it’s monday

we had good services yesterday.  i felt good about the music.  i wish we could have gotten recordings, but it’s not about the recordings, it’s about how people respond to the Lord.

i got to sit in on a really great lesson Thursday that Sion Alford taught at the worship leader luncheon.

Here are some of the notes i took

The purpose of Praise

Psalms 8:2 says

from the lips of children and infants You have ordained praise because of Your enemies to silence the foe and the avenger.

ordained means to establish for a specific purpose.  The purpose of Praise is warfare.

Praise is a weapon

Praise releases Power

hey there is so much here, i can’t possibly type it all.  it was a great study into how we use our mind, will and emotions to tell our body or flesh to express spiritual truths in the earthly place.

oh and musical instruments are simply extensions of our body.  Satan hates it when we use our “flesh” to praise because it is a weapon against him…ever wonder why you get complaints about the drums and the guitars being “too loud”.

have a good one

  1. Hello,

    Praise and worship is a personal experience for me. Even though we gather to worship together, it is all about the honor that is given unto God. It is not for a show to the world or to sound good or be seen, but it is much more than that. When worshipping God in spirit and in truth, it is like being removed from that fleshly body to come into the presence of God, thereby, giving God all of the hornor and praise.

    I think that the devotional service on Sunday morning is a time we decrease and God increase as we meditate on Him.

    When you can feel the presence of God, and it doesn’t have to be on Sunday morning while in church, it is awesome and you can’t help but give God the praise.

    If people really realized the power one has when calling on the name of the Lord, we all wouldn’t let a second go by without calling on His holy name.

    God is good!!!
