In the East & the West
In eastern lands, give glory to the LORD. In the lands beyond the sea, praise the name of the LORD, the God of Israel.
Series: Worship in Chaos
We have to learn to live each day of our lives in earnest expectation of God’s goodness being made to manifest in our lives. How do we do that when we’re in the middle of chaos and crisis? How do we really give thanks when we don’t find anything apt or great to give thanks to God for?
- As discussed yesterday, when we begin to worship God in our chaos, it has the power to change our circumstances, to affect us and the way that we see our circumstances. When God descends into our lives, the chaos will change into beauty, life, light and glory. That is what everything that God touches becomes. If God touches your life, your life becomes glorious and your circumstances also turn to glory.
- In the above verse, Isaiah is speaking geographically, pointing out to lands and the people who live in different geographical aspects and he’s pronouncing worship upon their life.
- No matter where you are in your journey with God, whether you are in the West or East, wherever you are physically and spiritually, the solution to your problems and challenges is still the same – it is to worship God. Not just to worship God, also imitate Isaiah the prophet and begin to declare worship into your household, your church, your workplace.
- Even when Isaiah saw sin, rebellion and idol worship, he went about declaring that there be shouts of joy and worship.
- In fact, Jesus said, ‘ Let your light shine before men, such that they will see your good works and glorify, worship and give thanks to your Father in Heaven. ‘
- The way we live our lives can yield worship to our Master. It can cause people to fall on their knees and worship God. The way we prophecy, pray and worship, everything put together can cause people around us to fall in love and adoration with God.
Prophecy worship into every spear of society. In the East or the West, beyond the sea or this side of the sea, let everybody bring their worship to God!
