I was listening to a preacher one day, whom I just saw first time. My eyes being the first sense responded and acted a critic. He looks foreign for our native land but speaks very native because he is a local, then my eyes continuously observed. Later he started to speak, this time, my ears responded, listened to every word he says. Although, with every word I find to be familiar with, my understanding questions the authenticity of all that he is saying, battling my mind if I should trust and receive or bar to ignore and let the words passes through. Surprisingly, it was my moment that passed through, spending it listening to the words he preached, which is either I receive to question or receive to acknowledge. While during the service It is he who asked a question, we are meant to respond. I was as well waiting for myself to speak respond with my tongue out of my mouth, my other senses, and so it did with the crowd. I shouted Amen! Oh wow where did that come from? The time went on and on and bible verses were spoken. Miraculously every word, strong as the edged sword, I was stricken. And I find no way not to accept what is in the bible. My being was brought wanting to expand with it.
My spirit uttering yes!
Let us praise God for his glorious grace, for the free gift he gave us in his dear Son! (Ephesians 1:5)
Sing to the LORD! Praise the LORD! He rescues the oppressed from the power of evil people. (Jeremiah 20:13)
Praise him—he is your God, and you have seen with your own eyes the great and astounding things that he has done for you. (Deuteronomy 10:21)
Praise the LORD who has given his people peace, as he promised he would. (1 Kings 8:56)
The LORD is my strong defender; he is the one who has saved me. He is my God, and I will praise him, my father’s God, and I will sing about his greatness. (Exodus 15:2)
I will tell of the LORD’s unfailing love; I praise him for all he has done for us. He has richly blessed the people of Israel because of his mercy and constant love. (Isaiah 63:7)
Those who preach must preach God’s messages; those who serve must serve with the strength that God gives them, so that in all things praise may be given to God through Jesus Christ, to whom belong glory and power forever and ever. Amen. (1 Peter 4:11)
Sing to the LORD, all the earth; proclaim his salvation day after day. Declare his glory among the nations, his marvelous deeds among all peoples. For great is the LORD and most worthy of praise; he is to be feared above all gods. For all the gods of the nations are idols, but the LORD made the heavens (1 Chronicles 16: 23-26)
I was aligned honoring God. Later, I found myself moving my arms and legs dancing with every beat during worship. I smell the spirit of God rising up with our praises. But the service has to end. Amazingly enough I was highly spirited, filled and fulled, I went home.
There is not a moment we spend time to God that will be wasted. God will find a way to align our body and spirit. All we need to do is come to him, carry no worries and doubts, and rest it all to him.
Evil may come strong, but we have to be willing to fight it, and God will very much be willing to defend us. In him, we will find Victory in the name of Jesus, whom God sent and showed how weak our body can be, but Jesus who lived it, showed us a way, that beyond the press we can come clean to the father in heaven through the ways he taught us, the right way of living, God’s righteousness.
