As the New Year approaches with the stress of the busy holiday season, ripe with a calamity-filled news cycle, what better way to ease into the peace and fullness of all 2019 has to offer than through some of the best of worship featured on LightWorkers!
Worship, like many things in our journey of faith, is a choice. There is truth in the saying, “Worship is based entirely on His worth.” Meaning, whether our days are good, bad or down-right dismal, His worth is unceasing; no matter our circumstances, He is worthy of being praised.
Hebrews 12:28-29 reminds us that in Him, through Him and by Him, we have been given the extravagant gift of privileged access—through worship—to an unshakeable Kingdom, His Kingdom: “Therefore, since we are receiving a Kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us be thankful, and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe, for our ‘God is a consuming fire.’”
It is there, through true worship and in that unshakeable Kingdom that is dripping with His healing, empowering presence, where perspectives shift, burdens lift and peace takes flight. It is there, too, that new days are birthed and hopelessness banished.
This earth may tremble, as it surely is now, yet may we never forget the power of worship to usher us into His presence—the source, the antidote, the consuming fire.
So, join us as we delve into our best of worship moments, propelling us forward into 2019 unabashed and ready.
