I woke up this morning at 4:30am singing Psalm 24, “Lift up you heads, be lifted up o ancient doors; Lift up your heads, o you gates, be lifted up; that the king of glory may come in!” Singing is not my go to, but this morning a song came out of me and so I sang with it. After singing, I opened my bible to Psalm 24 sensing the Lord was on this psalm this morning, so I began to pray the psalm and the words were dancing on the page as I prayed. This is a psalm I know well, but today it was rhythmic, radiant and releasing revelation of the likes I had not seen before. The word of God is truly a live and active (Hebrews 4:12).
While praying Psalm 24, the Lord reminds me of what He showed me and spoke to me on Sunday morning during worship just a few days ago. I saw in the spirit that as we had our hands raised, the throne of God was resting on our hands as a congregation. Then the Lord showed me that as we raise our hands, it opens up our hearts to worship not with lips alone but with heart as well. When our hearts began to sing with our hands raised, the throne we were holding up with our hands began to move, similar to someone crowd surfing at a concert, but it was the throne of God moving among us. It was as though the throne was flowing with the songs our hearts were singing as our hands were raised.
I had never seen a connection between our hands being raised and our hearts opening until Sunday in church and then the Lord establishes this was His voice I was hearing when I read Psalm 24:3-4 this morning. “Who may ascend into the hill of the LORD? And who may stand in His holy place? He who has clean hands and a pure heart, Who has not lifted up his soul to falsehood And has not sworn deceitfully.” Clean hands an a pure heart, there is the hands and heart connection. It was a beautiful picture I saw as the throne moved among us. Throw up your hands, it opens your heart and it moves the throne of God over your head.
