1 Samuel 16:7 “…For not as a human sees, does the One God see. A human sees the visible yet God sees into the heart”
It was never your reaction in a church service but rather your reaction to circumstance that is your highest form of worship. This inner heart reaction is what the Lord is looking for and is the aim of all His dealings with us.
Hebrews 4:12 “For we have the living Word of God, which is full of energy and it pierces more sharply than a two-edged sword. It will even penetrate to the very core of our being where soul and spirit meet! It interprets and reveals the true thoughts and secret motives of our hearts”
A heart that reacts in praise and moves in faith during the most difficult of circumstance becomes a key that will open every door in time and eternity. Life is about choice not circumstance. In the middle of any circumstance you can choose to bow your heart and be released from the prison of the fear of the here and the now.
2 Timothy 1:7 “For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind”
The love of God will transform you into a lover of souls. This supernatural love will allow you to see beyond circumstance with expectancy of how Gods glory may be revealed to a world in desperate need.
Jude 1:21 ”keep yourselves in the love of God, looking expectantly for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ that pertains to the age to come”
