Enthroned Ps 22 #26

Back in the day I wrote a song called “A New Song”, the first line of the chorus is based on this scripture from Psalm 22:3.

But you are holy, you who inhabit the praises of Israel. (World English Bible)

Yet You are holy. The praises Israel gives You are Your throne. (New Life Version)

But You are holy, O You Who dwell in [the holy place where] the praises of Israel [are offered]. (Amplified)

When we gather together to offer wholehearted-in-spirit-and-truth worship to God, he does not remain unmoved and far off. No, there is an aspect of His presence that is manifest in the midst of His people praising him.

I often heard my friend James Goll (The Lost Art of Pure Worship) explain it this way:

“God has an address where He lives,  and it’s spelled P.R.A.I.S.E.”

And I love how Pastor Steve Berger expresses it:

Quit trying to find God, and start worshiping Him and He will find you. “God Dwells In The Midst of Our Praise”

When we worship God, we don’t have to wonder where He is, He is present in your praise.

He will find you. Just worship Him!

A New Song [Lyrics]

Sing to the Lord (Sing to the Lord )

A new song (a new song)

Sing to the Lord (Sing to the Lord )

A new song (a new song)

For the Lord indwells the praise of his people

and the Lord inhabits the song of his praise

and the eyes of God search the world over

for those who worship Him, in spirit and truth

We worship you!

About Season Of Light

I am writing a devotional series called “Season of Light” (#SeasonOfLife) during the beginning of 2016, focusing on the 40 day season of Epiphany (from January 6 – February 10). We’ll explore the major biblical themes of the beginning of Jesus ministry, and I’ll comment as the Holy Spirit inspires. This is for the purpose of growing in our relationship with the Lord. My desire – my hope and prayer for you – is that your heart may expand and your spirit grow brighter as we seek to be filled with the knowledge and presence of God. So, I invite you to join me on the “Season of Light” journey!

Often I’ll be inspired by a scripture from the Daily Audio Bible readings and use that as a writing prompt. Here’s the DAB readings for January 25: Exodus 2:11-3:22; Matthew 17:10-27; Psalms 22:1-18; Proverbs 5:7-14

Our church is also on a reading plan of four chapters per day, starting in the New Testament. Today is Luke 21-24.
