Thoughts on Today's Verse....
God seeks true worshipers. He seeks those who long to praise him authentically and spirit to spirit. To help us in our quest, he gives us his Spirit to help us worship (Philippians 3:3; Jude 20; Romans 8:26-27). Most of all, he wants us to genuinely worship him — worship him according to his will and with all of our heart.
Loving Heavenly Father, thank you for your Holy Spirit who is interceding even now to perfect this prayer. My heart thrills at the knowledge that you not only know me, but that you desire me to come into your presence. Please accept my feeble words and hear the emotion of my heart as I say "Thank you!" for all you have done for me. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.

If we have a healthy fear of God, Scripture says we'll have these five characteristics:
1. We'll take our spiritual growth seriously.
When Paul says, "continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling," the "fear and trembling" part means deliberately, seriously, and with commitment.
2. We'll take God's Word seriously.
God looks favorably on those who "tremble" at His word. If we tremble at God's Word, we'll heed His Word above all others and be "doers" as well as "hearers." Isaiah 66:2b; James 1:22
3. We'll trust God's wisdom.
We'll never "lean on" (i.e. depend on) our "wisdom" or the "wisdom" of our world. Proverbs 3:5-7
4. We'll share Christ.
We'll understand the importance of persuading others that Christ is the only way of salvation. 2 Corinthians 5:11
5. We'll hate sin.
We'll turn from evil, pride, arrogance, and ungodly talk. Proverbs 8:13
Which of these five would you like to ask God to help you do better?

"We did not ask for this room or this music. We were invited in.
Therefore, because the dark surrounds us, let us turn our faces to the light.
Let us endure hardship to be grateful for plenty.
We have been given pain to be astounded by joy.
We have been given life to deny death.
We did not ask for this room or this music. But because we are here, let us dance."
