In Darkness


When you walk into
the darkness

where there is
no light

trust in My name
you’re not forsaken

rely on My
power and might.

I am secure even in times of darkness.

“Is My hand shortened at all that it cannot redeem? Or have I no power to deliver? Who among you fears the LORD? Who obeys the voice of His servant? Who walks in darkness and has no light? Let him trust in the name of the LORD and rely upon His God.” Isaiah 50:2,10 NKJV

I’ve been given as
a covenant to you

even to the ends
of the earth

and your name’s inscribed
on My hands

that you may never
doubt your worth.

My name is accepted because of You, Jesus. ( One of the definitions of establish is to cause to be accepted .)

“I will also give You as a light to the Gentiles, that You should be My salvation to the ends of the earth . I will preserve You and give You as a covenant to the people . . .that You may say to the prisoners, ‘Go forth, ‘ to those who are in darkness, ‘Show yourselves.’ Sing, O heavens! Be joyful, O earth! And break out in singing, O mountains! For the Lord has comforted His people, and will have mercy on His afflicted. Yet I will not forget you. See, I have inscribed you on the palms of My hands . . .” Isaiah 49:6,8,9,13,15,16. NKJV

To Profit


From the beginning
I have spoken

so that
you can hear

Me teach you
how to profit

and guide you
ever near.

My profit is established in You.

“Come near to Me, hear this: I have not spoken in secret from the beginning; from the time that it was, I  was there. And now the Lord GOD and His Spirit have sent Me. Thus says the LORD, your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel: I am the LORD your God, who teaches you to profit, who leads you by the way you should go.” Isaiah 48:16,17 NKJV

You Have Me


My dear child
you do not need

to worry
fret or stew

like the world which looks
to useless things

you have Me
Holy and True.

My redemption is established in You.

“As for our Redeemer, the LORD of hosts is His name, the Holy One of Israel. ” Isaiah 47:4 NKJV

more than enough.

Not In Vain


In Me you shall
be justified

and in Me you
shall glory

for you were not
created in vain

but to live out My
salvation story.

My purpose is established in You.

“Rain down, you heavens, from above, and let the skies pour down righteousness; let the earth open, let them bring forth salvation . . .Who is God, who formed the earth and made it, who established it, who did not create it in vain, who formed it to be inhabited; I am the LORD and there is no other. I have not spoken in secret, in a dark place of the earth; I did not say to the seed of Jacob, ‘Seek Me in vain’; I, the LORD, speak righteousness, I declare things that are right. In the LORD all the descendants of Israel shall be justified, and shall glory.” Isaiah 45:8,18,19,25 NKJV

Poured Upon


When you are
dry and thirsty

I’ll pour Myself
on you

flooding you with
My Spirit

blessing your children

My family is established by You.

“For I will pour water on him who is thirsty , and floods on the dry ground ; I will pour My Spirit on your descendants, and My blessing on your offspring. They will spring up among the grass like willows by the water courses.” Isaiah 44:3,4 NKJV



You are precious
in My sight
honored, loved

and I will make
a way for you
new paths and
fresh streams.

My way is established by You.

“Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by your name; you are Mine. Since you were precious in My sight, you have been honored, and I have loved you. I will even make a road in the wilderness and rivers in the desert . . .to give drink to My people, My chosen.” Isaiah 43:1,4,19,20 NKJV

New Things


A bruised reed
I will not break

the blind
I will not leave

I will make
the darkness light

new things for you
to see.

Jesus establishes new things for me.

“A bruised reed He will not break. Behold, the former things have come to pass, and new things I declare; before they spring forth I tell you of them. I will bring the blind by a way they did not know; I will lead them in paths they have not known. I will make darkness light before them, and crooked places straight. These things I will do for them, and not forsake them.” Isaiah 42:3,9,16 NKJV

Fear Not


Fear not
for I will help you

I will hold
your hand

keeping you
close to Me

as you learn
to stand.

My help is established by You.

“You will seek them and not find them – those who contend with you. Those who war against you shall be as nothing, as a nonexistent thing. For I, the Lord your God, will hold your right hand, saying to you, ‘Fear not, I will help you.’ ” Isaiah 41:12,13 NKJV
