Baptized

I have baptized you
in water

washing away
your sins

and immersed you in
My Spirit

placing Holy fire
within.

You establish Your Spirit within me.

“I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance, but He who is coming after me is mightier than I, whose sandals I am not worthy to carry. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire.” Matthew 3:11 NKJV

A Holy Permit

“But Jesus answered, “Permit it to be so now, for thus it is fitting for us to fulfill all righteousness.”  Matthew 3:15

John didn’t want to baptize Jesus.  It just didn’t seem right.

Jesus, thank You for all You “permitted to be so”, in order to fulfill the prophecy and promise of being our Savior and King.  Here’s a simple poem . . .

With His Permission

I can’t see the good
in what is happening
only the pain
misery and suffering
then You whisper to me
“permit it to be so”
and I can go on
knowing that You know.
