Healed By Worship

“Will you not revive us again, that your people may rejoice in you?” -Psalm 85:6

I’m in the midst of the greatest spiritual revival of my life. It started in January 2018 and is still going strong! As we head into 2019 I want to share with you one of the keys that ignited the fire!

So explosive has the Holy Spirit’s work in my life been that I would call it miraculous! God came suddenly and with great transforming power and literally caught me by surprise.

When I think about what God has done in my life this year I continually come back to two things that have have been critical to the Revival that has taken place in my life-

  1. Complete unreserved surrender to Jesus.
  2. Experiencing the presence of God in worship.

I went through a very painful life event that broke my heart. Out of my brokenness I cried out to God and SURRENDERED my entire life to Him. I went through a period of many months where I poured out my heart to God in prayer, repentance, surrender and worship.

Giving my life completely to Jesus without reservation and worshipping Him with my whole heart ushered in miraculous healing!

Not only was I healed, but God set me free to worship with such total FREEDOM that it is unlike anything I have ever experienced before in my life!

“You make known to me the path of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence, with eternal pleasures at your right hand.” – Psalm 16:11

The presence of God changed me!

I’m talking about the tangible presence of the Living God manifesting Himself to me in such a way that it’s literally impossible to experience and not be changed!

“Though you have not seen Him, you love Him; and even though you do not see Him now, you believe in Him and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy!” -1 Peter 1:8

I will talk about other specific and important points of revival in future posts, but for now I wanted to simply highlight worship as one of the central keys to my healing breakthrough.

By worship I mean complete abandonment to Him- Adoring Him, loving Him and entering into a place of intimacy with Him.

His presence is healing.

God can do more in a moment with you in His presence than you can do in a LIFETIME on your own.

Some of the things that come out of truly being in His presence are:

  1. Unspeakable joy
  2. God’s peace
  3. A desire for, and a life lived, in holiness.

These things are, by the way, what the Word of God says the Kingdom of God is all about!

“For the kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and drinking, but of righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit! -Romans 14:17

God manifesting Himself during worship WILL CHANGE YOU!

“And we all, with unveiled face, beholding the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from one degree of glory to another. For this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit.” -2 Corinthians 3:18
