In the Greek New Testament, the word "therapeuo" means "to heal". But it also means "to adore" or "to worship". This is amazing because two very important things are connected: worship and healing. All the people who were healed by Messiah worshipped Him. But the key here is not that those who are healed worship the Lord, but that those who worship the Lord are healed. There is healing in worshiping the Lord. People go through life carrying wounds in their hearts and scars in their spirits: rejection, anxieties, fears, and other infirmities of the heart. And people spend years in therapy trying to get healed. Now the word "therapy" comes from the same Greek word "therapeuo," which doesn't just mean therapy or healing, but worship. Do you want healing? Get into His therapy. Spend time every day truly worshiping God. When you are tempted to feel sorry for yourself, or to focus on your problems and fears, worship the Lord instead! Thank God and praise Him! Then you will be applying God's therapy because God's healing comes in worship.
From Message #672 - The Cosmic Centurion
Let your worship of the Lamb flow like a river. Open the flood gates of your heart and pour out His praises. Lay any and all troubles at His feet, our God reigns.
