God fills a father with joy when he worships the Lord
The Bible speaks often of worship and invites you to come with a pure heart to worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness. There are many reasons the Lord is worthy to be praised: His power, His majesty, His righteousness, and His love among them. And worship, the act of acknowledging God’s strength and benevolence, is part of your responsibility and privilege as a Christian. When you honor God with worship and come to Him with an open heart, you will be blessed and filled with His presence. When you begin each day with worship and prayer, you will be reminded to walk closely with Him. Diligently seek to honor Him throughout your day, and you will be blessed.
Give unto the LORD the glory due unto his name: Bring an offering, and come before him: Worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness.
O come, let us sing unto the LORD: Let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation. Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving, And make a joyful noise unto him with psalms. For the LORD is a great God, And a great King above all gods.
O come, let us worship and bow down: Let us kneel before the LORD our maker. For he is our God; And we are the people of his pasture, and the sheep of his hand. To day if ye will hear his voice
