He is the Lord of all, He commands the universe, He is C.E.O. of the galaxy, He speaks and the earth trembles, He is not just supreme but His authority is without end, everything and everyone answers to Him and He answers to no one, Yoruba calls Him ka-bi-yo-o-si (the one whom we can’t query). He is this and much more than we can describe or imagine.
Yet the Bible says He “seeketh…”
How can one with so much awesomeness, one beyond our comprehension, in His glory and majesty, how can He “seek”? What makes this worship of so much importance that He has to seek for it? What exactly is worship?
I know praise is an act. Praise can be recounting and proclaiming the wondrous things He has done. Praise proceeds from the lips. It consists basically of what I say of Him and to Him. Making known the things He has done and can do. That is praise. He might inhabit the praise of His people (Psalm 22:3), but He is not seeking for it.
Just like many spiritual things, it cannot be fully explained. Worship gets to the heart of who we are. Worship is the art of losing self in the adoration of another. It is an expression of the heart that spans from the unrestrained fetters of our minds. We bow down to worship as a sign of total surrender to His majesty. It is our way of acknowledging and reverencing His worth as lord of all. Getting the full grasp of worship is in the experience itself. One cannot begin to explain what it means to be totally lost in the awesomeness of His presence, it is really something words can’t cover for.
It is not so difficult to see why He seeks it. You can praise Him with harps and with organs and voices, but worship is from your heart. You can pray from afar and He will hear but your soul is involved when it comes to worship. I can think up a thousand and one ways to explain it but worship is simpl…L worship.
Join us as we set our hearts, our minds and soul to worship Him while men sleep.
