Worship Wednesday: “The Lord Is My Salvation”

It has been a little over a month since I posted a Worship Wednesday song, and for that I am sorry. I was off for several weeks and getting ready for that was just crazy.

So, here we go!

Today’s Worship Wednesday song comes from Keith & Kristin Getty (modern-day hymn writers) entitled “The Lord Is My Salvation”. In the book of Psalm we read:

For God alone my soul waits in silence; from Him comes my salvation. He only is my rock and my salvation, my fortress; I shall not be greatly shaken.

Psalm 62:1-2

We must understand that without the grace of God, we are nothing more than sinful, depraved sinner destined for an eternity in hell.

BUT GOD! (I love these two words!!!!!!)

This song starts out with these words:

The grace of God has reached for me. And pulled me from the raging sea, and I am safe on this solid ground – The Lord is my salvation!

The song builds to the tag with the words:

Glory be to God the Father, glory be to God the Son, glory be to God the Spirit, the Lord is my salvation!

I hope you find this song encouraging today and it causes us to understand a little more clearly that without HIM we are nothing! He is our God, our Sustainer, our Rock, our Redeemer, our Savior, our Provider, our Healer – and HE is our SALVATION!

Worship Wednesday: “No Longer Slaves”

I love acapella music! There is nothing quite like the human voice and when it comes together like our song today – it is powerful!

My niece started her freshman year at Lee University in Cleveland, Tennessee just a few days ago and so I thought it would be a great opportunity to hear today’s Worship Wednesday song from one of their groups.

I hope you enjoy “No Longer Slaves” from The Voices of Lee!

Worship Wednesday: “Grace”

Worship Wednesdays Banner

Today’s Worship Wednesday song comes from a combination of two things: 1) I have been reading through a book entitled “Grace Is Greater” by Kyle Idleman and 2) I love just about any song that Laura Story sings.

Because of this combination, today’s Worship Wednesday song is “Grace” by Laura Story.

God’s grace is an amazing thing. We sing about it in the church. We read about it in the Bible. But it is not until we truly experience God’s grace that it becomes real. Kyle Idleman said this about experiencing grace:

God’s grace is compelling when explained but irresistible when experienced.

The chorus to this songs goes like this:

“I ask you how many times will you pick me up when I keep on letting you down. And each time I will fall short of your glory. How far will forgiveness abound? And you answer my child, ‘I love you’. And as long as your seeking my face you’ll walk in the power of My daily sufficient grace.”

Idleman goes on to say in his book that:

Our ability to appreciate grace is in direct correlation to the degree to which we acknowledge our need for it. The more I recognize the ugliness of my sin, the more I can appreciate the beauty of God’s grace”.

I hope and pray that we will truly experience the grace of God and that we will understand our deep need for a Savior!

Amazing Grace how sweet the sound, that saved a wretch like me! 

Worship Wednesday: “His Mercy Is More”

Today’s Worship Wednesday song comes from Matt Papa and is entitled “His Mercy Is More”.

I love the words to this song. Here is the first verse:

What love could remember no wrongs we have done
Omniscient, all knowing, he counts not their sum
Thrown into a sea without bottom or shore
Our sins they are many, his mercy is more

This song reminds me of the beautiful words found in Lamentations 3:22-23 which says,

The steadfast of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.

We can also look in the New Testament at Hebrews 8:12 where Paul reminds us of how merciful our God is towards us. it says,

For I will be merciful toward their iniquities, and I will remember their sins no more.

Let’s worship God today for his mercy toward us all!

Worship Wednesday – “Be Still And Know”

Today’s song is “Be Still And Know” by Kari Jobe. This song is a beautiful melody that pleads with us to slow down, take a deep breath and BE STILL before God.

That is extremely hard for most of us to do. Stop and be still. We all seem to be rushing from one place to another, trying to get as much done as possible, when what God wants us to do is to “be still and know that I am God”.

Psalm 46:10 says,

    “Be still, and know that I am God;
    I will be exalted among the nations,
    I will be exalted in the earth.”

When we are still before God, we begin to notice just how much we need Him and are dependent upon Him. We begin to see a loving Father, who is there to care for us and nurture us. We begin to see just how much grace, love and mercy he has given to each one of us – and we begin to worship!

I do not know the author of this quote but I believe it – “If the devil can’t make you bad, he’ll make your busy”.

I am praying today that we all will stop – take a deep breath – and be still and know that HE is God and worship HIM today!

Worship Wednesdays – “God Of The Empty Grave”

Today’s “Worship Wednesday” song is entitled “God Of The Empty Grace” and is sung by the New Legacy Project. This group of guys have been singing together for several years under the name The Blackwood Legacy but have recently changed their name.

Matthew 28:5 says,

But the angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you seek Jesus who was crucified. He is not here, for he has risen, and he said. Come, see the place where he lay.”

I do not worship a dead Savior! I worship a God who conquered death, hell & the grave.

While on the road, The New Legacy Project did a concert in a beautiful sanctuary. They took advantage of the surroundings and the acoustics and performed an unplugged version of the song “God Of The Empty Grave”.

I hope you enjoy!
