We live in a BEST-obsessed society.
Everyone either wants the best or to be the best.
Thankfully, God wants us to have the best too.
In Psalm 34:9, He says to “Worship Me if you want the best; worship opens doors to all My goodness.”
Interesting, isn’t it? He doesn’t say to pray harder, serve more people or even sin less to get His best. He tells us to worship Him.
In most churches today, worship has become synonymous with praise music. We sing and praise God while lifting up our hands to Him; grateful for who He is and how He chooses to bless us.
And while praise music is a common form of worship, it certainly isn’t the only one.
Psalm 95:6-7 compels us to “Come, let us bow down in worship, let us kneel before the LORD our Maker.”
The psalmist reminds us there are times when you simply want to bow down low before God in silence and listen to what He has to say.
This type of worship is about quietness and the way we relate to God in the midst of His holiness.
It’s in holy quietness that we hear God’s reassuring voice.
Then in hearing God’s reassuring voice, we enter into His rest.
What a beautiful way to gain God’s best.
