The Fragrance of Excellence Pt 3

People of Excellence

 

Psalm 36:7 How excellent is thy lovingkindness, O God!

 

TPT “O God, how extravagant is your cherishing love!”

 

THE LIFE OF GOD THAT LIVES WITHIN US DEMANDS THAT WE BECOME BETTER TOMORROW THAN WE WERE TODAY

 

EXCELLENCE IS NO LESS THAN THE FULL EXPRESSION OF GOD THROUGH MAN …

 

1 Cor 12:31 And I show you a still more excellent way.

 

GOD’S MARK OF EXCELLENCE FINDS IT’S EXPRESSION IN LOVE

 

JESUS WAS EXCELLENT IN ALL HE DID.  Mark 7:37

 

2 Pet 1:3 seeing that His divine power has granted to us everything pertaining to life and godliness, through the true knowledge of Him who called us by His own glory and excellence. 4 For by these He has granted to us His precious and magnificent promises, so that by them you may become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world by lust. 5 Now for this very reason also, applying all diligence, in your faith supply moral excellence,

 

EXCELLENCE IS VIRTUE SO VIRTUE IS AN ESSENTIAL QUALITY IN THE EXERCISE OF FAITH.

 

EXCELLENCE IS THE CONTINUAL PURSUIT OF IMPROVEMENT.

 

IT IS DISTINCTION.

 

EXCELLENCE IS ABOUT YOU DEALING WITH YOU.

 

NLT Rom 12:2 Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.

 

WHEN IT COMES TO EXCELLENCE WE ARE NOT CONFORMING TO THIS WORLD BUT WE ARE CONFORMING TO THE WAY GOD WANTS US TO DO THINGS.

 

EXCELLENCE IN MY LIFE IS NOT SO I CAN IMPRESS YOU.

EXCELLENCE IN MY LIFE IS SO THAT I CAN REPRESENT GOD.

 

Prov 22:29 Do you see a man skilled in his work? He will stand before kings; He will not stand before obscure men.

 

THE DESIRE TO EXCELL IS ABOUT NEVER GETTING TO A PLACE WHERE I NO LONGER WANT TO GO FURTHER.

 

EXCELLENCE IS A NOUN – NOT A VERB.

BECAUSE IT IS A NOUN IT IS A PERSON, A PLACE, A THING TO BE DESIRED.

 

EXCELLENCE CANNOT BE DEFINED BECAUSE EVERYTIME THAT YOU DEFINE IT, IT MOVES AND BECOMES GREATER.

 

A PERSON OF EXCELLENCE WILL ALWAYS EXCEED YOUR GREATEST EXPECTATIONS.

 

I HAVE SEVERAL DEFINITIONS OF EXCELLENCE;

IT MEANS TO SURPASS, TO BE BETTER, THEN IT GOES TO BEST.

IT GOES TO EXCEED, TO OUTDO, TO OUTSHINE, TO OUTSTRIP, TO TRANSEND, IT IS A QUALITY, IT IS A VIRTUE.

 

EXCELLENCE IS MERITOURIOUSLY NEAR THE STANDARD.  EXCELLENCE IS THE STANDARD.  IT IS THE MODEL AND IMENENTLY GOOD AND BEST OF IT’S KIND.

 

SYNONYMS OF EXCELLENCE;

IT IS BANG-UP, CHAMPION, CLASSICAL, DANDY, FAMOUS, FIRST RATE, FIRST STRING, FIRST CLASS, 5 STAR, FRONT RANK, GRADE A, NUMBER 1, PRIME, ROYAL, STUNNING, SUPERIOR, TOP NOTCH, WHIZ BANG, HIGH CLASS, HIGH GRADE, EXCEPTIONAL, PREMIUM, INCOMPARABLE, MAGNIFICENT, SENSATIONAL SUPERB, TIP TOP, UNSURPASSED, IT HAS DISTINCTION, IT IS SUPERIORITY AND GOODNESS, IT HAS NICENESS WITH SUPERBNESS.

