In any season, worship is one thing: Ministry to Him. Yet worship has many functions in the life of the worshipper. For the believer, our ministry to the Lord keeps our connection to His Spirit strong, flowing, and alive. It ignites the power of spiritual warfare, breakthrough, miracles, answered prayer, and so much more. “In blessing, I will bless you,” the Lord spoke in Deuteronomy 22:17 – and He means it. You worship- He’s got the rest!
Yet, even with all the power of God available as we live within His presence through worship, we all experience seasons of trouble, trials, difficult choices, difficult people, confusion, pain, and waiting.
When we struggle, one of the first things the enemy will attack is our desire to worship. Why? Because he understands its potential for his absolute defeat even better than we do. So, we must force ourselves at times, past our flesh, to worship the Lord in all seasons, and for all reasons!
So, how can you worship the Lord and minister to Him in a more specific manner than you might in another season? Remember, worship is one thing (ministry to the Lord) but it can look different for each believer in different seasons we all walk through.
