His Banner Over Me Is Love

When Christians come together with hearts of gratitude to sing Praises to God, it truly is a beautiful sound, and I love it. God dwells in our praises and He delights in us as we praise Him (Psalms such as: 150, 115,103:1, ,22:3, 71:8, 91:1-16, and the list goes on). Worship enables me to renew my strength and mount up with wings like an eagle. It enables me to run and not get weary and to walk and not faint. Isaiah 40:31  

Worship has been described as: turning our face toward God and to kiss God with a heart of adoration. It is an intimate act, which honors our Saviour and exalts Him for all He has done and who He is. God is known by many names, such as: Saviour, Redeemer, The Rock, Good Shepherd, King of Kings, Lord of Lords, Truth, Life, Teacher, Provider, Healer, Friend, Abba Father, Majesty, Sovereign Lord, Holy, and Love. All these names depict an aspect of God’s character,  John 4: 24 states: “God is spirit, and His worshipers must worship in spirit and in truth.” What has worship got to do with hearing the voice of God?  

It has everything to do with it. For me it is in the silence, when I stop and just rest in God’s wonderful presence, I hear the Lord with clarity, it is the most intimate connection I have with God, it is a conversation where I am listening and hearing what He has to say. Silence really is golden.  

As we begin the new year, 2022, I would like to encourage each of us to put on our garment of praise and sing a new song to the Lord each morning and remember, “The Lord has done it this very day; let us rejoice today and be glad.” Psalm 118:24 NIV  

The jewel I found in writing this article is understanding what a privilege it is to acknowledge and honor God, in both collective and in private worship.  

Love and blessings for 2022
