The Way Of Truth

 

You will be led by
the way of truth

into all I ask
of you

and each time
My word’s confirmed

you will worship
anew.

**********

I am led by the way of truth, for You are with me.

**********

“And I bowed my head and worshiped the LORD, and blessed the LORD God of my master Abraham who led me in the way of truth to take the daughter of my master’s brother for his son.”

“Here is Rebekah before you; take her and go and let her be your master’s son’s wife, as the LORD has spoken.”

“And it came to pass, when Abraham’s servant heard their words, that he worshiped the LORD, bowing himself to the earth.”

Genesis 24:48,51,53 NKJV

but obeyed when I asked
you to.

Psalm 32 Selah

 

I will not keep
my sin from You

but in You I
will hide

confessing all
my wrongs to You

letting forgiveness
inside.

**********

I can pause and be blessed by Your forgiveness, for You are with me.

**********

“Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered.”

“I acknowledge my sin to You, and my iniquity I have not hidden. I said, ‘I will confess my transgressions to the LORD; and You forgave the iniquity of my sin’.” Selah

“You are my hiding place; You shall preserve me from trouble; You shall surround me with songs of deliverance.” Selah

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

Blessed To Be A Blessing

 

I will send you blessings
upon blessings

you will be full
of Me

and never lack
a gift to give

from now through
eternity.

**********

You establish me as a blessing.

“The LORD had said to Abram, ‘Leave your native country, your relatives, and your father’s family, and go to the land that I will show you. I will make you into a great nation. I will bless you . . .and you will be a blessing to others. I will bless those who bless you and curse those who treat you with contempt. All the families on earth will be blessed through you.”
“So Abram departed as the LORD had instructed and Lot went with him. Abram was seventy-five years old when he left Haran. He took his wife, Sarai, his nephew Lot, and his wealth – his livestock and all the people he had taken into his household at Haran – and headed for the land of Canaan. When they arrived in Canaan, Abram traveled through the land as far as Shechem. There he set up camp beside the oak of Moreh. At that time the area was inhabited by Canaanites. ”
“Then the LORD appeared to Abram and said, ‘I will give thIs land to your descendants.’ And Abram built an altar there and dedicated it to the LORD, who had appeared to him.”
Genesis 12:1-7

This Is Jesus

 

I am Jesus
I am He

“Hosanna to the Son of David! Blessed is He who comes in the name of the LORD! Hosanna in the highest!

Blessed Are You

 

Blessed are you
when you hunger and thirst
when you mourn
and in spirit are poor

for you shall be filled
and comforted
and the kingdom of heaven
is yours.

You establish the kingdom of heaven for me.

“Blessed are the poor in spirit , for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted. Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be filled.” Matthew 5:3,4,6 NKJV

Gracious

 

Blessed are you
as you wait on Me

walking in My
mercy

for I listen to
your every cry

and answer you
graciously.

Jesus establishes my waiting.

“Therefore the LORD will wait, that He may be gracious to you; and therefore He will be exalted, that He may have mercy on you. For the LORD is a God of justice; blessed are all those who wait for Him. 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

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

A laid down life is highly favored and blessed.

“And having come in, the angel said to her, ‘Rejoice, highly favored one, the Lord is with you; blessed are you among women.'” Luke 1:28 NKJV
