II. God Knows Everything
He knows when you want to worship and when you do not.

God knows when you need help. He is powerful enough to help no matter what danger we are in or what help we need.
God deserved our praise and worship.
Let’s give it to Him.
Remember that worship is more about God than it is us. He is God. We are not.
