Firstly, THAT THEY MIGHT BE WITH HIM.:Your number one assignment is to spend time with God .The reason you are chosen as a minister of God is to spend with God. No matter the amount of pressure or how much the duty of a minister might be trying to drag you away, they are secondary . Your primary responsiblity is to spend time with the one who has called you. Jn.4:23-24.
Nobody can say he fully understands God.When we get heaven we will probably know more about Him.However, there is something about the very being of God that tales us that He thrives on praise and worship. I have wondered why there are billions of Angels that do nothing other than to cry" HOLY,HOLY,HOLY, LORD GOD ALMIGHTY" It is as if praise and worship are to God as air is to the fish. From everlasting to everlasting, the Angels are crying, "HOLY,HOLY,HOLY,LORD GOD ALMIGHTY", non-stop. Many as they are, God is still looking for more people to join in praising and worshiping Him.
Ps.22:3 .But thou art holy , O thou that inhabitest the praise of Israel
It is frightening to say that if Hos people stop praising Him, then would be no where God to inhabit .This aspect of God is frightening and unexplainable if we do nothing at all than spend just one day praising God, we would see miracles that we can never dream possible . Rev.4:11 says we were created for His pleasure. Mt.6:9-13 The Lords prayer.much of it has to do with worshiping God .
All those mighty used by God regularly disappear to go and be in His presence, to go and praise Him. 1st Kg.17:1.
Here we see praise and communion with God .Jn.6:15,
As Jesus finished feeding the multitude ,He went to the mountain top to worship.He was there until all the boats left because He was lost in communion with His father.
When praise and worship is intense, it is not long before you hear,"thus says the Lord" 2Kgs. 3:11-16
Abraham constantly built altars four times from Gen.12:7 to Gen 13:18. The altar is a place of worship.It is where you meet with God . As far as God is concerned, worship is the greatest prayer. Learn to worship God and your journey to excellent would have started.
