This question is one of the top 5 questions I am asked. “What do you do when you don’t feel like worshipping?”
Well, I still worship.
I have to. If I worshipped God based upon my newest emotion, I would rarely worship. If I could only worship what I felt, when I felt it, I would most always be worshipping myself.
It’s a lesson I re-learn on a weekly basis: God is worthy of worship, whether I feel like it or not.
His worth-ness, His deserving-ness never changes. He is always worthy. He is always good. He is always powerful. He is always God. Always.
Therefore, my praise and my worship and my allegiance is to be never wavering either.
What do I do when I don’t feel like worshipping? I still worship, because God’s worthiness hasn’t changed.
Plus, it serves to be a whole different experience of worship than when I do feel like it. It gives me a chance to be honest, open and exposed before God. I can say things like, “God, I am way too exhausted to make this happen. But I know you’re good. I have nothing left to give, but I know you are still in control. I am angry, frustrated, upset, and confused about what is going on in my life right now, but I know that you still love me. Oh how you love me.”
That, my friends, is the most real and insecure form of worship.
But He is still worthy. He is so worthy.
So we do it.
*What season of life are you in? Are you in the season of worship that you can feel? Excitement that motivates your song?
*Or are you in the season of complete and utter despair. You can’t even think about singing of the goodness of God because you don’t see it in your life…yet.
*Or maybe you're in between.
It’s ok. All of them are ok. But we're in this thing together. So let's worship.
