You reign O Lord, You reign.
We live in your kingdom O Lord. To you all glory and honor belong. You have been exalted and you are head above all. You are over all, in all, breathing life into all. Breathing life into us. All we have comes from your hand Lord. Riches and honor come from you. All we fill our hands with to bring you is because you have given first to us. Without you, we would have nothing.
You reign over all. You reign over every circumstance and happenstance of life. You reign over the plans we meticulously make. You reign and everything is visible to you. Not a thing happens but you have full knowledge of it beforehand. Nothing takes you by surprise or catches you off guard.
You reign over our lives. You have chosen to walk with us. You hold out your hand to us and you are pleased when we place our hand in yours and walk with you. In your hand is power and might, in your hand we find healing, friendship, protection and covering from the storm.
Your mighty right hand is full of power and might. We are holding onto that hand. You said we are one. You infuse your power and might into us. We stand strong in the storm. In the calm, we look to you. You are our song in the night and hear our praises in the sunlight.
You lift us up. You carry us upon your shoulders and as your beloved we are happy and content to be carried there all the day.
You reign. Have your way in our lives. We know your plans for us are good. We know that our life is a combination of experiences, added one at a time at just the right time. We know you have designed and heated the fire just for us. You are looking for a perfect bride, one without spot or wrinkle and so Lord God, we yield to the fire. We hold onto your hand all the daylong. You have not let go of our hand as we are in our refining crucible. Your hand is shaping us even now.
You are bringing forth fruit that will last for eternity. Without the fire, there is no fruit.
I am thankful for the fire, for the fruit that brings Him glory.
Listening for His heart,
