A Fire And A Flame

 

There shall be deliverance
and holiness

for those who trust
in Me

and I shall light
a fire in you

that burns
eternally.

**********

I shall know deliverance and holiness for You are with me.

**********

“But on Mount Zion there shall be deliverance, and there shall be holiness; the house of Jacob shall possess their possessions.”

“The house of Jacob shall be a fire, and the house of Joseph a flame . . .”

Obadiah 17,18

For Such A Time

 

For God
so loved the world

He gave His
only Son

for such
a time as this

let’s humble ourselves
and come.

**********

You establish times of deliverance.

***********

“Esther told Hathach to go back and relay this message to Mordecai: ‘All the king’s officials and even the people in the provinces know that anyone who appears before the king in his inner court without being invited is doomed to die unless the king holds out his gold scepter. And the king has not called for me to come to him for thirty days.’ So Hathach gave Esther’s message to Mordecai.”

“Mordecai sent this reply to Esther: ‘Don’t think for a moment that because you’re in the palace you will escape when all other Jews are killed. If you keep quiet at a time like this, deliverance will arise from some other place, but you and your relatives will die. Who knows if perhaps you were made queen for such a time as this?’ “

“Then Esther sent this reply to Mordecai: ‘Go and gather all the Jews of Susa and fast for me. Do not eat or drink for three days, night or day. My maids and I will do the same. And then, though it is against the law, I will go in to see the king. If I must die, I must die.’ So Mordecai went away and did everything as Esther had ordered him.”

Esther 4:10-17

He Delivers And Rescues

 

Just as I shut
the mouths of lions

and saved Daniel
from the den

I will deliver
and rescue you

over and over
again.

**********

You establish my deliverance and rescue.

“He delivers and rescues,
And He works signs and wonders
In heaven and on earth,
Who has delivered Daniel from the
power of the lions.” Daniel 6:27 NKJV

A Sign And A Witness

 

You will be
as an altar
as a pillar
to your Lord

a sign
and a witness
of your Mighty
Savior.

Jesus establishes my deliverance.

“In that day there will be an altar to the LORD in the midst of the land of Egypt, and a pillar to the LORD at its border. And it will be for a sign and for a witness to the LORD of hosts in the land of Egypt for they will cry to the LORD because of the oppressors, and He will send them a Savior and a Mighty One, and He will deliver them. ” Isaiah 19:19,20 NKJV

Troubled

imageflower petals

heavy

with beetles

 

These beetles seem very determined.

“And do not hide Your face from Your servant, for I am in trouble. Draw near to my soul and redeem it; deliver me because of my enemies. Reproach has broken my heart , and I am full of heaviness. ¬†Let Your salvation , O God, set me up on high.” ¬†Psalm 69:17,18,20,29 NKJV

Though you are troubled

I am near you

redemption and deliverance

are mine

for I comfort

the broken hearted

My salvation sets you

on high.

Delivered to Drive Out

“Who shall be first to go up for us against the Canaanites to fight against them?” Judges 1:1
“And the Lord said, ‘Judah shall go up. Indeed I have delivered the land into his hand’.” Judges 1:2
“And it came to pass, when Israel was strong, that they put the Canaanites under tribute, but did not completely drive them out.” Judges 1:28

The land was delivered, but the people in the land would need convincing.

Lord, I desire to drive out everything in my life that You have already delivered me from. And here’s a simple poem . . .

Of Deliverance

All You desire
for us is good

and You know
our human frailties

leading us not
into temptation’s hands

but out of sin’s
destructibilities.

Hey wonderful readers! Thank you for joining me and teaching me through your comments! I forgot to mention yesterday that it was my last post from Acts and we’ve moved back to the Old Testament, The Book of Judges. God bless you and your journey with Him!

Out of Oppression

“He brought them out, after he had shown wonders and signs in the land of Egypt, and in the Red Sea, and in the wilderness forty years.” Acts 7:36

Could times of oppression bring forth even more of His signs and wonders?

Lord, in the midst of our own situations, help us hold on to the miracle of You and Your deliverance. And here’s a simple poem . . .

Ripe For Wonders

Oppression comes from outside us
and pushes us to the ground

it laughs in the face of Jesus
and kicks us while we’re down

but it’s out of these places
that signs and wonders are seen

as His people cry out for deliverance
to the glory of their King.