 

EXCELLENCE IS NOT JUST A WORD – IT BEGINS WITH BEING A VIRTUE

AND THEN, THAT HAS ACTIONS THAT GO ALONG WITH IT.

 

WHEN IT COME TO THE OPPOSITE OF EXCELLENCE, THE LARGEST WORD THAT IS IN THE OPPOSITE FORM IS “MEDIOCRITY”

 

IT IS THE STATUS QUO, IT IS THE JUST GOOD ENOUGH ATTITUDE.

 

IT’S MEDIOCRITY, ITS INADEQUATE, INFERIOR, LOW QUALITY, SUB STANDARD, SECOND CLASS, SECOND RATE, POOR, UNSATISFACTORY, COMON PLACE, ORDINARY, FARE, UNEXCEPTIONAL, BAD.

 

Rev 3:16 “I would that you were cold or hot and because you are lukewarm and you are of no affect he said, I’m going to vomit you out!

 

ORDINARY HAS NO PLACE IN YOUR LIFE!

 

EXCELLENCE IS A FRAGRANCE.  IT IS AN AROMA!

 

IT’S THE FRAGRANCE THAT’S LEFT AFTER SOMEONE WHO IS EXCELLENT LEAVES A STIUATION.

 

IT’S THEIR DEPOSIT TO US ONCE THEY ARE NO LONGER THERE.

 

TALK BACK!!! -Donna Christian

One of the most important things that every believer must learn in their life of faith is how to answer and respond to opposition.

 

John 16:33 AMP  I have told yu these things, so that in Me you may have [perfect] peace and confidence. In the world you have tribulation and trials and distress and frustration; but be of good cheer [take courage, be confident, certain, undaunted]!  For I have overcome the world.  [I have deprived it of power to harm you and have conquered it for you.]

 

2 Cor 2:14  AMP But thanks be to God, who in Christ always leads us in triumph [as trophies of Christ’s victory] and through us spreads the fragrance of the knowledge of God everywhere,

 

Romans 10: NLT  In fact, it says, “The message is very close at hand; it is on your lips and in your heart.”

 

Matthew 16:19 AMP  I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; and whatever you bind (declare to be improper and unlawful) on earth must be what is already bound in heaven; and whatever you loose (declare lawful) on earth must be what is already loosed in heaven.

 

Mark 11:23 NKJVFor assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, “Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says.

 

Hebrews 12:1-2 AMP …let us strip off and throw aside every encumbrance (every unnecessary weight) and that sin which so readily (deftly and cleverly) clings to and entangles us, and let us run with patient endurance and steady and active persistence the appointed course of the race that is set before us, Looking away [from all that distract] to Jesus, Who is the leader and the Source of our faith [giving the first incentive for our belief] and is also it’s finisher [bringing it to maturity and perfection].

 

Luke 4:1 KJV And Jesus being full of the Holy Ghost returned from Jordan, and was led by the Spirit into the wilderness,

Luke 4:2 Being forty days tempted of the devil. And in those days he did eat nothing: and when they were ended, he afterward hungered.

Luke 4:3 And the devil said unto him, If thou be the Son of God, command this stone that it be made bread.

Luke 4:4 And Jesus answered him, saying, It is written, That man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God.

Luke 4:5 And the devil, taking him up into an high mountain, shewed unto him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time.

Luke 4:6 And the devil said unto him, All this power will I give thee, and the glory of them: for that is delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will I give it.

Luke 4:7 If thou therefore wilt worship me, all shall be thine.

Luke 4:8 And Jesus answered and said unto him, Get thee behind me, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.

Luke 4:9 And he brought him to Jerusalem, and set him on a pinnacle of the temple, and said unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down from hence:

Luke 4:10 For it is written, He shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee:

Luke 4:11 And intheirhands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone.

Luke 4:12 And Jesus answering said unto him, It is said, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.

Luke 4:13 And when the devil had ended all the temptation, he departed from him for a season.

Luke 4:14  And Jesus returned in the power of the Spirit into Galilee: and there went out a fame of him through all the region round about.

 

Mark 11:12 NASB And on the next day, when they had departed from Bethany, He became hungry.

