Why is it so hard for us to worship God? He is our creator, so we wouldn’t even be here if it wasn’t for him creating us. Let me give some other reasons why it shouldn’t be hard to worship him. This is just a list of some of the things he gives us….
1.       Unconditional love
2.       Grace
3.       Holy Spirit
4.       Peace
5.       Joy
6.       Faith
7.       Hope
8.       Strength
9.       Salvation
10.   Eternal life
11.   Forgiveness
12.   Rest
The list could go on and on. All of these things are because of God’s mercy for his people and we don’t deserve it.
Question: “Why don’t we deserve it?”

Answer: “We are disobedient to God’s word.”
Just knowing all of the things that he does for us we should have thanksgiving in our hearts and give God all the praise. God is our creator which is why we should bow down and worship him only. He is exalted above all other gods. Any other gods are just idols. <<< Notice that “gods” is lowercase. >>>

All people should be worshiping God to give him the glory and honor that he deserves. We can worship publicly such as in a congregational setting or in private such as in our homes. Our worship should be focused on God and him alone. Don’t get caught up and people pleasing worship. Our worship can be done through reading the bible, praying, dancing, singing, and helping others. Our deepest worship will come when we are able to give thanks to God in acknowledge him for all that he has done, doing and is going to do.
