WORSHIP

WORSHIP, ADORATION, REVERENCE. CONNECT WITH GOD AS YOU MINISTER TO HIM THROUGH YOUR WORSHIP. JUST LIKE DAVID'S WORSHIP WAS GOD CENTERED, FOCUS YOUR ATTENTION ON WHO GOD IS AND REMOVE THE DISTRACTIONS. TAKE TIME TO UNDERSTAND GOD IS WORTHY AND DESERVES YOUR PRAISE. DAVID'S WORSHIP FOR GOD WAS UNMOVED, HE WORSHIPPED THROUGH EVERY SEASON. THEREFORE, WE BELIEVE WORSHIP IS A POWERFUL WEAPON, PRACTICE WORSHIPPING GOD IN THE MIDDLE OF THE STORMS AND IN JOYOUS MOMENTS.
