Consecrate Yourself to Me
Consecrate Yourself To Me
Scripture: “Consecrate yourselves therefore, and be holy, for I am the LORD your God.”
Leviticus 20:7 NKJV
Observation: I know you might loose interest almost immediately after seeing weird words like "consecrate". But let's look into it and see what it actually means; Consecration- "the devoting or setting apart of anything to the worship or service of God."(biblestudytools.com) Wow, when it's put like that it clears up what God is saying to Israel in at this time and to His people for all lifetimes. That we are too set ourselves apart and devote our lives to Him.
Application: Are you a shy person? The type who is looking around and seeing some raising their hands, praying or even shouting at the top of their lungs the lyrics that you don't really know. If that is, you might have thought to yourself' "I'm not cut out for worship", but don't listen to that lie from the enemy! Worship is so much more then music, though God has blessed some to express in that way; worship is something that's dwells within the heart of those who loves the Lord and is expressed in so many unique ways! And this "service" isn't just the pastors or what is recognized by other believers. But it's doing/handling responsibilities with a spirit of excellence because you know God loves you and you desire to make the Spiritual Father proud in all that you do.
Prayer: Lord, we desire to set our lives apart from the world and worship You everyday. May we dedicate all that we do to You in the name of Your Son. In Jesus name, AMEN.
