Worship God as a Self-Feeder

Posted by Charles Billingsley on

One of the small joys of parenting comes when your children have matured enough to feed themselves.  No longer are you having to hover over their high chair with a baby spoon filled with blended vegetable ‘ick’ because they can now choose, chew and swallow their own bites of food.  However, if they only eat one meal a week, they would probably starve…or at the very least be extremely malnourished and unhealthy.  And yet, many Christians treat their own spiritual growth in this way.  Remember this, the key to your spiritual maturity and lifestyle of worship is to become a self-feeder.  One sermon on a Sunday morning is...

Worshiping down the right path

Posted by Charles Billingsley on

In God’s word we find many general guidelines to live by.  Here’s one of the most well-known: "Trust in the Lord with all your heart.  Lean not on your own understanding.  In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct your path.” The word “direct” means to “make straight or smooth.”  It gives the picture of one filling in the potholes on a highway before an important ruler travels the road.  I like that.  It means when we trust in the Lord with all our hearts and stop relying on our feeble wisdom and start acknowledging that His way is best, then He we will see that He has...

Worshiping at the Center of His Will

Posted by Charles Billingsley on

Have you ever wondered if you are living in the center of God’s will?  It can be difficult at times to discern exactly what His will is for us in certain situations, but one thing is for sure.  It is His will, first and foremost, that you Love Him with all your heart.  In His words, the greatest commandment of all is that we love Him with all our strength and with all our minds.  So the first step to living in the will of God is to fall in love with Jesus.  This alone will prioritize your life and cause you to make...

To acknowledge God is to worship God

Posted by Charles Billingsley on

Two times in Proverbs 3:5-6 the writer uses the word all.  Trust in the Lord with ALL your heart and lean not on your own understanding.  In ALL your ways acknowledge Him.  You know what it means to acknowledge God?  The word “acknowledge” comes from the Hebrew word “Yada” which means to “Know.”  So another translation of this phrase could be "in all your ways KNOW God."  In other words…if we want to truly learn to trust in Him, we must get intimately acquainted with His word and His spirit.  It is in doing this that we find He wants to guide us in every area of our lives.  Our lifestyle of worship should...

Are you smarter than God?

Posted by Charles Billingsley on

You know, it’s funny.  As Christians, we trust in the Lord enough to save us, but then we don’t trust Him enough to guide us.  You would think we would firmly trust that the God who has the power to transform our lives also has the wisdom to guide our lives.  But, the reason we don’t trust Him is because we are constantly entrenched in a battle of the mind and the will. God knows this, and that’s why He reminds us in Proverbs 3:5 to trust in Him and lean NOT on our own understanding. God is omniscient and He is sovereign.  Nothing catches Him by surprise. So trust...
