In the first 5 verses of Psalm 63, David gives some great advice on how to make worship meaningful:

“O God, You are my God; Early will I seek You; My soul thirsts for You; My flesh longs for You In a dry and thirsty land Where there is no water” (v.1) – Worship begins with a deep longing to be with God.

“So I have looked for You in the sanctuary, To see Your power and Your glory.” (v.2) – Anticipation for worship heightens as one is searching for the right attitude in which to worship.

“Because Your lovingkindness is better than life, My lips shall praise You. Thus I will bless You while I live; I will lift up my hands in Your name.” (v.4- 5) – True worship cannot be contained and will express itself in the praising of God.

“My soul shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness, And my mouth shall praise You with joyful lips.” (v.5) – Worship culminates in the filling of the soul.
