whose Kingdom
never ends.

Let It Be To Me

 

Oh Lord help me

and not

for though it won’t
be easy

You’ll be with me
all the way.

Certainty

 

All this was done
that it might be fulfilled

which was spoken
long ago

so we may know
the certainty

of those things
we’ve been told.

**********

“. . .that you may know the certainty of those things in which you were instructed.” Luke 1:4

“So all this was done that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the Lord through the prophet, saying: ‘Behold, the virgin shall be with child, and bear a Son, and they shall call His name Immanuel, which is translated, ‘God with us.’ “. Matthew 1:22,23

Reward

 

We are not waiting
for nothing

for only more pain
and emptiness

for we have a God
who loves us

who always keeps
His promises.

**********

You are with me and reward me as I seek You.

**********

“If you then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask Him!” Matthew 7:11 NIV

“Blessed are all those who wait for Him. You shall weep no more. He will be very gracious to you at the sound of your cry; when He hears it, He will answer you.” Isaiah 30:18,19 NKJV

“But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.” Hebrews 11:6 NKJV

My Alliance

 

May the alliance
that I keep

be the one I have
with You

the Rock on whom
I can depend

the Strength
to see me through.

***********

You are with me and I can depend on You.

“Woe to those who go down to Egypt for help, and rely on horses, who trust in chariots because they are many, and in horsemen because they are very strong, but who do not look to the Holy One of Israel, nor seek the LORD!” Isaiah 31:1 NKJV

“Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.” Matthew 11:28-30 NKJV

With Us

 

 He is with us
He will save us

He won’t leave us
on our own.

He will save us
He is with us

stopping at nothing
to bring us home.

**********

You establish an intimate relationship with us.

**********

“This is how Jesus the Messiah was born. His mother, Mary, was engaged to be married to Joseph. But before the marriage took place, while she was still a virgin, she became pregnant through the power of the Holy Soirit. Joseph, her fiancée, was a good man and did not want to disgrace her publicly, so he decided to break the engagement quietly.”

“As he considered this, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream. ‘Joseph, son of David,’ the angel said, ‘do not be afraid to take Mary as your wife. For the child within her was conceived by the Holy Spirit. And she will have a son, and you are to name Him Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins.”

“All of this occurred to fulfill the Lord’s message through his prophet:

‘Look! The virgin will conceive a child!
She will give birth to a son,
and they will call Him Immannuel,
which means “God is with us’ “

Matthew 1:18-23

Prepare

 

John shouted
prepare the way
clear the road
and baptized the weary

so we can walk
hearts ablaze
into our King’s
light and glory.

**********

You establish preparations.

**********

“In those days John the Baptist came to the Judean wilderness and began preaching. His message was, ‘Repent of your sins and turn to God, for the Kingdom of Heaven is near.’ The prophet Isaiah was speaking of John when he said,

“He is a voice shouting in the wilderness,
‘Prepare the way for the Lord’s coming !
Clear the road for Him!’ “

Matthew 3:1-3

Rejoice

 

Rejoice
for I have risen

I’m no longer
in the tomb

crucified
for your sins

now I’m alive
in each of you.

You establish my reason to rejoice.

“And as they went to tell His disciples, behold, Jesus met them, saying, ‘Rejoice!’ And they came and held Him by the feet and worshiped Him. Lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Matthew 28:9,20 NKJV

Prophecy

 

Though they bowed
to mock and blaspheme

even this
was prophecy

for every tongue
will confess

and every knee
bend to Me.

You establish and fulfill prophecy for me.

“When they had twisted a crown of thorns, they put it on His head, and a reed in His right hand. And they bowed the knee before Him and mocked Him, saying, ‘Hail, King of the Jews.’ ” Matthew 27:29 NKJV

This Cup

 

Take this cup
that I give you

drink from it now
for Me

for it is My will
that you remember

My blood has set
you free.

You establish Your will for me.

“Then He took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, ‘Drink from it, all of you. For this is My blood of the new covenant, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.’ O My Father, if this cup cannot pass away from Me unless I drink it, Your will be done.”  Matthew 26:27,28,42 NKJV
