May we rise up and insist not on our own ingenuity and skill, but let us call out for the very presence of God.
We have become so skilled at drawing a crowd, but in our skill to draw a crowd, we have substituted that for the very presence of God. We have fallen into our own ingenuity trap and think our high tech worship with a huge crowd dancing to our incredibly talented musical performance is a “move of God.”
Help us, Lord.
Help us to fall away from the dependence on our own skill, or hiring that skill so we can impress people, and let us rise up in new resurrection faith.
We ask you to SHOW UP. Not because of our great talent, but because without you we are truly nothing.
