Sing to the Lord A New Song

 "He determines the number of the stars and calls them each by name." Psalm 147:4

"He determines the number of the stars and calls them each by name." Psalm 147:4

     How great and glorious is our God! We have the privilege to come before the maker of the universe and lay our praises at His feet. Hebrews 4:14-16 says it this way: "So then, since we have a great High Priest who has entered heaven, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly to what we believe. This High Priest of ours understands our weaknesses, for he faced all of the same testings we do, yet he did not sin. So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive his mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it most."

     Knowing that our God is gracious and merciful when we come to his throne is so encouraging to me in worship. Through Jesus Christ our Lord, we have an opportunity to join with the angels and all of creation to proclaim that our Heavenly Father is worthy of all blessing and honor, all power and glory, forever and ever.

    A song that we will be doing in the next few weeks gives us a great chance to join our hearts and voices together and proclaim the greatness of our God. The song is "When the Stars Burn Down" by Jennie Lee Riddle. I've linked it here so you can listen for yourself. Or, you can listen to the Spanish version.
