How many times have we heard that we should spend time with God in the morning? Personal worship has been the subject of many sermons and vespers over the course of our lives here and before Southern, but why is it so important?
Have you ever heard the saying, “You become like the five people you spend the most time with?” If that is true, then God should definitely be someone that is in your top five.
By beholding, we become changed, and God can change us for the better. What would happen in your life if you became so connected to God that his light shined through you in your day to day life and you reflected His character to everyone around you? What if you were able to actually surrender all to Him?
Misael Dominguez, alumnus and I Cantori member, said, “I personally made a commitment in my heart that I would start and end everyday spending time worshipping God. I am learning to send more of my problems to God and know that He is working for my good. I feel a sense of relief knowing I don’t have to do everything by myself.” We need to rely on God to function in this world. Without Him, we are nothing. We are lost without him.
The most important reason to have personal worship is that He wants to spend time with us. The God who created the whole universe and keeps it functioning wants to spend personal time with you.
The Bible reminds us in Matthew 6:6, “But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.” The reward is a closer walk with Him.
