As I think of what to share with you this month, I am certain of one thing. The kingdom is the most exciting place to be in all the world! Where else do you get relationship with the creator, unending joy, purpose for living, the constant presence of God, favor, blessing, angels to protect you? .... and the list goes on.
We’ve been having some pretty strong storms in Texas and are in the middle of a pretty severe storm as I write this. When my little kids were getting a bit upset, I explained to them that angels were watching over us and there was no need to be afraid. I believe that completely! Psalm 91:11 says “For He will give His angels charge concerning you, to guard you in all your ways.” The 91st Psalm begins with, “He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.” The invitation is open to us daily to dwell in the secret place. He draws us by His goodness and mercy. I love the thought of abiding under the shadow of the Almighty. A shadow means the substance is near!
I have a question for you to ponder. What is the greatest gift God could ever give us? Is it any one thing, blessing, or any such thing? No, the greatest possible gift God could give is Himself. He is the ultimate, consummate, perfect gift. There is no earthly or heavenly thing that could compare to the essence of who He is. To be invited into the courts of the King as a son, a daughter, a joint heir, as a partaker of His divine nature is beyond amazing. All else is fleeting but He remains an eternal fountain of joy.
On the other hand, I believe the greatest gift God could ever receive is the worship and adoration of a redeemed soul. Sounds like a pretty easy thing to do... and I assure you that worship and living in the secret place has its benefits!
May God richly bless you as you dwell,
Pure Worship News....
Last weekend Gateway Church recorded a new song that I had written with the help of Thomas Miller called “Every Day I Live”. I was excited to see the congregation worship to a fun song that declares every breath, every heartbeat, and every moment is for Him.
Also, The Lion of Judah, is the First 3-D Faith-Based Animation to be released in theaters worldwide, June 3rd! I am excited to share this historical event with you because it is my first time being involved in a movie release, along with the Orignial Motion Picture Soundtrack (available on iTunes by searching: The Lion of Judah Soundtrack). I am featured on 2 songs in the movie, "Carry Me" with Kari Jobe and the theme song, "The Lion of Judah" , as well as the bonus feature on the soundtrack, "Once Upon A Stable" , which is the theme song for the award-winning Christmas prequel to, The Lion of Judah. The DVD will be distributed by Warner Brothers and will be available this fall in retail stores. Visit: www.JudahMovie.com for more information and to find a local theater near you.
