It’s not about you. It’s about Him.

At times when God speaks, it’s a still small voice…sometimes even a whisper. And it’s at times like these that He invites us to be still and know that He is God (Psalms 46:10).

Join me as I share with you God Whispers that have that sustained, strengthened and encouraged me on my journey to be the Mommy and Wife God wants me to be.

It’s not about you. It’s about Him.

Are you ever guilty of super-spiritualizing prayer?

Trying to follow a “standard” for worship?

Being “formal” in your relationship with your Lord, your Maker, your Savior?

I know I am and when I have been formal, super-spiritual and/or conformed, I’m reminded of that passage in 2 Samuel 6: 16-22a

 

16 Now as the ark of the Lord came into the City of David, Michal, Saul’s daughter, looked through a window and saw King David leaping and whirling before the Lord; and she despised him in her heart.17 So they brought the ark of the Lord, and set it in its place in the midst of the tabernacle that David had erected for it. Then David offered burnt offerings and peace offerings before the Lord. 18 And when David had finished offering burnt offerings and peace offerings, he blessed the people in the name of the Lord of hosts. 19 Then he distributed among all the people, among the whole multitude of Israel, both the women and the men, to everyone a loaf of bread, a piece of meat, and a cake of raisins. So all the people departed, everyone to his house.

20 Then David returned to bless his household. And Michal the daughter of Saul came out to meet David, and said, “How glorious was the king of Israel today, uncovering himself today in the eyes of the maids of his servants, as one of the base fellows shamelessly uncovers himself!”

21 So David said to Michal, “It was before the Lord, who chose me instead of your father and all his house, to appoint me ruler over the people of the Lord, over Israel. Therefore I will play music before the Lord. 22 And I will be even more undignified than this, and will be humble in my own sight.

 

If the King of Israel, the man after the LORD’s own heart went raw before the LORD, irrespective of who was around him, why can’t we?

What holds us back?… People? Ego? Fear of criticism/ridicule?

 

May we never forget that it’s not about us…

it’s all about Him.

 

I pray the LORD will use this passage and song to minister to your heart today, as it did mine.

  3. Marina, yes, yes. It’s about being Real before Him, isn’t it? Our truest selves are found when we know Him. Knowing the Lord as Friend and Savior is to become all He intended.
