Since this is such a new blog, I want to keep things consistent. I would like to do a #GamersDevo post, every Sunday. Of course, depending on what my readers would want to see, or what you request, I will talk about certain Christian topics like prayer, worship, the bible, answers to questions, the supernatural, angels, etc. If you would like to see a certain topic, please leave a comment below (I reply to every message) and I will definitely consider writing about what you, my reader, wants me to write about. I will put a worship music video here every week, so you can listen while you read also.
Worship is a part of my life, and I love praying with music (I’m a music junkie). To be honest, it brings an atmosphere, though it’s not required. This week’s video is from Jesus Culture: Unstoppable. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7pbxRz0AOho To worship, is to just come in prayer and worship your Creator. You just have to be real, and honest with God. He isn’t one that you can just “pretend” with, because He is God, He knows all and sees into our hearts. God cannot be fooled. If your actions and words are fake, He sees right through you and me.
23 But the time is coming—indeed it’s here now—when true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and in truth. The Father is looking for those who will worship him that way.
1 Samuel 16:7
7 But the Lord said to Samuel, “Don’t judge by his appearance or height, for I have rejected him. The Lord doesn’t see things the way you see them. People judge by outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.”
If you don’t know what to say, I have some practical suggestions that will connect you with God. You need to begin a relationship with Jesus Christ, and the only way to connect your spirit to His Spirit, is through worship and praise. It’s like the “gate” that you need to enter, so you can come close to Him.
4 Enter his gates with thanksgiving; go into his courts with praise. Give thanks to him and praise his name.
#1 – Just be real and honest. Tell Him how you feel, and ask Him to help you. Not just a list of things you “want”, but be honest. Whatever your struggling with, whatever obstacle your trying to go through, ask Him for guidance, wisdom and patience to get through it. He’s with you always.
#2 – Sing the lyrics to worship songs. These are worship leaders that spend time figuring out what words to write, that express their spiritual offering to Him. Just follow along, and it will connect you to Him in a deep way.
#3 – Read the bible. You can get the YouVersion app, or use Biblegateway (I use both). Or…you can just grab the one you may have at home or get one at any bookstore. I prefer the YouVersion myself, but I do have several copies at home.
Let me know what you think about #GamersDevo , it’s something I”m trying out. I will do my best to incorporate video gaming into these segments as much as possible, but I want it to be more God focused than anything. So in a way, this will be the “God” portion of “Games and God” you could say! Thanks so much, and please let me know what you think below or what you want me to write about next.
