Let Us Worship

By Debra L. Smithson, Founder & President

Dayspring Ministries International – Michigan

What a glorious time of the year as we celebrate the birth of the beautiful Christ child! Jesus chose to come to earth as Emmanuel, “God with us.” Hebrews 1:3 says, “The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of his being, sustaining all things by His powerful word.” Jesus is faithful to sustain us in all the things that may concern us. He has us in the palm of his hand.

Genesis tells us that Adam and Eve were clothed in glory as they walked and talked with God in the Garden of Eden. They enjoyed sweet intimacy and oneness with the Father. The word Eden means, “Pleasure and delight.” The Father takes great pleasure and delight when His children turn their faces toward Him in intimacy. Worship brings us into this place of intimacy. Worship softens our hearts and quenches the fiery darts of the enemy. Intimacy with Jesus is the key to spiritual power and receiving all of God’s promises!

Worship softens our hearts like a garden on a rainy day and sharpens our spiritual discernment to truly see, hear and know in the spirit realm. This spiritual discernment is vital today so that we do not fall into the subtle deceptions of the spirit of this world. Deception can be subtle and gradual. Worship and prayer keep us tucked into the Father and they offer us a place of protection.

God said that King David was a man after His (God’s) own heart. Here is what David said in Psalm 27:4, “One thing I ask of the Lord, this is what I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty of the Lord and to seek him in his temple.” Worship and intimacy transformed David from a shepherd boy to a victorious warrior to a reigning king. It will do the same thing for you and me. Transformation does not come by striving. True transformation comes through abiding in the Vine. Abiding is achieved through obedience. Jesus obeyed the Father and thereby continuously abided in the Father. With so many things going on in the world and so much information is being thrown at us, it is easy for us to become distracted from our divine love affair with Jesus.

Our life in Christ cannot be reduced to just a weekly church experience. Our life in Christ must be a continuous passionate love affair. The Bible tells us that we are transform into the image of what we worship. Let us continue to worship Jesus and be transformed into his beautiful likeness and image. May you enjoy this divine oneness, it is my prayer that the children of God remember that Jesus is not a baby in a manger anymore. He is a ruling and reigning King that suffered and laid down his life in order to woo and enjoy a mature and spotless Bride.
