O Lord, You’re Beautiful

The Lord used the following song at a special time in my life when the Holy Spirit was just beginning to flow thru me in a new way to touch others. It was thru beholding the beauty of the Lord that He allowed a new song to first rise up from within me: ‘Celebrate the King’. This new experience also caused me to search my heart/motives and to see that there is a difference between seeking the Lord for the gift and seeking His face to truly know Him, the person.

 

O Lord, You’re Beautiful
Keith Green

Oh Lord, You’re beautiful
Your face is all I seek
For when Your eyes are on this child
Your grace abounds to me.

Oh Lord, please light the fire
That once burned bright and clean
Replace the lamp of my first love
That burns with holy fear.

I want to take Your Word and shine it all around
But first help me just to live it, Lord
And when I’m doing well, help me to never seek a crown
For my reward is giving glory to You.

The eyes of the Lord are upon —

  • But the eyes of the Lord are on those who fear Him, on those whose hope is in His unfailing love. -Ps 33:18
  • For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous, and His ears are open to their prayers; but the face of the Lord is against those who do evil. -1 Pe 3:12
  • For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is loyal{fully devoted} to Him. -2 Chron 16:9

 

The Father’s heart is open to those who have an ongoing relationship with Him; His children who not only come to Him with their needs but who also seek His face to enjoy their relationship with Him.

The Father’s heart is open to His children who come to simply abide and  behold His beauty.

John 15:7 NASB    If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you.

John 15:7 MSG   But if you make yourselves at home with me and my words are at home in you, you can be sure that whatever you ask will be listened to and acted upon.

Psalm 27:4-6    One thing I have asked from the LORD, this is what I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the LORD and to seek Him in His temple. For in the day of trouble He will keep me safe in His dwelling; He will hide me in the shelter of His tabernacle and set me high upon a rock. Then my head will be exalted above the enemies who surround me; at His tabernacle will I sacrifice with shouts of joy; I will sing and make music to the LORD.

Heart check–
There is nothing like feeling His power/anointing flowing thru you touching others but …

Are you seeking His anointing — His hand or are you seeking His person — the relationship?

What would you do if the flow of His power or anointing thru you stopped?

Luke 10:17-21    The seventy-two returned with joy and said, “Lord, even the demons submit to us in your name.”

He replied, “I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven. I have given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy; nothing will harm you. However, do not rejoice that the spirits submit to you, but rejoice that your names are written in heaven.”

At that time Jesus, full of joy through the Holy Spirit, said, “I praise you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because you have hidden these things from the wise and learned, and revealed them to little children. Yes, Father, for this was your good pleasure.

From Daily Promise
http://dailyqt.crossmap.com/    Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up. (Ja 4:10 KJV) Reflection: This conditional promise can be misused by some who have ulterior motives, but when we truly humble ourselves in the Lord’s sight it can in no way be for our own lifting up. True humility would put ourselves last and that is what makes this paradoxical truth so amazing. We cannot lift our own selves up; it is only God who is able to do that and He only does that when we are humbled before Him. We also saw this demonstrated in Christ who “humbled Himself to the point of death—even the death of the cross” yet “God exalted Him” (Phil 2:8-9).

1 Chronicles 16:8-11    Give thanks to the LORD, call on His name; make known among the nations what He has done. Sing to Him, sing praise to Him; tell of all His wonderful acts. Glory in His holy name; let the hearts of those who seek the LORD rejoice. Look to the LORD and His strength; seek His face always{continually}.

2 Samuel 6:21 … “I will celebrate before the LORD.”

Celebrate the King

I will celebrate before my King -2 Sam 6:21
I will celebrate my heart will sing.

The song of Jesus, let it rise
Burst forth from deep within. -Ps 16:11, 98:4

All my heart, All my soul, All my mind
With all my might -Mk 12:30
The song of Jesus, let it rise
All within me sings. -Ps 103:1

Chorus
Hal le lu Yah — Hal le lu -Ps 146:1; Rev 19:6
All honor, All glory, All praise
Worthy is the Lamb -Rev 5:12
Hal le lu Yah — Hal le lu
He is victorious, He reigns!
Celebrate, Celebrate the King.
