Hey Rad Rev Girls,

Rachelle's devotional Going Shoeless really got me thinking about meeting with God in humility.

About a year ago, I was having trouble praying. It wasn't that I didn't want to talk to God or that there was sin in my heart. I was watching my life crumble around me and I didn't know what to say to God. Every time I did try to talk to God about what was going on, I just felt worried and confused.

I told this to a friend and she encouraged me to play worship music. I did that and it changed how I approached God.

Instead of coming to God with my usual worry list, I realized that God was King of the Universe and he already had everything under control!

Later, I understood what my friend taught me was how to humble myself and recognize that I was in God's presence.

1 Peter 5:6 tells us to "...humble yourselves under the mighty power of God, and at the right time he will lift you up in honor."

We can't truly worship God and worry at the same time. And we certainly can't worship God and be proud. One will always win out over the other.

Here's a song that always humbles me and puts me in awe of Who God is. If you can't see the video below, click here to see it.



"God of Wonders" ~ Third Day

Lord of all creation
Of water, earth, and sky
The heavens are Your tabernacle
Glory to the Lord on High

God of wonders, beyond our galaxy
You are holy, holy
The universe declares Your majesty
You are holy, holy

Lord of heaven and earth
Lord of heaven and earth

Early in the morning
I will celebrate the light
And as I stumble through the darkness
I will call Your name by night

God of wonders, beyond our galaxy
You are holy, holy
The universe declares Your majesty
You are holy, holy

Lord of heaven and earth
Lord of heaven and earth

Hallelujah to the Lord of heaven and earth (3x)

God of wonders, beyond our galaxy
You are holy, holy
Precious Lord, reveal Your heart to me
Father holy, holy
The universe declares Your majesty
You are holy, holy, holy, holy

Hallelujah to the Lord of heaven and earth (6X)

Lord of heaven and earth
Lord of heaven and earth

Early in the morning
I will celebrate the light
And when I stumble in the darkness
I will call Your Name by night

God of wonders beyond our galaxy
You are holy, holy
The universe declares your majesty
You are holy, holy

Lord of heaven and earth
Lord of heaven and earth

Hallelujah to the Lord of heaven and earth
Hallelujah to the Lord of heaven and earth

God of wonders beyond our galaxy
You are holy, holy
Precious Lord reveal Your heart to me
Father hold me, hold me

The universe declares Your majesty
You are holy, holy, holy, holy

Hallelujah to the Lord of heaven and earth (6x)

An Exciting Announcement!

This Website Has Moved

Hey Rad Rev Girls,

We have an exciting announcement to make today: We're moving!

We know we've changed a little bit and we wanted our website to reflect that. We spent a few months talking about concepts and finally came up with this one on RadRevolution.com.

Some of you might know us as 'living with purpose: a radical revolution' but we really felt like Radical Revolution captured what we are about. Radical Revolution is about discovering God's radical plan for your life!

You can still see the old design up at RadRevolution.org for right now. We'll fully transition to the other site by next Monday. In the meantime, we want to answer some of the questions you might have.

I'm an email user. Do I have to re-subscribe to continue getting emails?

No. We'll handle updating the feed so you receive new posts seamlessly. They might look a little different but they'll still feature the same great content.

Will the new site work on my iPad/iPod/other fancy device?

Yes! We worked to make sure you could still get content from us on a mobile device without waiting forever for things to load.

I'd rather follow Radical Revolution on a social network. Are you on Facebook?

Yes, we are! We're here on Facebook and we're also tweeting on Twitter.

I still have questions! Where can I contact a real live person?

You can email Debra for questions or comments about Radical Revolution, the redesign or anything else related to faith and life.

Going Shoeless

Exodus 3:5, “Then He said, "Do not come near here; remove your sandals from your feet, for the place on which you are standing is holy ground." (NIV)

Going ShoelessI take for granted the fact that I can meet with God every day. I forget that He is waiting, holding open His arms, inviting me to enter His presence.



I wonder if Moses had a similar problem. Maybe, Moses had a sheep-tending-before-God tendency. Perhaps, Moses struggled to come humbly before God, too.

When the former prince of Egypt became passionate about freeing his people, but didn’t run his plans past God first, he ended up in exile in the desert. He spent many days herding sheep.

Little did he know that God planned for him to shepherd the flock of Israel.

First, though, God had to get Moses’ attention. So God set a bush on fire.

At last, Moses paid attention to God when he saw the burning bush. Moses was deeply humbled as he realized that this was God speaking. To him! As a symbol of his humility, Moses took off his shoes at God’s command.

Can you see the sacred symbol behind Moses’ action? He was in the presence of God Almighty. Out of respect and in order to honor his God, Moses took off his shoes and “hid his face, because he was afraid to look at God” (verse 6).

This prince, criminal, and shepherd recognized that he was standing in God's presence. I wonder, how often do I acknowledge that I am in God’s presence?

I'm usually too full of my own pressing concerns, requests, and emotions to concentrate on the fact that I am bowing down before the King of the universe.

How smoothly my prayer time would go if I made a habit of acknowledging who God is and worshipping Him before I spring into the “I need’s”?

There’s only one way to find out...

Will you go with me to regularly approach the Throne of Grace by first taking off your shoes?

Dear Lord, I am humbled. I am in Your presence and that is an amazing and life-changing thing. Thank You! In Jesus' name, Amen.
GO DEEPER

Ponder: "My hands have made both heaven and earth; they and everything in them are mine. I, the LORD, have spoken! "I will bless those who have humble and contrite hearts, who tremble at my word. - Isaiah 66:2

Apply: Get before God and whisper His names in humility and praise. Soak in who He is.
