When Ron Kenoly brought this song out in 1992, it took the Christian world by storm. The song was inspired by Daniel 7:9 which says ‘thrones were set in place, and the Ancient of Days took his seat. His clothing was as white as snow; the hair of his head was white like wool. His throne was flaming with fire, and its wheels were all ablaze’. (NIV)
It’s a really prophetic chapter speaking of things to come and what the world might look like. There’s a lot of mystery in the text, and much debate around its true meaning.
What Kenoly did with the song is speak of God’s enduring love, his power, authority, majesty and eternal nature. The song is such a proclamation of who God is, not contained by wars, philosophy, tradition or technology. The Ancient of Days is our God, what a wonderful song to hear.
Keep in focus how vast the rule and reign of God is.
Lord, I am so grateful I am part of your Kingdom, help me to keep focussed on your magnificent nature, Amen.
