That takes process and time.
I’m so glad the Bible records the phases and processes

consecration of HIS people
I believe that when we PRAY according to the Will of
GOD, like Jesus in the garden of Gethsemane, that is
The Bible says, watch and pray, not watch and sing.
Yes, Judah means praise, but praise is more than a
melody or harmony, it is a life consecrated to GOD
