Not everyone will tell you this but Worship is Dangerous Business! Think about how do you worship a great and mighty God with such prejudice and ignorance and still expect God to bless you? How do you stand before a great God drunk and lead worship, how do you stand before Lord of vastness and offer him half baked worship and expect Him to bless you?
If you do it the right way, you will be blessed, however, if you do it the wrong way, you will be cursed though God requires not to because God hates the sin not the sinner. How dangerous is that? Its not who you are but it is what you do that makes it dangerous business. Look at Miriam she thought she was doing good keeping the law by speaking against Moses’ wife but in actual fact she was struck with leprosy for doing what speaking against the man of God of which she thought it was right before God’s eyes. How many things did you assume that this is the way God wants us worship Him as such.
Very much so often we are like David when he was bringing the ark of covenant the first time he was doing God’s will but he offered it the wrong way and Uzzah was struck and he died it brought a lot of problems to David and the nation of Israel, with David’s second attempt to return the ark to Israel he sat down and studied the right way to worship God and bring the Ark which brought many blessings to everyone because it was done aright.
Worship is one of the best blessings that God has given to man and but it becomes dangerous when not done right. It’s just like a knife you use to cut meat but when misused or abused it destroys and even kills if not properly handled. They are laws which govern life and even a president is no exception to these same laws, so what makes us think that we can do something before God and get away with it.
God is God and he doesn’t change, we need to change and come to the level of understanding and over up acceptable worship before his presence. Isaiah 6: 4“And the foundations of the thresholds shook at the voice of him who cried, and the house was filled with smoke. Then said I, Woe is me! For I am undone and ruined, because I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips; for my eyes have seen the King, the Lord of hosts” Isaiah came to the revelation that God was beyond what He imagined and envisaged. God is not just any God he is God.
Who do you think God is in your life and should you be seeking a newer revelation of who He is?
So understand this, Worship is Dangerous Business! If you do it the right way, you will be blessed. If you do it the wrong way, you will be struck without you knowing it.
Worship him In the Splendour of Holiness
