Strength & Salvation

September 19, 2007

But LORD, be merciful to us, for we have waited for you. Be our strength each day and our salvation in times of trouble.
Isaiah 33:2

Rescue by Don Moen 

You are the source of life
I can’t be left behind
No one else will do
I will take hold of you

(Chorus)
Cause I need you Jesus
To come to me rescue
Where else can I go
There’s no other name
By which I am saved
Capture me with grace
I will follow you
I will follow you

My heart is yours for life
I need your hand in mine
No one else will do
I put my trust in you

(Chorus)

This world has nothing for me
I will follow you
This world has nothing for me
I will follow you
This world has nothing for me
But I’ll follow you
This world has nothing for me

(Chorus – key change)
Cause I need you Jesus
To come to my rescue
Where else can I go
There`s no other name
By which I am saved
capture me with grace

(Repeat Chorus)
Capture me with grace
Capture me with grace
I will follow you

I will trust in you
This world has nothing for me
I will trust in you
This world has nothing for me
I will follow you

Out of a Stump…

September 12, 2007

Out of the stump of David’s family will grow a shoot – yes, a new Branch bearing fruit from the old root. And the Spirit of the LORD will rest on him – the Spirit of wisdom and understanding, the Spirit of counsel and might, the Spirit of knowledge and the fear of the LORD. He will delight in obeying the LORD. He will never judge by appearance, false evidence, or hearsay. He will defend the poor and the exploited. He will rule against the wicked and destroy them with the breath of his mouth. He will be clothed with fairness and truth.
Isaiah 11:1-5

When I read about the stump I think of something that was  dead. Most stumps have been cut down from trees that were either weak or dead. We were once stumps that were dead to Christ. But the Spirit of God caused the spirit that He placed within us to sprout out from that stump into a life with Christ.

We have been called to the new Branch bearing fruit. We have the fruit of the Spirit within us. Below is a reminder of what the fruit of the Spirit is for you today. Write them on your heart for there is no law against these things:

  • love
  • joy
  • peace
  • patience
  • kindness
  • goodness
  • faithfulness
  • gentleness
  • self-control

(Galatians 5:22-23)

Fear

September 11, 2007

Do not fear anything except the LORD Almighty. He alone is the Holy One. If you fear him, you need fear nothing else.
Isaiah 8:13

Believe Me

September 10, 2007

But this is what the Sovereign Lord says, “This invasion will never happen,…You do not believe me? If you want me to protect you, learn to believe what I say.”
Isaiah 7:7, 9b

The Word is a Gem

September 7, 2007

Then he added, “Every teacher of religious law who becomes a disciple in the Kingdom of Heaven is like a homeowner who brings from his storeroom new gems of truth as well as old.”
Matthew 13:52

Something I read recently…

The rabbis spoke of the text being like a gem with seventy faces, and each time you turn the gem, the light refracts differently, giving you a reflection you haven’t seen before. And so we turn the text again and again because we keep seeing things we missed the time before.
Velvet Elvis, page 90
by Rob Bell

I have probably posted this video before but it is in my heart this morning.

Help me Lord to find new gems of truth that Shine your glory!

Rescue & Revelation

September 6, 2007

What I want instead is your true thanks to God; I want you to fulfill your vows to the Most High.

Trust me in your times of trouble, and I will rescue you, and you will give me glory.
Psalm 50:14-15

But giving thanks is a sacrifice that truly honors me. If you keep to my path, I will reveal to you the salvation of God.
Psalm 50:23
