That's My King

I had a sweet conversation tonight with a dear friend who loves orphans and Jesus (doesn't get much better than that in my opinion!) about Africa.  After I hung up the phone I was just in awe of how God moves in our hearts and stirs us to love people we've never even laid eyes on.  She's getting ready to go to Africa for the first time and she said that she can't imagine what it will be like to actually see these people she feels so passionately about but has never met.  Is it possible to love them any more than she already does?  And that made me think about God's love...His nature...His very character.  Who HE IS at His He so beautifully weaves the love He has for us into our hearts and makes it spill out for other people. 

God's been doing so much in my heart and life over these past months and tonight I find myself just standing in awe of Him.  Only God can take fickle, selfish human hearts and turn them towards Him and the things and people He cares about.  So, tonight I just want to worship Him and soak up WHO He is. I wish I was as eloquent as Dr. S.M. Lockridge at describing my King, but I'm not so sit back, close your eyes and breathe in the truth of Who we love, serve and worship with our lives.  (And if you don't feel like listening you can read the words below).

The Bible says my King is the King of Righteousness....He's the King of the Ages.....He's the King of Heaven....He's the King of Glory....He's the King of kings, and He's the Lord of lords. That's my King.

David said, "The Heavens declare the glory of God and the firmament shows His handiwork. My King is a sovereign King. No means of measure can define His limitless love. No far seeing telescope can bring into visibility the coastline of His shoreless supply. No barrier can hinder Him from pouring out His blessings. He's enduringly strong....He's entirely sincere....He's eternally steadfast....He's immortally graceful....He's imperially powerful....He's impartially merciful.......

He's the only one qualified to be an all sufficient Saviour...

He supplies strength for the weak....He's available for the tempted and the tried....He sympathizes and He saves....He strengthens and sustains....He guards and He guides....He heals the sick....He cleanses lepers....He forgives sinners....He discharges debtors....He delivers captives....He defends the feeble....He blesses the young....He serves the unfortunate....He regards the aged....He rewards the diligent....and He beautifies the meek...

His promise is sure....His light is matchless....His goodness is limitless....His mercy is everlasting....His love never changes....His word is enough....His grace is sufficient....His reign is righteous....and His yoke is easy, and his burden is light.  He's indescribable....

He's irresistible.
That's my King.


  1. Awesome! Because He is. My fav part was "Death couldn't handle him. The grave couldn't hold him." Truth. Hallelujah!!

  2. I dont know how to do it but could I link to this post???? You can jump over to my blog and read my post yesterday. How could I have wondered if he knew my heart? How could I have been so afraid to hope? He has been orchestrating something so much bigger than what I ever imagined. Just the glimpses of it rock me to the core.

  3. I get chills every time I hear this. Thank you. I love you and OUR KING.

  4. I shared it today. thank you for letting me share with my 4 readers! ha ha! I will never forget the feeling in my spirit when I read that version of Matt. 25. It took a whole afternoon to find you again because it had been haunting me. (My son taught me that day how you could click "history".) thank you again!
