God You Reign

It's my turn to lead our devotion in our staff meeting today, so I thought I'd share it with you. It's short and simple, but something I need to be reminded of.

"God Your Reign" by Lincoln Brewster

You paint the night
You count the stars and You call them by name
The skies proclaim, God You reign
Your glory shines
You teach the sun when to bring a new day
Creations sings, God You reign

God You reign
God You reign
Forever and ever
God You reign

You part the seas
You move the mountains with the words that You say
My song remains, God You reign
You hold my life
You know my heart and You call me by name
I live to say, God You reign

I appreciate the last last three lines of the song above the most. It's easy for me, as a God follower, to proclaim that God reigns over this world and creation and nations, etc. It's often hard for me to proclaim that He reigns over me. My life would be so much easier if He would just stick to reigning over all that other stuff and let me do my own thing for the most part. But, that's not the way He created me to live.

Psalm 47:8
God reigns over the nations; God is seated on his holy throne.

Psalm 146:10
The LORD reigns forever, your God, O Zion, for all generations. Praise the LORD.

Isaiah 52:7
How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of those who bring good news, who proclaim peace, who bring good tidings, who proclaim salvation, who say to Zion, "Your God reigns!"
