Numbers 4:16 (GW) “Eleazar, son of the priest Aaron, will be in charge of the oil for the lamps, the sweet-smelling incense, the daily grain offering, and the anointing oil. He is in charge of the whole tent and everything in it, the holy place and its contents.”
Beloved, you are called to be a priest – one who surrenders their life in service to Me – and part of a priest’s role is to facilitate My presence – the oil of My anointing – that My glory might burn brightly. Another part is that you lead worship by example, not just in praise, but in lifestyles of worship – heart fixed on Me – sacrificial particularly in the sense of surrendering control to Me (a holy offering).
As you release the reins of your life to Me, you demonstrate to others I AM trustworthy. No word need be spoken – I assure you, people see. Not only do they see, but they watch to see how I will respond. It is then they see My love and the inner strength, peace, and joy I bring. So live well, beloved, and walk in the priestly role you’ve been called to. Continue reading “Priestly Role, a Surrendered Life”

Romans 8:26 (AMPC) So too the [Holy] Spirit comes to our aid and bears us up in our weakness; for we do not know what prayer to offer nor how to offer it worthily as we ought, but the Spirit Himself goes to meet our supplication and pleads in our behalf with unspeakable yearnings and groanings too deep for utterance.
Make a sound, beloved. Let it come forth from inside you – whether it be a bursting shout, a mighty roar, or a groan too deep for words. Pour it forth – whether an offering of praise or a tool of intercession – release what is stirring in your belly, for I have placed it there. Let your sound echo through the heavenlies – breaking strongholds, declaring victory, and ascribing praise.
Do not hold back. Do not let the enemy steal your voice. Do not let concerns of what man may think hinder you from doing, being, and birthing that which you are called to. Break forth! Shout in victory! Let your sound declare it to be so! And so the thing shall be established. Release it! Mighty is your sound.

So hold nothing back. Worship Me with abandon. Dance, sing, wave your banners, be undignified and unashamed for the outpouring of your heart ministers to Mine; you undo Me!
