worshiping warriors

This painting is the first painting of people I have done in a gazillion years!

Childlike Worship by contemporary artist Sue Kemnitz

I feel so strongly that it is where the Lord is drawing us to. Worship like a child.

David dances to my mind. A man after God’s heart. And a man who worships, completely letting go of himself. One who danced with crazy passion before the Lord.

Moses. Whose face glowed with the light of heaven after worshiping God face to face.

Joshua, too. He loved to stay in the Tabernacle after Moses and everyone else had left. A simple love of being in the Lord’s presence.

And Jesus. He slipped away often to be in the presence of his Father. Adoration. Trust.

These are all exceptional, brilliant even, examples of worshiping.

And yet, for a season or longer, I think we are called to be childlike in our worship.

  • Simple.
  • Focused. On Him and Him alone.
  • Joyful. Spin, twirl, jump, dance.
  • Pure. Filled with Spirit and truth.

The painting is not of children worshiping. It is of us, worshiping like children. Totally abandoned to Him. I am confident that this is the warfare of our day.

Yes! Amen.

“But the hour is coming, and is now here, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for the Father is seeking such people to worship him. God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth.”  John 4:23-24

Question: What does your worship look like today?
