Finding Grace

 

Finding grace
in Your sight

doesn’t entitle me
to more than the next

but means I have
the promise

of Your Presence
and rest.

**********

The One who gives the grace of His Presence and rest is with me.

**********

“Now therefore I pray, if I have found grace in Your sight, show me now Your way, that I may know You and that I may find grace in Your sight. And consider that this nation is Your people.”

“And He said, ‘My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.’ “

Exodus 33:13,14 NKJV

Enter

 

There remains
a rest

for those who have
believed

who’ve heard the gospel
preached

and gladly it
received.

**********

I can enter Your rest for You are with me.

**********

“For indeed the gospel was preached to us as well as to them, but the word which they heard did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in those who heard it.”

“For we who have believed do enter that rest, as He has said . . .”

“There remains therefore a rest for the people of God.”

Hebrews 4:2,3,9. NKJV

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

Facing It

 

Lord help me face
the reality

of where my sin
has led

repenting of
my own ways

waiting on You
instead.

***********

You are with me so I can face the truth of my situation.

***********

“In returning and rest you shall be saved; in quietness and confidence shall be your strength. But you would not.”

“And you said, ‘No, for we will flee on horses’ – “

Isaiah 30:15,16. NKJV

Sovereigness

what is coming

You always know
what happens next

and I can rest
in the blessing

of Your awesome
Sovereigness.

You establish what happens next.

Stand In The Way

 

Come stand here
with Me

and be guided unto
the old paths

where the good
good way is

so your soul can rest
and laugh.

You establish my paths.

“Stand in the ways and see, and ask for the old paths, where the good way is, and walk in it; then you will find rest for your souls.” Jeremiah 6:16 NKJV

Loving Kindnessess

 

I am surely
your loving Father

the Redeeemer
of your soul

who leads you
into the valley

giving you rest
when you need it so.

Loving kindnesses are established to me through You.

“I will mention the loving kindnesses of the LORD and the praises of the LORD, according to all that the LORD has bestowed on us. As a beast goes down into the valley, and the Spirit of the LORD causes him to rest, so You lead Your people, to make Ypurself a glorious name. You, O LORD, are our Father; our Redeemer from everlasting is Your name.” Isaiah 63:7,14,16 NKJV

When He Gives Rest

“Therefore he said to Judah, ‘Let us build these cities and make walls around them, and towers, gates and bars while the land is yet before us, because we have sought the LORD our God; we have sought Him and He has given us rest on every side.’  So they built and prospered.”  2 Chronicles 14:7

God’s rest meant Asa could build and prosper.

Lord, help me understand what You want me to do in the rest You give today. And here’s a simple poem . . .

A Seeking Rest                                                 

We may not all get
a physical vacation

we many not all be able
to have down time today

but we can relax
in what we’re doing

finding rest in seeking
Him always.
