King of My Heart

Now, O my God, let your eyes be open and your ears attentive to the prayer of this place. “And now arise, O LORD God, and go to your resting place, you and the ark of your might. Let your priests, O LORD God, be clothed with salvation, and let your saints rejoice in your goodness. – 2 Chronicles 6:40–41

This Sunday, we will be introducing a new song to our gathering, King of My Heart by John Mark and Sarah McMillan, featured on the album Live at the Knight. The song is a plea to God, that He would reign in the hearts of those he is king over, the hearts that rightfully belong to him. And while sin is something we will continue to struggle with until Jesus returns, if you are a follower of Jesus, God is fighting for you not against you. Nothing can compare to our King. He knows how hard life is. He isn’t surprised when we slip and fall into sin, which is why sent Jesus to die on the cross to save us from his wrath. Yet, in our limited thinking and processing, we so often try to “fix” or satisfy our hearts with things other than our King, which always leaves us worse off than before. We can’t outrun or escape these things on our own. So what do we do? Run to the King.

Here are the lyrics:

Let the King of my heart be the mountain where I run
The fountain I drink from, oh, He is my song
Let the King of my heart be the shadow where I hide
The ransom for my life, oh, He is my song

You are good, good, oh
You are good, good, oh

Let the King of my heart be the wind inside my sails
The anchor in the waves, oh, He is my song
Let the King of my heart be the fire inside my veins
The echo of my days, oh, He is my song

You’re never gonna let, never gonna let me down
You’re never gonna let, never gonna let me down

When the night is holding on to me, God is holding on

When we want to run away, may we run to you, not another relationship, or dead-end path. Jesus, help us to only chase your glory. Help us to fix our eyes on you.
