We were created to worship something greater than ourselves; we absolutely need to worship the One on the throne. All creation was created by the Creator to worship and glorify God as can be proven by the following texts:
Psalm 19:1– The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork.
Genesis 1:31 – And God saw everything that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day. 1 Corinthians 10:31 – Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God.
We are supposed to worship God not because He is insecure or self-centred. He actually does not need our worship. We are the ones in need of His presence. When we truly worship God, we are fulfilled and satisfied. Joy is the result. If we have nothing to worship or live for, our lives wither away. When we do not praise and worship God, we invariably seek pitiful and pathetic counterfeits such as envy, gluttony, greed, lust, pride, sloth and wrath.
When we realize the worth of God, we give Him anything, everything. We give up everything. We relinquish control of our life to Him. We allow Him to be Lord, and to be in charge of everything. Nothing else matters but Him. We need to be struck by the Lord in His splendour: “Thus saith the Lord, the heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool: where is the house that ye build unto me? And where is the place of my rest? For all those things hath mine hand made, and all those things have been, saith the Lord: but to this man will I look, even to him that is poor and of a contrite spirit, and trembleth at my word” (Isaiah 66:1, 2).
