Bowed Heads

 

Let us bow our heads
in worship

at who our
great God is

our Sacrifice
and Deliverer

the Keeper of His
promises.

**********

The One who delivers is with me.

**********

“And it shall be when your children say to you, ‘What do you mean by this service?’ “

“that you shall say, ‘It is the Passover sacrifice of the LORD who passed over the houses of the children of Israel in Egypt when He struck the Egyptians and delivered our households. So the people bowed their head and worshiped.’ “

Exodus 12:26,27 NKJV

Freed To Serve

 

I’ve brought you
out of Egypt

so you can worship
today

setting you free
so you can serve

Me
in every way.

**********

I am free to serve You, for You are with me.

**********

“Then the LORD said to Moses, ‘Rise early in the morning and stand before Pharaoh, and say to him, “Thus says the LORD God of the Hebrews: ‘Let My people go, that they may serve Me. ‘ “

The Way Of Truth

 

You will be led by
the way of truth

into all I ask
of you

and each time
My word’s confirmed

you will worship
anew.

**********

I am led by the way of truth, for You are with me.

**********

“And I bowed my head and worshiped the LORD, and blessed the LORD God of my master Abraham who led me in the way of truth to take the daughter of my master’s brother for his son.”

“Here is Rebekah before you; take her and go and let her be your master’s son’s wife, as the LORD has spoken.”

“And it came to pass, when Abraham’s servant heard their words, that he worshiped the LORD, bowing himself to the earth.”

Psalm 9 Selah

 

I may not like
how I am feeling

but it doesn’t change
who You are

so I can worship
and always praise You

telling of Your goodness
near and far.

**********

You are with me and I can pause and worship You, no matter what.

**********

“I will praise You, O LORD, with my whole heart; I will tell of all Your marvelous works.”

“I will be glad and rejoice in You; I will sing praise to Your name, O Most High.”

“He shall judge the world in righteousness, and He shall administer judgement for the people in uprightness.”

“Have mercy on me, O LORD! Consider my trouble from those who hate me, You who lift me up from the gates of death, “

“that I may tell of all Your praise in the gates of the daughter of Zion. I will rejoice in Your salvation.”

“Put them in fear, O LORD, that the nations may know themselves to be but men.”   Selah

Psalm 9:1,2,8,13,14,20. NKJV

Think It Over

 

Consider your ways
reflect on your conduct

where your time and
energy’s spent

then listen to Me
for I will be with you

making sure your efforts
are blessed.

**********

You are with me so I desire what You desire.

**********

” ‘Think it over,’ says the Lord of Hosts. ‘Consider how you have acted, and what has happened as a result!’ “

“You hope for much but get so little. And when you bring it home, I blow it away – it doesn’t last at all. Why? Because My temple lies in ruins and you don’t care. Your only concern is your own fine homes.”

“Then Zerubbabel (son of She-alti-el), the governor of Judah, and Joshua (son of Jisedech), the High Priest, and the few people remaining in the land obeyed Haggai’s message from the Lord their God; they began to worship Him in earnest.”

“Then the Lord told them (again sending the message through Haggai, His messenger), ‘I am with you, I will bless you.’ “

“And the Lord gave them a desire to rebuild His Temple . . .”

Rejoice In Christ

 

We are the
circumcision

who worship God
and rejoice

having no confidence
in our flesh

trusting His Spirit
His voice.

**********

You are with me and I rejoice in You.

**********

“For we are the circumcision, who worship God in the Spirit, rejoice in Christ Jesus, and have no confidence in the flesh . . .”

In Spirit And Truth

 

Oh Lord, teach me
to worship You

in spirit and
in truth

for that is what
You’re seeking

so what I long
to do.

You establish how to worship You.

“But the hour is coming and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him.” John 4:23 NKJV

Changed

 

Each time
I worship You
I cannot leave
the same

for every encounter
with You, Lord
brings about
a change.

You establish change in my life.

“But when the people of the land come before the LORD on the appointed feast days, whoever enters by way of the north gate to worship shall go out by way of the south gate; and whoever enters by way of the south gate shall go out by way of the north gate. He shall not return by way of the gate through which he came but shall go out through the opposite gate.” Ezekiel 46:9 NKJV

Called

 

When you
were about to perish

I called for you
to come

out of the land
of destruction

into the light
of the Son.

Jesus establishes Himself as my call.

“So it shall be in that day that the great trumpet will be blown; they will come who are about to perish in the land of Assyria, and they who are outcasts in the land of Egypt, and shall worship the LORD in the holy mount at Jerusalem.” Isaiah 27:13 NKJV

Ready

 

 

Holy, holy, holy
is your Lord God Almighty

fall down and worship
only Me

let your voices rise
like the sound of many waters

for My bride is dressed
and ready.

Jesus establishes my worship.

“Salvation and glory and honor and power belong to the Lord our God! And the twenty-four elders and the four living creatures fell down and worshiped God who sat on the throne, saying. ‘Amen! Alleluia!’ And I heard, as it were, the voice of a great multitude, as the sound of many waters and as the sound of mighty thunderings, saying, ‘Alleluia! For the Lord God Omnipotent reigns!’ Let us be glad and rejoice and give Him glory, for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and His wife has made herself ready. And I fell at his feet to worship him. But he said to me, ‘See that you do not do that! I am your fellow servant, and of your brethren who have the testimony of Jesus. Worship God! For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.’ ” Revelation 19:1,4,6,7,10
