GOD PAUSE: I was reminded this morning that it is healthy --- even biblical --- for me to get out of my comfort zone when it comes to worshiping and praising the Lord. Now, I know that worship is a very personal or intimate thing. And that it's not only a matter of the heart, but it is also a powerful spiritual weapon. I just read in Psalm 98:4 to “Go ahead, everyone, and shout out your praises with joy! Break out of the box and let loose with the most joyous sound of praise!” Now I don't claim to know what that would look like in your life. But God wants us to take our praise and worship to another level. Lord, help me and my friend to get out of the routine when it comes to worship. May we break out and let loose in ways that You show us. Amen and amen.
