    David had the secret chords with which he accessed the throne of grace. He was an unashamed, undeterred worshipper who despite being an earthly king forgets his throne – to exalt the THRONE of the KING of kings. Even while he erred as a sinner (an adulterer and a murderer), with a broken spirit and a contrite heart of repentant worship – he was still revered as a man after God’s heart… David had the kingdom keys! True worship comes from a grateful heart, and from the heart, true worship is consummated – because God is a spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and in truth. Worship is an intimate experience whose original Greek interpretation (proskuneo) means “to kiss the lips of God”.

If an earthly father who could be imperfect knows how to give good gifts to their children, how much more would our heavenly father give good gifts to those who ask of him? Even the most evil of fathers would get vulnerable to the request of their little baby at the sound of “DADDY”! You know God seeks such pure intimacy with us – as his children as well. Go ahead and “ABBA” him up this week and always! Happy fathers’ day! …excerpts of Pastor
