Worship always makes me think of songs and singing praise hymns. But true worship is praising Him- not just through song, but prayer, dances, thoughts and talk. Anything that humbles yourself and glorifies God. He enjoys every little thing you do to bring Him glory.
He only wants you to worship Him- and not in a deity way but in a Godly way, as in a way that doesn't separate you from Him but draws you closer. When you are letting it all go and surrendering it all to Him, He fills you completely. The more you give yourself to Him, the more He fills you with joy. (1Peter 1:8) He fills you with His Spirit. (John 4:24) Give Him thanks and praise for all that's in your life- the good and the bad. (Philippians 4:6) For, from the bad comes good. (Romans 8:28) When giving Him thanks, you're accepting His goodness, and accepting that He cares for you and provides for you, and that in turn is accepting His security. You're acknowledging that He has complete control of your life- and there is nothing He can't give you. The lower you bow down before Him, the higher you lift Him, and He in return lifts you higher. When He raises you up, accept that He loves you. And there is no greater love than His.
Knowing God is in control, and that He loves like you don't understand, and gave His Son for you (John 3:16) should be enough to make you want to sing from the rafters, shout from the rooftop, dance in the streets... Worship Him with unabashed, unashamed, abandoned love for Him. And when you surrender it all to Him, worship Him for a Who He Is, Was and always Will Be- He will fill you with His Peace. (2Thessalonians 3:16)
And Peace is what we all strive for, isn’t it? (Philippians 4:7) Worship Him and be given His peace. Praise Him and receive His security. Thank Him and accept His love.
