Webster defines adoration as paying honors to a divine being; worshiping God; or addressing one as God – demonstrated by external means. This is followed by a description of how people have expressed adoration and worship through the centuries and EVERY expression involved MOVEMENT! Bowing, prostration, turning, covering or uncovering, dancing, the bringing of gifts. Ways we have shown “profound reverence” to gods, kings, queens and others.
This really struck me because I’m such a mover and children are movers by nature 🙂 That our worship is not meant to be passive and stagnant. It is not just a though process of focusing our minds on God, it is meant to be that which causes us to physically respond to our reverence to God, like Miriam, David and so many more. I don’t think I’ll ever worship God again just sitting and singing words, there is so much more to give to really honor Him as the King of the Universe!!!
