‘for as the sail makes the sprout come up and a garden causes seeds to grow, so the Sovereign Lord will make righteousness and praise spring up before all nations.’ isaiah 61:11
so this really caught my eye today… the fact that the Lord will make praise spring up before all nations. i know that when i’m leading worship or in a crowd of corporate worship, i get aggrivated at those that seem so passive about what’s going on around them. my entire thought process is then thrown off by my thinking about my surroundings.. what’s going on around instead of what i’m there to do.
i feel like this verse really took the pressure off of me that i had created for myself: He’ll do it. i can only do what He’s called me to do: worship, and He’ll do the rest. whether or not i’m the only one in the room giving it everything as if it were my last time to praise, He’ll bring glory to Himself- and doesn’t need my help doing it. that takes a load off .
