Early In the Morning

August 14, 2008

“Holy, Holy, Holy Lord God Almighty

Early in the morning, our song shall rise to Thee.”

 

This past Saturday at we woke up around 5:00 am and headed down to the Greenville, NC Convention Center to lead worship from 6:00 to 8:00 am.  If you know me, that’s awful early.  We had the honor in participating with Matthew Lilley and 6:22 at Worshipfest this year as part of their 24+ time of worship and intercession.  It was an amazing time.

There is just something about being awake when most people aren’t.  The quiet of a new day, but yet the silence is electric with the power of God.  In those moments, the whispers of God can be so clear.  It was one of the more powerful times of worship we have lead.  Not because of the manifestations of God, but because of the power of His presence.

God’s presence transforms us, prepares us, and purifies us.  It helps us keep our perspective straight, to see things as He does.  I want to encourage you to take a morning this week, get up ridiculously early just to spend some time with God.  See what things God has waiting in the silence of a new day.
