Song Sunday 🎶🎷

My heart can’t contain the weight of Your name! 💙

Looking unto Jesus the Author and Finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.

Hebrews 12:2

Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.

Hebrews 4:16

At His feet is where we belong, praising, praying and worshipping Him while we still have breath. At His feet is where we should feel the happiest to dwell.

Here at Your feet, I can
See the unseen, truly
One look at You and I’m undone

His love is perfect and embraces us like a warm, soft, squishy blanket.

Grace upon grace, all my
Fear falls away, only
Your perfect love for me remains

We should never be afraid to approach the glorious Throne Room!

I run to the throne room
Before You the only One
Before You I’m overcome

For in the Throne Room, we have a mighty Counselor, a wonderful High Priest by the name of Jesus Christ to plead on our behalf. Angels rejoice when the lost and broken return home and we can join in with them to sing of God’s magnificent holiness. 

And I fall on my face
With angels and saints 

My heart can’t contain the weight of His Name for He’s so good to me that all I can do is sing His praises and share His sweet mercies. 

My heart can’t contain
The weight of Your name

Angels sing of His holiness continuously without getting weary.  HOLY ARE YOU, LORD! HOLY ARE YOU ETERNALLY!!

And all I can say is
Holy, holy, holy are You

I’m not a fan of Kim or Jesus Culture for that matter, but this song is special to me. It is powerful because it is God-centered and not generic for it directly references THE Creator. This is how you honor God. This is how you praise and worship Him!

I also love both versions of the music video. In the lyric video, God is revealed in the landscapes.  

In the official music video, people of different ages and backgrounds run to God.

There is no HIGHER place than heaven and God’s throne is a place of majesty (Hebrews 12:2), a place of grace (Hebrews 4:16), a place of holiness (Psalm 47:8), a place of justice (Psalm 89:14), a place of power (2 Chronicles 18:18), a place of praise (Revelation 14:3) and a place of eternity (Revelation 22:1). And the day is coming when creation will bow to the majesty that is God’s throne (Philippians 2:9-11) for HE ALONE IS WORTHY (Revelation 4:10-11).

In His throne room regardless of who you are, regardless of age, regardless of what you’re going through, you experience His love, grace, mercy, protection, and forgiveness, so come to Him today AS YOU ARE and cry Abba Father!

God is merciful and truthful.

Scripture in focus: All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out. John 6:37

This is a very powerful and beautiful promise. With Jesus, we have eternal security. When He came down from heaven, He came to do the Father’s will (John 6:38). The Father sent His Son to die for our wicked ways so the Father can purchase us and entrust us in the care and responsibility of His precious Son (John 6:39). We are His and no one can make a claim of ownership for He has marked us as His own after we were purchased with the blood of the Son and the Holy Spirit sealed the deal.

Some believers are fearful of backsliding, but fear not for:

I will heal their backsliding, I will love them freely: for mine anger is turned away from him.

Hosea 14:4 & Jeremiah 3:22

What if we sin?

And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous

1 John 2:1

Praise God! He is so merciful towards us that there is no point in trying to make up excuses to justify turning away from Him or not being ready to accept Him fully as Lord and Savior. His ways are not ours and we’re inclined to turn away for a little while, but even in temptation, we can call on the Lord for aid.

God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it.

1 Corinthians 10:13 see also 2 Thessalonians 3:3

There is no excuse for not wanting to come to our Saviour and find the rest we’ve been craving in His loving arms. He will receive you and never cast you aside. If you backslide, He’ll heal you. If you sin, He’ll make intercession to the Father for you. If we fall into temptation, He’ll provide a way for you to escape and make you white as snow. How can one not want this beautiful relationship with the Creator of the Universe?
