12 INSIGHTS ON WORSHIP
God doesn’t thrive on you worshiping Him. He is self-existent; He has the power of being in and of Himself. He depends on nothing and no one for His existence. His value is not measured or dictated by anything outside of Him.
Worship is a privilege of covenant relationship, where faith possess the spirit in man to ascend into the hallowed realm of God, where He robbed himself on us until eternity fill our soul like the waters covers the earth
We have this notion in many Christian circles, that when we come into Gods presence and surrender ourselves into worship, we are literally making God feel extraordinary or great in himself, like a child opening a gift box; they feel on top of the world
God is not a man to be mesmerized with human language, feeling a sudden rush of adrenaline, jumping on eternity edge because someone has awaken him into self consciousness.

Revelation of the heights of God in our spirit provokes a spontaneous adoration and exaltation without, yet the heart is where the drama unfolds. This exaltation is not to make God feel exalted but rather makes Him become exalted in our hearts.

Such encounters of the heart cannot be tamed but rather be expressed from within. Deep emotions embodies the vocalizing of the tokens of our hearts in the form of gratitude, majesty, thankfulness, repentance, inspiration, transformation, hopefulness, weepings, contriteness, revelations, supernatural manifestations, and what have you
Without music my heart should be able to climb the ladder of God and stand before His presence and feast on the awesomeness of who He is
Everywhere I am, I am a worshiper at heart. Whatever I do, I am a worshipper of God. When I do what I do, as unto the Lord, then I am serving the Lord with my heart, in consistent with His will
Intimacy with the Lord ploughs the heart for seed sowings of heavenly burdens. A worshiper carries the heartbeat of God and prosecute it with the measure of grace God provides
The Kings worshiper is a man who has surrendered his entire existence to the Lordship of Christ, living in consistent with the operation manual of the Kingdom in all things. His meat is to feast on the will of the Father instead of the mundane bread of human desires
“For God is my witness, whom I serve with my spirit in the gospel of his Son, that without ceasing I make mention of you always in my prayers;” Romans 1:9 KJVAAE
Verse Romans 1:9. Whom I serve with my spirit — λατπευω Whom I worship with the profoundest religious reverence; for so the original certainly means: I not only employ all the powers of my body in this service, but all those of my soul; being thoroughly convinced of the absolute truth of the religion I preach. — Adam Clarke
