Worship — God’s Way Not Mine!

As I have been reading The Desert Pastor’s blog, I have been praying about areas of my life that should be conformed to the image of the Lord Jesus Christ. Doing this, however, has not been an easy task! It is so easy to respond in a fleshly manner (the manner I’m used to doing) instead of a godly manner. Many times my mind struggles against the flesh but the flesh wins out. Why is that? I ask myself. The times I do that is normally when I have not renewed my mind with God’s Word and/or I am following a habit and respond without thinking or praying about the situation first.

We know that worship is NOT just 20 minutes of singing on Sunday (normally called the “Praise and Worship” time). Worship IS glorifying God in every area of your life! Since we cannot do it on our own then it becomes necessary that we go to the ONE Who enables us to do it. The only way we can worship God — HIS WAY — is through us being renewed in our mind regularly.

I am very thankful that the Lord has put many things in our lives recently, including heartbreak, to wake us up to the fact that we were not serving Him but ourselves! May the Lord continue to break our wills, mould us into the image of Christ, and enable us to renew our minds continuously and without ceasing!

Thankful for God’s Discipline when we need it,

Desert Pastor’s wife

  1. Hello Sweetheart,

    You are a very special wife, and I am thankful to God for you. Growing together in the knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ has not been easy, but well worth the effort. I look forward to seeing what else the Lord has for us as we walk together into the unknown future – but known to God!

    Love you,
    The Desert Pastor
