“And it is impossible to please God without faith. Anyone who wants to come to him must believe that God exists and that he rewards those who sincerely seek him.” 
Hebrews 11:6
To really worship we have to admit that there is a power that is bigger than us.  A power that is not only larger, but also better and stronger.  Not only is this power all of those things, but this power is deserving of our adoration and devotion.  We know that this “power” is God.
Worship requires a response.  God makes the first move, He draws us to Himself with His kindness.  In order to engage in worship we are required to respond.  What will we do?  We present ourselves to Him. Nobody can really dictate exactly what that looks like.  The beauty of a relationship is that it is unique to the people who are in it.  Every relationship looks different.  God stands with His arms extended and offers Himself completely to us.  We have to choose at what level we will interact with Him.  How open will we be?  The best part about a relationship with God is that there is only one flawed participant…US.  Every other relationship that we will ever be in involves 2 flawed participants.  God is perfect.  He is love.  He is eternal.  He doesn’t change.  He stays the same.  When we are faithless He remains faithful.
There are 2 things that must be settled in us before we can even come to Him:
First:  We must believe that He exists
Second:  We must believe that He rewards those who sincerely seek Him.
We also have to believe that what he rewards us with is good.  When we ask Him for bread he won’t give us a snake or a stone.  He gives good gifts to His children.
Matthew 7:9-11 says, “You parents—if your children ask for a loaf of bread, do you give them a stone instead?  Or if they ask for a fish, do you give them a snake? Of course not!  So if you sinful people know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give good gifts to those who ask him.”
When we come together as a body of believers we take time to worship God.  I encourage you to come into that time of worship expecting God to reward you for your pursuit of Him.  Knowing that He is God, He is good and He loves you.
“And so, dear brothers and sisters, I plead with you to give your bodies to God because of all he has done for you. Let them be a living and holy sacrifice—the kind he will find acceptable. This is truly the way to worship him.”  Romans 12:1
