Let us lift our hearts and hands To God in heaven. (Lamentations 3:41 NKJV)
There will come a day when we will all stand before the throne of our Lord God and we will be judged. And for those of us who are being saved we will fall down before Him and give thanks in adoration for His love and grace that He has poured unto us. We will honor and praise Him forever and ever in Heaven. For the Lord will judge His people, And He will have compassion on His servants. (Psalms 135:14 NKJV)
When we are asked a question in school and we know the answer, we lift our hands up high in the air so that we may be picked by the teacher. But when we worship at church we lift our hands up high in the air to Heaven, because we know God is the answer! It may seem awkward at first but when we choose to surrender ourselves to our lord God publicly by lifting our hands up high we demonstrate our love for Him. We surrender our heart and soul. we release it all to Him! We need Him! For He is worthy of our praise!
“You are worthy, O Lord,
To receive glory and honor and power;
For You created all things,
And by Your will they exist and were created.” (Revelation 4:11 NKJV)
We are alive on this earth because of Him, shouldn’t we then Love and Honor Him? Yes we shall! Let’s lift our hands up high to Our lord God in Heaven!
We come before you today to thank you for all that you do and have done for us. We thank you for the opportunity to be your children even though we may not deserve it. Your Love never fails, it never gives up, it never runs out on us, we owe it all to you! Lord God, May we overcome all the distractions and keep our focus on you. May we all have the courage to admit we need you, and lift our hands high to you during worship, disregarding what others may think. We are here because of you; help us to act that way! Not our will but your will, in Jesus’ name we pray amen!
