Recently I came across this amazing song called "Altar" by Psalmist Raine. (YouTube it!) as the song proceeds it speaks of being on the Altar before God as a sacrifice. Immediately I connected with this song! #1 it was playing softly during one of my intimate times with God and it drew me quickly into focus!!
#2 I connected with this song because of its powerful story. Here is a person broken and surrendered to God, as if they were laid out before God on a sacred altar. I love the altar because it is a place of sacrifice and a place of surrender. My agenda and my plans don't have authority on Gods altar.
With my hands raised I began to repeat the words of this song to God as if my own heart were screaming them out in submission "father consume me, you can use me, breathe LIFE into me, here on this altar". I couldn't help but analyze the hidden places of my heart in this moment. Was ALL of me truly on this altar, truly submitted to God??
Humbled in His presence, I look up and give God a fresh YES!! I repent for the "no's" that I have been giving in secret (as if He doesn't know) and I just let go! Made a decision to trust the YES and sacrifice my own will, and take on His.
My friends, I'm not sure how honest your ready to be with God right now, but I challenge you to visit the "altar" of your heart and have an honest dialouge with God. Turn those "no's" to one big YES and lay it all down on the altar. Cry out to Him, trust Him!! Present your body, a living sacrifice, Holy and acceptable to God, which is an act of Worship!💕
Share with me, your ALTAR experience......
