Having this attitude of consecration and worship sets us up for success, instead of the failure that many Christians fall into, which is to make their service in God and what they do for God the relationship with God. This of course will not work because it's a counterfeit relationship. Nobody wants to be shipwrecked, but unfortunately this happens too many Christians on and off again until they learned this principle.
For the Lord has called us to minister to him, oh singers and musicians. For the Lord has called us to even Concecrate our instruments and lay them down and get into his presence.
Since I'm a worship leader, I am often learning music and singing songs. So I can worship God during these times, my total focus is not on God in those moments, but instead, they are focused on the measures and went to come in etc. Though I have set this time aside to learn music for the service of the Lord, it is still not the one-on-one time that God richly desires from us.
I've become aware that there are several ways to pray and spend time with God, but I am learning to spend time listening to his voice and just lifting up his holy name. We were created to worship the king of kings and the Lord of lords. And I believe that this desire to commune, to fellowship, and to engage in a dynamic loving relationship with our father, where he talks to us and we can talk back is a reality for those who want too!
What do you really want a relationship with God? Do you want to know him more? Do you want to hear his voice? Or are you looking to see your position in the church elevated or perhaps maybe you are ministering but looking for the praise of other people? Friends is a good thing to separate ourselves and spend time worshiping God for who he is. Friends, readers it is a good thing to set our hearts on the Lord and listen to fresh before we get going and doing our thing or his thing for the day! If we learn to listen and spend time, our feet will definitely be walking with Jesus!