Mark 11:13 And seeing at a distance a fig tree in leaf, He went to seeif perhaps He would find anything on it; and when He came to it, He found nothing but leaves, for it was not the season for figs.

Mark 11:14 And He answered and said to it, “May no one ever eat fruit from you again!” And His disciples were listening.

 

2 Cor. 4:16 MESSAGE So we’re not giving up. How could we! Even though on the outside it often looks like things are falling apart on us, on the inside, where God is making new life, not a day goes by without his unfolding grace.

2 Cor. 4:17 These hard times are small potatoes compared to the coming good times, the lavish celebration prepared for us.

2 Cor. 4:18 There’s far more here than meets the eye. The things we see now are here today, gone tomorrow. But the things we can’t see now will last forever.

 

Luke 8:24…Luke 8:22 MESSAGE One day he and his disciples got in a boat. “Let’s cross the lake,” he said. And off they went.

Luke 8:23 It was smooth sailing, and he fell asleep. A terrific storm came up suddenly on the lake. Water poured in, and they were about to capsize.

Luke 8:24 They woke Jesus: “Master, Master, we’re going to drown!”  Getting to his feet, he told the wind, “Silence!” and the waves, “Quiet down!” They did it. The lake became smooth as glass.

Luke 8:25 Then he said to his disciples, “Why can’t you trust me?”  They were in absolute awe, staggered and stammering, “Who is this, anyway? He calls out to the winds and sea, and they do what he tells them!”

THE CORE OF LIFE Pt 9

“LOVE BUILDS UP”  

 

1 John 4:7 Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God. 8 The one who does not love does not know God, for God is love.

 

IF WE ARE NOT OPERATING IN LOVE THEN WE DON’T KNOW GOD.

 

NKJ 1 Cor 8:1 Now concerning things offered to idols: We know that we all have knowledge. Knowledge puffs up, but love edifies (BUILDS UP).

 

2 And if anyone thinks that he knows anything, he knows nothing yet as he ought to know.

 

“The goal of our instruction is love, from a pure heart, and a good conscience and a sincere faith” 1 Tim 1:5

 

Eph 4:29 Let no unwholesome word proceed from your mouth, but only such a word as is good for edification according to the need of the moment, so that it will give grace to those who hear.

 

IN THE FLOW OF LOVE IS POWER, HEALING, REVELATION.

 

TPT 1 Cor 8:1 How easily we get puffed up over our opinions! But love builds up the structure of our new life. 2 If anyone thinks of himself as a know-it-all, he still has a lot to learn. 3 But if a person passionately loves God, he will possess the knowledge of God.

 

NAS 3 but if anyone loves God, he is known by Him.

 

THE THING THAT DISTINGUISHES YOU BEFORE GOD IS NOT HOW MUCH YOU KNOW ABOUT HIM.

 

YOU CAN’T IMPRESS GOD WITH WHAT YOU KNOW BUT YOU CAN IMPRESS HIM BY LOVING HIM.

 

Matt 7:22 Many will say to Me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name perform many miracles?’ 23 And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness.’

 

Rom 13:10 Love does no wrong to a neighbor; Therefore love is the fulfillment of the law.

 

TO PRACTICE THIS, WE ARE GOING TO HAVE TO BE AWARE OF OTHER PEOPLE.

The Fragrance of Excellence

“The divine nature and character of God”

 

Eph 5:1 Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children; 2 and walk in love, just as Christ also loved you and gave Himself up for us, an offering and a sacrifice to God as a fragrant aroma.

 

WE MUST PURSUE HIS CHARACTER

 

2 Pet 1:2 Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord; 3 seeing that His divine power has granted to us everything pertaining to life and godliness, through the true knowledge of Him who called us by His own glory and excellence. 4 For by these He has granted to us His precious and magnificent promises, so that by them you may become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world by lust. 5 Now for this very reason also, applying all diligence, in your faith supply moral excellence,

 

EXCELLENCE IS ALSO THE WORD VIRTUE

 

RUTH AND ESTHER BOTH FOLLOWED INSTRUCTIONS

 

BOAZ CALLED RUTH A VIRTOUS WOMAN RUTH 3:11

 

WHO DID ESTHER LISTEN TO?

