Worship; When Exactly Do I Do that Again?

**This may sound crazy but my computer was not cooperating…after praying over it, it is now working just fine!! Thank you God!**

Deuteronomy 12:31
Psalms 29:2
Psalms 95:1-6
Psalms 105:1-4 

Worship- reverent devotion and allegiance pledged to God (or a god); to regard with great respect, honor, or devotion
So often we get caught up in “worship”. However, worship is not solely done to music; it is not merely the raising of hands, stomping of feet, dances, or shouts of praise that we often call worship. Worship is constant. It never ends. Even though there are moments where our worship becomes “radical” on the outside because of our “thrashing and crashing”, worship should and MUST be radical on the inside, as well as all the time. It may seem like I am trying to say that you must spin, shake, and cry in line at Wal-Mart, or in the halls at school to be a true worshipper. (If God is moving you to do that- DO IT!) But what I am trying to say is, worship is from the heart. It’s internal. Worship is giving all your devotion, respect, and honor to the Almighty God! To have the outward displays of praise and worship, it must FIRST consume us on the inside. “Be still and know I am God”. Us, as Christians, get so wrapped up on what we believe is worship: singing the loudest, raising our hands the highest, taking the most notes, watching the most Ramp podcasts, dancing the longest. But what we so desperately need to realize is…. If we can stand still, not saying a word, realize that our world is falling apart around us, and still have worship in our hearts, then it will overflow into everything we do. It will be evident in how we treat each other. It will be evident in the effort we put into our school work and jobs. It will be evident when our families begin to turn to God. And yes, it will be evident in how we dance, study, and pray. Just remember, worship never ends, and it is not for us, It is to give glory, honor, and devotion to GOD so that OTHERS will see His glory.
