How to dance?

Glorify, Worship, Grace, Hope, Faith, Love, Exalt, Holy, Righteous, Refuge, Ever Present Help, Friend, King, Lover, Jesus.
So many powerful words float around the "Christian World." And to be frank, even though my name is Adam, that is all those "powerful" words do...they float and do nothing. They have become words we say in passing; words we pray because they sound good; words that have lost recognition of their testimony (I'm not sure if that last line was communicated clearly).
What I'm trying to say is there is so much weight and substance to these words that we must not continue to make the kingdom about talk...but of power. (1 Cor 4:12)
I mustn't make His Kingdom void of power, void of experience, void of substance, void of truth. You know? I know it isn't us who heals the sick, raises the dead, restores all creation, but we must contend for it...right? I mean He asked us to do those things. (Mk 16) I don't know. If it truly is a "co-mission" then it takes two to tango...right? So, if the other isn't willing to dance - if I am not willing to dance, than the mission is void of...whatever - power, experience, substance, and so-on.

I write all of this to say, don't give up in contending, in fighting for what God has promised. Don't give into fear...give into faith. Don't give into self...give into Love. Don't give into the world Adam, give into Jesus.

So, how do we dance? Well, we start with a prayer, but it must be from our hearts...

Teach me how. How to make your kingdom about power.'Teach me your way, O LORD, and I will walk in your truth; give me an undivided heart, that I may fear your name. I will exalt you.' (psalm 86:11) I have nothing else worth exalting tonight, in this moment, just You. This is true of my heart...right now. I love you. I need you. I want you. Please Lord...

Like a tree.

I love both of these songs... "like a tree" & "found faithful".
Psalm 1:3
He is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither. Whatever he does prospers.

Psalm 52:8
But I am like an olive tree flourishing in the house of God; I trust in God's unfailing love for ever and ever.

Jeremiah 17:7-9
7 "But blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD, whose confidence is in him. 8 He will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit." 9 The heart is deceitful above all things and beyond cure. Who can understand it?

God, make us faithful...

In our Freedom He can live.

There is something to be said about living and walking in the "Freedom" of God, you know? His Freedom releases us into our desire to be like Him. His Freedom propels us forward toward good deeds which He prepared in advance for us to do. His Freedom awakens us to our destiny.

Eph 2:1As for you, you were dead in your transgressions and sins, 2in which you used to live when you followed the ways of this world and of the ruler of the kingdom of the air, the spirit who is now at work in those who are disobedient. 3All of us also lived among them at one time, gratifying the cravings of our sinful nature and following its desires and thoughts. Like the rest, we were by nature objects of wrath. 4But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, 5made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace you have been saved. 6And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, 7in order that in the coming ages he might show the incomparable riches of his grace, expressed in his kindness to us in Christ Jesus. 8For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— 9not by works, so that no one can boast. 10For we are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.

But there is something more about God finally being able to live and walk in our Freedom.

He is.

It's one thing to say that God is bigger, that God is stronger. But it's another thing to believe it and walk in it, even when the circumstances or the storms prevail and don't change.

Thought #1:
Maybe hardships make us stronger, or maybe weaker - so that He may become strong. (1 Cor12)
Thought #2:
Maybe storms become our testimony. And we overcome the enemy by the word of our testimony. (Rev 12:11)
Thought #3
Maybe we are not true worshipers until we are tested. Tested by this world for our love for One. (James 1:2-12)

I know this much, He is stronger than every circumstance, storm, hardship, trial that may come. I must believe. I must hope. I must worship. Worship Him not just for what He does or has done, but also because of who He is.
John 16:31-33
"You believe at last!" Jesus answered. "But a time is coming, and has come, when you will be scattered, each to his own home. You will leave me all alone. Yet I am not alone, for my Father is with me. "I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world."

I read this this morning.

Colossians 2:1-5
I want you to know how much I am struggling for you and for those at Laodicea, and for all who have not met me personally. 2My purpose is that they may be encouraged in heart and united in love, so that they may have the full riches of complete understanding, in order that they may know the mystery of God, namely, Christ, 3in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. 4I tell you this so that no one may deceive you by fine-sounding arguments. 5For though I am absent from you in body, I am present with you in spirit and delight to see how orderly you are and how firm your faith in Christ is.

A really good blog that I find myself reading a lot.

I know that everyone has seen the hillsong united video and heard the song healer, and I know that a lot of people don't like the song because of what happened with the guy that played it. (If you haven't heard the song, or seen the video it will be at the bottom, it's very powerful). For those of you that don't know the story of what happened, the man that wrote the song Healer was supposedly a cancer victim and was playing the song that he wrote and asking God to heal him from his disease. He had a disease, but it wasn't cancer. He had been lieing to his family and his church about cancer for years to cover up his true pain, and that was that he was addicted to pornography. He wanted attention from people, and prayer from people, so he told people that he had cancer instead of telling them about his addiction. More and more in the church I hear about people that have fallen into deep sin, and they can't get out of it no matter how hard that they try, and my heart breaks for them. Especially the guy that wrote this song. The cool thing about the song though, is that even though he wrote it about cancer, I truly believe that this song is going to bring healing to his life in ways that he didn't even know it was going to. God has amazing ways of taking things that you thought were going to go places and then he takes them even further then you thought they were going to go. My prayer for not only our church, but for all of the churches around the globe, is that we would always be who we truly are. That we would never hide who we really are and what we are struggling with. Everyone struggles with something, so lets be open about it and talk about it. When did church become about being as perfect as you can be while your in the church and then walking the rest of your life in sin? James 5:16 says, "Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective." I pray for the day that the church becomes a place where people can just be open and honest about what is going on in their lives, then the church can pray for them, then they can be healed, and then they can share their testimony and start praying for other people. We are His and because of His perfect love we don't have to be perfect and the quicker that we accept that the better.

True Worship.

True worship flows out of a hunger and thirst for God – not just for His handouts. WORSHIP IS DETERMINED BY OUR HUNGER AND THIRST FOR THE CREATOR NOT THE CREATED.

Why Another Blog?

Why create another blog?
Good question. Well, it has nothing to do with getting my agenda out there. It has everything to do with "His" agenda, and how He feels for us, and how we need to begin to feel for Him. John 15:9 - "As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Now remain in my love." Jesus' emotions are filled with fiery affections for us. He feels the same way the Father feels about Him. The second person of the trinity feels about broken human beings the same way that the first person of the trinity feels about Him. Stunning!

We also want people to know that there are other types of worship songs available. Sometimes we get caught up in our box of what we think worship music should sound like. We as the people of God need to recognize other parts of the body and celebrate them.

Here are various artists that we enjoy.

My hope is that this blog becomes a vehicle to the heart of God.
