Today’s devotional in the Love Expressed series is about prophetic worship.
Prophetic worship is meant to allow God’s reflection to be seen in us so that others may respond and come to know him. It is speaking, singing or acting under the inspiration of the Spirit of the Lord which, in turn, shows our complete surrender in worship to GOD.
Prophetic worship is a way to live life so that God’s heart, words and voice are made obvious to those around us. We see this kind of worship in the psalms of David. The Lord was his passion and he expressed that passion through instrument and song, lifting his voice to GOD who is the source of all things.
Worshiping God in a prophetic way can change the heart of the worshiper. Samuel said the following to Saul about a supernatural worship experience: "You will meet a group of prophets coming down from the high place with a stringed instrument, a tambourine, a flute, and a harp before them; and they will be prophesying. Then the Spirit of the Lord will come upon you and you will prophesy with them and you will be turned into another man." (I Samuel 10: 5-6). This passage of scripture is a picture of prophetic worship as well as a demonstration of the power that is released through the prophetic.
Prayer is the key in hearing God’s voice and His Spirit when moving in prophetic worship. Prayer is our vital line of communication between us and our Heavenly Father. Eliminate the distractions in your life that keeps you from hearing HIM. Open your heart to Him so that you are able to receive and experience the transforming work of the Holy Spirit in your life.
Choose to be a prophetic worshipper. Declare your love for GOD in ways you never have before. We all have the ability to hear the voice of God. Allow Him to permeate your worship.
