WORSHIP SYMPOSIUM

This is happening on Sunday. My husband is speaking about "Worship as a ministry" . Please do say a prayer for him. I get anxious when he is invited to speak because  I'd rather see him lead the worship. But this is another opportunity to share and to minister so we said yes all for God's glory!!

Psalm 33

Psalm 33New King James Version (NKJV)

The Sovereignty of the Lord in Creation and History

Rejoice in the Lord, O you righteous!
For praise from the upright is beautiful.
Praise the Lord with the harp;
Make melody to Him with an instrument of ten strings.
Sing to Him a new song;
Play skillfully with a shout of joy.
For the word of the Lord is right,
And all His work is done in truth.
He loves righteousness and justice;
The earth is full of the goodness of the Lord.
By the word of the Lord the heavens were made,
And all the host of them by the breath of His mouth.
He gathers the waters of the sea together as a heap;[a]
He lays up the deep in storehouses.
Let all the earth fear the Lord;
Let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of Him.
For He spoke, and it was done;
He commanded, and it stood fast.
10 The Lord brings the counsel of the nations to nothing;
He makes the plans of the peoples of no effect.
 
11 The counsel of the Lord stands forever,
The plans of His heart to all generations.
12 Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord,
The people He has chosen as His own inheritance.
13 The Lord looks from heaven;
He sees all the sons of men.
14 From the place of His dwelling He looks
On all the inhabitants of the earth;
15 He fashions their hearts individually;
He considers all their works.
16 No king is saved by the multitude of an army;
A mighty man is not delivered by great strength.
17 A horse is a vain hope for safety;
Neither shall it deliver any by its great strength.
18 Behold, the eye of the Lord is on those who fear Him,
On those who hope in His mercy,
19 To deliver their soul from death,
And to keep them alive in famine.
20 Our soul waits for the Lord;
He is our help and our shield.
 
21 For our heart shall rejoice in Him,
Because we have trusted in His holy name.
22 Let Your mercy, O Lord, be upon us,
Just as we hope in You.

King Uzziah :as long as he sought the LORD, God made him prosper

2 Chronicles 26:5: “[King Uzziah] sought God in the days of Zechariah, who had understanding in the visions of God; and as long as he sought the LORD, God made him prosper.”

January 7th, 2014 by Pastor Ed in devotional
 
Here’s a great truth in King Uzziah’s life, which every believer on the planet should follow as a model for their life: “.” This is a promise of God that will be true for any person who applies it. In this chapter we find a list of what God did for King Uzziah, including giving him military victories, a growing national agricultural industry, and a strengthened national defense.

That God desires to abundantly bless our lives is scripturally true. But it is also true that God hates a prideful heart. He doesn’t ask us to think of ourselves as nothing, but to think of ourselves in proper relationship to Him. The principle says that as long as we seek God in our lives, our lives will prosper. They will be eternally significant, which is of course the definition of true significance. When our life is spiritually dependent on God, we get out of this old world everything we are supposed to. God did bless Uzziah greatly but the sin of pride in Uzziah brought his life to a tragic end. It is a classic example of what happens to a man who gets too big in his own eyes. As long as Uzziah walked with God, God fought his battles; but when he saw himself as important enough to do whatever he wanted, that blessing was removed.

In the Battle of the Wilderness, during the Civil War, Union general John Sedgwick was inspecting his troops. At one point he came to a parapet and gazed out in the direction of the enemy. His officers suggested that this was unwise and perhaps he ought to duck while passing the parapet. “Nonsense,” snapped the general. “They couldn’t hit an elephant at this dist—.” A moment later Sedgwick fell to the ground, fatally wounded.

“LORD, we remind ourselves of where You have brought us and where You want to take us. We recognize that we are nothing apart from You. Please keep us humble and seeking You this day.”
