I stand before Your throne
and honor You
Today we continue sharing the first song on our latest CD, Before Your Throne. It is the title track entitled, I Stand Before Your Throne.
We come to the chorus of the song where the lyrics are the high point: "I stand before Your throne and honor You." The lyrics bring many images to mind of us standing before God, robed in the righteousness of Christ. I can only imagine that I won't be standing very long, but laying my crown down at His feet! The Word says that every knee will bow and every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord (Philippians 2:10-11).
Honor originates in our hearts and refers to the value we personally place on something or someone. When we honor God, we are showing the high regard we have for Him. We are reflecting His glory back as praise and worship. When we delight in the Lord, seek Him in everything we do, and make choices that reflect the place He has in our hearts, we bring Him the greatest honor.
We look forward to the day when we will stand before the throne of our Lord, giving Him glory and honor!
Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need. (Hebrews 4:16)
“Worthy are you, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things, and by your will they existed and were created.” (Revelation 4:11)
Lord God, one day we will stand before Your throne to give You all glory, honor and praise. Thank You for loving us so much by making the way for us to be able do this. Amen.
