Over the last couple months more often than not I sense the Lord giving me a song of the day. Usually this happens between 3 am and 6 am and today he gave me a repeat of the day before yesterday just before 6 am. Repeats don’t happen often, so I decided to take a closer look at the lyrics today. Here’s a You Make Me Brave lyric video of the song by Amanda Cook & Bethel Music.
Sunday’s song of the day was Be Enthroned by Jeremy Riddle. Enjoy.
If you’re like me you haven’t read Revelation very much because so many people want to talk about the enemy and forget that the book of Revelation is about Jesus. Listen to Jerame Nelson from the Fire & Glory Outpouring long enough and he will get around to mentioning that fact. (Incidentally, Jerame & Miranda’s new site is ElishaRevolution.com.)
After hearing him preach that enough times I finally read Revelation a few weeks ago. Something else I didn’t really know or had forgotten is the 24 elders who are mentioned in Revelation 4:10-11. (Read the verses at Bible Gateway in two translations side-by-side!) I believed that a way to highlight the 24 elders and help us remember them was to reblog Rae’s posts from RealAsTheStreets.org 24 times. So that’s what I did. Hopefully, doing that has gotten your attention!
In addition, the first song below is based on Revelation and it’s about Jesus, not his enemy.
Press On, Brothers & Sisters, Press On.
Fellowship with charismatic believers long enough you will eventually hear of Bethel Music. I’ve never been to Bethel Church in Redding, but I gather that’s where Bethel Music started.
Today I decided to see how many videos (mostly music and worship) Bethel has on Youtube. My estimate is at least 350 videos, so there are plenty to choose from. As I mentioned the other day, some are even instrumental music. I highly recommend this music for cultivating an attitude of worship. I’ve included a video today that I find especially powerful.
God bless you!
In an earlier post I mentioned what a blessing it is to have an Amazon Echo. The other day “Alexa”, which is the persona of the Amazon Echo, recommended that we listen to Bethel Music. I assume that’s because we’ve been listening to mostly christian music (especially worship music) since we bought the device.
When I kept hearing instrumentals I had to go to Youtube to check it out and sure enough, Bethel Music has a whole album called Without Music: Synesthesia that came out in the summer of 2015. I love it and I hope you feel that same!
God bless you!
This year I’ve had some wonderful experiences in my faith life. You only have to read previous posts to find that out or see where that is implied. The last couple of days have not been awesome for me and I think I figured out why.
This is an online blog. What’s printed here goes out to the world. I don’t promise to tell you every little thing about my life, but I will share that sometimes things are off with me. I want to keep sharing about real life faith. It’s not because my candidate didn’t win in the election
[ That was DAYS ago! 😉 ].
Here it is:
I’ve spent a lot of time online and not enough time with Jesus. I believe it’s that simple. (OK, maybe the extra caffeine today didn’t help!)
Please remember the account of Mary and Martha in the Gospel of Luke today and every day. And, remember it especially tomorrow on Thanksgiving.
God bless you!
Luke 10:38-42 New American Standard Bible (NASB)
Martha and Mary
38 Now as they were traveling along, He entered a village; and a woman named Martha welcomed Him into her home. 39 She had a sister called Mary, who was seated at the Lord’s feet, listening to His word. 40 But Martha was distracted with [a]all her preparations; and she came up to Him and said, “Lord, do You not care that my sister has left me to do all the serving alone? Then tell her to help me.” 41 But the Lord answered and said to her, “Martha, Martha, you are worried and bothered about so many things; 42 but only one thing is necessary, for Mary has chosen the good part, which shall not be taken away from her.”
Some songs bless you.
Let me correct that.
MANY songs bless you.
Sometimes you NOTICE.
Thank you, Air1!
I was driving this morning and recently I’ve usually been quite content to listen to Christian music on the radio or sing to God in the car.
[ For those of you counting, I just got some brownie points with that sentence. 😉 ]
It’s simple today.
This song blessed me and continues to bless me.
Would you like to be blessed?
One of my strong suggestions is:
Listen to this song. Then listen again. Repeat.
Then repeat all that. 🙂
I’m following my own suggestion as I finish this post.
God loves you!
