Today I am basking in the goodness and mercy of God, and in His worthiness of my praise. I have been asking Him to teach me how to worship Him as He deserves to be worshipped. Today, as I was worshipping during church, I realized how selfish that noble-sounding request really is. I saw that I have been wanting to worship God more fully, in part, because of what I would get from it, how it would make me feel! I am so selfish! Even in my worship of God, I am thinking of me! I realized that to worship Him "in spirit and in truth", my only desire must be that He received the praise and worship of which He is so worthy. And He is worthy - beyond what I can ever comprehend, or express.
Lord, please humble me. Help me deny my selfishness. I do long to worship you as you deserve to be worshipped. How thankful I am that even when I don't get it right, in all of my selfcenteredness and sinfulness, You still love me - undeservedly, immeasurably, eternally!
