In The Day That He Turns

 

My own righteousness
won’t save me
it is as
filthy rags

a pretense
and a slippery slope
a huge
red flag

let me turn
as the wicked
unto what
is true

and so live
forever
by the righteousness
of You.

You establish Your righteousness.

“Therefore you, O son of man, say to the children of your people: ‘The righteousness of the righteous man shall not deliver him in the day of his transgression; as for the wickedness of the wicked, he shall not fall because of it in the day that he turns from his wickedness . . . ‘ ” Ezekiel 33:12 NKJV

Not In Vain

 

In Me you shall
be justified

and in Me you
shall glory

for you were not
created in vain

but to live out My
salvation story.

My purpose is established in You.

“Rain down, you heavens, from above, and let the skies pour down righteousness; let the earth open, let them bring forth salvation . . .Who is God, who formed the earth and made it, who established it, who did not create it in vain, who formed it to be inhabited; I am the LORD and there is no other. I have not spoken in secret, in a dark place of the earth; I did not say to the seed of Jacob, ‘Seek Me in vain’; I, the LORD, speak righteousness, I declare things that are right. In the LORD all the descendants of Israel shall be justified, and shall glory.” Isaiah 45:8,18,19,25 NKJV

Our Resting Place

 

I am the Rod
from the stem of Jesse

the One upon whom
the Spirit rests

full of wisdom
and understanding

I judge the poor
with righteousness.

Jesus establishes our glorious resting place.

“There shall come forth a Rod from the stem of Jesse, and a branch shall grow out of his roots. The Spirit of the LORD shall rest upon Him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD.
His delight is in the fear of the LORD, and He shall not judge by the sight of His eyes, nor decide by the hearing of His ears, but with righteousness He shall judge the poor, and decide with equity for the meek of the earth . . .
And in that day there shall be a Root of Jesse, who shall stand as a banner to the people; for the Gentiles shall seek Him, and His resting place shall be glorious.” Isaiah 11:1,2,3,4,10 NKJV

An Overflow

 

Even from this
destruction

righteousness
will overflow

and I will
take away

the heavy burden
and yoke you know.

Jesus establishes what manner of yoke and burden I bear.

“For though your people, O Israel, be as the sand of the sea, yet a remnant of them will return; the destruction decreed shall overflow with righteousness. It will come to pass in that day that his burden will be taken away from your shoulder, and his yoke from your neck, and the yoke will be destroyed because of the anointing oil.” Isaiah 10:22,27 NKJV

wait and watch
wearing your praise
garments.
