Heal me, O the LORD, and I shall be healed; save me, and I shall be saved: for you are my praise.
I’m not used to charismatic expressions of faith, but I love them!
We don’t regularly wave our hands at church or dance during service, so I am not in the practice of worshipping that way. However, there have been times in my life when, with no community of praise anywhere in sight, I felt overwhelmed with a need to charismatically worship.
With no one around, I have danced in God’s name. I have lifted my arms up with an eagerness to just somehow get closer to His presence. And, really, I don’t do it enough…not just for God’s sake, but for my own.
Jesus said the rocks would cry out if people didn’t praise. I haven’t heard them yet! I believe that at every moment someone somewhere is lifting up His name. The spirits of people all over the world are prompted to praise God.
There is a constant song of adoration going up. When one stops, another is so inspired with thankfulness or nature’s beauty, God’s power or His forgiveness, His clever timing, or great love that someone somewhere feels compelled to lift their hands, bend their knees or project their voice with praise. God is our healer. He is our rescuer.
Don’t miss your prompting to join the song.
Thank You for being My Healer and Rescuer.
In Jesus’ Name, I pray, Amen.
