The Father is Leading Us to Worship in a New Way – Part 6
Are You Worshipping Where You Are?
“Some religious people say that some Christians go to football games and worship an idol when they scream. Not necessarily. They are just screaming for their favorite football team. If the Father remains preeminent in their life at the football stadium, they’re fine! This is what’s keeping us from coming into the next harvest. We don’t see ourselves in worship when we’re having to sit in a place that’s not the sanctuary. I have to see myself in worship on a plane. I have to see myself in worship at work. Sometimes the only place we can go to eat when our team is traveling overseas is to the bar, because it’s so late or in the middle of the night. We have to see ourselves in worship there. We have to be the influencers in that place. We have to bring Him into and loose Him into that place. If you do that, then all of a sudden, His atmosphere begins to permeate the atmosphere you are sitting in. You have to see yourself in worship when you go out to eat, because all eating when you are with other Believers is communion. You have to go out there and have a worship attitude, so you can express Who is preeminent in your life. It’s not about you just running up to everyone and asking them if they want to get saved. That can scare people off. But if they see Him as preeminent in your life, and you’re voice reflects that, and your conduct reflects that, the lost will be drawn to Him. Now, if football is what is preeminent in your life, that is what you are worshipping.” (Chuck Pierce)
“For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him. And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist. And He is the head of the body, the church, who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in all things He may have the preeminence. For it pleased the Father that in Him all the fullness should dwell.” (Colossians 1:16-19; NKJV)
Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:
- Examine yourself and ask the Lord what things are preeminent in you. Make heart adjustments, if need be.
- Ask the Father to show you how to make Him preeminent in your life everywhere you go.
- Pray for the Church to be comfortable worshipping Him in all the public places we go every day.
- Intercede for the Body of Christ to honor the Lord and make Him preeminent.
- Pray for the world to be convicted by His Presence in Christ’s worshipful ones in the public square. May they be drawn to Jesus by our example and love of Him.
A prayer you can pray:
Lord, You see all things and know all things, and You tell me I am not able to know my own heart. So, please examine my heart today for places of preeminence. What has taken preeminence in my heart? Is it You or something or someone other than You. I will wait for Your determination and revelation. Do a work in me, so that I am not embarrassed or afraid to honor You everywhere I go. I want Your preeminence in my life to show any place I find myself—at work, at play, traveling, at family events—anywhere. Lord, let an attitude of worship permeate my life. Let You be seen in me at all times. Let those around me think, “There is something different about that person.” Then, let me be able to share what that is—You in me. Let the whole Church start to live like this! Break fear and religion off of us. Fear keeps us from sharing You, and religious motivations and activities keep others from wanting You. When we share You with an expression of love, honor and place of Your preeminence in our lives, what can keep the lost from You? Grace us, Jesus. Amen.
We will make Him preeminent in every place we find ourselves! Then, He will be seen in the earth!
