I haven’t studied a lot about the Ark of the Covenant, but I read recently about the Children of Israel leaving Egypt and heading for the Promised Land. They were carrying the Ark with them. The interesting thing is that every sixth step they would stop and worship!
My goodness! That’s a lot of worship! What if we interjected more worship in between our requests that we make to God? I don’t know about you, but that would involve more praise and worship from my heart to God!
It’s so easy to take up a lot of our prayer time asking God for things! And I think that’s fine! He wants us to ask Him for what we need! But what would happen if we made a conscious effort to praise and worship Him more? I am reminded of the song that says, “Praise the Lord. He can work through those who praise Him. Praise the Lord, for our God inhabits praise. Praise the Lord, for the chains that seem to bind you, serve only to remind you, they fall powerless behind you, when you praise Him”.
So let’s purpose in our hearts today to give Him praise!
