But the hour comes, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeks such to worship him. God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.
– John 4:23-24
Thoughts on Today’s Verse…
This is very crucial. If we want ourto be approved by the Lord, we should have an honest heart and should quiet our heart beforehand. Because when we pray to God is also when we worship God. On the one hand, before we pray to the Lord, we can read His words to understand His will. Then, we can pray to Him according to what He actually wants to achieve in us and His current will. In this way, we will receive the Lord’s answer easily. This is also a way to use our heart and honesty to worship God. On the other hand, when we pray, we should seek how to speak reasonably, how to not make empty, big talk, or casual vows, or blindly demand from God as if we are His creditors. Such kinds of prayers can’t receive God’s answer. If our prayer is to please the Lord when we don’t know His will, we should quiet our heart and speak the words within our heart to God but should not hide our thoughts; we should have a seeking and obedient heart but should not ask God to change our practical environment. This way, our prayer can get the Lord’s answer easily. He will enlighten and guide us to know His will in the things we meet, because He sees our honest heart.