 

MOST PEOPLE WANT FAVOR AFTER THEY HAVE NEVER BEEN PLEASING.

 

FAVOR INCREASES THE MOMENT YOU IMPROVE YOUR APPEARANCE.

 

FAVOR AND EXCELLENCE ARE PROMOTION TWINS..

 

EXCELLENCE IS THE CONTINUAL PURSUIT OF IMPROVEMENT.

 

IT IS DISTINCTION.

 

MARK 7:37 “HE HAS DONE ALL THINGS WELL”. – WITH EXCELLENCE

 

Rom 12:2 “DON’T BE CONFORMED TO THE WORLD”

 

EXCELLENCE IS ABOUT YOU DEALING WITH YOU.

 

WHAT IS IT THAT YOU WANT IN LIFE?

WHAT DO YOU WANT TO ACHIEVE?

WHERE DO YOU WANT TO GO?

WHAT DO YOU WANT TO ACCOMPLISH?

 

ALL OF THESE THINGS BECOME QUESTIONS THAT EVERY ONE OF US ARE ANSWERING EVERY DAY, WHETHER YOU REALIZE IT OR NOT.

YOU ANSWER THEM BY WHAT YOU DO!

 

THESE QUESTIONS NOT ONLY TAKE CARE OF WHERE I AM TODAY BUT THEY ALSO SCHEDULE MY FUTURE.

 

WHEN IT COMES TO EXCELLENCE WE ARE NOT CONFORMING TO THIS WORLD BUT WE ARE CONFORMING TO THE WAY GOD WANTS US TO DO THINGS.

 

EXCELLENCE CAN BE DIFFICULT TO COMMUNICATE.

 

EXCELLENCE IN MY LIFE IS NOT SO I CAN IMPRESS YOU.

EXCELLENCE IN MY LIFE IS SO THAT I CAN REPRESENT GOD.

 

Prov 22:29 Do you see a man skilled in his work? He will stand before kings; He will not stand before obscure men.

 

EXCELLENCE IS A NOUN – NOT A VERB.

BECAUSE IT IS A NOUN IT IS A PERSON, A PLACE, A THING TO BE DESIRED.

 

EXCELLENCE CANNOT BE DEFINED BECAUSE EVERYTIME THAT YOU DEFINE IT, IT MOVES AND BECOMES GREATER.

 

A PERSON OF EXCELLENCE WILL ALWAYS EXCEED YOUR GREATEST EXPECTATIONS.

YOU NEVER NEED TO SPEAK TO A PERSON OF EXCELLENCE ABOUT ANYTHING BECAUSE THEY WILL EXCEED WHAT YOU EXPECTED.

 

YOU CANNOT EXPECT AS MUCH AS A PERSON OF EXCELLENCE WILL PERFORM BECAUSE THEIR PERFORMANCE IS THEIR GOAL AND YOUR PLEASURE IS THE RESULT.

 

DEFINITIONS OF EXCELLENCE;

IT MEANS TO SURPASS, TO BE BETTER, THEN IT GOES TO BEST.

IT GOES TO EXCEED, TO OUTDO, TO OUTSHINE, TO OUTSTRIP, TO TRANSEND, IT IS A QUALITY, IT IS A VIRTUE.

 

EXCELLENCE IS A VIRTUE WHICH MEANS ITS FROM THE INSIDE

 

IT CAN BE SEEN ON THE OUTSIDE, BUT IT HAS ITS BIRTH ON THE INSIDE.

 

Rom 12:2

 

EXCELLENCE IS MERITOURIOUSLY NEAR THE STANDARD.  EXCELLENCE IS THE STANDARD.  IT IS THE MODEL AND IMENENTLY GOOD AND BEST OF IT’S KIND.

