As you go to bed on Saturdays and come to worship on Sundays, if you're anything like me, your mind is often full of the week or the morning behind you..., "I wonder why that meeting went that way? I wish my car didn't make that weird noise. I shouldn't have said that to my daughter, stayed up late watching tv or spent all that time on my pet project.", etc. Or, it's full of the week ahead..., "I wonder what's for lunch. I hope that doctor's appointment goes well. This week, I'm going to get up on time, read my bible, pray, and eat right every day. That person better come through on what they promised.", etc.
Some of those thoughts are less than helpful, some pretty benign, and some are even good thoughts to have. But none of them are what we should be dwelling on as we prepare to worship the God of Heaven with his people. The thoughts that should be filling are minds are these:
" There is none like you, O Lord;
you are great, and your name is great in might.
Who would not fear you, O King of the nations?
For this is your due;
for among all the wise ones of the nations
and in all their kingdoms
there is none like you." - Jeremiah 10:6-7
"Yours, O Lord, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the victory and the majesty, for all that is in the heavens and in the earth is yours. Yours is the kingdom, O Lord, and you are exalted as head above all. Both riches and honor come from you, and you rule over all. In your hand are power and might, and in your hand it is to make great and to give strength to all. And now we thank you, our God, and praise your glorious name. " - I Corinthians 29:11-13
Let's come together this Sunday having trained our minds to focus on the One to whom belongs all the greatness, power, glory, victory and majesty...
Here are the songs we'll be singing that will help us to direct our thoughts and hearts to the King of Kings on his glorious throne.
