Over All I Know – Thursday Music

Today another song by Vertical Worship, who we also heard from here, with a song called Over All I Know. Focusing on the atttributes of God, the song is upwardly focused and sings praise to God based on who He is and what He has done. We open with 

You tell mountains they must fall and they fall

You tell oceans to be still and they’re calm

You tell sickness it must leave and it’s gone

In my weakness God I know You are strong

Jesus not only walked on water in Matthew 14.22-33, but calmed storms in Matthew 8.23-27. He healed on many occasions, more than 25 times, including the resuscitation of Lazarus in John 11, and Jairus’ deceased daughter in Matthew 9.

The chorus repeats some wonderful truths about Almighty God,

You are the One above it all,

I stand in awe

You’re the God over all I know

No higher name,

no greater throne,

You stand alone

You’re the God over all I know

God is truly above all, before all things, and in Him all things hold together (Colossians 1.17), He is everlasting and eternal (Psalm 90.2), and is enhroned forever as King over His creation (Psalm 29.10, 1 Chronicles 29.11-12).

His name is above all names (Philippians 2.9), and He alone is worthy to sit on heaven’s throne (Psalm 11.4, 1 Kings 22.19, Revelation 4.2).

This line is then tagged a few times, and herein lies our devotional for today,

I believe it, I have seen it, My God is over all

Do we believe this?

Do we believe that everything written above is true of Almighty God?

Have we seen it?

Have we seen His goodness and mercy and love around us? We need to be careful not to equate experiences alone with the presence of God, He is always there whether we feel it or not, but, have we seen His power around us? Have we seen His handiwork in the world? Have we seen Him working through those around us for His glory and the edification of His people?

If we believe this, and we have seen this, we can confidently say with a perfect mix of head and heart, of evidence and experience, of faith, hope, and love, that

I believe it, I have seen it, My God is over all
