Our worship leader, Debra, led us in a song last Sunday called “Famous For”. The Holy Spirit impressed this song on her heart, and I personally cannot get it out of mine. The lyrics that pulsate inside of my soul are: “God of exceedingly, God of abundantly, more than we ask or think, Lord, You will never fail. Your name is powerful, Your word’s unstoppable. All things are possible in You.”
I felt it last Sunday as we sang, and even now as the words reverberate inside of me, something akin to a thunder…like a great rumbling in the heavenlies. There is an electricity in these declarations; they are electrifying the spiritual realm with truth—like a mighty roar!
Though the lyrics of the song declare what is possible in the Lord, they also declare what the Lord has ALREADY done! In our walk with the Lord, in our prayer life, in our worship, it must be like this, too! We must acknowledge what is possible and at the same time maintain the memory of what God has already miraculously accomplished. Simultaneously, our faith must lead us into hope and ground us with thankfulness and unwavering belief.
Psalm 103:1,2 says: “Praise the Lord, my soul; all my inmost being, praise his holy name. Praise the Lord, my soul, and forget not all his benefits—” Psalm 103 emboldens us and urges us to remember God’s goodness and favor, His acts of kindness and generosity and at the same time remember what He can and will do: “who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion, who satisfies your desires with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.”
I believe we will see a shaking in the spiritual realm like we’ve never seen before IF we pray and worship with this kind of faith. Our prayers will be immovable and effective not because of us but because of HIM, the One true God—the God of ABUNDANCE; the God who is UNSTOPPABLE…the God who is ALL-POWERFUL…the God who will NEVER fail.
Today, let’s allow His goodness to fuel our worship of Him, His kindness to draw us closer to Him, His faithful generosity and favor to fill us with gratitude. Let’s pray and worship with boldness declaring who He is, what He has done, and what He can and will do.
