And Start to Sing into the Night! – Jasmine’s Journey of Healing
I am learning the power of combining my time in God’s Word with my time of worship. As I unite my heart with my favorite worship songs I speak out the power of God’s Word and I am lifted to the Holy of Holies where Jesus is.
Today our family’s Scripture is “With all my heart I seek your favor; pour out your grace on me as you promised!” (Psalm 119:58)
This morning as s I began speaking this Scripture out loud my thoughts went to all of the places our family needs God’s favor and His grace. It’s important to recognize the places where we have been defeated and where we feel stuck, but it’s imperative that we don’t stay there!
As I was meditating on the Scripture (reading it, praying it, and asking the Holy Spirit to be the voice behind God’s Word) I began listening to one of my new favorite songs “Not Afraid” by Jesus Culture. The light of the truth in this song brought me to a place where I didn’t see our struggles anymore, I saw powerfully the promise and deliverance of our Almighty God!
“You keep the promises You make
There isn’t one that is delayed
So I will not lose heart, here, I will lift my arms
And start to sing into the night
My praise will call the sun to rise
Declare the battle won, declare that it is done”
It’s in these moments that God reveals His vision for the future and hope He has in store for us. As His Words in us and our worship to Him lift us above the battle we can see the victory and can claim with confidence that our praise will call the sun to rise!
