Of The Day

 

We are not
in spiritual darkness

but sons of light
daughters of day

wearing our breastplates
of faith and love

with the confident hope
of the saved.

**********

I have a confident hope and assurance of salvation, for You are with me.

**********

“But you, brethren, are not in darkness, so that this Day should over take you as a thief.”

“You are all sons of light and sons of the day. We are not of the night nor darkness.”

“But let us who are of the day be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and as a helmet the hope of salvation.”

1 Thessalonians 5:4,5,8. NKJV

Living Quietly

 

Live quietly
in peace

mindful of yourself
working with your hands

so that the outside
world sees

your heart toward God
and man.

**********

I can live quietly for You are with me.

**********

“But we urge you, brothers and sisters, that you excel [in this matter] more and more, “

“and to make it your ambition to live quietly and peacefully, and to mind your own affairs and work with your hands, just as we directed you, “

“so that you will behave properly toward outsiders [exhibiting good character, personal integrity, and moral courage worthy of the outside world ] and be dependent on no one and in need of nothing [be self supporting].”

Increase In Love

 

Lord, increase our love
for one another

and to everyone
more and more

establishing our hearts
blameless and holy

before the One
we adore.

**********

You are with me and increase my love for others.

**********

“And may the Lord make you increase and abound in love to one another and to all, just as we do to you,”

“so that He may establish your hearts blameless in holiness before our God and Father at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ with all His saints.”

Appointed To This

 

May we be established
encouraged in our faith

and not so
easily shaken

by the afflictions
taking place

tribulations yet
to happen.

**********

You are with me and establish my faith.

**********

“Therefore, when we could no longer endure it, we thought it good to be left in Athens alone,”

“and sent Timothy, our brother and minister of God and our fellow laborer in the gospel of Christ, to establish you and encourage you concerning your faith,”

“that no one should be shaken by these afflictions; for you yourself know that we are appointed to this.”

“For, in fact, we told you before when we were with you that we would suffer tribulation, just as it happened, and you know.”

Effective

 

The word works
wonders in us

as we remember
who it’s from

not simply those
who speak it

but truly the Lord
above.

**********

You are with me and Your word works effectively in me.

**********

“For this reason we also thank God without ceasing, because when you received the word of God which you heard from us, you welcomed it not as the word of men, but as it is in truth, the word of God, which also effectively works in you who believe.”

1Thessalonians 2:13 NKJV

Pleasing

 

I have entrusted you with
the gospel

so that you
can speak

not worried about
pleasing men

but only to
please Me.

**********

I can please You for You are with me.

**********

“But just as we have been approved by God to be entrusted with the gospel [that tells the good news of salvation through faith in Christ], so we speak, not as [if we were trying] to please people [to gain power and popularity], but to please God who examines our hearts [expecting our best].

Sounding Forth

 

The word of the Lord
rings clear from us

our faith goes
everywhere

as we turn to Him
from idols

serving God with love
and prayer.

**********

Your word sounds forth from me for You are with me.

**********

“For from you the word of the Lord has sounded forth, inot only in Macedonia and Achaia, but also in every place. Your faith toward God has gone out, so that we do not need to say anything.”

“For they themselves declare concerning us what manner of entry we had to you, and how you turned to God from idols to serve the living and true God . . .”
