Podcast #153: “King Of The World” by Natalie Grant

Praising Through Psalm 47

How often have I tried to squeeze God into the smallest of boxes? One way to take Him out in our own minds is to fixate on His greatness. Natalie Grant’s song “King Of The World” points us to Scripture where we can be reminded of God’s greatness.

This week I hope to lead you through exercises that will keep God’s position in perspective.

This Week’s Challenge

Head over to Psalm 47 and spend some time considering the greatness of the King of the world. Follow my lead and make a list of characteristics of God while you’re there. If you need some inspiration to make your own list I recommend starting in Job 38…God Himself lists out many of His qualities and characteristics. From your own personal study take your eyes off of application this week and continue to focus on the glory of God. Write your lists and then revisit them daily. Use the lists to inspire your holy moments with the Lord as you recount back to Him is greatness.
