I’m just posting a song today sung by Bonnie Deuschle & Celebration Choir called God is in this Place. I love this song since the choir sings in my Zimbabwean Language “Shona” when they say “Mwari vari pano” which translates to “God is Here”. There’s just something about African praise. I love the drums and so songs with a drum beat make me feel like I can hear the heart-beat of God.
How many of us just need to know that God is in this place? When we worship, He inhabits in our praise. Can you imagine that you invite the presence of the Holy Spirit simply by just worshiping Him with your mouth or instrument of praise?
King James 2000 Bible
But you are holy, O you that inhabit the praises of Israel.
God is Here when we lift our hands, when we give Him praise. Let us go back to the heart of worship. Worship brings about intimacy and connection with our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. That’s why I love the song I posted in my previous post called Heart like Heaven by Hillsongs United. The beat in that song just makes me feel like I can hear God’s heart thumping. There is no measure that knows God’s worth in our lives. God is AWESOME! 😀
I don’t know about you, but I cannot do without the presence of God in my life. I draw away from people that suffocate or grieve the Holy Spirit when they’re around me. My spirit is so sensitive that sometimes I cringe at the sound of discord. I’m not talking about someone singing the wrong note (because that can happen), I’m talking about the heart/spirit of the person singing is out of order. If you sing from a place of anger…I cringe. If you sing with arrogance, I cringe. But when someone sings at that place where there’s pure adoration and love in that person’s heart, I rejoice. You can’t pretend worship. It’s either you have a heart that seeks to worship God in Spirit and in Truth, or you’re just a clanging cymbal wanting others to hear you out because you think you’re all that and much more. I just love basking in worship mode. Like I said, I usually get my answers when I’m in that place. God reveals Himself to me in and through Worship. If you want to get closer to God, then seek Him with all your heart. When you seek Him, you will find Him.
So I came out to meet you, Diligently to seek your face, And I have found you.
I love those who love me, And those who seek me diligently will find me.
22 You worship what you do not know; we know what we worship, for salvation is of the Jews. 23 But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him. 24 God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.”
I pray that this song blesses your spirit today. God bless you everybody! 😀
