Worship Him! - Missionary Weapons

When you were under the fig tree, I saw you —John 1:48

Worshiping in Everyday Occasions. We presume that we would be ready for battle if confronted with a great crisis, but it is not the crisis that builds something within us— it simply reveals what we are made of already. Do you find yourself saying, “If God calls me to battle, of course I will rise to the occasion”? Yet you won’t rise to the occasion unless you have done so on God’s training ground. If you are not doing the task that is closest to you now, which God has engineered into your life, when the crisis comes, instead of being fit for battle, you will be revealed as being unfit. Crises always reveal a person’s true character.

A private relationship of worshiping God is the greatest essential element of spiritual fitness. The time will come, as Nathanael experienced in this passage, that a private “fig-tree” life will no longer be possible. Everything will be out in the open, and you will find yourself to be of no value there if you have not been worshiping in everyday occasions in your own home. If your worship is right in your private relationship with God, then when He sets you free, you will be ready. It is in the unseen life, which only God saw, that you have become perfectly fit. And when the strain of the crisis comes, you can be relied upon by God.

Are you saying, “But I can’t be expected to live a sanctified life in my present circumstances; I have no time for prayer or Bible study right now; besides, my opportunity for battle hasn’t come yet, but when it does, of course I will be ready”? No, you will not. If you have not been worshiping in everyday occasions, when you get involved in God’s work, you will not only be useless yourself but also a hindrance to those around you.

God’s training ground, where the missionary weapons are found, is the hidden, personal, worshiping life of the saint.

Welcome to Worship Him! 
This blog is a work in progress, just like all of us. 
 I have given this blog to Him for His glory and His perfect will to be done. 
This hop is not about gaining followers.
There is just 1 simple rule:
Worship Him!
How many ways can we find & acknowledge Him in our everyday lives?
He blesses us, gives us wisdom, provides for our needs, 
guides us in our every decision, if we will only surrender and let Him.
You can link to a simple picture of a blessing, post your thoughts, 
a devotional, a song, anything that
acknowledges and gives Him praise is acceptable for this hop.

You don't have to follow this blog or anyone else, unless you want to. 
You don't even have to post the button anywhere. 

Any link posted that doesn't acknowledge and/or give Him praise will be deleted

Get the InLinkz code here if you want to post it on your blog.
