A new dimension

I was amazed when I heard this preacher by the name of Kevin Durant preaching about spirit of faith. He was probably one guy who seeks to live out God's word in his life, fine-tuning the every bit and step which will seek to please the Lord.

As I listened to His words, I felt that there is a need to be changed. A need to grow. A need to re-learn. I felt like a young believer once again. Having that vulnerability to learn and receive, digest whatever that has been taught.

He said that praises unto God should not be just about clapping hands. Clapping hands is just a sign of excitement, enthusiasm, a convenient expression. But when we use our tongue to praise God verbally, words flow out from our mouth, praises were lifted unto the Lord. We come out of our usual and do the extraordinary, which pleases the Lord and irks the devil.

There is power in our tongue. If only we all learn to not just express God with "whoo.. yeah..." but to say, "Praise the Lord, Hallelujah, Jesus is so good!!", won't it be amazing?? We all need to go beyond ourselves, our comfort level and live to worship the Lord with our total being.

All these that he has preached inspired me greatly. I want to learn to praise the Lord more verbally and with dancing and singing, because Jesus is definitely greater than a soccer star!
