One of my all-time favorite quotes that FUELS my understanding of WORSHIP is from A.W. Tozer.
“We are called to an everlasting preoccupation with God”
Do you know what it’s like to be preoccupied with something? Everything around you is moving and you’re giving it your attention, but the entire time your attention is ALSO fixed on something else. What a BEAUTIFUL PICTURE OF WORSHIP!
This idea also goes perfectly with a verse from Psalm 16:8.
“I have set the Lord continually before me; Because He is at my right hand, I will not be shaken.”
The Psalmist is speaking about this continual perspective that keeps GOD in our sights FIRST before anything else. An everlasting preoccupation with God.
I pulled a really old clip from a sermon where I used some examples of what this looks like in a life of worship. If you’ve got 10 min – please watch it as we prepare to meet again on Sunday at Journey to continue the series “More Than Sunday.”
