February has been the month to celebrate love ever since the Middle Ages. Valentines Day has become one of the most popular holidays among lovers and florists! The common symbols of Valentine’s Day include cupids, hearts, roses, candy, teddy bears, and words of adoration. Children exchange valentine cards decorated with current comic and cartoon icons. Adults have continued this tradition of card giving which makes this day, behind Christmas, the second largest card-sending holiday of the year. Cupids with bows and arrows represent Roman mythology. Cupid was the son of Venus, the goddess
I was going through my journal today and found my notes from when Dan McCollam visited Convergence Supernatural School of Ministry back in March, 2009. I thought I would share some awesome insight he gave about the power of the song.
- A song delights the heart of the Father. God is looking for worshippers. Worship is for the delight of the Father.
- A song displaces the enemy and overturns atmospheres. (1 Samual 16:23) The battle is for air space, establishing air supremecy through worship.
- A song carries a breaker anointing that shatters chains and yokes of bondage.
- A song opens up atmospheres of supernatural encounters. (1 Samuel 10: 6; 19)
- A song refreshes, encourages and instructs the saints. (Eph. 5:17-19; Col. 3:16) Your experience will always rise to the level of your declaration. Songs have the power to shape mindsets. It’s not those who write the laws who shape a generation, but those who write songs.
- A song releases personal transformation. (2 Cor. 3:18; 2 Peter 1) Whatever you see in Him you can have in you. Whatever you behold, you become.
- A song activates the Kingdom of Heaven. If you want Heaven on earth, you must establish the same atmosphere as Heaven = Worship!
There is a song inside of you that only you can sing. It doesn’t matter how good you sing. God loves to hear your voice praising Him. Worship is a powerful tool. It brings us into the presence of the Lord and it sends the enemy to flight. On those days when I am finding it hard to pray, I simply put on worship music and I find myself with renewed strength
I‘ve been feeling impressed to read and begin meditating on Psalm 139. I absolutely love this scripture, because it reminds me that I was created by a loving and powerful God, and that He formed me perfectly. I am His great masterpiece! He delights in me and calls me GOOD! As a woman who still struggles at times understanding the depth of God’s love, this is always a refreshing read. Today, I’ve been chewing on the last few verses:
Search me, O God, and know my heart;
test me and know my anxious thoughts.
