Daily Devotional by Brian Chilton

“I have asked one thing from the Lord; it is what I desire: to dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, gazing on the beauty of the Lord and seeking him in his temple. For he will conceal me in his shelter in the day of adversity; he will hide me under the cover of his tent; he will set me on a high rock. Then my head will be high above my enemies around me; I will offer sacrifices in his tent with shouts of joy. I will sing and make music to the Lord” (Ps. 27:4-6, CSB).

What is worship? Worship is the act of giving praise to someone worthy to receive it. David realized this as he prayed to have an unending fellowship with the Lord. He realized that services in the temple were not enough. God encompassed all of creation, and David wanted greater intimacy with his Creator. This intimacy involved David’s meditation on God and his Word. For a person to experience this kind of intimacy, it involves daily communion with God rather than something that only happens on Sunday.

In my devotions today, it was noted that worship does two things for the worshiper. First, worship sets the believers priorities in order. The worshiper understands that the world belongs to God and revolves around the Creator. Second, worship unveils the world around the believer. One begins to see the world and other people the way God sees them.

Challenge yourself to spend at least 5 minutes a day with God. Then, next week, strive to spend 10 minutes a day. Worship is a habit, and it is a habit that is worth adopting.
