Isaiah 29:13 Wherefore the Lord said, Forasmuch as this people draw near me with their mouth, And with their lips do honour me, But have removed their heart far from me, And their fear toward me is taught by the precept of men: 14 Therefore, behold, I will proceed to do a marvellous work among this people, Even a marvellous work and a wonder: For the wisdom of their wise men shall perish, And the understanding of their prudent men shall be hid.
Too many talk but do not believe. Too much worship that is not genuine. We have learned the talk and forgotten the walk. We do what we do because someone taught us to do so. We are not doing it because we believe it with all of our hearts. Worship has become external. Worship is for show. Worship is no longer who we are and who He is. The only real respect we show for God is what someone told us we were supposed to do.
So God is going to do work. He is going to shock us into worship. We all need the experience of God. We can not live off of someone else’s experience or relationship. Our leaders will die. The smartest among us are not enough. We need to know and worship God from our heart. God is about to prove to us all who He really is. He is going to step in and wake us up. He is going to shock us. He is going to expose the false. He is going to show all that He really is God.
Do you worship God from the heart? Are you really a believer? Do you know God? If not you can today.
