I mentioned in my last post about people who are never wrong and how frustrating I get when I encounter such an individual. Well, my week continued to be frustrating, until today. A conversation with a friend brought up music by Brandon Lake. (I’ve mentioned him before in a previous post.) My friend sent me a link to a video on YouTube he has been enjoying. The video started playing and at first, honestly, nothing, but then, the video kept going, and things started to change.
Brandon begin singing a new song, and the more I listened to it the more it ministered to me. It drew me in, and the next thing I knew I was worshiping God. Whenever you worship God in spirit and in truth, you get caught up into his presence and your spirit gets energized.
“It’s who you are and the way you live that count before God. Your worship must engage your spirit in the pursuit of truth. That’s the kind of people the Father is out looking for: those who are simply and honestly themselves before him in their worship. God is sheer being itself—Spirit. Those who worship him must do it out of their very being, their spirits, their true selves, in adoration.” John 4:23-24 (MSG)
Brandon Lake introduced that new song, “Show Me Your Glory” by sharing something Bill Johnson said,
“When the glory of God comes into the room, nothing else is needed.”
A true and powerful statement.
The song broke through my frustration, refocused my thoughts on what is most important, God. Everything else going on grew strangely dim in the light of his glory and grace. So I challenge you right now to put on some worship music, or click on the YouTube link below, and turn off those electronic interrupters and just soak in the presence of God. You too will discover peace, comfort, love, and the proper perspective on whatever is going on in your life.
