Triumphant Victorious Reminders
Inspired by Holy Spirit
Written by: Teresa Criswell
Opened the back door as the morning breath of the day filled me with awe.
This amazement led me like a conductor of an astounding orchestra to want to be in deep, holy trepedation of our MIGHTY God; this desire provoked by nature's declarations of the glory of GOD!
Coming back inside, I could hear my praise music by "Sons and Daughters" playing while even more wonder struck me. This striking wonderment led me to the couch as I grabbed my worn torn Bible and opened it up to find a simple yet profound scripture highlighted. It was that moment the Pharisees acted concerned that people were praising Jesus with highest praise when HE so wittingly replied, " "If they kept quiet, the stones along the road would praise ME!"
"If they kept quiet, the stones along the road would praise ME!"
That alone led me to say, "Whether I praise YOU LORD or not; nature itself will proclaim WHO you are. No way do I ever want nature to replace my voice - I want them to join me - to join us in the highest praise to our King!"
It makes me wonder when the earth trembles, is it because no one praises the KING and so the rocks below and above the surface cry out in praise to the KING of all kings? Do you think that the trembling of the earth cries out for someone to praise HIS HOLY NAME?
In those moments I am about to "vent" or complain about someone or something, I will keep in mind of even the foundation of my home - will it record the praises of our God and King? Not just in praise music, but in my everyday conversations.
God! Our hearts are yours; our mouths are yours; we are a set apart people; set apart to be seen as truly set apart. "Vessels of honor, set apart and useful for the Master prepared for EVERY good work."
II Timothy 2:20-21
