We would all like to think that trusting both in God and allowing Him to work in our lives should be easy as pie. We should all be able to live in peace with good will for all our fellow men and women on this planet we call home.
However, this is not the reality we live in here on earth.
In reality we live in a sin-filled world. I wonder sometimes if The Lord looks down from Heaven with tears in His eyes as He did in the days of Noah, saying, He is grieved He made us.
In an instant a rainbow appears over a portion of the skies and The Lord is reminded of His covenant He made with Noah. He would never destroy all flesh in this world with a massive flood that covers the entire world again.
It was The Lord’s mercy and love for His creation that stayed His patient hand to keep Noah, his family as well as the animals safe on the Ark.
It was The Lord’s mercy and love for the human race that He humbled Himself taking on the nature of a human being, which is by all respects a servant in The Lord’s eyes.
He came into this world to restore and bring proper balance in relation to the relationship between Himself and mankind.
It was The Lord’s mercy that sent Jesus to die on the cross and that through belief in Him we should dwell with Him for eternity.
Now in today’s world, in which you and I live, where evil is called good and good called evil. We as believers and ambassadors of Jesus Christ live in this to live as He lived. As Christians we are to live a life of humility by esteeming others above ourselves which goes against what this world hold dears.
How are we as the body of Christ doing that I wonder?
I enter into Your presence
With praise falling from my lips
Scatter the plans of the enemy
The hearts of the nations
To proclaim Your Kingdom come
Your will be done
For great are You Lord
Great and marvelous are Your ways
Your kingdom is everlasting
Of Your power
There is no end
All the peoples of the earth
Proclaim His majesty
To the ends of the earth
Rejoice in Jesus Christ
Who is the Way
Who is the truth
Who is the life
The only God who became a man
Who walked a sinless life
Was nailed to a cross
Becoming sin and bearing the shame
Was buried and then raised to life
Now seated at the right hand
Of Him who sits on the throne
Who Will return to judge the earth
And gather His own
Praise and glory be His forever Amen!
Glory and honor
Belong to Your Name
Clothed in majesty
How great and vast
Your unshakable power is
How awesome are your deeds
Your wonders of old
I will make known
Holiness and grace
Is who You are
May I ever shout and sing
Of Your wondrous love
Oh, God My King
Let us all come before His throne of grace with joy. He has removed the reproach of sin and the sting of death far from us.
Come into His presence with praise; counting all the disasters and heart-wrenching circumstances as a test of our faith.
As we are refined by the circumstances in each of our lives; let’s remember that others are watching us to see how we react to the pressures of this life.
I have a few questions circling around in my mind and here they are.
Am I being ruled by my circumstances or or other things beyond my reach?
Who do I stand for?
Am I allowing the Lord to use or do I sit on the sidelines waiting to be asked to be of use?
Does my life reflect God’s character?
Do I ask the Lord who to vote for elections or complain about them?
Either the Lord is in control or we just think we are?
Think about it!
Clothed in glory
The Ancient of Days
Sits upon His throne
With the Son and Spirit
He governs the universe
Sometimes I wonder how much
Jesus longs to return to us, His Bride,
Or how often He cries out to The Father
“When can I return to bring her home
My Father, when, I hear her calling out to me.”
The Father replies, “wait… wait… wait
The time has not yet come but soon will be.
All things are in My hands
Yet My mercy remains still yet for a while
For I desire none to perish but all to have life in My Kingdom.”
As I come in worship
I am in awe of the holiness of my Lord
There is no wickedness or deceit
Found in Him
His ways are pure and endures always
His ways and His I desire
For all my days here on earth
Are limited but I take great joy
Being in His glorious presence
For it is there that I find great comfort
In knowing that all things are in
Your nail-pierced hands
Covered by your precious blood
So I will cling forever to Jesus
For He is my life and the light of my path.
We bring praise to You
King of glory
We bring praise to You
Lord of all the earth
May the heavens open
The seas resound
For the glory of The Lord
Is in this place
For You are great
Your love extends to mankind
For You desire none to perish
But have everlasting life
So, hear our hearts we pray
Fill the earth with those who will proclaim
Your message to all who will hear
That Jesus is The Lord of all
The author and finisher of the faith
May we ever proclaim Your name
To those in the earth.
