Yesterday was one of the most humbling, intimate times of corporate church worship that I’ve ever experienced. From the first down beat to the final lyric, Sunday’s services at Journey Church were saturated with God’s presence as He alone was exalted in word and song. Pastor Jimmy brought a timeless, powerful message on God’s vision for our lives. Simply put – His vision for us is that we would become like Jesus!
During the time of response in worship, we sang a new song: You Are Good by Gateway Worship. Its been around for a little while but this was first time our church sang it together as one. A simple song, it declares God’s goodness above and beyond everything. In preparing for the song, God directed me to a beautiful passage in Psalms that vividly describes the magnitude of His love and faithfulness.
5Your lovingkindness, O LORD, extends to the heavens,
Your faithfulness reaches to the skies.
6Your righteousness is like the mountains of God;
Your judgments are like a great deep
O LORD, You preserve man and beast.
7How precious is Your lovingkindness, O God!
And the children of men take refuge in the shadow of Your wings.
8They drink their fill of the abundance of Your house;
And You give them to drink of the river of Your delights.
9For with You is the fountain of life;
In Your light we see light.
His love exceeds the heavens. His righteousness is strong as mighty mountains. His judgments stretch beyond the deep. How wonderful You are, o God! No matter my circumstance, Your strength is ever-ready, always prevailing. You are so good. Your mercy is forever!
