Life is difficult and uncontrollable, our human emotions are fickle, and sometimes we feel stuck in an endless cycle of disappointment. If you find yourself in that state and just don't feel like worshipping God, you're not alone. David himself, a man after God's own heart, vacillated on his feelings of worship. No matter what our current emotions may be, the Bible plainly tells us to worship God with holy fear and awe. So what should we do when we don't feel like worshipping?
Don't try to fake your way through worship. In Matthew, Jesus calls the Pharisees hypocrites because they honor him verbally, but their lifestyles do not reflect a true adoration of him.

Wait patiently for God. We have a hard time waiting, don't we? While waiting often means that results don't occur as quickly as we would like, it does not necessarily mean passively sitting in the background. The Hebrew word for wait means "to seek eagerly." Like David, if you constantly seek God, he will find you.
