My Confident Hope

When I Think About the Lord

Yesterday morning we had an incredible time of worship. Over the past few months, it has been a challenge for us to get the congregation to engage in worship and not just be spectators. I have noticed that during our corporate fast that people are more focused on God and on the act of worship. The whole atmosphere really changed when we began to sing a song by Hillsong called ‘When I Think About the Lord” This is an incredible song. As I sang, I began to think about the all the things that He has done for me. The chorus opens up with “It makes me wanna shout,  Hallelujah, thank you Jesus, Lord your worthy of all the glory and all the honor and all the praise.” He is the only one that is worthy of all the glory, honor and praise. We then went back to the chorus and sang it accapella. Our little 15 member choir sounded like a 100 member choir at that point. Each person was singing with all their heart, soul, and might to the Lord. It wasn’t about performance, it was a true, genuine awe of God and what He has done in all of our lives.  I think if we all stop and think more about the Lord has done for us, we will worship Him out of a heart of thankfulness and not out of obligation.

  3. Stopping long enough to ask ourselves WHO we’re worshipping? yeah… I think that’ll do the trick!
    hmmm… I might have to use that in church sometime soon, as a prompt to worship.
    Thanks!
