Rhapsody of Realities, REAL WORSHIP—BEYOND FORM OR RITUAL, Tuesday, February 21st. 2023 by Pastor Chris

Thine, O Lord, is the greatness, and the power, and the glory, and the victory, and the majesty: for all that is in the heaven and in the earth is thine; thine is the kingdom, O Lord, and thou art exalted as head above all (1 Chronicles 29:11).

Some people don’t understand what worship is and so they miss out on its blessings and benefits. Worship is the recognition and appreciation of the goodness, blessings, kindness and righteousness of God. It is the appreciation and recognition of His character, and therefore, the confession of His character. Hence, true praise is worship.

When, for instance, you give thanks to God and say “Lord, you’re good; you’re kind; you’ve blessed me; you’re righteous,” you’re defining, recognizing, appreciating and promoting the character of God. The Lord appreciates that because it shows who He is in your life; it separates or distinguishes Him from everyone and everything else.

When you thank Him for His goodness, provision, blessings, and all the wonderful things He’s done in your life, you’re saying “Oh Lord, I know it’s you who did all these things.” You’re attributing those beautiful works to Him, and the necessary result is that He’ll do more for you and reveal Himself to you in a greater way.

Worship always brings a greater revelation of God. This is why we worship only God, and not men, angels, or any other creation. How important worship is! It should be for you something beyond a form or ritual. It should be a time of true recognition, perception and a real encounter with who God is.


Dear Father, I lift my hands in worship and offer to you sacrifice of praise and thanksgiving from my spirit. I adore you, Lord, for you alone are God, the everlasting King of glory, the only wise and true God, gracious and kind, holy and righteous, ever loving and forgiving. Thank you for the blessing of the New Testament in Christ Jesus. Hallelujah!

Revelation 21:22 And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it. Psalm 96:9-10 O worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness: fear before him, all the earth. 10 Say among the heathen [that] the LORD reigneth: the world also shall be established that it shall not be moved: he shall judge the people righteously. John 4:24 God [is] a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship [him] in spirit and in truth.

I do not get sick; I have the life and nature of God in me. Divinity is at work in me, and all things are working together for my good! I refuse to fear sickness or death. Out of my belly flows rivers of living water.



I affirm that the greatness, the power, the victory, the majesty, and the kingdom are mine because the Lord has conferred these on me! There’s order in my life! My life is excellent and full of glory, crowned with honour; and the pleasure of the Lord is prospering through me. The Holy Spirit is my coach; thus, my spirit is guided into all truth! I have wisdom for ministry, for my job, my business, my relationship, finances, health, and family! Life is not a mystery unto me because the Holy Spirit teaches me all things. Hallelujah!

The truths of God are unveiled to my spirit, and by these truths, I walk in the realms of glory. I am an associate of the God-kind; a partaker of His grace, glory, and the expression of His righteousness. All my needs are supplied according to God’s riches in glory by Christ Jesus, in spite of inflation, recession, and the global economic meltdown. Hallelujah!

I’ve been given all things that pertain to life and Godliness. God has set eternity in my heart; therefore, the kingdom’s dreams and ideas prosper in my hands. I’m fully convinced that the Gospel is God’s saving power to everyone who believes, and therefore, I’m resolute in my commitment to win more people to Christ, snatching many out of the kingdom of darkness into the glorious liberty of the sons of God. Hallelujah! I am divinely backed by the host of Heaven, and the Spirit of excellence is at work in me, both to will and to do of God’s good pleasure. Glory to God. Hallelujah!

Nigeria is an Enigma. The capacity to gain an accurate and deep understanding of her is undoubtedly God’s endowment to us, her citizens. As a citizen of this lovely nation, I’ve spent decades of my life trying to understand this, Mirage. Hope someday, this Mystery that houses about 250 million blacks will be globally understood, widely accepted, and given the opportunity to play its vital role in the world stage. So, help us God! #NigeriaDeservesBetter #AfricaDeservesBetter
