Ministering to the Lord

Will make you glow

And it will show

It puts Him first

And you will not be last

You’ve made Him your choice

And You’ll hear His voice

Divine direction will come

Distractions will go

Intimacy will grow

You’ve given Him first place

And You‘ll see His face

He’ll tell you what to do

In the face of the storm

And you will have calm.

 

Ministering to the Lord

Is a word for the wise

And when you heed you’ll rise

Do it consciously

Do it deliberately

Do it willingly

Do it profusely

Do it purposefully

Praise Him for who He is

Praise Him for what He has done

Praise Him for what He can do

Praise Him for what He is doing

Worship Him in the beauty of holiness.

Bow down and adore Him

Dance and praise Him

Lift up holy hands

Shout His praise

with reckless abandon.

The disciples did

Moses did

David did

Samuel did,

You too can

, Duet34:29,- 10:8, 1Sam2:18 Prov4:20

  1. As they ministered to the Lord and fasted, the Holy Spirit said, “Now separate to Me Barnabas and Saul for the work to which I have called them.”3 Then, having fasted and prayed, and laid hands on them, they sent them away. Acts13:218        But Samuel ministered before the LORD, even as a child, wearing a linen ephod. 1Sam2:18

  2. .8 At that time the LORD separated the tribe of Levi to bear the ark of the covenant of the LORD, to stand before the LORD to minister to Him and to bless in His name, to this day. Deut10:8

Greatness Without Godliness ( by Fenny West )

Greatness without Godliness is Foolishness

 

Greatness without godliness

Is a call to disaster,

Gateway to a big crash;

Digging a grave for yourself

A deception- delusion;

Dead man walking- time bomb

A spiritual poverty, like Laodiceans.

 

 

Greatness without godliness

Is nothing but foolishness;

It’s prosperity with perverseness;

It’s pride and wickedness;

It’s nothing but blindness;

Its shamelessness and nakedness;

Its’ nothing but an own-goal;

It’s shooting yourself in the foot.

 

Greatness without godliness

Is like little foxes that spoil the vine.

King Uzziah was here to his demise. ( 2Chro26:5,14-18)

King Saul was here to his dismay ( 1Sam31:1,4, 1Sam15,3,7,15,22-24))

Herod was here to his decay (Acts12:20-24)

Absalom was here to his shame.

He hung on the tree trapped by his long hair- his pride.

Eli was here and he died suddenly.

Nebuchadnezzar was here and was humbled.

Belshazzar became proud bold and brazen;

Defiling holy things.

He was weighed on the scale and found wanting.

He was unceremoniously overthrown.

Harman was here and was hanged

 on the gallows he prepared for Mordecai.

His sons were also hanged for good measure.

 

 

King Ahab was led astray by Jezebel

And they both paid the price with their lives.

Samson was here as he lay on Delilah’s lap

And played the fool with holy things;

he saw red when his vison was gone.

Those on Sodom and Gomorrah were here

And we all know the fate that greeted them.

 

Greatness is good. It comes from God

But He must remain in the driving seat.

We must eschew pride- the nature of Lucifer

Who fell because of pride.

Pride goes before a fall.

God resists the proud

But gives grace to the humble.

11     Yours, O LORD, is the greatness,

      The power and the glory,

      The victory and the majesty;

      For all that is in heaven and in earth is Yours;

      Yours is the kingdom, O LORD,

      And You are exalted as head over all.

12     Both riches and honor come from You,

      And You reign over all.

      In Your hand is power and might;

      In Your hand it is to make great

      And to give strength to all.

13     ” Now therefore, our God,

      We thank You

      And praise Your glorious name.

1Chro29:11-13

 

 

5 Likewise you younger people, submit yourselves to your elders. Yes, all of you be submissive to one another, and be clothed with humility, for

” God resists the proud,

But gives grace to the humble.”

6 Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time,7 casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.

8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.9 Resist him, steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same sufferings are experienced by your brotherhood in the world. 1Pet5:5-8
