I lift my hands in worship…

I lift my hands in worship.  Some people say I shouldn’t.  I want to tell them not to play worship songs if that it is the case.  If God has changed your life and He has filled you, then there should be no reason not to worship Him in such “extreme” ways.  God has bless me beyond imagine, so much that I can not even comprehend.  I will sing, I will dance, I will lift my voice, I will lift my hands in worship unto God because He is good…He is Mighty…He is Awesome…He is everything that I need.  He is my Strength and my Song!  Only in Him shall I boast.

“Lift up your hands in the sanctuary and praise the LORD.”  –Psalms 134:2

I am in no way perfect. Don’t get me wrong.  I don’t always give God 100% of the glory and honor as I should.  I make mistake just like the next average Joe.  But I know one thing that is for sure.  God loves me (and you) so much that He sent His only Son to die on Calvary’s tree.  No matter what wrong we have done, Jesus’ death and resurrection is able to blot out that wrong.  His Blood shed does not cover our sins, but it make it white as snow–it bleaches them.

“as far as the east is from the west, so far has He removed our transgressions [sins, wrong doings] from us.”  –Psalms 103:12

The following lyrics are from the song “We Lift our hands In the Sanctuary” by Kirk Franklin:

We clap our hands in the sanctuary
We clap our hands to give you the glory
We clap our hands to give you the praise
And we will praise you for the rest of our days
Yes, we will praise for the rest of our days

If God has made a difference in your life, I encourage you to be a fool for God.  Shout God’s goodness from your rooftop.  Let your worship reflect your appreciation for what God has done for you.  Believer, worship God in Spirit and in Truth.  If God has changed you, DO NOT BE SILENT!

Praising God,

-matthew
