Revival Worship

 "Revival Worship"
 
“Honor the Lord for the glory of his name. Worship the Lord in the splendor of his holiness.”
Psalm 29:2 
I sense renewed hearts for Worship in our churches today. Worship is critical because it's the key to God's presence. We were made to worship. On every page of the Bible is the idea of worshiping God. Understanding the true meaning of Worship and aligning ourselves to that in order to bring God glory! When we lift our hands in praise and worship, we break our Spiritual jars of perfume over Jesus. The fragrance of our praise fills the whole earth and touches the heart of God.
 
 "O, magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt His Name together."
Psalm 34:3

A Gift of Age

"I will be your God throughout your lifetime–until your hair is white with age. I made you, and I will care for you. I will carry you along and save you." Isaiah 46:4
 
In our culture, aging is often viewed as some kind of disease. Maybe if we ignore it and don’t talk about it, it might go away. Like we can somehow push back the edges of mortality. Growing old should be one of our life goals. We should never fear aging, or try to gloss over our uneasiness about approaching it. There is a reason we want to grow old; so that younger generations can observe the ebb and flow in our lives, which speaks of God’s power at work in us.
"Now also when I am old and grey headed, O God, forsake me not; until I have shewed thy strength unto this generation, and thy power to every one that is to come." Psalm 71:18
 
What does age really represent? Days and nights spent living your life, coming through a myriad of experiences that sometimes seems so monotonous, only to be interrupted by life-altering surprises and unforeseen tragedies. Your age reflects years of collected wisdom. Your age also represents wonderful experiences. You’ve exchanged some of the energy of youth for them, but the older you become the more wealth you have in your treasure trove of memories.
"Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?" Matthew 6:27
 
"Mother Nature" and "Father Time" may have brought you backaches, baldness and bifocals and probably a wrinkle or two. Your hair is changing color and your body is not quite so nimble. None of these things give you any less value! Time is the one resource that cannot be renewed. Life zooms by, so why carelessly waste your time worrying about the perils of aging? If you are still alive, God kept you around for a reason. Find out what it is, and then pour every day and every ounce of energy you have left into it.
 
You can be ‘old’ at twenty-five and ‘young’ at eighty-five. Any measure of health and happiness enjoyed at any age is a gift from God. The memories you’ve made along the way are precious and priceless. Thank God for every year he’s given you. Live and love every breathtaking moment of your life until He calls you to your heavenly home. It is called "A gift of age."

Fear Meets Faith

 
 
When He had finished speaking, He said to Simon, "Put out into the deep water and let down your nets for a catch." Luke 5:4
 
Fear Meets Faith... I wonder how many times God doesn't answer our prayers because he is simply waiting for us to take the first step of faith? The depth of the water into which we sail depends upon how completely we have cut our ties to shore. No successful journey of faith is possible without access to living water. It requires you to leave the shore and launch out into the deep. Are you standing ankle deep in the river of Jesus? Walk in a little deeper. See where it will take you. Don’t let fear keep you on the river banks. Listen to God’s Word and then do as Peter did: “But because you say so…I’ll obey.”
