(Psalm 63:1-8 CEV- YOU are my GOD. I worship YOU. In my heart, I long for YOU, as I would long for a stream in a scorching desert. I have seen YOUR power and YOUR glory in the place of worship. YOUR love means more than life to me, and I praise YOU. As long as I live, I will pray to YOU. I will sing joyful praises and be filled with excitement like a guest at a banquet. I think about YOU before I go to sleep, and my thoughts turn to YOU during the night. YOU have helped me, and I sing happy songs in the shadow of YOUR wings. I stay close to YOU, and YOUR powerful arm supports me.)
This passage truly humbled my heart today because I know how much it means to GOD for us to sometimes just calm and quiet the hustle and bustle of our day to love on HIM and just give HIM a moment of praise. If you’re anything like I can be sometimes, I just get so busy and caught up within myself that I forget to stop for a second and simply say, “GOD, thank you.”.
I now make it a point to set aside time during my prayer time everyday to not only say thank you, and to not only let HIM know that I thirst and hunger for HIS PRESENCE in my life, but I break down and become completely transparent with HIM letting HIM know that I’m desperate for HIM. I’m not a shouter when it comes to worship. I’m a crier, so I worship HIM the deepest and sincerest through my tears. And more often than not, those are the very moments that HE will allow me to feel HIS PRESENCE and hear HIS voice.
So today, I just wanted to remind you that, that intimate time that you spend with HIM letting HIM know how much HE means to you will bring about blessings in your life that you didn’t even ask or pray for. (Matthew 6:6 NIV- But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your FATHER, WHO is unseen. Then your FATHER, WHO sees what is done in secret, will reward you.)
It’s not how loud you shout that matters most to GOD. Sometimes it’s simply the gentle trail of the tears on your face coming humbly from a heart of praise that speak the loudest. Sometimes it’s simply that quietness in HIS PRESENCE that says, “LORD, I love YOU.”. Love on HIM today! Let HIM know that in your heart HE’S worthy of all glory and praise!
I love you guys!
