I do this in my personal time with God, and I do this in a worship service……I take a pause from my words of worship and I close my eyes and envision myself reverently walking into the throne room of God. When I arrive at the foot of the throne, I kneel and my form of worship changes from words to wordlessness. I am in the throne room of the King of Kings. I am in awe. There….are….no….words….for the beauty of what I behold. My worship becomes my silence, my worship becomes my kneeling, my worship becomes my outstretched arms, my worship becomes my posture of listening. And my worship is in my waiting……..waiting for the Creator of the Universe, the One who formed me in my mother’s womb, the rock of my salvation, my strong tower, the beginning and the end……to………speak…….my ears are attentive to His voice, my heart is open and surrendered…….I wait……in silence….and….then....He speaks. I receive a scripture, or a word, or a vision, or a deep sense of peace. And then joy fills my soul. And all I want to do is savor the Word(s) that He spoke……….. to break my silence would be a disruption to what I just experienced with the Great I Am, so I remain silent for as long as I can….because His voice is all I want to hear.
“Come, let us worship and bow down.
Let us kneel before the Lord our maker, for he is our God. We are the people he watches over, the flock under his care. If only you would listen to his voice today!”
Psalms 95:6-7 NLT
