God is a Spirit (a spiritual Being) and those who worship Him must worship Him in spirit and in truth (reality)” John 4:24, Amplified.
The children of Israel gladly praised the Lord after they crossed the Red Sea. They gave God glory after they saw how He delivered them from the Egyptian army. The challenge came when they walked through the wilderness. They began to lose heart, lose faith and their joy in believing. God allowed them to go through the wilderness to show them their heart. But because of Jesus, we have a new heart and a new mind. He doesn’t take us through the wilderness to try our hearts, we go through and it proves the supernatural presence of a God truly resides in us. Because of Jesus, you have a different spirit. You are not like the Israelites who lost faith and confidence in God the moment things became difficult. You are like His servant Job who bowed down and worshiped the Lord after losing everything. You are discovering the presence of God and His strength within you. You are clinging to Jesus and He is clinging to you tightly. Your worship is not conditional. It’s not based on whether He answers your prayers. It’s based on Him being your Lord and King.
