Lord of Lords

“You alone are the LORD. You made the heavens, even the highest heavens, and all their starry host, the earth and all that is on it, the seas and all that is in them. You give life to everything, and the multitudes of heaven worship you.”
Nehemiah 9:6 NIV

 

Where heaven and earth collided, the Lord of Lords was born; a virgin and a shepherd to welcome Him as their own Son. As He lay fast asleep in a bed of straw, His creation wrapped around Him in fascination. The God who formed all of the universe, now to take the form of a human; His only begotten Son. In a humble stable, the earth was gifted with Jesus–the name above all names. And as He took His first breaths, all of creation welcomed Him in worship.

 

This was more than the birth of a baby; this was the birth of the Lord of Lords.

 

One can only imagine the glorious display on that night. Those tiny hands that gripped onto strips of cloth, had shaped the earth around them, and the highest heavens and all upon the earth acknowledged that. Multitudes of heaven, all of the planets, and every single star rejoiced as their Lord had been brought into the earth. All of creation acknowledged Him as Lord; joining together in both stillness and excitement, silence and chorus, wonder and awe.

 

In Isaiah 55:12 the Word says that the mountains and hills will burst into song before [the presence of the Lord]. In Job 38:7 the Bible reads, “the morning stars sang together and all the angels shouted for joy.”

 

The Word of God proclaims time and time again of how Creation would sing and bring praise in the presence of the One True Lord; the Lord of Lords.

 

All of heaven and earth know Jesus is the Lord of Lords and trust Him as the Sovereign King; the Giver of Life. We are the people Jesus was born to save. He wasn’t crucified for the nature around us; He was crucified for us. As Creation rejoices together honoring the birth of the Lord above all other Lords, let us join together with the song of our lives to honor Him as the Saviour of our hearts.
