K -Know that the Lord, he is God!
This Psalm exhorts all the earth to give thanks to The Lord. Some may find it difficult to do that in these testing times.
In Old Testament times people had to sacrifice a lamb to atone for their sins. Today we bring our lives as a living sacrifice because Jesus the lamb of God made the perfect sacrifice for us. He died so that we can live forever by repenting and trusting in His finished work on Calvary and His Resurrection from the dead.
Truly He deserves our sacrifice of praise, prayer and giving to His Kingdom so that others will hear the Good News.

- His faithfulness
- It continues through all generations
There is a higher throne
Than all this world has known,
Where faifhful ones from ev’ry tongue
Will one day come
Before the throne we’ll stand,
Made faultless through the Lamb
Believing hearts find promised grace,
Hear heaven’s voices sing
their thund’rous anthem rings,
Through em’rald courts and sapphire skies
Their praises rise
All glory, wisdom, pow’r
strength, thanks, and honor are
to God our King who reigns on high
And there we’ll find our home
Our life before the throne
We’ll honor him in perfect song
where we belong
He’ll wipe each tear - stained eye
as thirst and hunger die
The Lamb becomes our Shepherd - King
We’ll reign with him.
