At The Word Unleashed,

our prayer is that the power of God’s Word

will be unleashed in your life.

HEBREWS 4:12

FROM TOM PENNINGTON

Our chief assignment as preachers of the Word of God is to be faithful with the “mysteries of God” revealed in the Word of God. Church leaders have many responsibilities in Christ’s church, but our chief duty, our primary task, is to feed His sheep! We must first be faithful stewards of the Word of God and the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.

“For we do not preach ourselves but Christ Jesus as Lord, and ourselves as your bond-servants for Jesus’ sake. For God, who said, ‘Light shall shine out of darkness,’ is the One who has shone in our hearts to give the Light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ.”

2 CORINTHIANS 4:5–6

The Heart of Thanksgiving | Psalm 100

On this Thanksgiving holiday, as you gather with family and friends, I encourage you to make today about more than family, food, and football. Of course, enjoy those things, they are good in their own right—everything good comes from God. But don't let your...

Part 8

God is sovereign over human history and Christians must rest in the fact that God’s purposes will be done. Daniel was confident in this reality, and we should be as well.

Do Not Love the World – Pt. 3 | The Meaning of “World”

Last time, we saw that John warned his readers to not love the world or the things of the world. The Greek word for “world” is kosmos, and it is by far the most common word for “world” in the New Testament, occurring over 180 times. Its basic meaning is “order or...

Part 7

One of the most astounding prophecies in all of Scripture comes at the conclusion of Daniel 9. In this prophecy God reveals what will happen in Israel’s future.

Part 6

God has a plan for human history and it is currently coming to pass exactly as He has planned. God reveals part of this plan to Daniel in response to his prayer.

HYMNS

Let the word of Christ richly dwell within you, with all wisdom teaching and admonishing one another with psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with thankfulness in your hearts to God.

COLOSSIANS 3:16

OUR SOVEREIGN GOD

Contemporary Version

Orchestral Version

Score | Parts | Lead Sheet

Verse 1

Our Sovereign God by His own word

Sustains this world and reigns as Lord.

No angel, demon, sinful man can change

His course, restrain His hand.

O sovereign God, we praise Your pow’r;

Your wisdom, goodness we adore!

We bow our hearts before Your throne;

Help us, O Lord, to trust You more,

Help us, O Lord, to trust You more.

Verse 2

When the fullness of the time had come,

God sent His own Beloved Son.

To keep God’s law, live in our place,

To bear our sin, guilt and disgrace.

Dead in our sin, estranged from God,

We fled as rebels from His love.

In sovereign grace He made us sons,

And saved us from the wrath to come,

And saved us from the wrath to come.

Verse 3

Before our birth He planned our days,

Laid out our course, ordained our ways.

The moments of our lives He weaves

So all the glory He receives.

To those He loved before all time,

To all He called, and grace renewed,

He cannot lie; His word is true,

He makes all things to work for good,

He makes all things to work for good.

Verse 4

He has written history’s final page

His Son’s return will end this age.

The Lamb will come in glorious might,

Take back His world and end it’s night.

How deep the wisdom of our God,

Unknown, unfathomed are His ways.

None counsels Him or knows His mind.

We bow before Him all our days,

We bow before Him all our days

O sovereign God, we praise Your pow’r;

Your wisdom, goodness we adore!

We bow our hearts before Your throne;

Help us, O Lord, to trust You more,

Help us, O Lord, to trust You more.

OUR GOD HAS MAGNIFIED HIS WORD

Contemporary Version

Score | Parts | Lead Sheet

Verse 1

Our God has magnified His Word, just as He has His name,

Complete and holy, sure and true, eternally the same.

Until the earth shakes off its frame, the stars their courses stray,

The smallest letter, slightest stroke will never pass away!

Verse 2

God’s perfect truth in words expressed, the Spirit’s grand design.

Not only true in its great themes, but true in every line.

Though darkness reigns and men may rage, against the light conspire,

Still God is true in all in all His words and every man a liar!

Verse 3

The Word reveals God’s timeless plan, one great, eternal aim,

To save a people for His Son and glorify His name.

From every verse on every page, there is a road that leads

To heaven’s Lord and Calvary’s lamb, to Him who died for me!

Verse 4

Man’s wisdom and his glory fail, as grass they fade and die,

But God’s truth always will remain, “the saints and angels cry!

O Lord, we tremble at Your Word, and from our hearts believe.

Help us to guard, love and obey the treasure we received!

O Lord, we tremble at Your Word, and from our hearts believe.

Help us to guard, love and obey the treasure we received!
