Taking It Deeper

Lyrics

Sing it out, shout it loud  
Cover all the earth  
Let the sound of the saints  
Everywhere be heard  
Praise the God who has come  
To cure every broken heart.  
 
He is lord over all  
His reign will never end  
Through the fire and the flood  
He draws his children in  
He's the light of the world  
Brighter than the brightest star.
 
Chorus:
The god of brilliant lights  
Is shining down over us  
Breaking through the darkness  
Covering all the earth  
Ohhh, his love is like an ocean  
Ohhh, forever overflowing  
The god of brilliant lights is shining over us  
 
Sinners come to the cross  
And lay your troubles down  
At the feet of the one whose mercy will abound  
He's not afraid of our filth  
He will never turn away  
 
Chorus:
The god of brilliant lights  
Is shining down over us  
Breaking through the darkness  
Covering all the earth  
Ohhh, his love is like an ocean  
Ohhh, forever overflowing  
The god of brilliant lights is shining over us.
 
Is shining over us  
Like the morning rises  
God your light is shining  
Shining over us  
Is shining over us  
Like the morning rises  
God your light is shining  
Over us  
 
[Chorus:]
The god of brilliant lights is shining over us  
He's shining over us

TID-bits

  • I can never find a flashlight in my house because my kids like to play with them.   They always go missing.
  • It was the same when I was a kid, I loved playing with flashlights. I remember having one in my room and shining it down the hall into the kitchen.
  • It would always make my mom stop and look.
  • Is there something that God is doing to shine light into your life?   Are you paying attention or just playing around?

---------------------------------

  • Here’s a scripture you can use for your 9 to 5.   It’s Jesus speaking in John 9:5
  •  “While I am in the world, I am the light of the world.”
  • During your waking working hours remember to shine His light to others you meet.
  • It’s appealing, it’s comforting, it’s warm, and we can pray with you if you need a little help seeing His light.

---------------------------------

  • Businesses use lights to compete for your attention.   You’ve seen the grand openings with searchlights piercing the night sky for miles.   The stores with strobe lights in the window.   Neon arrows pointing to the drive thru.
  • They make us turn our heads.
  • You know where that idea originated?
  • God.
  • Have you spent a part of your day turning your head toward the light that started it all?

---------------------------------

  • Einstein proved that gravity bends light.
  • So if the gravity of your situation is pulling you down today.
  • Let the light of God bend toward you.   Look toward Him.   Talk to Him.   Let Him lighten your burden.

    Scripture References

    Isaiah 42:6-7

    “I, the Lord, have called you in righteousness; I will take hold of your hand. I will keep you and will make you to be a covenant for the people and a light for the Gentiles,

    to open eyes that are blind, to free captives from prison and to release from the dungeon those who sit in darkness.

    ---------------------------------

    John 3:19

    This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but men loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil.

    ---------------------------------

    Micah 7:9

    Because I have sinned against him, I will bear the Lord’s wrath, until he pleads my case and establishes my right. He will bring me out into the light; I will see his righteousness.

    Your Own Experiences

    What have you done in your life to get attention?   You can tie that into this song, because this is a song that’s all about God getting your attention.

    ---------------------------------

    Talk about being “startled into reality” by the lights on a police cruiser.   In the same way, talk about how when God shines into lives it can’t be ignored.

    ---------------------------------

    Talk about the last time you experienced a power outage, and that feeling of gratitude when the lights came back on.   Compare that to the thankfulness you feel when God illuminates His truth into your life.
