A Great Must
We might sin with our mouth but when we are silent, we rob Him of His glory.
When you put these two quotes by Francis J Roberts together, they make a pretty strong message about the importance of praising the Lord. Not just in worship music, a singing voice, dance, or writing, but in everything I say and do. Including every opportunity to share with someone that a particular situation in my life has no explanation other than God.
Yet, how often I have forgotten what I have been delivered from? How often I have robbed Him of His glory by my silence? Too often, I'm afraid to say.
Recently my friend wrote a message about serenading the Lord. A serenade means a complimentary performance given to honor or express love for someone. This was the same day God impressed this upon my heart from Psalm 54: Save me, O God, by Your name, and vindicate my by Your strength. . . . Behold, God is my helper . . . I will freely sacrifice to you. I will praise Your name, O Lord, for it is good. For He has delivered me!
Lord, I pray that I would just say so, that I would not write anything off as some cosmic coincidence, nor cower back in the corner, giving in to the fear of man with my silence.
So this is why I must write . . . and sing and dance, but mostly write . . . a great must dominates my life.
