Daily Read – Micah 1:1-4:13; Revelation 6:1-17; Psalm 134:1-3; Proverbs 30:1-4
Lift up your hands in the sanctuary,
And bless the Lord
The view from heaven is astounding as My people from all nations raise their hands to Me in surrendered adoration. Every color, tongue, and tribe praising and acknowledging Christ as the risen and reigning King is spectacular! If only My people knew the significance of raised hands in worship. In the spirit realm, it is not just a powerful act of worship, it is a weapon of warfare against the enemy.
Colors and light, unknown on earth explode from each raised hand reaching into the Throne room of heaven. Each color carried on rays of liquid light cover My Throne in worship. It blesses Me, your Father and exalts My Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. The sword of the Spirit is wielded by every vessel of worship dispatching the hosts of heaven to defeat demonic entities.
My child, this is an enormous act in My Kingdom. I not only view this from a distance enjoying the corporate adoration, I zoom in to see your individual hearts. Outward expressions of worship reflect inward conditions of the soul. The raising of your hands is revealing, telling, and found throughout My Word.
Every Word I speak is important. Each Word is instruction and when applied, produces eternity in the lives of My people. Not one act of obedience goes unnoticed but is eternally recorded waiting for you as an incorruptible reward in heaven.
Lift your beautiful hands to Me
Precious Lord, forgive me for allowing tradition of man, reputation, self-centeredness, and just plain laziness to keep me from giving the worship You deserve. When you say, "Lift up your hands", this is not a suggestion! You mean what You say. I unashamedly raise my hands to You in surrender and worship. I engage my entire being spirit, soul and body and repent for the excuses I use to justify my lack of enthusiasm in worship. The Lamb slain from the foundation of the world is worthy. Your eyes were fixed on me when You chose to lift up Your arms in crucifixion on the cross. I choose to fix my eyes on You as I raise my arms in adoration to You. You are worthy!
I receive it as an eternal blessing of worship!
