Return And Submit

 

Surrender your attitudes
to Me

whatever they
may be

and I will help you
to submit

so only My love
is seen.

**********

I can submit in love to others for You are with me.

**********

“Then Sar’ai said to Abram, ‘My wrong be upon you! I gave my maid into your embrace and when she saw that she had conceived, I became despised in her eyes. The LORD judge between you and me.’ “

“And He said, ‘Ha’gar, Sar’ai’s maid, where have you come from, and where are you going?’ She said, ‘I am fleeing from the presence of my mistress Sar’ai.’ “

“The Angel of the LORD said to her, ‘Return to your mistress, and submit yourself under her hand.’ “.

An Altar To The Lord

 

At Shechem
at Bethel

and in Hebron
too

Abram built
altars

to honor and call
upon You.

**********

The One whom Abram called upon is with me.

**********

“The LORD appeared to Abram and said, ‘To your descendants I will give this land.’ And there he built an altar to the LORD, who had appeared to him.”

“And he moved from there to the mountain east of Beth’el, and he pitched his tent with Beth’el on the east; there he built an altar to the LORD and called on the name of the LORD.”

“Arise, walk in the land through its length and its width, for I give it to you.”

“Then Abram moved his tent, and went and dwelt by the terebinth trees of Mam’re, which are in Hebron, and built an altar there to the LORD.”

Genesis 12:7,8 ; 13:17,18 NKJV

God Remembers

 

As God
remembered Noah

and every
living thing

He promised as long as
the earth remained

seed time and harvest
He’d bring.

**********

The One who remembers every living thing is with me.

**********

“Then God remembered Noah, and every living thing, and all the animals that were with him in the ark. And God made a wind to pass over the earth, and the waters subsided.”

“While the earth remains, seed time and harvest, cold and heat, winter and summer, and day and night shall not cease.”

“So those that entered, male and female of all flesh, went in as God had commanded him; and the LORD shut him in.”

Walk With You

 

I want to walk with You
like Noah

not running ahead
or falling behind

doing what
You ask me to

following Your will
not mine.

**********

I can walk with You, for You are with me.

**********

“Noah walked with God.”

“Thus Noah did; according to all that God commanded him, he did.”

At The Door

 

Come to Me
and believe

find love and

The Breath Of Life

 

I was dust
when into me

You breathed the breath

just as man became
a living being

“And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being.”
