It's a Good Thing

It is a good thing to separate yourself and spend time with the king. Even on a Sunday morning, and even though you are probably going to church, it is still good to separate yourself from the business of your routine at home and enter in to gods presence. It is a good thing to separate from your responsibilities at church before you come to church and take time to focus solely on ministering and worshiping God! This advice is not just for musicians and singers, but for any Christian doing the work of the Lord.

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!

Song- Your Love (c) 2011 Ileana Reich

Title : Your Love


Verse One:
I’m running to my hiding place safe and secure
I reaching to my Savior’s arms, I trust and endure
Now I’m ready to climb the mountains
Now I’m ready to swim the deep seas,
Yes, I’m ready to face the giants
Because your love gives me peace

Chorus One:
Your love gives me peace
It’s your love that gives me peace
Stand and see the Salvation of God See the victory
Stand and see His mighty hand Covering you and me


Verse Two:
I’m coming to my secret place darkness has to flee
I’m standing in the holy place, Jesus calms my fears
Now I ‘m ready to walk in purpose
Now I’m ready to shout the victory
Yes I’m ready to face the giants
Because your love sets me free

Chorus Two:
Your love sets me free
It’s your love that sets me free
Stand and see the Salvation of God
See the victory
Stand and see His mighty hand touching you and me

Song- Nothing Too Great or Small (C) Ileana Reich

Verse 1
Bring your pain, bring your stains
Give them all to Jesus
Bring your cares, bring your doubts
Give them all to Jesus
Lay them down
He receives them all
Nothing is too great or too small
So bring them now

Chorus:
He healed the leper, made the blind to see
He walked on water and set the captives free
All things are possible to Him who believes
So bring them now

Verse 2
Bring your tears, bring your joy
Give them all to Jesus
Bring your praise, bring your gifts
Give them all to Jesus
Lay them down
He receives them all
Nothing is too great or too small
So bring them now

Chorus:
He healed the leper, made the blind to see
He walked on water and set the captives free
All things are possible to Him who believes
So bring them now.
