Verse One

He is coming Make a way The King is coming Prepare for Him the way
He is coming
On a horse of white
When is He coming?
Morning, noon, or night?

Pre-Chorus

Clothed in a robe that is dipped in blood
Poured from the vein of Redeeming Love
Died and rose again and now
He reigns above
And Jesus is His name

Chorus

 

Reign King Jesus!
Reign in me!
Reign King Jesus!
Lord of Lords and King of Kings!
Reign King Jesus!
Reign in me!
Reign King Jesus!
Reign in glory!
Reign in me!

 

John the Baptist came to prepare the way of the Lord…to remind people that the Messiah was indeed on His way. As believers, we are called to do the same thing. If I am to prepare the way of the Lord – remind people He is coming – it stands to reason that I should probably prepare the way beginning with my own life. If I desire the kingdom to come in my life I do that by welcoming the King. To prepare for His entrance I need to clear away the things that are in the way. Anything that stands between me and the King must go. In my own life I prepared the way of the King by ridding my life of any other voices that cluttered the airways of my mind that kept me from hearing His voice. From 1981 until 1993 I did not listen to any other music but what He was giving me. I also greatly limited the kind of TV I watched – mainly the news and Johnny Carson! In the process – even though I did not know it at the time – I was actually making a way for the King to have greater access to my heart and life…and He began to reveal Himself in ways I had only dreamed of.

Take time to meditate today on the things that stand between you and the King. What needs to be done to make a way for Him in those areas?

The crowds going ahead of Him, and those who followed, were shouting, "Hosanna to
the Son of David; BLESSED IS HE WHO COMES IN THE NAME OF THE LORD;
Hosanna in the highest!"
Matthew 21:9 NASB
