The “Tabernacle of David” Amos spoke about was a prophecy about a new form of worship instituted by King David where worshippers worshiped the Lord day and night instead of once a year. People would enter into God’s presence from the heart, rather than from the Tabernacle. It was a more intimate form of worship than had ever been seen. That is the pattern for all believers today as well. God wants to restore a lifestyle of unending, thanksgiving-filled worship in your life so you can operate in the power of His presence in all areas of your life and overcome Satan. Worship is a condition of the heart. A spirit that is thankful can receive more. God wants to revive all that the enemy has tried to steal, kill and destroy in your life. He is a God of resurrection power, of raising the dead to life and He will do the same in you. Worship is the key to new life.
It is God’s desire to bring back to life, health and vitality the things that have collapsed or fallen into disrepair in your life. Because God is a God of purpose, your life has a specific purpose as well. The primary purpose of the believer is to worship, to minister to Him with thanksgiving. You were created to worship. Worship is a weapon of our warfare because God dwells within your praise (Psalm 22:3), and when He is there- that’s all you need! The worst times of your life are the times to worship the most.

If you struggle to worship Him, or to feel connected in worship, you will find yourself struggling in every other area of life. If you are looking for victory, or a miracle, or a fresh word from Him, it will be found in worship. The strongest you will ever experience the power of God is in His presence. Worship opens the gates to His presence. (Psalm 100:4) Everything you need is found there. What if you don’t “feel” God in your worship? Worship more! Believers must walk by faith and not by what we feel (2 Corinthians 5:7). It is a strategy of Satan to reduce you to what you feel, especially worship. Worship is not about you. Worship is exclusively ministry unto Him, nothing else. In His presence is all you need. He will do the rest to restore, revive, rework all that concerns you. Don’t be fooled into walking by what you feel in worship- just worship!
Thought for today
“I am the Lord your God who brought you out of the land of Egypt; open your mouth wide, and I will fill it.” (Psalm 81:10) The Lord has already brought you out of captivity. Even if you are still walking out of it, “open your mouth” and worship, thanking Him in faith for your freedom. He will fill your worship with a testimony of revival and victory as you thank Him for what He has already done. Worship is your way forward- get into His presence and don’t leave. That’s it! Stay in worship and let God take care of raising the dead.
