If you are born again, then you are able to worship God in the spirit. This is because your spirit man has been redeemed and is now in unity with the Lord Jesus Christ. The Holy Spirt is committed to bringing things to our remembrance and God doesn’t want any of His children to forget what He has done in the past.

Psalm 103:1-5 is a record of David testifying to what God had done in his past. He instructs his own soul, the seat of his intellect, never to forget all the benefits of the Lord he has enjoyed. We are encouraged to source words we use in worship from our personal experience of God’s goodness and mercies. When Yorubas say,“Oba awon oba t'o so oloriburuku di olor’ire” (The King of kings who turned a destitute to a success), they are addressing God in worship based on that experience.

Words are very important when you are before the Lord; learn to bring true words of worship. Always remember what the Lord has done in yesteryears. When you forget His doings because you are expecting another miracle, you are not being true to God in your worship. David knew how to rehearse God’s doings and He also knew the right posture to take before the Lord. He sat on the floor in the temple (2 Samuel 7: 18) and bowed himself (1 Kings 1:46-48). Always use words and postures that make God smile on you.


PRAYER: Lord, deliver me from distractions when I ought to worship you. Holy Spirit, lead me to use the right words and take the right posture in worship in Jesus’ name.
