“Only in the act of praise and worship can a person learn to believe in the goodness and greatness of God.” – C.S Lewis
“This little light of mine, I’m gonna let it shine. Let it shine, let it shine, let it shine.”
“Jesus loves the little children. All, the children of the world.”
“He walks with me, and talks with me, and he tells me I am his own.”
We’ve heard them.
We’ve sung them.
The question is, Have we believed them?
Worship is one of the top ways I feel the most connected with the Lord. Prayer and worship. The thought recently came to me, am I truly living out and believing the words I am singing during worship? I think back to all the songs I sang growing up in a christian household, family, and my journey into ministry. Yes, even those children choir songs. What a time of joy that was! Looking back, the songs we often sang when we were younger hold such importance.
A famous hymn, “He Walks With Me (in the Garden)”
Can we bring that back? Can today’s generation gather and sing this? Can we hear these words and be reminded of the truth behind them? We belong to the Father, the Master, WE ARE HIS. We live in a world where we need the reminder of how desperately in need of the cross we are. We need to be reminded to shine his light. We need to remember he loves ALL his children.
Lastly, you may cross paths today with someone that just needs someone to tell them that he walks with you, talks with you, and calls you his own. Will you share that with someone today? You never know whose life can take a pivotal turn just by being told the truth.
For we are the temple of the living God. As God said:
“I will live in them and walk among them. I will be their God, and they will be my people.”
2 Corinthians 6:16 NLT
Jesus, thank you for worship. Thank you for using music as a vessel to know your truth. Thank you for the connection we can have with you through your songs. May people hear of your love. May people hear of your truth. May more people come to know you and seek you. May I praise your name and declare it to all nations. May I listen to the words and trust in them. Thank you for walking with us, talking with us, and calling us your own. For we are fearfully and wonderfully made by a King. Amen.
