The Heart of a Worshipper - Portals for His Presence

The following scriptures are two of my favorite passages from the bible. The principles contained within them have become foundational truths in my everyday conversation with my Father.

Know that God does not listen to sinners; but if anyone is God-fearing and a worshiper of Him and does His will, He listens to him (John 9:31).

I will incline mine ear to a parable: I will open my dark saying upon the harp (Psalm 49:4).

Through studying the scriptures and by personal experience, I have learned as David did: God listens to, hears, and responds to those who honor and adore Him. This foundational belief is important in building a strong lifestyle of communication with God. Passages like these are where we are able to draw confidence that our prayers are not only heard, but answered. If He hears us, we know He will answer and we have exactly what we ask for in line with His desire (1 John 5:1).

While God is listening to the worshipper, the worshiper is extending himself, increasing his capacity for God's presence. The Worshiper bends toward God's mind, and  listening for His heart.  Consequently, there is an even exchangecommunicating or releasing to God and God communicating or releasing to the worshiper.  

The worshiping intercessor is listening for a prophetic word that may be sung, spoken, written, or played on an instrument that will insert the heart and mind of God into a circumstance or person to produce Kingdom results. During intercession, with the help of the harp (our worship), we are able to open up that which has been previously closed.
