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

His Spirit – Preparation

August 31, 2007

The earth was formless and empty, and darkness covered the deep waters. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the surface of the waters.
Genesis 1:2

His Spirit made the heavens beautiful, and his power pierced the gliding serpent.
Job 26:13

It is God who gives us, along with you, the ability to stand firm for Christ. He has commissioned us, And He has identified us as his own by placing the Holy Spirit in our hearts as the first installment of everything He will give us.
2 Corinthians 1:21 & 22

Surely it is God’s Spirit within people, the breath of the Almighty within them, that makes them intelligent.
Job 32:8

Clearly, you are a letter from Christ prepared by us. It is written not with pen and ink, but the the Spirit of the living God. It is carved not on stone, but on human hearts.
2 Corinthians  3:3

And all of us [whoever turns to the Lord] had that veil removed so that we can be mirrors that brightly reflect the glory of the Lord. And as the Spirit of the Lord works within us, we become more and more like Him and reflect His glory even more.
2 Corinthians 3:18

God Himself has prepared us for this, and as a guarantee, he has given us His Holy Spirit.

I’m God’s Masterpiece

August 24, 2007

Just love this song, Shine by Salvador. Lord, may I be used by you so that I may give your name glory and honor by shining for you!

Here is the video to the song and the words are below:

SHINE (by Salvador)

I woke up to another day
Another day to celebrate
Your beauty and your mystery, it’s more than any eye can see
I’m not the man I was before
With You, my life is so much more
Break the chains and open doors to a world I can’t ignore

Chorus
Lord let me shine, shine like the moon
A reflection of you in all that I do
Lord let me be a light for your truth
Light of the world, I wanna be used to shine for you

As simple as a passing smile
Or listening a little while
To someone that’s convinced that they are in this all alone
Here’s my chance to share the news
To introduce the good that’s you
Here you go again, you never cease to blow my mind

Chorus

You’re the love that we all need
You lift us up to our feet
You hold the key to eternity
The King of Kings alive in me
