This past week has been one of those "wrecking" weeks, its like something I have never experienced before. Here I am on thursday at rehearsal, finding myself in the midst of it worshipping and praising God. So. . .Sunday rolls around and rehearsal was just not happening. We go in the back pray (now mind you we prayed before we started rehearsal), and when we come out on stage its like the Holy Spirit has washed over the stage and we were completely filled with the Spirit – sitting in His presence.
By about the third song, I have totally been raptured into His presence, and during the instrumentals, God is bringing so many people into my mind and I am just praying for them. I look over at my friend Steve and he throws his arms in the air praising God and I lose it, my eyes start welling up, and I'm like how am I supposed to continue singing. Then my good buddy Andy, he tells the story of rehearsal with surrender and worship, and there I go again – I start welling up. Talk about a movement of the Holy Spirit, and we haven't even gotten to communion yet.
What have I learned? Complete surrender is "completely scary". When we throw wide the door to our heart, and really allow God into those rooms where we don't really want Him to go – that's completely scary.
Are you willing to throw open the door to those parts of your heart that need God's cleaning? Just be prepared, its complete surrender, but completely worth it.
