Worshiping God In Your Daily Life: Easier Than You May Think


Worshipping God has gotten several people out of some very sticky situations. Jehoshaphat and the rest of Judah were under attack by several evil enemies. The Lord appeared to him and told him that He could deliver His people from the enemy without a battle. Jehoshaphat and the rest of Judah bowed in worship to God for this revelation. They later marched out to battle with their praisers out front, and God routed the enemy without a fight. Paul and Silas were in prison for spreading the good news of Jesus when they started worshiping in the middle of the night. At once, their chains fell off, and the doors of the prison were opened. More recently, in 2019, a group of Christians gathered in Florida to pray against hurricane Dorian which was headed straight for them. Through prayer and worship, this hurricane rerouted, and disaster was avoided.

Worship is essential, and it can save people in very tough circumstances; I think most of us can agree on that. But what is worship? Most people think of singing when they think of worship, and that’s true. All of the stories above are times when people worshiped through singing, but that is only a small piece of what worship truly is. Worship is more than just singing; worship is praying, serving, loving others, reading God’s word, remembering Him in both good and bad situations. Worship is trusting God and giving up our hearts. When we think of worship as only singing, we drastically limit what our worship is. That’s why worshipping God in your daily life is easier than you’d think. It’s because we can and should worship God through everything we do.


Webster’s dictionary defines worship as showing honor or reverence towards a deity. Every day, in every situation, worship is an option. In the good and the bad, there is an opportunity to worship God. The opportunity is there; the question is will we take it? The Bible is full of stories where people worship God through all times of circumstances. At its core, worship is remembering who God is and what He’s done for you and me. Psalm 77:11-13 says, “I will remember the deeds of the Lord; yes, I will remember your miracles of long ago. I will consider all your works and meditate on all your mighty deeds. Your ways, God, are holy. What god is as great as our God?” When we choose to remember God, that is the start of honor and reverence. Everything else builds off of this.


Worshipping is easier than most people think. You may even worship God more than you think you do. But the hard truth is, none of us worship enough. There is not enough time in heaven or earth to worship God in His entirety. God is the creator of all things; he made us and saved us through His son. We are indebted to Him and should spend the rest of our days worshipping Him. And thankfully, we can do that in so many ways. With a mindset directed towards showing God honor and reverence in everything we do, we can worship God in every breath.
