Day 11: 21 Days to the Eternal Husband

Day one (13).png

Dear His Beloved,

It only takes a few minutes of the news to be convinced that we are in the last days.

But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days.  People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy,  without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good,  treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God—  having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with such people. 2 Timothy 3

 Lovers of themselves....check. Lovers of money...check, Boastful, proud, abusive....check check. Ungrateful.......check, check, check,check. We certainly appear to be living in the times of Timothy!

However, In Acts 2:17 He also says that in those days I will pour out my spirit. As the evil rises up, the Spirit of the living God is poured out upon His people. Greater is He in us than he that is in this world, right? 

So perhaps instead of fearing what we see around us, we should expect the Spirit to be raining down on us? And maybe it already is? I love a good hymn don't get me wrong, but something is happening with worship music today unlike anything I have seen. Certain songs carry an anointing that almost takes you to the feet of Jesus. I was leading a women's retreat once and the worship was so anointed that I was coming undone. I then tried to take in what was happening around me, and I noticed several {probably most} women lost in reading the words on the screen and missing what was happening in the atmosphere. Accustomed to "singing" in church, they were fulfilling the ritual of worship without experiencing the heart of worship. There is certainly a difference in singing and worshipping, but it has only been in the last ten years that I have come to know this as truth......I was the girl lost in the pew remember? Ha! I might add....singing my little heart away!

So I wonder....have you experienced the presence of God through worship music?

Have you ever moved from reading the words to allowing the words to move you?

In all of my years of trying to be perfect, I found that the greatest transformation came when instead I just sat at the feet of Jesus and worshipped Him! 

Today, I encourage you to listen to this song "Grace To Grace!"

Become aware of the Spirit of God around you. If He never leaves or forsakes us then He is always there, we just don't always feel it. We must grow in our awareness of His Presence. 

How my soul will sing your Grace!

How wonderful! How Glorious!

My Savior's scars victorious!

My chains are gone. My debt is paid.

From death to life, from Grace to Grace!

I will sing your PRAISE!

The culture will drive you to perform, but He calls us to His feet!

In His Presence there is fullness of JOY! Psalm 16:11

In His Grip,
Ro
