Worship isn’t a fast song, getting the blood pumping or the excitement built,
Worship isn’t a slow song of somber reverence
It isn’t necessarily even a song
But it can be a song
And since I like to sing, since music is my medium for deep-heart things,
my worship often comes out in a melody, usually with words
It isn’t about the song being loud or being soft
to make it worship (true worship, the kind the Father is listening for…)
“Worship is when your heart touches your Father” (Tommy Bates)
Have you ever started singing to the Lord and the love poured out of you so strongly you suddenly became aware that He was right there, in Person, giving you His complete and undivided attention? The Presence. There is nothing like it. He inhabits our praises…
So. The question in Amos 5 gets me every time: when was the last time you sang to Me?

So, you’ll know it when you hear it, because you’ll know when you have touched His heart.
