Faith Beyond What it Looks Like
This morning as I was driving to work I began with my morning ritual listening to praise and worship. I created a playlist filled with songs that uplift and get me excited to be as productive as possible at work. Some days it's just background music, but today was different. I digested every word and felt every musical note, almost to the point of tears.
I started off with "The Best in Me" by Marvin Sapp. That song is just a pure vibe and the lyrics are powerful. As the song was coming to an end and my voice was feeling a little raspy from screaming "He is mine and I'm His, it doesn't matter what I did...," I heard, "listen to 'Fall' by The Belonging Co," in my spirit.
Now, I've heard this song maybe 100 times now at church and in my car, but it never seemed to come alive to me until today. I turned it up and began to focus in on the lyrics and the melody:
"My eyes above what it looks like My eyes above what it looks like I will only see All You promised me My eyes above what it looks like My eyes above what it looks like I want what You want, I want Kingdom come
Let the weight of Heaven Let the weight of Heaven Fall, Fall, Fall Have your way, Have your way Fall, Fall, Fall Have your way, Have your way
My faith beyond what it feels like My faith beyond what it feels like All the way to You, All the way to breakthrough breakthrough My faith beyond what it feels like My faith beyond what it feels like Not by power or might Holy Spirit right now...
Something's changing in the spirit Something's breaking I can feel it Heaven come down Heaven come down."
God was wrecking me.
These words were hitting me right in the heart. I realized God was trying to get something to me -- something I'd never heard before. It's so easy to listen to Christian songs or even read the Bible and miss things. I think when we go through life and various difficulties, sometimes we lose the awestruck wonder of God, which results in us not hearing what He's saying. He's always speaking.
I felt impressed to share this. As we go about our day, whatever desire, goal, dream or passion you're holding on to, just know something is happening in the spirit. God is behind the scenes operating on our behalf.
The world is in panic right now over this Coronavirus. The stock market is rapidly dipping, jobs are in question and it's causing real fear. It's ok to acknowledge that this virus is an issue and to take preventive measures but remember to have faith above what it looks like right now.
God is still with us and for us.
I'm here today to remind you of that.
Today, take time to get before God in prayer and let Him permeate your heart, mind, and soul. Invite Heaven to come down in your life. Allow your faith to be built back up. Invite Holy Spirit to have His way on this earth.
Something is truly changing in the spirit. Don't miss it.
