Thankful Thursday

Join Lisa at Grace Alone for Thankful Thursday.

This morning in my quiet time, I was reading, Psalm 132, especially verse 7, "Let us go to His dwelling place; let us worship at His footstool". In his daily devotional for today, Dr. David Jeremiah wrote: "Worship is recognizing God’s greatness and glory, and, in response, expressing our pleasure and praise. It’s not about us, how we feel, or the kind of music we enjoy. It’s about the One who is the same yesterday, today, and forever. It’s about who He is and what He has done."

I was reminded that worship is the pouring out of my love, praise and thankfulness of God's greatness and His glory. I am very thankful that He is King of kings and Lord of lords, and that I may worship Him anytime, anywhere.

These words to a song by Twila Paris came to mind, and it is my worship to Him this morning. May He be glorified in our hearts today.

We Will Glorify

We will glorify the King of kings
We will glorify the Lamb
We will glorify the Lord of lords
Who is the great I AM

Lord Jehovah reigns in majesty
We will bow before His throne
We will worship Him in righteousness
We will worship Him alone

He is Lord of heaven, Lord of earth
He is Lord of all who live
He is Lord above the universe
All praise to Him we give

Hallelujah to the King of kings
Hallelujah to the Lamb
Hallelujah to the Lord of Lords
Who is the great I AM
