Church; a place of worship. What is worship? Worship is the most outward expression of love, admiration, honor, thankfulness, and praise that we can give to God.
What happens in worship? During worship as you completely fix yourself on the King of Kings, you usually leave with answers to prayers, healing, freedom of things that held you back from forgiving, moving on, witnessing, reaching your full potential in Christ, etc…
Though worship is all about Him, He loves to turn around and bless us just because He loves us!
If you are attending a church that leaves you depressed, angry, feeling used and abused, being used and abused, feeling belittled and worthless, how can you effectively worship the Lord there? Some would say you’re focusing on yourself and you’re selfish… I say, God isn’t pleased by this behavior from churches and it’s time you move on.
Church is a place of worship! It is Holy ground where God can show up and leave you feeling comforted, loved, special… Like you belong to Him. Church is not a place for rude sticky notes, judgmental looks, rolling eyes, strife, deception, lying, witchcraft, manipulation, or any other trait the devil beholds.
I encourage you to embrace your time with your God. Embrace the love He has for you! Realize that you are special, He wants to use you to promote and grow His kingdom, and He has wonderful special plans for you!! Realize He wants to pour out His favor and Honor on you who love Him. Then, walk in these things! Walk in the true freedom of Christ and stop allowing yourself to be bound up by things that hold you back from being all God wants you to be!
