The Lord showed me a picture of a cake; the sides are golden, the top covered in white icing. Around the outer edge, I see golden cannons pointing out away from the cake. Written on the cake is, ‘You are my celebration‘.
I see the cannons explode with power and, out of the mouths of these cannons, I see people being blasted out. Where they land, I see the earth shake, rumble and ROAR!
And God said, ‘Where I have placed you, will never be the same. For you, my people, have been called to bring transformation through celebration.’
1 Chronicles 16:23-36
Sing to the LORD, all the earth; proclaim his salvation day after day.
Declare his glory among the nations, his marvellous deeds among all peoples.
For great is the LORD and most worthy of praise; he is to be feared above all gods.
For all the gods of the nations are idols, but the LORD made the heavens.
Splendour and majesty are before him; strength and joy are in his dwelling place.
Ascribe to the LORD, all you families of nations, ascribe to the LORD glory and strength.
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.
Tremble before him, all the earth!
The world is firmly established; it cannot be moved.
Let the heavens rejoice, let the earth be glad; let them say among the nations, “The LORD reigns!”
Let the sea resound, and all that is in it; let the fields be jubilant, and everything in them!
Let the trees of the forest sing, let them sing for joy before the LORD, for he comes to judge the earth.
Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever.
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.”
Praise be to the LORD, the God of Israel, from everlasting to everlasting.
