But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth. (John 4:23–24)


Elevate your focus by practicing the next two creative, but simple, ways to connect with God:

Number Four:

Worshiping God is in the Spirit and in truth, adoring His greatness and character. We know Him because His Word has revealed His nature, and the Bible is full of accounts where He has manifested His goodness to many. Musicians will use their instruments in worship, dancers will dance, artists will create, poets will compose…Use your gift to honor God today. (Psalm 95:6–7, 150, John 4:23–24)

Number Five:

Singing to God from our hearts or along with a praise and worship recording will create an atmosphere of heaven as we lift our voices to God. It can refresh our hearts, refocus our minds on the important, and pull us out of our fleshly thoughts. Singing anointed praise songs to God heals broken hearts, refreshes our souls, excites (or calms) our spirits, encourages us and fills us with God’s presence. (Psalm 149:1–4, Ephesians 5:18–19)


Heavenly Father, help me to refocus my priorities and my perspective to honor You and put the things that are important to You first in my heart and life. Holy Spirit, guide me in worshiping the Father today in spirit and truth. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
