God’s Invitation

 

May I turn to You
over and over

instead of
running back

so I may know
the freedom of salvation

the rest of You fighting
on my behalf.

**********

You are with me and always invite me to return to You.

**********

” ‘Woe to the rebellious children, ‘ says the LORD, ‘who takes counsel but not of Me, and who devise plans, but not of My Soirit, that they may add sin to sin; who walk to go down to Egypt, and have not asked My advice, to strengthen themselves in the strength of Pharoah, and to trust in the shadow of Egypt!’ “. Isaiah 30:1-2 NKJV

“And Moses said to the people, ‘Do not be afraid. Stand still and see the salvation of the LORD, which He will accomplish for you today. For the Egyptians who you see today, you shall see again no more forever. The LORD will fight for you, and you shall hold your peace.’ “. Exodus 14:13,14 NKJV

“For thus says the Lord GOD, the Holy One of Israel: ‘In returning and rest you shall be saved; in quietness and confidence shall be your strength. But you would not.’ ” Isaiah 30:15 NKJV

I Free You This Day

 

I will
remove the chains

that have been
on you

so you can do
all that I

ever ask
you to.

You establish my freedom to serve you.

“And now look, I free you this day from the chains that were on your hand. If it seems good to you to come with me to Babylon, come, and I will look after you. But if it seems wrong for you to come with me to Baylon, remain here.” Jeremiah 40:4 NKJV

Best Help Ever

 

Happy are you
when you praise Me
when you hope
and trust in Me

for I keep truth
forever
and set
your heart free.

A laid down life has the BESt HELP EVER.

“Praise the LORD, O my soul! While I live I will praise the LORD.” Happy is he who has the God of Jacob for his help, whose hope is in the LORD his God, who made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them; who keeps truth forever, who executes justice for the oppressed, who gives food to the hungry. The LORD gives freedom to the prisoners.” Psalm 146:1,2,5,6,7 NKJV

Drawn To Jesus

“Then all the tax collectors and the sinners drew near to Him to hear Him.” Luke 15:1
“And the Pharisees and scribes murmured, saying, ‘This man receives sinners and eats with them’.” Luke 15:2

I marvel at how Jesus – so holy, pure, divine – could draw the exact opposite kind of folks (like me) to Himself . . .and continue to draw them to this day.

Oh Lord, help us receive all those You came for, in Your same Spirit and love. And here’s a simple poem . . .

Well Received

The crowds were forming
bigger than the Pharisees drew

His words were flowing
in a manner that grew

hope and life from what
was crushed and pressed

that gave forgiveness,
freedom and love’s rest.

Prisoners of War

“When the King of Arad, the Canaanite, who dwells in the South, heard that Israel was coming on the road to Atharim, then he fought against Israel and took some of them prisoners.” Numbers 21:1
“So Israel made a vow to the Lord, and said, ‘If You will indeed deliver this people into my hand, then I will utterly destroy their cities’.” Numbers 21:2
“And the Lord listened to the voice of Israel and delivered up the Canaanites . . .” Numbers 21:3

To this day, Israeli soldiers are targeted to be taken as prisoners. Their enemies know how valuable their sons and daughters are and so use them to barter with and make demands.

Thank You Lord, for coming to set the captives free. And here’s a simple poem . . .

Freedom Fighters

Can I be okay
while there are those imprisoned
by politics and poverty
addictions and fears?
Teach me how to
reach out with You, Lord
to let them know
freedom is here.

For He Is Holy

” For I am the Lord your God. You shall therefore sanctify yourselves and you shall be holy for I am holy.” Leviticus 11:44

We can’t be holy apart from God.

Thank You, Lord, for being a Holy God who makes a way for us to be holy with You. And here’s a simple poem . . .

Holy Human

His Holiness
gives us freedom
from our humanness
while still contained
in all its frailties.

No Trespassing

“It is a trespass offering: he has certainly trespassed against the Lord.” Leviticus 5:19

My daughter and I used to go mushroom hunting in the woods behind a field at the end of a lane. Only one year we noticed a “no trespassing” sign when we came back out. Now we no longer go there.

Thank You, Jesus, for the freedom I have in You to go and do so much. In light of that, help me to ever more quickly obey Your no’s without looking for loopholes. And here’s a simple poem . . .

Posted

If no one sees
and I don’t get caught
I begin to think maybe
it’s alright
until that “NO TRESPASSING”
sign You posted
gets stuck within
my heart.
