Intercession

Valuing His ability to set things right over and above the circumstances of life.  

No better way one can give honor to Him than to seek His face.  Is prayer not just that, Worship most heartfelt, specifically, intercession for others?  Intercession brings us into a place where we are giving Him all the glory as the one and only source of goodness and blessing.  Yahweh, AlephTav, AlphaOmega, the true beginning and end of the answer to their needs.
The act of submitting our will to His, in prayer, seeking His answers to the trials and pains in others lives, is worship most sweet.
Taking care of the widows and orphans through standing in the gap for them through intercession.  How better to honor Him than to listen to HIs voice and give utterance to the words of deliverance He gives us for the situations of life.  Are we not commanded to lift up one another in prayer, to seek His will for our brothers and sisters to stand up for them when they cannot stand on their own.  Like Aaron and Hur who held up Moses arms lest he grow faint in interceding for Israel, let us sustain each other by His strength.
Intercessory prayer is the release of the living waters in us, into the lives and situations of those we intercede for.
Papa says “Pray and cease not, Pray and faint not, it is not pleading with me or begging to seek my will for those I put on your heart.  Co-labor with me, bring breath my desires in the earth”

Worship of Fear?

We Christians generally think of worship in a positive manner, as in ascribing worth to Papa God; our Creator, Sustainer, Father.  However worship is ascribing worth to one thing which therefore by definition debases other things. The new found “glory” of the object of our worship blinds our eyes to everything else.

So, what about this concept of worshipping fear?  When we dwell in the realm of fear, we push aside all faith and therefore all that is positive.  We sink into the “slough of despond” like Pilgrim in Bunyan’s classic.  Worry is the worship of fear.  It contains all the components of worship, we ascribe great importance to the subject of our worry, our thoughts dwell on it or mutter it, chewing it like the cow chews her cud deriving all the evil “nutrition” possible from the worrisome thoughts.
I have been a consummate worry worshipper in my life and it’s end is never good.  This affliction or iniquity is common among those of us who love to engage in worship of the true and living Father of Lights.
Why then do we go off the faith rails into worryville so quickly?  What is it about worry that is so easy?  The answer lies in where we are looking, are we focused on this temporal world with all it’s issues and fears or are we looking intently into the light of Jesus glorious face and His good pleasure to bring us into the full revelation of His Kingdom.
Let us always seek first His Kingdom in every thought, word and deed…   I think I read that somewhere.
