Finding Favor

 

With each flood
of pain and trouble

you can come
to Me

and rise up
with My favor

born out of My
suffering.

**********

You establish Yourself as our ark of favor, so we rise up in the midst of pain and suffering.

**********

“The LORD observed the extent of human wickedness on the earth, and He saw that everything they thought or imagined was consistently and totally evil. So the LORD was sorry He had ever made them and put them on the earth. It broke His heart. And the LORD said, ‘I will wipe this human race I have created from the face of the earth. Yes, and I will destroy every living thing – all the people, the large animals, the small animals that scurry along the ground, and even the birds of the sky. I am sorry I ever made them.’ But Noah found favor with the LORD. “

Genesis 6:5-8

Everlasting

 

 

I reign and am clothed
in majesty
I’ve girded Myself
with strength

I am from
everlasting
you can count
on Me.

And when the floods
rise up
and lift high
their voice

remember I
am mightier
than the waves
and all the noise.

A laid down life has an everlasting God.

“The Lord reigns , He is clothed with majesty; He has girded Himself with strength. You are from everlasting. The floods have lifted up their voice; the floods lift up their waves. The Lord on high is mightier than the noise of many waters. Your testimonies are very sure.” Psalm 93:1,2,3,4,5 NKJV

Standing in the Midst

“So the priests who bore the ark stood in the midst of the Jordan until everything was finished that the Lord had commanded Joshua to speak to the people, according to all that Moses had commanded Joshua; and the people hastened and crossed over.” Joshua 4:10
“Then it came to pass, when all the people had completely crossed over, that the ark of the Lord and the priests crossed over in the presence of the people.” Joshua 4:11

Once again God made the impossible possible for the children of Israel, as they crossed over the flooded Jordan on dry ground.

Thank You, Lord, for making a way for us to stand and walk through the flood of our situations that seek to knock us off our feet and keep us from You. And here’s a simple poem . . .

Through the Flood

Over the banks
dark waters rise
but You want us on
the other side
so You make a way
for us to cross
and no one drowns
no one’s lost.
