Heirs Of Hope

 

We’ve been justified
by His grace

heirs to the hope
of eternal life

though we too
we’re once deceived

now the Spirit’s poured on us
through Jesus Christ.

**********

I am an heir to hope for You are with me.

**********

“For we ourselves were also once foolish, disobedient, deceived . . .”

“But when the kindness and the love of God our Savior toward man appeared “

“not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us, through the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit “

“whom He poured out on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Savior,”

“that having been justified by His grace we should become heirs according to the hope of eternal life.”

Titus 3:3,4,5,6,7. NKJV

The Spirit Of Grace

 

I will destroy
all the nations

that come against
Jerusalem

pouring out
My Spirit of grace

so you know who
I really am.

**********

I can pray for my nation, for You are with me.

**********

“It shall be in that day that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem.”

“And I will pour on the house of David and on the inhabitants of Jerusalem the Spirit of grace and supplication; then they will look on Me whom they have pierced ; they will mourn for Him as one mourns for his only son, and grieve for Him as one grieves for a firstborn.”

By My Spirit

 

Not by might
nor by power

but by My Spirit
it shall be done

as mountains turn
into plains

with each small step
begun.

**********

You are with me and turn my mountains into plains.

**********

“This is the word of the LORD to Zerubbabel: ‘Not by might nor by power, but by My Soirit,’ says the LORD of hosts.”

“Who are you, O great mountain? Before Zerubbabel you shall become a plain.”

“For who has despised the day of small things? For these seven rejoice to see the plumb line in the hand of Zerubbabel.”

The Answer

 

The answer to godliness
isn’t found

in the world’s
systems and rules

but in the Word
made flesh

believed, received
Holy Spirit proved.

**********

I can live a godly life for You are with me.

**********

“It is quite true that the way to live a godly life is not an easy matter. But the answer lies in Christ, who came to earth as a man, was proved spotless and pure in His Spirit, was served by angels, was preached among the nations, was accepted by men everywhere and was received up again to His glory in heaven.”

1 Timothy 3:14 TLB

Rejoice In Christ

 

We are the
circumcision

who worship God

having no confidence

“For we are the circumcision, who worship God in the Spirit, rejoice in Christ Jesus, and have no confidence in the flesh . . .”

Rooted And Grounded

 

O Lord strengthen us
on the inside

by Your Holy Spirit
and might

filling us with
Your fullness

to know Your love
it’s depth, its height.

**********

I am rooted and grounded in Your love, for You are with me.

**********

“. . . that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man, “

“that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love,”

“may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height – to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.”

Only One

 

There is only
one gospel

one Jesus
to believe

only one
Spirit

to regard
and receive.

**********

You are with me and expose what’s false.

**********

“But I fear, lest somehow, as the serpent deceived Eve by his craftiness, so your minds may be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.”

“For if he who comes preaches another Jesus whom we have not preached, or if you receive a different spirit which you have not received, or a different gospel which you have not accepted – you may well put up with it.”

2 Corinthians 11:3,4 NKJV

Just As He Pleased

 

We are
the body of Christ

and members
individually

given gifts
by the same God

for manifestation
and edifying.

***********

You are with me and have placed me within the body of Christ with specific gifts for the profit of all.

**********

“There are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit.”

“There are differences of ministries, but the same Lord.”

“And there are diversities of activities, but it is the same God who works all in all.”

“But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to each one for the profit of all.”

“But now God has set the members, each one of them, in the body just as He pleased.”
