Jesus Christ taught us to pray with reverence fear when He modelled for us: “Holy be your name” (Matthew 6:9). His phrase, although it is a statement of truth, is also a petition, not a proclamation. A request, not an announcement. “Be holy, Lord.” Do whatever it takes to be holy in my life. Exalt yourself. Glorify yourself. You be Lord, and I’ll be quiet.
The Psalmist wrote what God said, “Be still and know that I am God" (Psalm 46:10). This verse contains a command with a promise. The command? "Be still," cover your mouth, bend your knees, wait on Him. The promise? You will "know that I am God." Amid today's global pandemic, make it a point to be still. Set your sights on Him. Let God be God. Pray, "Only by grace and mercy, Lord be holy in my life" 😊💪⚡ #ServeToLead
