Shining With Brightness

 

Those whose names are written
shall be delivered

shining with brightness
a heavenly glow

purified, made white
refined with understanding

the wisdom of making
His glory known.

**********

You establish a refining understanding.

“And at that time your people shall be delivered, every one who is found written in the book. Those who are wise shall shine like the brightness of the firmament, and those who turn many to righteousness like the stars forever and ever. Many shall be purified, made white, and refined but the wicked shall do wickedly; and none of the wicked shall understand, but the wise shall understand.” Daniel 12:1,3,10 NKJV

Because Of Your Great Mercies

Because of Your
great mercies

we can come
before You

speaking
supplications

for we are
Your people.

“Oh my God, incline Your ear and hear; open Your eyes and see our desolations and the city which is called by Your name; for we do not present our supplications before You because of our righteous deeds, but because of Your great mercies. O Lord, hear! O Lord, forgive! O Lord, listen and act! Do not delay for Your own sake, for Your city and Your people are called by Your name.” Daniel 9:18,19 NKJV
