With You To Save You


I will deliver you
and save you

the enemy
will not prevail

for I am with you
to redeem you

so evil’s grip
shall fail.

You establish my reassurance.

” ‘And I will make you to this people a fortified bronze wall; and they will fight against you, but they shall not prevail against you,’ says the LORD. I will deliver you from the hand of the wicked, and I will redeem you from the grip of the terrible.” Jeremiah 15:20,21 NKJV

All other help
will crumble

so you learn to look
to Me

for I am your

who fights for you

Jesus establishes my help.

“Woe to those who go down to Egypt for help, and rely on horses . . .but who do not look to the Holy One of Israel, nor seek the LORD! Now the Egyptians are men, and not God; and their horses are flesh, and not spirit. Both he who helps will fall, and he who is helped will fall down. So the LORD of hosts will come down to fight for Mount Zion and for its hill. Defending, He will also deliver it; passing over, He will preserve it.” Isaiah 31:1,3,4,5 NKJV

Days Completed


It was there
in Bethlehem
the time to deliver

and though there appeared
to be no room
He came
just the same.

A laid down life’s time will come.

“So it was, that while they were there, the days were completed for her to be delivered. And she brought forth her firstborn Son, and wrapped Him in swaddling cloths, and laid Him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn.” Luke 2:6,7 NKJV

Scattering Good


My righteous
will be delivered
out of the trouble
that you know

and I will add
increase to you
as your generosity
is sown.

A laid down life has God’s favor.

“The righteous is delivered from trouble. There is one who scatters, yet increases more; and there is one who withholds more than is right, but it leads to poverty. The generous soul will be made rich, and he who waters will also be watered himself. He who diligently seeks good finds favor.” Proverbs 11:8,24,25,27 NKJV

Then They Cried Out


When you cry out
in your troubles
and I come
to your rescue

what once was
will have no power
over you.

A laid down life is delivered out of its distresses.

“Then they cried out to the LORD in their troubles and He delivered them out of their distresses. And He led them forth by the right way. He brought them out of darkness and the shadow of death and broke their chains in pieces. He sent His word and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions.” Psalm 107:6,7,14,20 NKJV

Set your love
upon Me
make Me your
dwelling place

for I can
deliver you
and keep you
in all your ways.

A laid down life is covered by God and His truth.

“He shall cover you with His feathers. His truth shall be your shield and buckler. Because you have made the Lord your habitation, no evil shall befall you. For He shall give His angels charge over you, to keep you in all your ways. Because he has set his love upon Me , therefore I will deliver him.” Psalm 91:4,9,11,14 NKJV

“How Have I Wearied You?”

“Oh My people, what have I done to you?
And how have I wearied you?
Testify against Me.”  Micah 6:3

“For I brought you up out of the land of Egypt,
I redeemed you from the house of bondage;
And I sent before you Moses, Aaron and Miriam.”  Micah 6:4 NKJV

If I feel weary, it’s time to turn to God.

Thank You, Lord, for delivering me out of wearisome places and giving me rest.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

If I’m
feeling weary
and the opposite
of blessed

let me turn
to You, Lord
for deliverance
and rest.

God bless you and give you rest!

“Stretch out Your hand from above;
Rescue me and deliver me out of
great waters,
From the hand of foreigners,
Whose mouth speaks vain words,
And whose right hand is a right
hand of falsehood.”  Psalm 144:7-8

David repeats this statement twice in Psalm 144, not afraid of being politically incorrect.

Lord, please deliver me from all “foreign” thoughts, and the vain words and false actions that can follow.  And here is a simple poem . . .

Stretch Out Your Hand



Please rescue me
and deliver me

out of the
great waters

of foreign thoughts
and vain words

and the falsehood
that follows.

At The Waters Of Meribah

“You called in trouble, and I
delivered you;
I answered you in the secret place
of thunder;
I proved you at the waters of Meribah.”  Psalms 81:7

God is always working . . .even in the hard places.

Lord, I desire to listen for You and have faith more and more and more.  And here’s a simple poem . . .




I have heard of
your great trouble

and I will deliver
you in time

listen for Me
in the thunder

know in the desert
you are Mine.


“. . .the earth feared and was still,
When God arose to judgement,
To deliver all the oppressed of the earth.”  Psalms 76:8-9

To oppress means: 1.) to weigh heavily on the mind of; burden  2.) to keep down by the cruel or unjust use of authority  3.)  to cause physical or mental distress.

Lord, thank You for being so anti-oppressive.  And here’s a simple poem . . .




Though once weighed
down by your sins
and a cruel cross
I’ll never oppress you.

My burden is light
My yoke is easy
and I have come
to save you.
