Vital signs- Saturday,June 20th,2020



Did you know you can bless the heart of God?


When you focus only on what you can get from God, the posture of your heart reflects that. Your focus becomes set on the things you have instead of what God has already done for you. And that affects every area of your life.


But when I start resting in God’s presence, not focusing only on what I could get from Him, but actually what I could give to Him and thanking Him for what He had already given me, it set me free and opened my eyes to see how I can bless His heart through my worship.


Deuteronomy 10:8 (ESV) shows us, “At that time the Lord set apart the tribe of Levi to carry the ark of the covenant of the Lord to stand before the Lord to minister to him and to bless in his name, to this day.”


The truth is, worship and praise have always been designed for us to give more than we get. And yet, God loves to bless us! It’s a beautiful exchange, a giving of ourselves to Him and receiving what He has for us in return.


I love how King David exemplifies this in scripture…


You can pass through his open gates with the password of praise. Come right into his presence with thanksgiving. Come bring your thank offering to him and affectionately bless his beautiful name! Psalm 100:4, TPT


Let all that I am praise the Lord; may I never forget the good things he does for me. Psalm 103:2, NLT


David blessed God in full view of the entire congregation: Blessed are you, God of Israel, our father from of old and forever. To you, O God, belong the greatness and the might, the glory, the victory, the majesty, the splendor… 1 Chronicles 29:10-11, MSG


When the Holy Spirit speaks to us about our heart’s posture we must repent. Revelation 2:4 puts it, I went back to my “first love,” of trusting God, wanting Him and nothing else.


I want to encourage you to take some time to check the posture of your heart and encounter the loving-kindness of God as you surrender to Him.


May you bless His heart through your worship and your praise.
