He Who Has An Ear

 

You listen
and hear
ready
to receive

for you’re
an overcomer
with faith
to believe.

Jesus establishes my hearing.

“He who has an ear let him hear what the Soirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes I will give some of the hidden manna to eat. And I will give him a white stone and on the stone a new name written which no one knows except him who receives it.” Revelation2:17 NKJV

Joy

 

John leaped for joy
inside the womb
knowing Jesus
was near

how blessed are we
when we believe
the Lord our God
so dear.

A laid down life leaps for joy at God’s nearness.

“For indeed, as soon as the voice of your greeting sounded in my ears, the babe leaped in my womb for joy. Blessed is she who believed, for there will be a fulfillment of those things which were told her from the Lord.” Luke 1:44,45 NKJV

Eternal

 

You were
born of Me
when you
believed

given
eternal life
My witness
received.

A laid down life is eternal.

“Whoever believes that Jesus is the Christ is born of God. This is He who came by water and blood – Jesus Christ . . .and it is the Spirit who bears witness, because the Spirit is truth. He who believes in the Son of God has the witness in himself. . .And this is the testimony: that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son.” 1 John 5:1,6,10,11 NKJV

Reasoning

source – Wikipedia

“And he reasoned in the synagogue every Sabbath, and persuaded both Jews and Greeks.”  Acts 18:4 NKJV

We have to be reasonable in order to reason.

Thank You, Lord, for giving us every reason to believe You and persuade others to as well.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

Lord, help us
reason
and patiently
persuade

as we
testify
that You are
the Way.

God bless you as you reason with others today!

I Believe

“Jesus heard that they had cast him out; and when He had found him, He said to him, ‘Do you believe in the Son of God?’ ”
“He answered and said, ‘Who is He, Lord, that I may believe in Him?’ ”
“And Jesus said to him, ‘You have both seen Him and it is He who is talking with you.’ ”
“Then he said, ‘Lord, I believe!’ And he worshiped Him.”  John 9:35-38 NKJV

Worshiping Him naturally follows believing Him.

Thank You, Lord, for opening my eyes to You.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

Only One
could open

my eyes
that didn’t see

blind from birth
now I worship You

reborn
now I believe.

God bless you as you believe and worship Him today!

The Book of Life

“And another book was opened, which is the Book of Life.”  Revelation 20:12

A friend shared that her sister-in-law’s dying wish was for her family and friends to hear the gospel.  As they gathered around her and she passed away, the pastor was called back to talk to them and everyone there believed.

Thank You, Lord, for continuing to add to Your Book of Life.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

The pen is ready
the ink well filled

to write down the names
of those who will

ask for forgiveness
and believe in Christ

finding themselves
in His story of Life.

God bless you as you live out the Life He gave you!

Longsuffering

“However for that reason I obtained mercy, that in me first Jesus Christ might show all longsuffering, as a pattern to those who are going to believe on Him for everlasting life.” 1 Timothy 1:16

Here are a few definitions of long suffering:

*quality of self-restraint in the face of provocation
*does not hastily retaliate or promptly punish
*opposite of anger
*does not surrender to circumstances or succomb under pressure
*endures lasting offense or hardship.

Lord, thank You for what You are doing in us despite of ourselves. And here’s a simple poem . . .

Enduring

Ever patient, loving kind
You aren’t quick to punish
full of mercy, You always work
on what is within us
for our good and the good
of others all around us
You use everything to show
just how much You’re for us.

A Convenient Time

“Now as he [Paul] reasoned about righteousness, self-control, and the judgment to come, Felix was afraid and answered, ‘Go away for now; when I have a convenient time I will call for you’.” Acts 24:25

There will never be a more convenient time than right now to believe Jesus.

Lord, please help those who hear of You today make a decision to follow You and not wait a minute longer. And here’s a simple poem . . .

How About Now?

Now is
the right time

this moment
is the best

to welcome Jesus
into our hearts

to accept His love
and rest.

Supposing

“(For they had previously seen Trophimus the Ephesian with him in the city, whom they supposed that Paul had brought into the temple.)” Acts 21:29
“And all the city was disturbed; and the people ran together, seized Paul and dragged him out of the temple; and immediately the doors were shut.” Acts 21:30

How often do I suppose things about others that simply aren’t true?

Thank You, Lord, for always being true and Someone we can believe. We desire, with Your help, to suppose something good about each other today.
And here’s a simple poem . . .

Supposing Something Good

Suppose someone thinks I’ve done a wrong
that I didn’t do
how much time and energy do I spend
to convince them it’s not true?

So to keep from more distractions
I will suppose only good things
trusting and believing first and foremost
in the glory of my King.

Seeing Beyond

“When He was still speaking, someone came from the ruler of the synagogue’s house, saying to him, ‘Your daughter is dead. Do not trouble the teacher’.” Luke 8:49
“But when Jesus heard it, He answered him, saying, ‘Do not be afraid, only believe, and she will be made well’.” Luke 8:50

Jesus doesn’t hear, see or respond like everyone else.

Lord, please give me eyes to see beyond what my mind thinks it knows. And here’s a simple poem . . .

According To Him

I’m handed her diagnosis
and my heart begins to sink

so I turn to Jesus
to see what He thinks

He answers that she is surely
healed in Him

but others all around her
need His healing within.
