You have to make a determination to worship your face off even if you do not feel like it. You have to realize that no matter how you feel, He is still GOD! Whether you had a good day or not, He is still the Creator of the universe. He is worthy of all our heart singing to Him with everything in us no matter how we feel.

The Bible says, "Enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise..." (Ps. 100:4). If you want to get into God's presence there is only one way to get there. You cannot beg to get in. You cannot just hope to get in. You must worship your way in.

You must be determined to go for it. Do not be satisfied with having just a "pretty good time" with God. You have to go all the way. Sing to Him with all you have, even if you are the only one around.

Grab some of the Psalms and read them to God as if you wrote them yourself. Read them, or shout them, as if they are coming from your heart! Say it until you mean it. You will be amazed at what will happen in your quiet times when you are determined to enter into real worship: God will show up and blow your face off.
