They Saw the Light - David Part 1

Come into my heart
Come into my heart
Come into my heart, Lord Jesus
Come into today
Come in to stay
Come into my heart, Lord Jesus.
But once again, sin and darkness reared their ugly heads.  Witchcraft, idolatry, greed and rebellion plagued the nation.  And to make matters worse they saw the answer to the problem through human wisdom and understanding.  They wanted a king like other nations had kings.  They failed to recognize God as their true and only King.  But God lifted up kings over them. 

However, there was only one who truly won the heart of God.  His mouth and heart were filled with worship and praise.  He honored God and God honored him.  And God gave King David a promise.  He declared:

”The Lord declares to you that the Lord Himself will establish a house for you:  when your days are over and you rest with your fathers, I will raise up your offspring to succeed you, who will come from your own body, and I will establish his kingdom....your house and your kingdom will endure forever before Me; your throne will be established forever.”

The promise was still on course.  In the midst of darkness, David saw the light.*

Light three candles!

O come, Thou Key of David, come,
And open wide our heavenly home;
Make safe the way that leads on high,
And close the path to misery.
Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
Shall come to thee, O Israel.
