I heard this new song, A Touch of Heaven by Hillsong Worship on Sunday and wanted to share it with you. Throughout the past few weeks at LifeNet we have been talking about our dependance on God and the concept of surrendering our lives to Him. I kept thinking to myself, how can I do that in my day to day life? As I was listening to this song, the first verse stood out to me. It says:
How I live for the moments
Where I’m still in Your presence
All the noise dies down
Lord, speak to me now
You have all my attention
I will linger and listen
Lord, I know my heart wants more of You
My heart wants something new
So I surrender all
After hearing this song, I felt in my heart that this song turned more into a personal prayer. The message that spoke to my heart is that God simply wants us to be with him. I know that is probably cliche but it is so true and often something we put on the shelf due to our busy schedules. As the song says, when we desire to experience God in a new way and “are desperate for a touch of heaven,” God is ready to speak to us. The question is: are we ready to be still and seek his face in prayer, worship, reading the Bible, etc? As we slow down and “live for the moments where we are still in His presence,” I am sure God is going to shake our worlds. He will reveal to us the mysteries and his plans for our lives, new visions, and a deeper understanding of who he is. How exciting is that?!
As a Christian community, we are then able to join together during small groups or at church and share with one another what God is doing within our own lives as a source of encouragement and to build each other up. Hebrews 10:23 says “Let us hold tightly without wavering to the hope we affirm, for God can be trusted to keep his promise. Let us think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works. And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another, especially now the the day of his truth is drawing near.”
Enjoy the song. I hope it blesses you.
