My heart is confident, God, my heart is confident. I will sing; I will sing praises. Wake up, my soul! Wake up, harp and lyre! I will wake up the dawn. I will praise You, Lord, among the peoples; I will sing praises to You among the nations. For your faithful love is as high as the heavens; Your faithfulness reaches the clouds. God, be exalted above the heavens; Let Your glory be over the whole earth. – Ps.57:7-11
God’s faithful love and His glory are so far beyond what we can even think or imagine. Our hearts should be confident in that He is enthroned in power and glory… and they should be desperate in that His faithful love is of greatest, immediate need in our personal lives. Relentlessly singing, shouting, proclaiming, and heralding His greatness should be the theme of our life-song among the nations. The peoples of the world should hear a consistent, unified effort from the Christian community to make much of Him and less of ourselves. We should wake up the dawn singing His praise and shouting His goodness.
I long for the day when we will authentically worship God in such a way that His glory will fall on us and completely devastate us. More of Him. More of His glory. More of His goodness. More of His presence and power in me and through me. That’s the goal. Lord God, let Your glory fall.
Grace and Peace,
