This Morning while sitting in my prayer closet, There was a stillness in the atmosphere. In that stillness; I began to feel something I had never felt before. I was feeling all the petitions and cries I made unto God in this tiny room.
I was still; In that moment I could count each and every breath I took. I remembered the depths of how many times in intercede for others. I felt my cries unto God.
I felt each and every tear. They fell upon me as though they were raindrops upon my shoulders. The tears of spiritual warfare, The tears of repentance, the tears of forgiveness, the tears of sacrifice, the tears of hopelessness, the tears of Joy, the tears of victory, the tears of love, the tears of compassion, the tears uncertainty, the tears of sorrow, the tears of thanksgiving, the tears for mercy, so many tears.
Each tear I cried In the natural was on behalf of those I passionately fought and pleaded to God for. I pleaded for his mercy and for his grace; for him to show himself strong and deliver his people.
In the midst of that silence I heard the Holy Spirit say; My daughter the thousands of cries you poured upon me; those tears fell directly upon my hands.
While I was making intercession for others and being obedient to the leading of his Holy Spirit. Those tears were petitioning for me. (I didn't know)
My tears in the supernatural were pleading my case for me. Wow! I've cried many times. While I was on my knees fighting for others, sometimes nations and yes I said nations. Unknowingly, my tears were fighting along with me and the angels were standing guard around my prayers following them up to be received by GOD. Those weeping eyes pleaded the buried hurts and concerns for me to God. Hallelujah!
I thought I was just pouring out. I thought I was thinking Just overwhelmed by the Presence of God and the Holy Spirit. I thought I was just an emotional passionate worshipper. Never did I think that my tears were working for me. Tears are a language only God understands. Crying my friends is not a weakness its an advantage it's one that in its sincerity will appeal to the hand of GOD.
Silently in my closet. I gained new understanding to the depth of worship. I understood that when I worship. It's really nothing to do with me or my flesh. But everything to do with my spirit man appealing to the Holy Spirit. The humility of Christ. I always thought it was about me giving God Glory; and although part of that is true. The Holy Spirit revealed to me that Worship Is about God Taking his Glory. He is already Glorious and majestic all by himself. Nothing I a mere human can give to God to make him any more wonderful or glorious. He already is Alpha and Omega who is greater than that? What is greater than that? No not one
Worship is nothing about us.
How selfish of us to ever think that we doing something for God. We don't do favors for God. We seek him for favor.
I am the one that needs him every single moment of every existence of my life. Worship is not about how well I sound, how eloquent I move, or even how great it may look or sound to others. Worship is the space between life and death that from the depths of my mind soul and spirit. I extended unto God seeking that he will inhabit my worship. Worship is an extension of my Love unto him; with regard that in space and time I can offer my worship as a sacrifice setting aside all things to Glorify him More.
It's when we worship that we delve in the manifold of his greatness and receive the fulness of his joy and love. We experience the touch of his embrace. It's in that worship that there is no division, vanity, self-centeredness, and presence of iniquity is dissolved. In worship there is an overwhelming sense of peace and Joy that man cannot produce.
It's compelling you to the Holy Spirit and it allows you to capture a taste Of God's Love and it's Pure. It's not loud and it's not bombastic. But it's powerful piercing through the calamity within your soul allowing a flow of truth and Holiness to enter in.
1 Chronicles 16 verse27-36
27 Honor and majesty are before Him; Strength and gladness are in His place. 28 Give to the Lord, O families of the peoples, Give to the Lord glory and strength. 29 Give to the Lord the glory due His name; Bring an offering, and come before Him. Oh, worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness! 30 Tremble before Him, all the earth. The world also is firmly established, It shall not be moved. 31 Let the heavens rejoice, and let the earth be glad; And let them say among the nations, "The Lord reigns." 32 Let the sea roar, and all its fullness; Let the field rejoice, and all that is in it. 33 Then the trees of the woods shall rejoice before the Lord, For He is coming to judge the earth. 34 Oh, give thanks to the Lord, for He is good! For His mercy endures forever. 35 And say, "Save us, O God of our salvation; Gather us together, and deliver us from the Gentiles, To give thanks to Your holy name, To triumph in Your praise." 36 Blessed be the Lord God of Israel From everlasting to everlasting! And all the people said, "Amen!" and praised the Lord.
I really don't know who this read is for today; but I want you to know that God Understands every thing you are going through. He hears your prayers, he sees and hears your cries. You are forever important to Him.
I want to encourage you that worship is important to God its not about your ability to perform but it is about the depth of your love in pursuit to honoring him.Go beyond the superficiality of what it looks like on the surface but dig down within your heart and praise him.He will speak to you and he will lead you into all truth. He is God he will never forsake you.
Psalms 126 verse 5-6
5 Those who sow in tears
Shall reap in joy.
6 He who continually goes [c]forth weeping,
Bearing [d]seed for sowing,
Shall doubtless come again [e]with rejoicing,
Bringing his sheaves with him.
