Excerpted from Your Daily Cup of Inspiration by Dianna Hobbs (EEW President & CEO)
I was in the middle of working on several projects today after a long night. I have lots to do, so I was feeling a bit overwhelmed. Right in the middle of it all, I heard the Holy Spirit tell me to stop everything and worship Him. He even placed the song in my heart that would be the soundtrack for this impromptu worship encounter.
The song was Kierra Sheard’s version of Laura Story’s “Indescribable”—one of my all-time favorites!—made popular by Chris Tomlin. It always reduces me to tears. So I found it in my playlist, cranked up the volume and released every care in the presence of God.
It was just what I needed to do in that moment. I’m telling you, as I allowed myself to get lost in thoughts of what a mighty and wonderful God I serve, everything else just melted away.
There’s something about marveling over how marvelous, big, powerful, and awesome our God is, isn’t there? When we do that, any issues we might be facing suddenly seem smaller in the presence of a great and magnanimous God. He truly is amazing!
I believe that worship is the perfect antidote for the heavy heart. There is healing power in worship. It lifts bowed down heads and heals broken lives. Though the nature of worship is not self-centered, but God-centered, pouring our love on Him with clean hands and a pure heart, invokes His presence. And we already know, in His presence is fullness of joy and everything we need.
That’s why I’m admonishing you to worship God today.
