Worship in Spirit & Truth
“Hallelujah” – Hebrew word that means “praise to Jehovah”
A word used today to denote pious joy and exaltation
Hosanna is a Greek word, which means “save now.” It eventually became a proclamation of praise.
Psalms 150:6 NKJV
6 Let everything that has breath praise the Lord . Praise the Lord !
ithing opens the window in heaven of God’s blessing. Praise opens the door in heaven for your spiritual victory and the defeat of the enemy of our soul.
What person has hurt you that you need to praise God for? What situation do you face that you need to praise your way to victory?
Genesis 22:5 NKJV
5 And Abraham said to his young men, “Stay here with the donkey; the lad and I will go yonder and worship, and we will come back to you.”
Genesis 22:8 NKJV
8 And Abraham said, “My son, God will provide for Himself the lamb for a burnt offering.” So the two of them went together.
As you fix your eyes on God, He becomes bigger and your problems become smaller. Like Abraham, you confess that God is going to solve your problems.
God did not tell Abraham to go worship. He told him to go sacrifice his son. Abraham knew that he could not obey God without getting the strength from God to obey.
When we worship, we trade our weakness for His strength.
Matthew 4:9-10 NKJV
9 And he said to Him, “All these things I will give You if You will fall down and worship me.” 10 Then Jesus said to him, “Away with you, Satan! For it is written, ‘You shall worship the Lord your God, and Him only you shall serve.’ ”
Revelation 4:8 NKJV
8 The four living creatures, each having six wings, were full of eyes around and within. And they do not rest day or night, saying: “Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, Who was and is and is to come!”
Praise is the antidote to depression.
Isaiah 61:3 NKJV
3 To console those who mourn in Zion, To give them beauty for ashes, The oil of joy for mourning, The garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; That they may be called trees of righteousness, The planting of the Lord , that He may be glorified.”
“I will sing of the mercies of the Lord forever and with my mouth will I make known thy faithfulness.”
The challenge today is for all of us to not only worship in this house, but live a life of praise and worship.
Start praising God for everything good and bad in your life. Praise Him that He’s going to change those bad things.
Start praising Him before you get the miracle—not just after you get the miracle.
Here are a few songs for you to worship our God.