 

LISTEN TO SOME SYNONYMS OF EXCELLENCE;

IT IS BANG-UP, CHAMPION, CLASSICAL, DANDY, FAMOUS, FIRST RATE, FIRST STRING, FIRST CLASS, 5 STAR, FRONT RANK, GRADE A, NUMBER 1, PRIME, ROYAL, STUNNING, SUPERIOR, TOP NOTCH, WHIZ BANG, HIGH CLASS, HIGH GRADE, EXCEPTIONAL, PREMIUM, INCOMPARABLE, MAGNIFICENT, SENSATIONAL SUPERB, TIP TOP, UNSURPASSED, IT HAS DISTINCTION, IT IS SUPERIORITY AND GOODNESS, IT HAS NICENESS WITH SUPERBNESS.

 

WHAT IS THE OPPOSITE OF IT?

 

EXCELLENCE IS NOT JUST A WORD – IT BEGINS WITH BEING A VIRTUE

AND THEN, THAT HAS ACTIONS THAT GO ALONG WITH IT.

 

WHEN IT COME TO THE OPPOSITE OF EXCELLENCE, THE LARGEST WORD THAT IS IN THE OPPOSITE FORM IS “MEDIOCRITY”

 

IT IS THE STATUS QUO, IT IS THE JUST GOOD ENOUGH ATTITUDE.

 

SO IT’S MEDIOCRITY, ITS INADEQUATE, INFERIOR, LOW QUALITY, SUB STANDARD, SECOND CLASS, SECOND RATE, POOR, UNSATISFACTORY, COMON PLACE, ORDINARY, FARE, UNEXCEPTIONAL, BAD.

 

Rev 3:16 “I would that you were cold or hot and because you are lukewarm and you are of no affect he said, I’m going to vomit you out!

 

ORDINARY HAS NO PLACE IN YOUR LIFE!

 

EXCELLENCE IS A FRAGRANCE.  IT IS AN AROMA!

 

IT’S THE FRAGRANCE THAT’S LEFT AFTER SOMEONE WHO IS EXCELLENT LEAVES A STIUATION.

IT’S THEIR DEPOSIT TO US ONCE THEY ARE NO LONGER THERE.

 

WE NUTURE OUR NATURE.  WE GET HOT AND STAY HOT.  WE REACH AND PURSUE HIS PLEASURE!  WHAT PLEASES HIM! WHAT REPRESENTS HIM!

 

The Favor of His Face

Num 6:23 Speak unto Aaron and unto his sons, saying, On this wise ye shall bless the children of Israel, saying unto them, 24 The LORD bless thee, and keep thee: 25 The LORD make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee: 26 The LORD lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace.

Mess Num 6:24 GOD bless you and keep you, 25 GOD smile on you and gift you, 26 GOD look you full in the face and make you prosper.
27 In so doing, they will place my name on the People of Israel— I will confirm it by blessing them.”

PEOPLE TRY TO LIVE A CHRISTIAN LIFE BY PRINCIPLES AND NOT HAVING FELLOWSHIP. ENCOUNTERS.

PEOPLE ARE TRYING TO GET THE SAME RESULTS BY FORMULA, WHEN FAITH IS A PRODUCT OF KNOWING HIM.

PEOPLE END UP WANTING THE BENEFITS OF THE KINGDOM, WITHOUT KNOWING OR DESIRING THE KING.

Psa 42:1As the deer pants for the water brooks, So my soul pants for You, O God. 2 My soul thirsts for God, for the living God;

5 Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted in me? hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise him for the help of his countenance.

8 Yet the LORD will command his lovingkindness in the daytime, and in the night his song shall be with me, and my prayer unto the God of my life.

Psa 42:11 Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted within me? hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise him, who is the health of my countenance, and my God.

Psa 43:4 Then will I go unto the altar of God, unto God my exceeding joy: yea, upon the harp will I praise thee, O God my God. 5 Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted within me? hope in God: for I shall yet praise him, who is the health of my countenance, and my God.

Acts 2:25 For David speaketh concerning him, I foresaw the Lord always before my face, for he is on my right hand, that I should not be moved: 26 Therefore did my heart rejoice, and my tongue was glad; moreover also my flesh shall rest in hope: 27 Because thou wilt not leave my soul in hell, neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption. 28 Thou hast made known to me the ways of life; thou shalt make me full of joy with thy countenance.

