Positive Possibilities
Is there no God in Israel?

Glory

9 Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name:

10 That at the name of Jesus every knee shall bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;

11 And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

Philippians 2:9-11

"What inspires you?'  I asked a friend this question in an email this morning as I sat wondering what to share today in this space.  I had just finished my devotional time in God's Word, but just wasn't feeling inspired to write anything about what I had just read.  (Another day, another bad king - remember, I'm in 1 Kings).  Afer I signed off on my email to her, I proceeded to get on with my day, popped in my new Selah CD "Bless the Broken Road" and became absorbed in the song "Glory" by Nichole Nordeman.   I was suddenly inspired by the beauty of the song and how it built up to a wonderful song of praise and hope for that one day when good wins over evil...finally.  Glory to His name.

Glory - by Nichole Nordeman

One day, eyes that are blind will see You clearly
One day all who deny will finally believe
One day hearts made of stone will break in pieces
One day chains, once unbroken, will fall down at Your feet.

So we wait
For that one day
Come quickly, we want to see Your...

Glory
Every knee falls down before Thee
Every tongue offers You praise, with every hand raised
Singing Glory
To You and unto You only
We'll sing Glory to Your name.

One day, voices that lie will all be silenced
One day all that's divided will be whole again
One day death will retreat, and wave its white flag
One day love will defeat the strongest enemy

So we wait
For that one day
Come quickly,we want to see Your...

Glory
Every knee falls down before Thee
Every tongue offers You praise, with every hand raised
Singing Glory
To You and unto You only
We'll sing Glory to Your name.

We know not the day or the hour, or the moments in between
But we know the end of the story...when we'll see Your...

Glory
Every knee falls down before Thee
Every tongue offers You praise, with every hand raised
Singing Glory
To You and unto You only
We'll sing Glory to Your name.
