The key to a great life and true fulfillment comes through serving others. A great leader is a great servant! V. Osteen I love that quote, and I have found it to be very true! #HisHandsHisFeet

All month long, we have been taking a Journey Through The Music. This VLOG, marks the end of that Journey. The morning this video was recorded was a rough morning for me. I was “overcoming symptoms (flu-lke),” but felt it important to communicate this message (in spite of), so here it goes, “A Word Of Encouragement | Impact (Part 4| A Journey Through The Music).

A Quick Review From The Month’s VLOG: 

The Difference Between Praise & Worship: Praise is a response to what God does. Worship is a response to who God is. When I praise God; I thank Him for His mercy when He answers my prayers. I praise Him in response to His works, but I worship Him for who He is, simply because He is God.

Who is God: In Psalm 95, we have a number of statements that tell us who God is. In vs. 1, He is called, “the Lord” and “the Rock of our salvation.” In vs. 3, He is called, “the great God” and “the great King above all gods.” In vs. 4-5 He is praised for His work as the CREATOR of all things. In vs. 6, He is “our maker.” In vs. 7, He is not just some transcendent deity, but He is “our God,” He is personal. He is our great and gentle Shepherd. In vs. 8-11, He is the God of history who called and delivered the nation of Israel.

The Affect Worship has on our Quiet-Time. Our worship not only honors and magnifies God, but it is also for our own edification and strength. Worship helps us develop a God-like and Christ-like character. We become like unto those we admire and worship. When we worship God we tend to value what God values and gradually take on the characteristics and qualities of God, but never to His level. As Philippians 2:5 says, “Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ.” How do we take on the mind of Christ? In Romans 12:2 we read, “And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.” We renew our mind as we study and meditate on God’s word and worship Him.
