Songs for Sunday – 6/14/2020

There has been a verse on my mind this week – Nahum 1:7:

The Lord is good,
a stronghold in the day of trouble;
He knows those who take refuge in Him.

That verse is comforting.

First, it is comforting because it reminds us of the goodness of God. He is good whether times are good or not. He is good whether we feel it or not. He is righteous and holy and something completely different than everything we have to offer.

Second, it is comforting because – when everything is not good with us – He is still God. He is a stronghold, or a fortress. We can turn to Him in our times of deepest need. His care and love are unparalleled.

And, finally, it is comforting because, while He is God and is our fortress, He is personally involved with His children. He knows us. I do not mean that He knows who we are or that we are casual acquaintances. He knows those who take refuge in Him. He knows those who put their trust, faith, and belief in Him alone.

And that’s good news because we need to be known. It’s good news because – no matter what is going on in your life – we have have someone to turn to who can handle whatever it is. We have the privilege of getting to seek out the Most High and Him respond knowingly with love and care for us.

These verses were on my heart this week as the worship set came together:

  • Nahum 1:7 – see above
  • Psalm 95:1-7a – Oh, come, let us sing to the Lord; let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation! Let us come into His presence with thanksgiving; let us make a joyful noise to Him with songs of praise! For the Lord is a great God, and a great King above all gods. In His hand are the depths of the earth; the heights of the mountain are His also. The sea is His, for He made it, and His hands formed the dry land. Oh come, let us worship and bow down; let us kneel before the Lord, our Maker! For He is our God, and we are the people of His pasture, and the sheep of His hand.
  • Colossians 2:13-14 – And you, who were dead in your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, God made alive together with Him, having forgiven us all our trespasses, by cancelling the record of debt that stood against us with its legal demands. This He set aside, nailing it to the cross.

And that’s what we’re singing about this week! Our great God is good and cares for us. He has made a way for us and wants us to trust in Him. He has paid the price for us and wants us to lay our burdens at His feet and trust in Him as our refuge and our salvation!

Here are our songs:
