During worship today, we were singing a song that spoke
of “the fire of worship.” The song asked that God would “fan the flames”
of that fire, which got me thinking about the Holy Spirit as that ever
present fire burning in us.
In the same song, however, it spoke of God “coming”; implying
He was not already there. I thought to myself “hang on a second”
worship is not a process of God coming to us--implying that it is
God who must move--rather, worship is a process, initiated by us,
by which we become more aware of His constant presence
(a smoldering and eternal flame fanned into a roaring fire) as we
filter out the noise that obscures the still small voice and we once
again “feel” his presence.
God is all; in all!
