With You (Paradoxology)
Not only do I believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, God the Father, and the Holy Ghost, I also am a firm believer in the local Church. I trust the Lord for my salvation and because the blood of Jesus has been shed for me and I believe and confess that He has risen from the dead, salvation is mine. And I would suggest that coupling that Biblical belief system with involvement in a local Church has all the makings of being on the right path.
‘So let all that I am be consumed with Who You Are” are the words of worship I am listening to at this very moment (and you’re welcome to do the same by clicking through to the YouTube video here). And this beautiful song was birthed in the local Church I’m involved with, right here in the greater Charlotte area.
“There’s nowhere I’d rather be when you’re singing over me.” Wow! And I have the privilege to enter into worship with others who love the Lord, too. And not only is this great therapy for me, but it also pleases the Father to hear us worship Him this way.
Therapeú, (pronounced ther-ap-yoo’-o), actually means to adore (God) as well as to to relieve (of disease). Literally this therapy not only means to cure and to heal, it also means to worship. This Greek word is used in this New Testament verse.
And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing (therapeú) all manner of sickness and all manner of disease among the people. Matthew 4:23
As the song says, So let all that I am be consumed with who you are.
Oh the glory of your presence, What more could I ask for?
So, as you adore Him in worship (therapy), trust that His healing of “all manner of sickness and all manner of disease” is therapy to you, as well.
And if you’d love to sing this in your local Church, the lyrics and chord charts are here.
