Captivity Led Captive

imageheaded off to the neighbors

after refusing to take

a walk with us

 

I didn’t know he had it in him.

“He brings out those who are bound into prosperity. You have led captivity captive. Blessed be the Lord, who daily loads us with benefits, the God of our salvation.”   Psalm 68:6,18,19

Captivity

will be led captive

prosperity

set free

benefits

upon benefits

for  those who

trust in Me.

Brought Out

 house and animal

sitting

all eyes on us

“We went through fire and through water; but You brought us out to rich fulfillment.  Blessed be God, who has not turned away my prayer, nor His mercy from me.”  Psalm 66:12,20 NKJV

I have brought you

through the fire

and through

the water too

never turning

away your prayer

nor My mercy

from you.

Rejoice

So often she has made sure I don’t miss a sunset.

“You make the outgoings of the morning and evening rejoice.”  Psalm 65:8 NKJV

 *****

I am the God
of your salvation
the confidence
of all the earth

the provider of
atonement
through whom goodness
is birthed.

Preserved

too hard to do
done

Preserve my life from fear of the enemy.”  Psalm 64:1 NKJV
“The righteous shall be glad in the Lord, and trust in Him,
And all the upright in heart shall glory.”  Psalm 64:10 NKJV

*****

You will trust  Me
and be glad
in Me your heart

for I’ll preserve you
from your fear
of the enemy’s
lies and stories.

Satisfied

IMG_0394plant put outside
now back inside
still not satisfied

“O God, You are my God;
Early will I seek You;
My soul thirsts for You;
In a dry and thirsty land
Where there is no water. ”  Psalm 63:1 NKJV

“Because Your lovingkindness is better than life,
My lips shall praise You.”  Psalm 63:3 NKJV

“My soul shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness . . .”  Psalm 63:5 NKJV

***

Let your soul
thirst for Me
and your flesh
too

for My lovingkindness
is better than life –
only I
can satisfy you.

Wait Silently

not like the others

Rare to find something alive on the front of the car.

“My soul wait silently for God alone. He is my defense; I shall not be moved. Power belongs to God. Also to You, O Lord, belongs mercy.”  Psalm 62:5,6,11,12  NKJV

Power
belongs to Me
and mercy
is also Mine

that you might wait
and not be moved
from
My time line.

Overwhelmed

IMG_0320When your heart
is overwhelmed
and you cry out
in prayer

I am the Rock
you are led to
where mercy and truth
are shared.

“When my heart is overwhelmed; lead me to the rock that is higher than I.”  Psalm 61:2 NKJV

My Defense

imageWait for Me
My beloved
for I am
your defense

your refuge in
the day of trouble
the One from whom
all mercy’s sent.

Oh Lord, thank You. You are my Defender, my Redeemer . . .how merciful are You.  My Refuge in the day of trouble; Your strength always sees me through.

“But I will sing of Your power;
Yes, I will sing aloud of Your mercy in the morning;
For You have been my defense
And refuge in the day of my trouble.
To You, O my Strength, I will sing praises,
For God is my defense
The God of my mercy.”  Psalm 59:16-17 NKJV

Falling Away

I looked up but couldn’t see where it had fallen from.

“Surely there is a reward for the righteous; surely He is God who judges in the earth.”  Psalm 58:11 NKJV

I am the Reward                                                                                 and the Rewarder                                                                               of  My                                                                                                 righteous ones

the God who judges                                                                         in the earth                                                                                       so that evil’s                                                                                           undone.

Everything about the basement seemed beyond my ability to improve.
