Jaye Thomas is leading worship, right now. You can almost sense the smiles from their hearts : )
This is at the heart of what is right! Though I’d still like to see more real worship and less ~”Do this, Lord.” We don’t have to tell Him what to do. If we draw near to Him, He WILL draw near to us.
“Draw near to God and He will draw near to you.” (James 4:8a)
And God inhabits the praises of His people — not the “bless us, Lord” songs:
“But you are holy, you who inhabit the praises of Israel.” (Psalm 22:3)
When we worship, He will bless us if we’re worshiping in Spirit and in TRUTH – right with God and each other! We will be filled! It’s automatic. He said what He’d do. He will honor His word.
Jaye’s team (Cory’s team, actually) will be worshiping on and off for the first half of tonight’s regularly scheduled Student Awakening meeting. The meetings can be watched online, Wed – Sat, 6 pm – 12 pm (central time), every week. http://www.ihop.org/Publisher/Article.aspx?ID=1000067211
Archives of the awakening are also available for a few days at the prayer room’s archive player: http://www.ihop.org/Publisher/Article.aspx?ID=1000058181
There seems to be an extra-specially positive attitude at IHOP in the past week or two, which I’m thinking may be due to the recent teachings on worship that I’ve only gotten a glimpse of, so far, watching Mike Bickle’s podcast and hearing a small portion of the messages he was referring to (webcast), that were taught at IHOP, recently:
Go Jaye and team!
Jeff : )
