Good morning!  I was just skimming through a few Youtube clips this morning and I was really touched and encouraged by this particular clip and testimony.  You know, there are so many contemporary Christian songs that we sing that lack the content and depth and truth of the older hymns.  This song isn’t one of them. Enjoy!

Desert Song

– Brooke Fraser (Hillsong)

-VERSE 1-
This is my prayer in the desert,
When all that’s within me feels dry,
This is my prayer in my hunger and need,
My God is the God who provides,

-VERSE 2-
And this is my prayer in the fire,
In weakness, or trial, or pain,
There is a faith proved more worth than gold,
So refine me Lord through the flame,

-CHORUS-
I will bring praise,
I will bring praise,
No weapon formed against me shall remain,
I will rejoice, I will declare,
God is my victory and He is here,

-VERSE 3-
This is my prayer in the battle,
When triumph is still on its way,
I am a conqueror and co-heir with Christ,
So firm on his promise I’ll stand,

-CHORUS-
I will bring praise,
I will bring praise,
No weapon formed against me shall remain,
I will rejoice, I will declare,
God is my victory and He is here,

-REFRAIN- x 4
All of my life, in every season,
You are still God,
I have a reason to sing,
I have a reason to worship,

-CHORUS-
I will bring praise,
I will bring praise,
No weapon formed against me shall remain,
I will rejoice, I will declare,
God is my victory and He is here,

-VERSE 4-
And this is my prayer in the harvest,
When favour and providence flow,
I know I’m filled to be emptied again,
The seed I receive I will sow

My wife and son (and his friend) and I are at the Hillsong Conference in Sydney…

You don’t have to go to a conference to experience God – do you?
You don’t have to go to a conference to worship God – do you?
You don’t have to go to a conference to learn about God – do you?

These are some of the thoughts I have had over the years. And they are true but… I have learnt about God and worshipped God (with 30,000 other worshippers) and I have experienced God at this years conference.

I must say “God got me last night”. I’ve been a little stand-off (ish) about not entering into the hype (there’s really not a lot of hype) but right at the end of the 4.30pm session I experienced God in worship in an amazing way (and I think a lot of others did as well). The presence of the Lord filled the Acer Arena (personally and corporately). I wasn’t longing for ‘experience’, I was longing to express my love and gratitude and thanks to my Heavenly Father and well, he took hold of me and I knew His presence. Now I could try and express this in words (all the outward signs etc) but I think I would fall short and diminish what has happened.

God is good!
