Psalm 7:17 “I will praise the Lord according to ‘HIS’ righteousness!”
For the longest time
SHAME has taught me I CANNOT lift up HOLY hands in worship based on what those hands were DOING prior! And that has kept my hands shackled to my side through the most moving worship experiences.
The FACT that it’s HIS righteousness and not my ACTS that should be the basis of my Worship has just SET ME FREE, and given PROFOUND SIGNIFICANCE to Jesus’ GAME CHANGING statement…”IT IS FINISHED”.
My SHAME is finished.
My REMORSE is finished.
My SELF AWARENESS is finished.
My DRY WORSHIP is finished.
Frankly….my ‘MY’ is finished!
It’s ALL from him. It’s ALL about him.Now THAT’S liberating!
And THAT liberty is why I can LIFT UP HOLY HANDS, WITHOUT WRATH OR DOUBTING in ABANDONED WORSHIP, and literally, …’PRAISE the Lord ACCORDING to ‘HIS righteousness!’
NEVER will I let my SINFUL DISPOSITION affect my RIGHTEOUSNESS POSITION!
,for OF him, and TO Him, and THROUGH him are all THINGS!
my worship included.
