A Place to Worship - Jul 21 & 22

HAVE YOU EVER FELT DISCOURAGED?

TRUE WORSHIP CAN RENEW YOU

“I have found David the son of Jesse, a man after My own heart, who will do all My will.” Acts 13:22b NKJV

HOW DAVID ALLOWED WORSHIP TO RENEW HIM ON ONE OF THE LOWEST DAYS OF HIS LIFE.

Read 1 Samuel 30:1-27.

“So David and his men came to the city, and there it was, burned with fire; and their wives, their sons, and their daughters had been taken captive. I Samuel 30:3NKJV

1) HE WEPT AND GOT IT ALL OUT.

Then David and the people who were with him lifted up their voices and wept, until they had no more power to weep.” I Samuel 30:4 NKJV

 2) HE ENCOURAGED HIMSELF WITH WORSHIP.

Now David was greatly distressed, for the people spoke of stoning him, because the soul of all the people was grieved, every man for his sons and his daughters. But David strengthened himself in the LORD his God.”    I Samuel 30:6 NKJV

“Let us come before His presence with thanksgiving;”. Psalms 95:2a NKJV

·       WORSHIP TRAINS US TO RESETS OUR FOCUS.

“Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, And into His courts with praise. Be thankful to Him, and bless His name.” Psalms 100:4 NKJV

·       WORSHIP TRAINS US TO RELEASE GOD’S REFRESHING.

“But those who drink the water I give will never be thirsty again. It becomes a fresh, bubbling spring within them, giving them eternal life.””  John 4:14 NLT

“That no flesh should glory in His presence.” 1 Corinthians 1:29 NKJV

“That, as it is written, “He who glories, let him glory in the LORD.”” 1 Corinthians 1:31 NKJV

3) HE INQUIRED OF GOD AND GOT DIRECTION.

“So David inquired of the LORD, saying, “Shall I pursue this troop? Shall I overtake them?” And He answered him, “Pursue, for you shall surely overtake them and without fail recover all.”” 1 Samuel 30:8 NKJV

4) HE RECOVERED ALL.

“So, David recovered all that the Amalekites had carried away, and David rescued his two wives. And nothing of theirs was lacking, either small or great, sons or daughters, spoil or anything which they had taken from them; David recovered all.”  I Samuel 30:18-19 NKJV

5) HE REFRESHED OTHERS.

“But David said, “No, my brothers! Don’t be selfish with what the Lord has given us..” 1 Samuel 30:23a NLT
