“Deliver me from the guilt of bloodshed, O God, you who are God my Savior, and my tongue will sing of your righteousness. Open my lips, Lord, and my mouth will declare your praise.” Psalms 51: 14-15
Oh Lord, how we but praise You! We sing Your praise for delivering from the guilt of bloodshed. Father, we ask for more of your people to be delivered throughout all the nations, for more on this earth to declare Your praise! How we praise Your Holy Name for the mighty and great works You have done! Amen.
The morning air whispered breaths of a new day as I gazed over the mountain tops from Eagle Rock’s magnificent view. The clouds were laying as pillows on a bed of mountains for miles upon miles. As I sat clenching my coffee in both hands, Bible in lap, taking in the picture of breathtaking beauty, a faint voice filled the once silent scene. It was a lovely sound, one that mirrored the winsomeness surrounding it. The sound led me to see a most beautiful sight. Out on the rock at Eagle Rock was one of our participants from the Chinese retreat. She was adorned in all white. Her shirt flowed in the wind and her hands were lifted as she swayed back and forth rhythmically matching the melody on her lips. What an incredible picture of God’s grace, healing and freedom! This woman who had been in tremendous bondage and hindered in worship was now free and her lips could not help but praise her King!
It is a vision I shall never forget, our Chinese friend out on the high rock overlooking the mountains singing praises to our Lord. The Lord had brought his beloved daughter 20,000 miles to set her free. Her heart could only praise Him!
After the retreat ended that Sunday, she continued to praise Him. For hours, she sang and sang and sang. It was the most angelic sound in the world to our ears.
Whom the Son sets free, is free indeed.
This is her story. This is her song. Praising her Savior all the day long.
