“The hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him.God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.”
John 4:23-24
Jesus was saying that God seeks those who worship Him with an open heart and an attitude that is transparent before Him, who doesn’t try to hide anything from Him.
If we want an intimate relationship with Him, we will tell him what we have done, and not hide anything from Him.He loves us so much we can be open with Him!

“And the Lord said unto Gideon, By the three hundred men that lapped will I save you, and deliver the Midianites into thine hand: and let all the other people go every man unto his place”.
Judges 7:7
The story of Gideon teaches us three things…it teaches us that when you add God to the equation, the normal rules do not apply.
In God’s plan strength does not lie in numbers.
Secondly.. It is not about us. God had Gideon to send people home.”lest Israel gaunt themselves against me, saying, Mine own hand hath saved me.
Thirdly…What you see..is what you get. The people God uses to win victories are not always the most cultured or the best educated.

“PRAISE YE the Lord, Praise the Lord , O my soul. While I live will I praise the Lord: I will sing praises unto my God while I have my being.”
Psalm 146:1-2
We can never Praise or Thank God to much.
When I “think” about the goodness of God and all He has done for me…..it makes me Praise Him!
