I Will Exalt The One Who Lifted Me (Video)

 

Lyrics:

What can I say? What can I do?
What can I bring to offer You?
There is no gold, no precious pearl,
nothing on earth that compares to You.

Lord, here I stand with empty hands.

I will exalt the one who lifted me
out of the miry clay to heights of eagle’s wings.
Words cannot express. All I know is this:
You changed me. You changed me.

I will remember how I used to be.
I was so bound, but now I’m free.
I will exalt the one who lifted me.

I’ve never known a father like You,
a love that is strong, so gentle and true.
You hold me close, just like a child.
Safe in Your arms, there is no doubt.
This is my place. This is the way.

I will exalt the one who lifted me
out of the miry clay to heights of eagle’s wings.
Words cannot express. All I know is this:
You changed me. You changed me.

I can remember how I used to be.
I was so bound, but now I’m free.
I will exalt the one who lifted me.

Psalm 3 Song – Salvation Belongs to the LORD (Esther Mui) Video

Note: This song is from http://www.scripturesongsforworship.com. You can also download a free MP3 version of this song by clicking here.

 

Lord, how they have increased who trouble me!
Many are they who rise up against me.Many are they who say of me, “There is no help for him in God.”
But You, O Lord, are a shield for me, My glory and the One who lifts up my head.
I cried to the Lord with my voice, And He heard me from His holy hill. Selah
I lay down and slept; I awoke, for the Lord sustained me.
I will not be afraid of ten thousands of people
Who have set themselves against me all around.
Arise, O Lord; Save me, O my God!
For You have struck all my enemies on the cheekbone;
You have broken the teeth of the ungodly.
Salvation belongs to the Lord.
Your blessing is upon Your people. (Psalm 3)

Psalm 113 – Who Is like the Lord Our God?

113 Praise the Lord!
Praise, O servants of the Lord,
    praise the name of the Lord!

Blessed be the name of the Lord
    from this time forth and forevermore!
From the rising of the sun to its setting,
    the name of the Lord is to be praised!

The Lord is high above all nations,
    and his glory above the heavens!
Who is like the Lord our God,
    who is seated on high,
who looks far down
    on the heavens and the earth?
He raises the poor from the dust
    and lifts the needy from the ash heap,
to make them sit with princes,
    with the princes of his people.
He gives the barren woman a home,
    making her the joyous mother of children.
Praise the Lord!

Reflection:

Praise the name of the Lord God. Everyone who works for God be encouraged to praise his Holy name.

Don’t praise Him only now but instead praise him now and forever.

From your time of getting up to the time of resting praise the Lord.

God is not like anything common. For he is exalted above all nations and the glory of heaven. No one can compare to our Lord God who created the heavens and the earth.

Merciful is the Lord for he uplifts the poor and needy. He places them with the princes of his people.

Bountiful are the Lord God’s blessings. He lifts up the barren woman in her affliction so that she receives children bringing much joy to her.

Praise God because he is worthy to be praised!

Overload during worship?

Over a period of the last 10 years, I’d face a common trend over and
over again. The worst thing I was really clueless all the while
despite my best efforts.

Here it what I faced, when in deep worship I’d usually get some
revelations from God. Sometimes ideas of charity and tips how to
evangelize, tips how to drive out devils etc. On the outside it would
look good that one gets so many good ideas and words of wisdom.

The main issue was that such info overloaded did one main thing: I
would sit down to either write or pray about the revelation I got but
at the end I realized I’d completely be cut off from continual
worship. So from experiencing the fullness of God’s glory I’d end up
analyzing things. Its not a sin to discern but getting in to deep
introspection mid-way during worship is not a good thing at all.

So much so that in the past year I’d do more of praise and less of
worship.(Folks, there is a difference between praise and worship).
Because I was fed up of being distracted by the abundance of
revelations while in deep worship. I even avoid going to the chapel
due to this.

Then this year I got a revelation when not in prayer (yes it possible
to get revelations at the most unexpected time). It was that as God is
the Lord of Order he does not dwell in chaos. So he will NEVER
interrupt you worshiping him by even giving any thoughts.

So after this when I worship even if I’d get a lot of revelations, I’d
still continue to worship without bothering to stop and had a good
worship time ever after.
