This is your year of Divine Presence and Double Honors
Oh come, let us sing to the Lord; let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation!2 Let us come into his Presence with thanksgiving; let us make a joyful noise to him with songs of praise! 3 For the Lord is a great God, and a great King above all gods. 4 In his hand are the depths of the earth; the heights of the mountains are his also. 5 The sea is his, for he made it, and his hands formed the dry land. 6 Oh come, let us worship and bow down; let us kneel before the Lord, our Maker! 7 For he is our God, and we are the people of his pasture and the sheep of his hand. Today, if you hear his voice, (Psalms 95:1-7)
(Derek Prince expounded Psalm 95 to explain how to enter the presence of God. He said God requires that we bring Him gifts whenever we come into his presence, material and spiritual, but most importantly the spiritual gifts of thanksgiving, praise, and worship. Thanksgiving relates to God’s goodness; praise relates to His greatness and worship relates to His holiness! Without thanksgiving we cannot have access to His gates, without praise we cannot enter his courts and without worship – an attitude of humility, bowing, kneeling, quietness, and listening – we cannot hear His voice which is His presence)