Psa. 16:8 I have set the LORD always before me: because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved. 9 Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoiceth: my flesh also shall rest in hope. 10 For thou wilt not leave my soul in hell; neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption. 11 Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.

WHAT YOU SEE IN HIM, PEOPLE ARE GONNA SEE ON YOU.

Psa. 27:8 When thou saidst, Seek ye my face; my heart said unto thee, Thy face, LORD, will I seek.

Psa. 105:4 Seek the LORD, and his strength: seek his face evermore.

1Chr. 16:11 Seek the LORD and his strength, seek his face continually.

2 Chr 7:14 and My people who are called by My name humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin and will heal their land.

Ezek. 39:29 Neither will I hide my face any more from them: for I have poured out my spirit upon the house of Israel, saith the Lord GOD.

JOEL’S PROPHECY – WHAT PETER REFERED TO IN Acts 2 – “THE OUTPOURING” (MANIFESTATIONS OF OUTPOURING)

Prov 16:15 In the light of the king’s countenance is life; and his favour is as a cloud of the latter rain.

GOD’S PRESENCE ON YOUR LIFE IS TO GIVE YOU FAVOR

WHEN WE RECOGNIZE THE PLACE OF FAVOR IT’S TIME TO ASK…

Hos 6:3 Then shall we know, if we follow on to know the LORD: his going forth is prepared as the morning; and he shall come unto us as the rain, as the latter and former rain unto the earth.

Amp 2 Cor 3:17 Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty (emancipation from bondage, freedom). 18 And all of us, as with unveiled face, [because we] continued to behold [in the Word of God] as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are constantly being transfigured into His very own image in ever increasing splendor and from one degree of glory to another; [for this comes] from the Lord [Who is] the Spirit.

Created for His Presence

Rom 14:17 for the kingdom of God is not eating and drinking, but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.

 

Ps 16:5 The Lord is the portion of my inheritance and my cup

 

8 I have set the Lord continually before me; Because He is at my right hand, I will not be shaken. 9 Therefore my heart is glad and my glory rejoices; My flesh also will dwell securely.

 

11 You will make known to me the path of life; In Your presence is fullness of joy; In Your right hand there are pleasures forever.

 

ACCESSING HIS PRESENCE BECOMES A PRIVILEDGE WE HAVE.

 

Rev 4:11 Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.

 

WE CANNOT EXIST APART FROM HIS PRESENCE. 

 

Heb 4:16 Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.

 

WORSHIP BECOMES THE VEHICLE BY WHICH WE APPROACH HIM.

 

Ps 100:1 Shout joyfully to the Lord, all the earth. 2 Serve the Lord with gladness; Come before Him with joyful singing. 3 Know that the Lord Himself is God; It is He who has made us, and not we ourselves;

We are His people and the sheep of His pasture. 4 Enter His gates with thanksgiving And His courts with praise. Give thanks to Him, bless His name. 5 For the Lord is good; His lovingkindness is everlasting And His faithfulness to all generations.

 

THE LAST THING BEFORE ENTRANCE INTO THE HOLY OF HOLIES WAS THE ALTAR OF INCENSE.

 

Heb 13:15 By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name.

 

Isaiah 6:1 In the year of King Uzziah’s death I saw the Lord sitting on a throne, lofty and exalted, with the train of His robe filling the temple. 2 Seraphim stood above Him, each having six wings: with two he covered his face (Reverance), and with two he covered his feet (Worship), and with two he flew (Service). 3 And one called out to another and said, “Holy, Holy, Holy, is the Lord of hosts, The whole earth is full of His glory.”

 

WITHOUT WORSHIP, SERVICE IS INEFFECTIVE… LIFE IS INEFFECTIVE

 

GOD’S PROVISION IS NEVER A SUBSTITUE FOR HIS PRESENCE.

 

AMP Ps 23:6 Surely or only goodness, mercy, and unfailing love shall follow me all the days of my life, and through the length of my days the house of the Lord [and His presence] shall be my dwelling place.
