Rightly Corrected

 

I will put an end
to the oppressors

but not
an end to you

for I’ll be with you
don’t be afraid

as I correct
what you do.

You establish my correction.

” ‘Do not fear, O Jacob My servant,’ says the LORD, ‘for I am with you; for I will make a complete end of all the nations to which I have driven you, but I will not make a complete end of you. I will rightly correct you, for I will not leave you wholly unpunished.’ “. Jeremiah 46:28 NKJV

Believe

 

Believe
and be established

be quiet
and do not fear

for these plans against you
shall not prosper

watch and see them
disappear.

Jesus establishes my belief.

“Take heed, and be quiet; do not fear or be faint hearted for these two stubs of smoking firebrands, for the fierce anger of Rezin and Syria, and the son of Remaliah. Thus says the Lord GOD: ‘It shall not stand nor shall it come to pass.’ If you will not believe, surely you shall not be established.” Isaiah 7:4,7,9 NKJV

But First

“Then she said, ‘As the Lord your God lives, I do not have bread, only a handful of flour in a bin, and a little oil in a jar, and see I am gathering  a couple of sticks that I may go in and prepare it for myself and my son, that we may eat it and die.'”  1 Kings 17:12

“And Elijah said to her, ‘Do not fear; go and do as you have said, but make me a small cake from it first, and bring it to me, and afterward make some for yourself and your son.'”  1 Kings 17:13

The widow was at the end of her rope when Elijah said, “but make me a small cake from it first.”

Lord, when things look the worst for us, we desire to listen for Your “but firsts”.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

But First

We pray for healing over and over
but nothing’s happening
so Lord, let us fast and pray
just one more time again.

When changes just aren’t coming
and we’ve hit a dead end
oh Lord, let us worship You
and thank You for where we’ve been.

When it looks like we should give up
there isn’t anything more to do
let us listen for the “but first”
that always comes from You.

 

Stay With Me

“Stay with me, do not fear. For he who seeks my life seeks your life, but with me you shall be safe.”  1 Samuel 22:23

David was speaking to Abiathar after Saul had his family killed.  But, it could have been Jesus speaking to us.

Lord, thank You for the eternal safety that only You can provide. And here’s a simple poem . . .

Eternal Safety

Stay with Me
and do not fear

I will protect
and draw you near

for the one who hates Me
hates you too

but he does not reign
indeed, I do.
