Twists

 

Let me not practice
ignore or tolerate

anything in me
that’s not of You

keeping to
Your word and Your way

not twisting and turning
the Truth.

**********

I can respond with truth and love, for You are with me.

**********

“And I said. ‘Hear now, heads of Jacob and rulers of the house of Israel
Is it not for you to know and administer justice?’ “

“Then they will cry to the Lord, but He will not answer them; instead, He will even hide His face from them at that time [withholding His mercy] because they have practiced and tolerated and ignored evil acts.”

“Now hear this, you heads of the house of Jacob and rulers of the house of Israel, who hate and reject justice and twist everything that is straight . . .”

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.”

In The Spirit

 

We live and walk
in the Spirit

by which Jesus
set us free

to love and serve
one another

to wait and hope
eagerly.

**********

I can be Spirit led for You are with me.

**********

“Stand fast therefore in the liberty by which Christ has made us free, and do not be entangled again with a yoke of bondage.”

“For we through the Spirit eagerly wait for the hope of righteousness by faith.”

“For you brethren have been called to liberty; only do not use liberty as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another.”

“If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.”

Not For Ourselves

 

We are compelled
by Your love

knowing You died
for everyone

so we can live
not for ourselves

but for You
God’s Righteous Son.

**********

You are with me so I can live for You.

**********

“For the love of Christ compels us, because we judge thus: that if one died for all, then all died; and He died for all, that those who live should live no longer for themselves, but for Him who died for them and rose again.”

2 Corinthians 5:14-15 NKJV

Healing In His Words

 

Please speak Your words
of correction

as they are healing
to my life

for I know
You love me

and lead me to
what’s right.

**********

Because You are with me and love me, You speak words of correction to me, that I may be healed.

**********

“Now go, write it before them on a tablet, and note it on a scroll, that it may be for a time to come, forever and ever: that this is a rebellious people, lying children, children who will not hear the law of the LORD; who say to the seers, ‘Do not see,’ and to the prophets, ‘Do not prophesy to us right things; speak to us smooth things, prophesy deceits. Get out of the way, turn aside from the path, cause the Holy One of Israel to cease from before us.’ “. Isaiah 30:8-11 NKJV

“This is what the Sovereign Lord. The Holy One of Israel, says: ‘In repentance and rest is your salvation, in quietness and trust is your strength, but you would have none of it.’ ” Isaiah 30:15 NIV

“I charge you therefore before God and the Lord Jesus Christ, who will judge the living and the dead at His appearing and His kingdom: Preqch the word! Be ready in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and teaching. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables.” 2 Timothy 4:1-4 NKJV

“And we have known and believed the love that God has for us. God is love, and he who abides in love abides in God and God in him. There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment.” 1 John 4:16,18
