But let the uncompromisingly righteous be glad; let them be in high spirits and glory before God, yes, let them jubilantly rejoice! ~Psalm 68:3
God spoke to me last night at Encounter; a night that focused on all the different aspects of worship, from clapping and raising our hands, to bowing down, to dancing, to shouting, to praying and singing new songs freely from my heart to God's.
At the end of the night, this verse in Psalms was placed on my heart in the midst of singing, so I went back to my seat to look it up. Could it have been any more clear about God's perspective on our night? And then it hit me...this immediate "knowing" of where God wants to take me next...take me now.
In my blogging, I've always focused on my words, what I feel in my heart, or what's taking place in my life on that given day. In the moment that I read the above verse, I felt Jesus ask my heart this question, "What about My Words?" I didn't kick the dirt and exclaim, "Oh man, I've blown it again?" Actually, I stopped and really thought about His question. What about His words?
So, starting today, that's what I'm focusing on for "now". I want to record what God speaks to me through His Words for the time being. I may just include scripture, I may include any other thoughts He gives me to go along with scripture. But my focus will be on what He's saying...not me.
