    Day 17: Awake My Soul

    March 13, 2020
                Today continue to call out to God asking for His mercy to save us from our enemies. As you call out to God, worship the Lord in the splendour of His holiness. 1 Chronicles 16:9 “Sing to him, sing praise to him; tell of all his wonderful acts. 10 Glory in his holy name; let the hearts of those who seek the LORD rejoice. 11 Look to the LORD and his strength; seek his face always. 12 Remember the wonders he has done, his miracles, and the judgments he pronounced, 13 you his servants, the descendants of Israel, his chosen ones, the children of Jacob. 14 He is the LORD our God; his judgments are in all the earth. 15 He remembers his covenant forever, the promise he made, for a thousand generations, 16 the covenant he made with Abraham, the oath he swore to Isaac. 17 He confirmed it to Jacob as a decree, to Israel as an everlasting covenant: 18 “To you I will give the land of Canaan as the portion you will inherit.” 19 When they were but few in number, few indeed, and strangers in it, 20 they wandered from nation to nation, from one kingdom to another. 21 He allowed no one to oppress them; for their sake he rebuked kings: 22 “Do not touch my anointed ones; do my prophets no harm.” 23 Sing to the LORD, all the earth; proclaim his salvation day after day. 24 Declare his glory among the nations, his marvellous deeds among all peoples. 25 For great is the LORD and most worthy of praise; he is to be feared above all gods. 26 For all the gods of the nations are idols, but the LORD made the heavens. 27 Splendour and majesty are before him; strength and joy are in his dwelling place. 28 Ascribe to the LORD, all you families of nations, ascribe to the LORD glory and strength. 29 Ascribe to the LORD the glory due his name; bring an offering and come before him. Worship the LORD in the splendour of his holiness. 30 Tremble before him, all the earth! The world is firmly established; it cannot be moved. 31 Let the heavens rejoice, let the earth be glad; let them say among the nations, “The LORD reigns! 34 Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever. 35 Cry out, “Save us, God our Saviour; gather us and deliver us from the nations, that we may give thanks to your holy name, and glory in your praise.” 36 Praise be to the LORD, the God of Israel, from everlasting to everlasting. Then all the people said “Amen” and “Praise the LORD.”
     
    There is a song called "Awake My Soul" by Hillsong
    The lyrics go like this (you can buy the song on itunes)

    "There is a sound I love to hear, 
    It's the sound of the Savior's robe
    As He walks into the room where people pray
    Where we hear praises He hears faith

    There is a sound I love to hear, 
    It's the sound of the Savior's robe
    As He walks into the room where people pray
    Where we hear worship He hears faith

    Awake my soul and sing
    Sing His praise aloud
    Sing His praise aloud
     
    There is a sound that changes things
    The sound of His people on their knees
    Oh wake up you slumbering
    It's time to worship Him

    Awake my soul and sing
    Sing His praise aloud
    Sing His praise aloud
     
    And when He moves and when we pray
    Where stood a wall now stands a way
    Where every promise is amen
    And when He moves make no mistake
    The bowels of hell begin to shake
    All hail the Lord all hail the King

    Hey oh
    Oh let the King of glory enter in
    Hey oh
    Fall down on your knees and worship Him
    Hey oh
    Let His praise rise up don't hold it in

    Awake my soul and sing
    Sing His praise aloud
    Sing His praise aloud
     
    Psalm 57:1 “Have mercy on me, my God, have mercy on me, for in you I take refuge. I will take refuge in the shadow of your wings until the disaster has passed. 2 I cry out to God Most High, to God, who vindicates me. 3 He sends from heaven and saves me, rebuking those who hotly pursue me—God sends forth his love and his faithfulness. 4 I am in the midst of lions; I am forced to dwell among ravenous beasts— men whose teeth are spears and arrows, whose tongues are sharp swords. 5 Be exalted, O God, above the heavens; let your glory be over all the earth. 6 They spread a net for my feet— I was bowed down in distress. They dug a pit in my path— but they have fallen into it themselves. 7 My heart, O God, is steadfast, my heart is steadfast; I will sing and make music. 8 Awake, my soul! Awake, harp and lyre! I will awaken the dawn. 9 I will praise you, Lord, among the nations; I will sing of you among the peoples. 10 For great is your love, reaching to the heavens; your faithfulness reaches to the skies. 11 Be exalted, O God, above the heavens; let your glory be over all the earth.”
