As worship leaders, as worshipers, we do the songs over and over. We practice and perform and, though the words still mean something to us, we no longer submit to them.
“I am free to run…”
Do we run in Him? Do we dance? Do we see the blind healed, the dead rise?
“My foes are many, they rise against me, but I will hold my ground…”
Do we hold our ground in the face of attacks from the enemy? Do we fight fearlessly against the war that he brings? Do we take the fight to him?
I don’t want to sing the songs and not live the life. I don’t want to call people to the feet of Jesus and stand at a distance unmoved. My heart needs set on fire. My life needs to change, to grow.
I want to believe, to know that nothing compares to His grace. I want to be humbled by His majesty. I want to have all I need in His unending love.
