Why do you work? To provide for yourself and your family right? Do you know God has already promised to provide for you?  Why do you worship? Because it is who you are, a worshiper. It is what you were created to do – worship. You are created to be a son/ daughter of the most high. God created you in His image and likeness. Before God commanded you to do, He made you to be. Worship is not necessarily doing, it is being. Worship is not something you have to do, it is something you get to do. When you worship, you connect with your source, you connect with yourself, you connect with your creator. You are made full when you work, but you are made fully whole when you worship.

Worship is not just about speaking to God, it is also about listening to Him. Listening for that still small voice. Worship is about coming away from the noise, and asking, Lord: what are you doing now? Worship is about being alert to the Spirit of God, knowing a word from Him can change the trajectory of your life for the better. Worship is everything. Worship is holding God as the object of your affection and respect.

Work is gratifying, Worship is edifying. Work is God promising to provide, Worship is God commanding you to draw near to Him. Work is about executing someone’s vision, Worship is about getting orders from headquarters (heaven). Work is about occupying till Christ comes, Worship is about being in the presence of God continually. Work is about work, and worship is about rest. Work is good but worship is even better.  There can be no meaningful work, without worship. As power is nothing without control, so is work nothing without worship. As speed is worthless without direction, so is worship worthless with worship. In life, you will have to do both if there ever comes a time when you have to choose between either, choose worship over work any day.

And God said , Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth – Genesis 1:26
