John 4:24 God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in the Spirit and in truth.”

When we’re going through a difficult season or when God has recently done something mind-blowing, an emotional response is usually associated with our prayer, praise, and worship. Unfortunately, some believers get hooked to these feelings and think they need to recreate these emotions to worship or praise God. That’s nowhere in the bible.

We can praise God with a monotone voice. We can pray casually throughout the day instead of theatrically in the morning. We can worship God without shedding a single tear. God doesn’t care if we’re emotional while praying or worshipping Him. God simply wants our prayer, praise, and worship.

In fact, the less we try to force an emotional response, the more we can say we’re worshipping Him in spirit and in truth. The truth is, we may not feel like nor have the time to tap into all these emotions, but we’ve made a conscious decision to worship God.

Let’s stop trying to feel His presence or tap into our emotions every time we pray, praise, and worship. Just make the decision to pray, praise, and worship God because that’s what He requests of us.
