In my continuing journey of finding the balance of holiness, finding the balance of being in the world, but not of the world, I have found a new balance to seek after – worshipping God in spirit and in truth (John 4:23-24). (These are the discussions I am having with a small group of friends and like-minded individuals, who desire change in our walk with Christ and change in our church’s walk with Christ.)
There have been times in my life when I worshipped God in spirit and times when I worshipped Him in truth, but I don’t think I have ever been able to put the two together. I long to be in this state because of what God says about those that worship Him that way. God says he seeks after those worshippers. Can you imagine being someone whose worship God seeks? That is an amazing, humbling thought. I want to be someone that God seeks after. Where God longs for my worship because it is done in a right heart and directed completely toward Him in spirit and in truth.
This brings me back to revival. The overused word that many people talk about, but few (myself included) have actually experienced. I think when we begin to worship God in a way that He seeks us and our worship, we will begin to see true, scriptural revival. I ache to be a part of that. I pray that I will be a “highway of holiness” as Isaiah says for God to bring about revival, instead of a stumbling block (which is what I am usually).
So my prayer is: “Daddy, make me holy, make me set apart for Your use, make my worship be all that You want so that You seek after it and bring revival to us, not for our glory, but only for You.”
