I’ve been in prayer meetings declaring that we will see the Glory (dust) of the Lord and to experience the Anointing (oil) of the Holy Spirit by standing boldly before the throne of God decreeing these things to come to pass. However, I now believe that is not the correct position when seeking His Glory or the Anointing of the Lord. During these times we should rather come with a worshipful spirit; one of praise and adoration.
The word for worship in scripture is actually to lick the feet as a dog. It is a place of sincere humility of reverence and adoration for the Lord who cares for and attends to your every need. When the Lord began to speak to me about this He posed the question “How can one experience the dust if they are not at the feet? And how can they experience the oil if not at the hem of the garment of the High Priest? Although we are kings and priest in the earth, we must recognize Him as King of kings and Lord of lords. Our dominion and reign in the earth is only given by His hand.
This brings to my imagination the woman in Matthew 26 who poured the ointment upon the head of the Lord. This in my mind is similar to how the priest is anointed. The oil is poured out so that it flows down the head, to the beard, and even to the hem of the garment. This woman by her one act of worship prepared Jesus for his burial. Without even knowing why she was doing by pouring out all she had she helped to user in the Kingdom of God on the earth.
Another image brought to mind is the woman in Luke 7. She is found washing the feet of the Lord with her tears, wiping, them with her hair, and anointing them with very prescious ointment. She poured out all she had, thereby lavishing the Lord with praise. It is beautiful how she counted her own glory only as a rag when given opportunity to experience worship at His feet. She kisses His feet with tears flowing from her eyes. She experienced the the glory of God through true worship of the Lord. In that position of faith she found not only forgiveness; she found peace or in other words she left whole wherein she had no want or need of anything. Nothing was missing or lacking from her life because of the one act of worship.
I believe that if we are going to truly experience the Glory of God we must properly position ourselves in our worship… Then and only then will we see the fullness of God made manifest.
I believe that if we are going to truly experience the Glory of God we must properly position ourselves in our worship. We must pour out the most valuable part of ourselves on Him with total abandon We must consider our own righteousness to be nearly rags. We must lavish our praise upon Him. Then and only then will we see the fullness of God made manifest.
