Poser or Praiser?

Sometimes Christians do silly things. We try to wring things out of people who are unwilling to do them while dismissing what is done by others as meaningless. Recently, while watching videos online, I came across several young children who have an extraordinary anointing on their lives.

In the course of watching the videos my heart has been warmed. Unfortunately I cannot say the same thing about many of the insults comments posted which were at best "cold as ice." I would have been disturbed but the Holy Spirit reminded me of a Scripture that helped me to better understand.

But when the chief priests and the teachers of the law saw the wonderful things he did and the children shouting in the temple area, “Hosanna to the Son of David,” they were indignant. “Do you hear what these children are saying?” they asked him. “Yes,” replied Jesus, “have you never read, “‘From the lips of children and infants you have ordained praise’?” Matt 21:15-16
 
Here is what I believe God was saying to me. Religious minds will never discern the things of the Spirit. They could not then and they cannot now. Don't let them steal the moment. Be saddened by their ignorance oblivion but don't allow them to steal My praise. Be child-like in your faith and I will reveal Myself to you in ways you never imagined.
 
Ways like He has to 5 year old Kaitlyn Mayer. Poser or praiser? Watch the video and decide for yourself. My mind is made up and I have come to the same conclusion as Jesus.
 
"I praise you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because you have hidden these things from the wise and learned, and revealed them to little children." Matthew 11:25
 


“Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” Matthew 19:14

The only one who can truly judge whether she is a poser or praiser, is the recipient of her praise - our Awesome and Almighty God... Whether posing or not, let HIS name be praised forevermore!!

Be blessed and be holy!

How beautiful that God is blessing his little ones to bring praises to the worship service and the adults are wise enough to back them.

Melinda,
Thanks for setting my morning to worship thru this gifted, uninhibited, spirit-filled 5yr. old Kaitlyn who has a HEART that is after God.

May each of us join in her footsteps & empty ourselves thru the power of praise to the Almighty King.

Blessings,
~~Melinda~~

I really believe that God is going to start using more children in the days ahead to proclaim His Holiness! God is so good! He loves us so much! But he hates sin! And He will cleanse America once again!

How beautiful, sometimes I nod and think to myself that religious was the worst thing that happened to God's people. It's about our personal relationship with the Lord and living in the spirit, but too many people are consumed with the Law and they forget why Jesus came to earth in the first place. This little girl is gifted, thank you for sharing!

My spirit says, "Delightful"! I believe my spirit and the Holy Spirit are in agreement. I believe he was smiling as Kaitlyn sang this song to Him. Let the critics rage. They cannot touch the Lord's delight in His children.
