Have you ever had someone say something you were thinking and intending to say just before you said it … Perhaps you’ve exclaimed, as have I in those situations, “You took the words right out of my mouth!”
Well today, I had that kind of experience during “coffee with the Lord”! I sat down with a cup of coffee and my Bible and prepared my heart with a brief prayer I often pray, “Lord, open my eyes that I may see wonderful things out of Your Law!” (Psalm 119.18) And then I prepared to worship… I opened my Bible and right there were the words I wanted and intended to use in worship… “Lord, You took the words right out of my mouth!”
Well here they are… I’ll share them with you… King David prayed them… Why don’t you use them to worship Him this morning? …
“Blessed are you, O LORD, forever and ever! Yours, O LORD, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the victory and the majesty, for all that is in the heavens and in the earth is Yours! Yours is the kingdom, O LORD, and You are exalted as head above all. Both riches and honor come from You, and You rule over all! In Your hand are power and might, and in Your hand it is to make great and to give strength to all! And now we thank You, our God, and praise Your glorious name! (From 1 Chronicles 29:10-13 ESV)
That’s not all that David had to say in worship and prayer in 1 Chronicles 29 (you should look it up and read it all for yourself)… But it was a good start for me today. And it was a good “prep” for Thanksgiving next week!
