We can expect God to provide everything necessary to make worship possible. We children of God must ever be dependent upon God, for we have no resources of our own. We are as impoverished in worship times as a baby unable to provide its own bottle at feeding time. God, the object of our worship, also becomes the inspiration of that worship. He has imparted His own Spirit into our hearts to energize that worship. All that is due Him comes from Him. His glorious Person evokes admiration for and honor of Him, as He imparts His nature into me.
The capacity of the artist to be an almost entirely self-absorbed person is startling. We can mask it in a hundred ways, even with veils of altruism and empathy, but the litany of “me” keeps a relentless refrain.
The true measure of loving God is to love Him without measure.
Space is as important as content, and silence as important as singing. Our music and art should be filled with more beauty, more grace, and definitely more space. In the layer beneath the text God speaks to us; in the silence, we hear God’s heartbeat.
As a leader, I must resist using my team for personal gain, but rather position myself for their gain. Making room on the stage for their destinies to become a reality. It’s because the people on my team are called to influence spheres I will never have access too. As leaders, if we don’t think bigger than our personal destinies, nobody will last in our environments. Brilliance is birthed in an atmosphere where leaders become the biggest encouragers in the room, not just the biggest personalities, voices, and opinions.
To really be gripped by your identity in God’s greatness you must wade out of the shallow waters of self-absorption into the deep waters of praising him at all times for all things
God is a heart reader, not a lip reader
Worship is not just the words, but the way you walk, the things you do, the things you say and the things you think.
Some people become tired at the end of ten minutes or half an hour of prayer. What will they do when they have to spend Eternity in the presence of God? We must begin the habit here and become used to being with God.
The more you pray, the less you’ll panic. The more you worship, the less you worry. You’ll feel more patient and less pressured.
