23.05.19 – Breath On Us – Thursday Music

Today for our music devotional, Breath On Us, by Calvary Creative.

Meet me in the solitary

Meet me in the ordinary

Meet me in the sanctuary

Make my heart your home

How often we fall into the trap of thinking that our weekly attendance at a worship service is the only place we will encounter God that week. Acts 7.48-50 and 17.24 tell us clearly that God does not live, or His presence is not localised, to one particular place. So, He is with us in the solitary, He is with us in the ordinary humdrum of everyday life, and He is with us in the sanctuary of His church as we assemble together to worship Him. 

I want the fullness of your love

I want the treasure of your peace

I want the fullness of your love

Surrounding me

What a wonderful prayer this would be for us when we wake in the morning – Father, I want the fullness of your love, and the treasure of your peace to surround me today. God’s Word to us tells us that there is nowhere we can go to escape His presence, His good, loving, peace-brining presence (Psalm 139.7, 1 Kings 8.27, Jeremiah 23.24).

Spirit of God

Breathe on us

Spirit of God

Breath on us

Spirit of God

Fall on us

The encounter that the disciples had with the Holy Spirit in Acts 2 was unique and was so uniquely powerful that the church as we know it was birthed then and there, but, is it a bad thing to pray and ask God for a fresh filling of His Spirit today? Is it wrong to earnestly pray for the same Spirit that ministered to Jesus in the wilderness, the same Spirit that was present at creation, the same Spirit that allowed scared, dejected, timid men become powerful preachers of the Good News, is it wrong to pray for the same Spirit that raised Jesus from the dead to indwell us and fill us fresh each day? Absolutely not!


Point to ponder – 

Romans 8.11

If the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, he who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through his Spirit who dwells in you.


Prayer – Father, we want the fullness of your love, the treasure of your peace, and the same Spirit that raised Jesus from the dead to surround us today and every day. Give life to our mortal bodies, Lord, so that we in turn can use them for your glory. Amen.
