The song "This is Amazing Grace" by Phil Wickham has always been a favourite of mine. I sing it often in my travels to different churches to lead worship. I love that it reminds us that God is the King of the Universe "who shakes the whole Earth with holy thunder" and "rules the nations with truth and justice." Yet it also reminds us that God is a loving Father "who makes the orphan a son and daughter."
This latest devotional comes in video form as I discuss some verses that highlight God's holiness AND His father heart. Click on the video below to watch.
God is King and He is a loving father. Let's continue getting to know Him better. I heard someone say that everything we do and say - all the decisions we make - flow out of what we believe about God and ourselves. Let's make sure our decisions are based in the Truth.
If there is an aspect of God's character that you are struggling to understand, ask God to reveal Himself to you and keep a journal of how He answers. There will always be more to learn about our heavenly Father!
Here is my version of this wonderfully written song:
THIS IS AMAZING GRACE
By Phil Wickham
Who breaks the power of sin and darkness Whose love is mighty and so much stronger The King of Glory, the King above all kings
Who shakes the whole earth with holy thunder And leaves us breathless in awe and wonder The King of Glory, the King above all kings
This is amazing grace This is unfailing love That You would take my place That You would bear my cross You lay down Your life That I would be set free Oh, Jesus, I sing for All that You've done for me
Who brings our chaos back into order Who makes the orphan a son and daughter The King of Glory, the King of Glory
Who rules the nations with truth and justice Shines like the sun in all of its brilliance The King of Glory, the King above all kings
Worthy is the Lamb who was slain Worthy is the King who conquered the grave Worthy is the Lamb who was slain Worthy is the King who conquered the grave Worthy is the Lamb who was slain Worthy is the King who conquered the grave Worthy is the Lamb who was slain Worthy, worthy, worthy
