David said, I was glad when they said unto me, let us go into the house of the Lord (Psalm 122:1).

This past year has taught us that what we thought was freedom can be taken away in a moment. We thought in this country we were free to worship, until they shut down churches. We thought we were free to speak but then they said you must wear a mask. After experiencing draconian restrictions on our God given freedoms, on this day, I hope you, like me can join David with a new resolve, anticipation and excitement as we announce to every restriction, I’m going into the house of the Lord and I am glad!

Maskless I am going to worship loud, with hands raised high. With others I’m going to sing the songs of the Lord. With a wide open heart, ready to give I am going to bring a gift to the Lord. And with ears circumcised, I am going to hear the word of God. If I learned one thing in lockdown, I learned freedom is better than control; Liberty is better than lockdown; and as for me and my house we will worship the Lord.

No going back to Egypt, lockdown or masks for me, I’m free! Internally and externally I’m joining millions of others around the world declaring I am free to worship my God without restriction or reservation. This lockdown will boomerang on them as a generation is about to shout unto God with a voice of triumph! Here comes the roar of the lion of the tribe of Judah.
