Session 5

King of Kings

Read: Ephesians 3:20, Psalm 96:1-4, 1 Chronicles 10:4-5

We talk to ourselves more than we talk to anyone else. And our thoughts have a lot of power to restrain or release the work of God in our life.

“King of Kings” is a song about how God is able and willing to give us immeasurably more blessing according to His power that is at work in us (Ephesians 3:20). Claiming this promise starts by simply acknowledging God and His power in our thoughts.

Satan knows the power of our thoughts, so the place he attacks early and most often is our mind: what we think about ourselves, our past, our failures, our strengths, our victories; even what we think of God.

“King of Kings” was written to put our focus on God and what He has for us every day. That’s really powerful and something we can take for granted in worship. The more we turn our thoughts to how good God has been to us and how much more He wants to do in the future, the harder it is for the enemy to influence our thoughts.

A line in the first verse of the song says, “Mercy wakes with the sunrise.” What would happen if we made an effort to wake up every morning and have the thought, “God, thank you for another day of life.”?

That commitment would literally change the course of every day. By our acknowledging God’s sovereignty over us first, it’s a little harder for the enemy to give us thoughts like, “You’re not good enough.” We are good enough because the God of the universe woke us up on purpose, with purpose. See the difference?

It sounds so simple, but that’s because following Jesus is supposed to be simple! The act of shifting our thoughts to be thankful can be the difference between immeasurably more and measurably less blessing.

Today, we can begin to worship in wonder the one who is able to do more than we have dreamed!
