The Goodness Of God

 

Circumcision is of
the heart and Spirit

not just according
to the flesh

for the goodness of God
leads us to repentance

and His praise is ever
on our lips.

**********

You are with me and lead me to repentance.

**********

“Or do you despise the riches of His goodness, forbearance, and longsuffering, not knowing that the goodness of God leads you to repentance?”

“For He is not a Jew who is one outwardly, nor is circumcision that which is outward in the flesh; but he is a Jew who is one inwardly and circumcision is that of the heart, in the Spirit, not in the letter; whose praise is not from men but from God.”

Romans 2:4,28 NKJV

For His Name

 

With power
according to the Spirit

by His resurrection
from the grave

we receive grace
for obedience

to the faith and honor
of His name.

**********

You are with me and give me grace to obey.

**********

“Jesus Christ our Lord, declared to be the Son of God with power according to the Spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead.”

“Through Him we have received grace and apostleship for obedience to the faith among all nations for His name, among whom you also are the called of Jesus Christ. “

Romans 1:4,5,6 NKJV

Receive

 

Let it be to me
as You have said

I receive You
oh I receive

the gift of You
growing inside

I believe You
oh I believe.

**********

You establish the gifts of receiving and conceiving.

**********

“In the sixth month of Elizabeth’s pregnancy, God sent the angel Gabriel to Nazareth, a village in Galilee, to a virgin named Mary. She was engaged to be married to a man named Joseph, a descendant of King David. Gabriel appeared to her and said, ‘Greetings, favored woman! The Lord is with you!’ “

“Confused and disturbed, Mary tried to think what the angel could mean. ‘Don’t be afraid, Mary,’ the angel told her, ‘for you have found favor with God! You will conceive and give birth to a son, and you will name him Jesus. He will be very great and will be called the Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give Him the throne of His ancestor David. And He will reign over Israel forever; His Kingdom will never end!'”

“Mary asked the angel, ‘But how can this happen? I am a virgin.’ “

“The angel replied, ‘The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. So the baby to be born will be holy, and He will be called the Son of God. What’s more, your relative Elizabeth has become pregnant in her old age! People used to say she was barren, but she has conceived a son and is now in her sixth month. For the word of God will never fail.’ “

“Mary responded, ‘I am the Lord’s servant. May everything you have said about me come true.’ And then the angel left her.”

Luke 1:26-38

And I will not hide My face from them any more; for I shall have poured out My Spirit on the house of Israel, ‘ says the Lord GOD.” Ezekiel 39:27,28,29 NKJV

your ruined places
planting what’s been
desolate

of sacrifices
filling the cities
by My Spirit.

You establish me as a holy sacrifice.

“Then the nations that are left all around shall know that I, the LORD, have rebuilt the ruined places and planted what was desolate. I, the LORD, have spoken it, and I will do it. I will also let the house of Israel inquire of Me to do this for them: I will increase their men like a flock. Like a flock offered as holy sacrifices, like the flock at Jerusalem on its feast days, so shall the ruined cities be filled with flocks of men. Then they shall know that I am the LORD. “.
