Day Five: Position of Worship

Let’s read aloud together the following passages:

2 Samuel 12:20 NIV, 16:14b NRSVUE
He went into the house of the LORD and worshiped. Then he went to his own house… and there he refreshed himself.

1 Peter 2:9-10 (NIV)
But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. Once you were not a people, but now you are the people of God; once you had not
received mercy, but now you have received mercy.

King David was called as a servant of the Lord and a worshipper. Things all started to go wrong when King David was not where he was supposed to be – alone, isolated, restless, and bored. He neglected his calling as king and worshipper. After King David, turned, repented, and received forgiveness, he then prioritized worship within his royal household. His relationship with the Lord and others was restored.

Let’s pray for those in our small groups and ministries who need to be restored and brought back into the house of the Lord. Let’s cry out to the Lord to restore his worshippers in our churches and cities.

Prayer: Lord, I worship you. Thank you for your mercy and grace that opens my eyes to see you. I give you all my heart, soul, mind and strength. In Jesus’ name, amen.

Let’s worship our God who has rescued us; let’s sing to “Resurrection Power“ by Chris Tomlin Redman (click here).
