My devotion today is about worship, waiting, and working, and how these three are meant to happen together, not separately. This is from My Utmost for His Highest by Oswald Chambers. We are not to jump from worship, waiting, and then to working, but to worship while waiting, to worship while working, and wait while worshiping and working, etc.
My thoughts today:
It is important to keep a worshipful heart every moment even when we are not physically sitting down and in a praying position. Worshiping needs to become a kind of lifestyle, in which whatever we do, we worship, through joy and sorrow. Not to say that it is to deny the sadness that life can bring us, but in the sadness to still worship and declare God as being sovereign and in control of the situation.
It is, however, also important to set apart time to worship in the midst of busy-ness and the noises that the world brings to us. This will quieten our heart and mind, so before we start our day, we have reminded ourselves that our focus for the next 24 hours will be on worshiping God through whatever is in front of us.
