VISION:  Today at church I received a Word from the Lord.  We were singing the following lyrics to the song Majestic by Lincoln Brewster:


The heavens declare Your greatness

The oceans cry out to You

The mountains, they bow down before You

So I'll join with the earth and I'll give my praise to You.


I saw an ocean wave as it was bowing over, and then at the deepest trough, it burst forth in a crash, sending particles of water upwards.  As I was pondering the fact that water is made up of moving molecules that perpetually advance forward,  He reminded me that He created every living thing to praise Him and if we keep silent, even the rocks will cry out to His Presence. 


I saw the wonderful reality that many ocean waves are divine gestures of worship.  They crest up then bow over and down before Him, and follow through by a burst of praise.  As I was pondering this, I heard Him say, “Perfect Praise.”  I wondered what that meant and asked Him.


Then I saw another wave and this time as it bowed before Him, it crashed full force into a large rock.  He told me that perfect praise is when we hit unmovable obstacles and boundaries in our lives, if we first bow down to Him and submit ourselves to His will in the situation, and then we lift up our hearts in praise that He is God and He puts all boundaries in our lives for a purpose, that is perfect praise. 


Ps 96:9 NKJV

Oh, worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness! Tremble before Him, all the earth.




OT:7812 shachah (shaw-khaw'); a primitive root; to depress, i.e. prostrate (especially reflexive, in homage to royalty or God):

KJV - bow (self) down, crouch, fall down (flat), humbly beseech, do (make) obeisance, do reverence, make to stoop, worship.

PRAYER:  Lord, You alone are God and we bow low and submit ourselves totally and wholly to You.  We praise You that You delight in every detail of our lives and even what was intended for our harm, You turn for good.  You are the Redeemer that redeems all for Your good purposes, no matter what messes we face... no matter what obstacle, and no matter how bad things appear.  We take this opportunity to bow before You and honor your Sovereignty in our lives.  Thank You for Your goodness. Thank You for the obstacles and the boundaries.  Thank You for the reminder that the waves in the ocean continue to praise You.


Luke 19:40 NKJV

But He answered and said to them, "I tell you that if these should keep silent, the stones would immediately cry out." 


Ps 98:7-9 NKJV

Let the sea roar, and all its fullness, The world and those who dwell in it; Let the rivers clap their hands; Let the hills be joyful together before the LORD, For He is coming to judge the earth.  With righteousness He shall judge the world, and the peoples with equity.


Ps 96:11-12 NKJV

Let the heavens rejoice, and let the earth be glad; Let the sea roar, and all its fullness; Let the field be joyful, and all that is in it.  Then all the trees of the woods will rejoice before the LORD.




ANNA DREAM: I was watching a narrow place in the river gush over some huge black rocks. The water was very clear and I could see all the way to the bottom of the river. As I watched it, to my astonishment, the rocks began to slowly creep forward. They gradually increased their speed until finally they literally moved right on down the river. The entire way was open again and became wide and flowing down a gentle slope.
