He is everywhere (Omnipresent), He is all powerful (Omnipotent) and He is all knowing (Omniscient).
He knows everything!
Yet in John 4:23, the Bible tells us that the Father is seeking true worshippers.
Yes, an all knowing God seeks true worshippers. In fact, He is waiting for worshippers!
Too often we tend to back off from worship thinking that it is not good enough. We strive in our worship. We try to better our worship. But God is more interested in the relationship with the worshipper than the worship itself.
Matthew 21:16 says, “… Out of the mouth of babes and nursing infants You have perfected praise” We’ve read this scripture so many times that somehow we have not really taken in the true meaning. The significance seems to have been lost. Perfect praise does not come from perfect people. When His children praise Him, the praise is perfected for His hearing.
Singing in the bathroom , in the closet.. while driving.. Guess what God treasures them in his treasure box..!!!
Now just imagine how many times God the Father captures such moments of abandoned worship and praise. Don’t compare yourself with anyone else. God wants to hear your version. Perfected by Him, He receives it and chooses to enjoy it.
Let me paint a picture for you. Jesus is at Simon the leper’s house. There is a table laid out fully laden with the best of food. He was surrounded by dignified guests. Everyone is talking and conversations flying across the room. And here is Jesus saying, “I am hungry”. I am hungry for true worshippers. Suddenly amidst the crowd, Mary comes to Him. Abandoning all dignity and without a care for what anyone might think of her, she breaks the alabaster box which she had purchased with her life’s savings and chooses to worship Him. And then Jesus says, “I am now well fed. No one will remember what was served that day. No one will remember the conversations we had but this worship I will not forget. Because this woman has fed Me spiritually, she will be remembered throughout time.”
As the title of this blog suggests, these are the three earthly things that make it to heaven.
1) Our Worship
2) Our Tears
3) Our Prayers
God is a collector of worship, tears and prayers. He places them on the shelves of heaven. It says inPsalm 56:8, “You number my wanderings; Put my tears into Your bottle; Are they not in Your book?” Don’t hold back your worship anymore. Don’t quench your tears. Don’t make little of your prayers. He waits. He longs. He desires for you. Run to Him!
