This One Is Peace

 

We shall abide
in His greatness

for this One is
our peace

able to stand
and feed His flock

in strength and
majesty.

**********

You who are peace and great to the ends of the earth are with me.

**********

“And He shall stand and feed His flock in the strength of the LORD, in the majesty of the name of the LORD His God; and they shall abide, for now He shall be great to the ends of the earth; and this One shall be peace.”

The Lord’s Reign

 

Oh You shall be
lifted up

exalted above
every hill

all shall come
to learn Your ways

and walk in
Your will.

**********

You are with me and will be forever exalted.

**********

“Now it shall come to pass in the latter days that the mountain of the LORD’s house shall be established on the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and people shall flow to it.”

“Many nations shall come and say, ‘Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the house of the God of Jacob; He will teach us His ways, and we shall walk in His paths.’ “.

Twists

 

Let me not practice
ignore or tolerate

anything in me
that’s not of You

keeping to
Your word and Your way

not twisting and turning
the Truth.

**********

I can respond with truth and love, for You are with me.

**********

“And I said. ‘Hear now, heads of Jacob and rulers of the house of Israel
Is it not for you to know and administer justice?’ “

“Then they will cry to the Lord, but He will not answer them; instead, He will even hide His face from them at that time [withholding His mercy] because they have practiced and tolerated and ignored evil acts.”

“Now hear this, you heads of the house of Jacob and rulers of the house of Israel, who hate and reject justice and twist everything that is straight . . .”

My Words Do Good

 

Your word always
always does good

Your judgements
are forever true

it is not You who
antagonize us

but we in deep
deep need of You.

***********

You are with me and Your word does good in my life.

**********

” ‘Do not speak out,’ so they speak out. But if they do not speak out concerning these things, reproaches will not be turned back.”

“Is it being said, O house of Jacob;
‘Is the Soirit of the LORD impatient?
Or are these [prophesied judgements] His doings?’
Do not My words do good
To the one walking uprightly?”

“But lately My people have stood up as an enemy [and have made Me their antagonist].”

Quenching Fiery Darts

 

Lord help me tuck Your truth
inside of me

as I prepare
for each day

keeping my emotions in check
with Your righteousness

and by faith sending satan’s
barbs away.

**********

You are with me and provide me with all I need to face each day’s challenges.

**********

“Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness,”

“and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace,”

“above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one.”

Ephesians 6:14,15,16 NKJV

To Stand

 

We can put on
the full armor of God

so that we
can stand

not fighting against
flesh and blood

but the powers of darkness
at hand.

**********

I can stand in the evil day, for You are with me.

**********

“Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.”

“For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.”

“Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.”

Ephesians 6:11,12,13. NKJV

As Dear Children

 

Let the words
from my mouth

be simply
thankful ones

as an imitator
of God

lighted by
His Son.

**********

I can imitate You, for You are with me.

**********

“Therefore be imitators of God as dear children.”

“But fornication and all uncleaness or covetousness, let it not even be named among you, as is fitting for saints;”

“neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor coarse jesting, which are not fitting, but rather giving of thanks.”

“For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light.”

Ephesians 5:1,3,4,8. NKJV

Knit Together

 

We are joined together
close knit
by what each
supplies

every one
doing their part
causes growth and
edifies.

**********

You are with me and help me supply a need within the body.

**********

“. . .that we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting, ”

“but, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head – Christ -“

“from whom the whole body, joined and knit together by what every joint supplies, according to the effective working by which every part does its share, causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love.”

Ephesians 4:14,15,16 NKJV

One Lord, one faith

Rooted And Grounded

 

O Lord strengthen us
on the inside

by Your Holy Spirit
and might

filling us with
Your fullness

to know Your love
it’s depth, its height.

**********

I am rooted and grounded in Your love, for You are with me.

**********

“. . . that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man, “

“that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love,”

“may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height – to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.”
