.
"Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God's mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to Godthis is your spiritual act of worship." - Romans 12:1 (New International Version)
