I was driving into work this morning and heard the song “O Praise The Name (Anástasis)” by Hillsong on the radio and felt God’s peace and it was great and very much needed. Its been and incredibly busy week, one where I felt like I was just running.
And then I started thinking why can’t I bring that peace everywhere I go and into everything I do and feel God’s peace every day and in every moment. But in order to feel that we have to worship in all we do all day long. Its so easy to just grind out the day and get caught in the everyday happenings of daily life and attempt to run on our own strength.
As a husband and father and son, most of the time I feel like I carry the burdens and the weight of my world, but in reality Jesus is where my strength comes from. Each morning I get up and spend tie in prayer asking for God’s strength, grace and mercies for the day and thanking Him for the previous day’s strength, mercies and grace.
1 Ascribe to the Lord, you heavenly beings,
ascribe to the Lord glory and strength.
2 Ascribe to the Lord the glory due his name;
worship the Lord in the splendor of his holiness.
3 The voice of the Lord is over the waters;
the God of glory thunders,
the Lord thunders over the mighty waters.
4 The voice of the Lord is powerful;
the voice of the Lord is majestic.
5 The voice of the Lord breaks the cedars;
the Lord breaks in pieces the cedars of Lebanon.
6 He makes Lebanon leap like a calf,
Sirion like a young wild ox.
7 The voice of the Lord strikes
with flashes of lightning.
8 The voice of the Lord shakes the desert;
the Lord shakes the Desert of Kadesh.
9 The voice of the Lord twists the oaks
and strips the forests bare.
And in his temple all cry, “Glory!”
10 The Lord sits enthroned over the flood;
the Lord is enthroned as King forever.
11 The Lord gives strength to his people;
the Lord blesses his people with peace.
Praise His name and lift His name high!!
