THEME: POWER OF WORSHIP

MEMORISE: But thou art holy, O thou that inhabitest the praises of Israel. Psalms 22:3

Read: 1 Chronicles 16:23-27
23. Sing unto the LORD, all the earth; shew forth from day to day his salvation.
24. Declare his glory among the heathen; his marvellous works among all nations.

25. For great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised: he also is to be feared above all gods.
26. For all the gods of the people are idols: but the LORD made the heavens.

27. Glory and honour are in his presence; strength and gladness are in his place.

MESSAGE:

Worship is a magnet so powerful that it attracts even the King of all kings all the way from heaven to wherever it is.

I know this because John 4:24 says God is seeking those who will worship Him in spirit and in truth. We see the magnetic power of worship in play in Acts 16:25-27 where Paul and Silas were imprisoned and heavily chained.

They worshipped God and since He is always seeking those that will worship Him, Hus presence came down mightily in to the prison and caused an earthquake.

The earthquake was so severe that it broke the chains of all the prisoners and opened all the prison doors.
In the Presence of God, there is joy, not sorrow (Psalm 16:11).

In His presence, there is liberty, not bondage (2 Corinthians 3:17). When He appears, demons flee (Mark 5:1-20). Do you need His presence in any area of your life? Just worship Him.

KEY POINT:
The Power of worship is its ability to attract God’s presence.

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR:
Job 23-25, Acts 10:24-48

Hymn 8
1. Immortal, invisible, God only wise,
In light inaccessible hid from our eyes
Most blessed, most glorious, the Ancient of days,
Almighty, victorious, Thy great name we praise.

2. Unresting, unhasting, and silent as light,
Nor wanting, nor wasting, thou rulest in might;
Thy justice like mountains high soaring above,
Thy clouds which are fountains of goodness and love.

3. To all life thou givest to both great and small;
In all life Thou livest, the true life of all;
We blossom and flourish as leaves on the tree,
And wither and perish, but nought changeth Thee.

4. Great Father of Glory, pure Father of Light,
Thine angels adore Thee, all veiling their sight;
All laud we would render; o help us to see;
‘Tis only the splendor of light hideth Thee.

5. Immortal, invisible, God only wise,
In light inaccessible hid from our eyes
Most blessed, most glorious, the Ancient of days,
Almighty, victorious, Thy great name we praise.
