"Praise The King" by Corey Voss - Song Devotional

At some point in our lives, we have all felt the sting of death. The Bible tells us that the wages of our sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus.

Lift Oh Gates by Corey Voss - Song Devotional

Psalm 24:7 is a scripture many of us have read before or possibly glanced over it. It says, "Lift up your heads, O gates, and be lifted up, ancient doors, that the King of glory may come in." The first time I read this scripture I thought to myself, "wow, what a pretty picture" even though I wasn't completely sure of the reference or meaning. As I continued to read, meditate, and pray for insight, I began to connect the dots.

Canyons - Song Devotional
