Going Deeper with the Word – Worship Without Fear

Should acts of worship only be done in private? How should we worship when we are out and about in our community? 🤔 Let's discuss.

Welcome to “Going Deeper with the Word.” In this segment, we welcome people of all backgrounds, religious or not, to review the Word of God with me. The Word of God provides guidance, direction, and instructions for living our lives and walking with God. 

Today, we examine how God’s Word provides clear guidance and direction about worshiping without fear.

Let’s review examples of God’s Word that can lead and guide our steps and back up the principles we learned in today’s message. I will be reading scripture today from the Amplified Bible.

Here is our first verse:

Romans 8:26-27 AMP

In this verse, we reveal that there is no need to fear we are not praying ‘correctly’ when we bring ourselves in prayer before God. I know I have certainly felt this way many times, wondering what I should pray for and what I should not. We learn in this verse that the Holy Spirit, knowing what we need, will intercede on our behalf. I believe the most important thing is to be sincere in our hearts as we come before God. God knows our hearts and intentions and the Holy Spirit will be with us in our petition before God

Have you ever felt you didn’t know the right words to say in prayer? When you look back, do you feel as though God provided signs that He understood what you needed? Let us know in the comments. 

Let’s have a look at another verse.

But without faith it is impossible to [walk with God and] please Him, for whoever comes [near] to God must [necessarily] believe that God exists and that He rewards those who [earnestly and diligently] seek Him.

Hebrews 11:6 AMP

In this verse, we see the importance of coming before God with faith in His existence. In doing so, we need not worry what others will be thinking in our acts of worship. We should not be afraid of praying in public. We should not be afraid of fellowship with another where other people can hear words about our faith.

Have you experienced a situation lately where you hesitated to display evidence of your faith to other people in the room? What did you fear? Let us know in the comments.

Let’s look at one last verse.

for God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control.

– 2 Timothy 1:7 AMP

In this verse, we are reminded that God did not create us to have fear but to know we have power through Him. We have the capacity to love and have self-control over our actions. This verse reveals, once again, that we should not be fearful in our acts of worship. 

Let us walk forward in faith, knowing  the power of our worship and the power God provides to us. Ask God to equip you with the courage, discernment, and wisdom to carry out the acts of worship most important to you.
