Sunday ~ a divinely ordained pause to worship and praise Him. And today we give special thanks for how He has heard our prayers!!! Halle Yahweh! (Hallelujah – Praise God!)
Note: I have always loved music and worship music, but have not always understood worship. For many years it was just a word used to describe church service or a type of music. But that changed radically in Feb. 2004 when friends prayed over me to start hearing (thus composing) new songs from heaven. (Since their prayers I have composed over 350 worship songs and recorded more than 60.) Then in Feb. 2005 the Lord gave me a vision which implied worship changes things. I needed to understand what the vision meant. I needed to understand His way. After months spent in Scripture studying everything I could find about worship, it became clear that indeed God promises to respond to our worship with a release of His power, which changes things. Thus worship is not a song, service, drum beat or lifting of hands (though all of these things with a worshipful mindset can be worship). Worship is an attitude of heart which adores God in the majesty and sovereignty of who He is in our lives at all times. Worship is the ultimate expression of our trust in Him, because we choose to spend precious time contemplating the awesome wonder of all He is, without the need to ask Him for anything. It expresses to God we can abandon ourselves to worship Him because we trust He already has everything else handled – that which we can see and which we can’t.
Worship is not a Sunday activity, but a lifestyle. However, Sunday is the traditional day within most Christian circles to take a pause from our work which helps refresh us and honors God as our ultimate provider and protector from whom all good things come. Worship honors Him and strengthens us in Him.
On Sundays, to facilitate this “pause” before God, NUGGETS OF GOD’S WISDOM features Scripture, song lyrics and prayer to assist in laying down everything that burdens us and constrains the mind, to enter into blissful, restorative worship of the only One who can which writes His promises on our hearts. ~ Elizabeth
PSALM 95 (Amplified)
1 O come, let us sing to the Lord; let us make a joyful noise to the Rock of our salvation!
2 Let us come before His presence with thanksgiving; let us make a joyful noise to Him with songs of praise!
3 For the Lord is a great God, and a great King above all gods.
4 In His hand are the deep places of the earth; the heights and strength of the hills are His also.
5 The sea is His, for He made it; and His hands formed the dry land.
6 O come, let us worship and bow down, let us kneel before the Lord our Maker [in reverent praise and supplication].
7 For He is our God and we are the people of His pasture and the sheep of His hand. Today, if you will hear His voice, [Heb. 3:7-11.]
8 Harden not your hearts…
LION AND LAMB song & lyrics by Elizabeth Burgard Fulgaro (c) 2009
1) Lamb of God, You have won.
Lion of Judah, You reign.
What You have said, You have done.
Lion of Judah, Lion of Judah
Lamb of God, Lamb of God
King of heaven, our Redeemer
You reign, You reign.
2) Lion of Judah on the throne,
Lamb of God, You were slain
Every battle, You have won.
Lord, we bow once again and remain in awe of You. We are so thankful. Lord God, what looked like the worst has been a difficult storm, but You have spared us the wide-spread devastation which could have been.
You are God; there is no other. You are Lord; we bow to You. You alone can do all things. All worship, praise and honor belong to You. We pledge our allegiance, lives and hearts to You. We rejoice.
