Revived

 

You shall be revived
like grain

and grow
like the vine

all your fruit
shall be found in Me

your scent shall be
like wine.

*********

You are with me and grow me.

*********

“I will heal their backsliding,
I will love them freely . . .”

“They shall be revived like grain,
And grow like the vine.
Their scent shall be like the wine of Lebanon.”

“I am like a green cyprus tree;
Your fruit is found in Me.”

Hosea 14:4,7,8 NKJV

No God But Me

 

I have no God
but You, Lord

You are my Savior
so true

and when my pastures
are green, Lord

may I ever sing praise
to You.

*********

You alone are my God who is with me.

**********

“Yet I am the LORD your God
Ever since the land of Egypt,
And you shall know no God but Me;
For there is no savior besides Me.”

“I knew you in the wilderness,
In the land of great drought.”

“When they had pasture, they were filled,
They were filled and their heart was exalted;
Therefore they forgot Me.”

Hosea 13:4,5,6 NKJV

Wait On Your God

 

You speak to me
in the quiet

and even in
the storm

saying observe mercy
and justice

**********

You are with me as I wait on You.

**********

“He found Him in Bethel,
And there He spoke to us -“

“That is, the LORD God of hosts.
The LORD is His memorable name.”

“So you, by the help of your God, return;
Observe mercy and justice,
And wait on your God continually.”

Continual Love

 

I draw you
with gentle cords

I take away the yoke
and feed

teaching you
how to walk

loving you
continually.

*********

You are with me because You love me.

+++++++

“I taught Ephraim to walk,
Taking them by their arms;
But they did not know that I healed them.”

“I drew them with gentle cords,
With bands of love,
And I was to them as those who take the yoke from their neck.
I stooped and fed them.”

“For I am God, and not man,
The Holy One in your midst;
And I will not come with terror.”

Hosea 11:3,4,9 NKJV

Sowing and Reaping

 

You will learn
to seek Me

and I will show
you how

to sow
in righteousness

upon your fallow
ground.

**********

Because You are with me, I can sow righteousness and reap mercy.

**********

“Sow for yourselves righteousness;
Reap in mercy;
break up the fallow ground.
For it is time to seek the LORD,
Til He comes and rains righteousness on you.”

Remember

 

Help me

In His Sight

 

I will heal
and bind up

I will revive
and raise

coming like
the former

and the latter
rains.

**********

You are with me as I live in Your sight.

**********

“Come and let us return to the LORD;
For He has torn, but He will heal us;
He has stricken, but He will bind us up.”

“After two days He will revive us;
On the third day He will raise us up,
That we may live in His sight.”

“Let us know,
Let us pursue the knowledge of the LORD.
His going forth is established as the morning;
He will come to us like the rain,
Like the latter and former rain to the earth.

Know Me

 

Turn your thoughts and deeds
toward Me

for I can
be known

and you’ll find that I
am sure

when nothing else
will hold.

***********

I can know You for You are with me.

***********

“They do not direct their deeds
Toward turning to their God,
For the spirit of harlotry is in their midst,
And they do not know the Lord.”

“Among the tribes of Israel I make known what is sure.”

“When Ephraim sees his sickness
And Judah sees his wound,
Then Ephraim went to Assyria
And sent to King Jareb;
Yet he cannot cure you,
Nor heal you of your wound.”

Hosea 5:4,9,13. NKJV

Accept Knowledge

 

Accept My knowledge
and understanding

and always
think about Me

for nothing good comes
from idols

and behaving
stubbornly.

**********

I will be okay today only because You are with me.

*********

“My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.
Because you have rejected knowledge . . . .you have forgotten the law of your God. “

“For Israel is stubborn
Like a stubborn calf;
Now the Lord will let them forage
Like a lamb in open country.”

Hosea 4:6,16. NKJV

It Shall Come To Pass

 

Turn to Me
and away from

all that’s false
in your life

though you once
chased after it

today you’ll be
My bride.

*********

You establish restoration.

*********

“And it shall come to pass
In the place where it was said to them,
‘You are not My people,’
There is shall be said to them,
‘You are the sons of the living God.’ “

Hosea 1:10 NKJV

(Sorry . . .I DID have one more “establish” post for 2018. )

**********

Happy and blessed New Year!
