Belated Easter Post

It’s Easter week still (I hope…I’m late in posting) but I want to thank God for how far He has brought me and mine.

Through all of life’s travails and triumphs, the ups, the down, through the fire and through the rain, it can only be you, Lord.
In celebration of this, let’s share the spoken word by Isaac Wimberley which is featured in Karie Jobe’s (gospel artist and worship leader) album ‘Majestic’ and the song ‘Forever’. 

This song expresses my worship and thanks for all He’s done on the Cross. I hope this blesses someone as you give it a listen. 

Happy Easter y’all!

The Word by Isaac Wimberley

If there are words for Him then I don’t have them
You see my brain has not yet reached a point where it could form a thought
That could adequately describe the greatness of my God
And my lungs have not yet developed the ability to release a breath with enough agility
To breathe out the greatness of His love
And my voice is so inhibited, restrained by human limits
That it’s hard to even send a praise up;

If there are words for Him then I don’t have them

My God
His Grace is remarkable, Mercies are innumerable, Strength is impenetrable
He is honorable, accountable and favorable
Unsearchable yet knowable
Indefinable yet approachable
Indescribable yet personal
He is beyond comprehension, further than imagination
Constant through generations, King of every nation

But

If there are words for Him then I don’t have them

You see my words are few
And to try and capture the one true God using my vocabulary will never do
But I use my words as an expression
An expression of worship to a Saviour
A Saviour who is both worthy and deserving of my praise
So I use words
My heart extols the Lord, Blesses His name forever
He has won my heart, captured my mind and has bound them together
He has defeated me in my rebellion, conquered me in my sin
He has welcomed me into His presence, completely invited me in
He has made Himself the object of my sight, flooding me with mercies in the morning
Drowning me with grace in the night

But

If there are words for Him then I don’t have them

But what I do have…is Good News
For my God knew that man-made words would never do
For words are just tools that we use to point to the Truth
So He sent His Son Jesus as THE WORD, Living proof
He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation
For by Him all things were created, giving nothingness formation
And by His word, He sustains, in the power of His name
For He is before all things and over all things He reigns
HOLY IS HIS NAME!!

Praise Him for His life, the way He persevered in strife
The humble Son of God becoming the perfect sacrifice
Praise Him for His death, that He willingly stood in our place
That He lovingly endured the grave, that He battled our enemy

And on the third day rose in victory
Praise Him because He rose!!
Hallelujah He rose!!
He is everything that was promised

Praise Him as the risen King, lift your voice and sing
For one day He will return for us and we will finally be united with our Saviour for eternity
So it’s not just words that I proclaim for my words point to the WORD and the WORD has a name

Hope has a name
Joy has a name
Peace has a name
Love has a name

And that name is Jesus Christ
Praise his name forever
