"Ministering to the Lord" - Monday, May 9th

To You, O Lord, I lift up my soul. O my God, in You I trust …. Make me know Your ways, O Lord; teach me Your paths. Psalm 25:1-2A, 4

Today's thoughts from today's verses:

You know that something very special has transpired if you overhear someone say to their friend, “Thank you so much, you have really ministered to me, you have touched my soul. Today’s verses speak of lifting up one’s soul to God. It is the lifting up of one’s soul to God that really ministers to him and touches him deeply. You see God made us to be in intimate communion with him – soul to soul, so to speak. To initiate special times of intimacy with God, we must lift up our soul to God. Lifting up the soul can be described as coming before God in worshipful surrender in order to focus on all that God is with all that we are.

We minister to God when we take our rightful place before him with a soul filled with exaltation, adoration, and praise to him and empty of ourselves and what we want from him. This is what touches, blesses, and delights God more than anything. Being empty of ourselves and wrapped up in God is what communion and intimacy with God is all about. Ministering to God in this way allows God to be God to us and frees him to minister to all that we are with all that he is and we are touched, blessed, and delighted in return. It is out of such communion and intimacy with God that we are able to trust him with every bit of our lives. Through a close and trusting relationship with God, we come to know his ways and learn his paths and the life we live becomes his doing.

Today's prayer response from today's thoughts:

Lord, to You I lift up my soul. O my God, in You I trust. Make me know Your ways, O Lord; teach me Your paths. Amen!

this is excellent blog. An excellent read. I will definitely be back.
