by Your grace
I will arise
again

You are my light
shining ever
within.

**********

You are with me and bring me light and righteousness.

Quenching Fiery Darts

 

Lord help me tuck Your truth
inside of me

as I prepare
for each day

keeping my emotions in check
with Your righteousness

and by faith sending satan’s
barbs away.

**********

You are with me and provide me with all I need to face each day’s challenges.

**********

“Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness,”

“and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace,”

“above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one.”

Ephesians 6:14,15,16 NKJV

Glory In The Lord

 

In Your presence
there can be no glory
of anything of
the flesh

for its You
who give me wisdom
redemption and
righteousness.

**********

You are with me and are my glory.

**********

“For you see your calling brethren, that not many wise according to the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called.”

“. . . that no flesh should glory in His presence.”

“But of Him you are in Christ Jesus, who became for us wisdom from God – and righteousness and sanctification and redemption -“

“that, as it is written, ‘He who glories, let him glory in the LORD.’ “

1 Corinthians 1:26,29,30,31  NKJV   /    Jeremiah 9:34  NKJV

Sowing and Reaping

 

You will learn
to seek Me

and I will show
you how

to sow
in righteousness

upon your fallow
ground.

**********

Because You are with me, I can sow righteousness and reap mercy.

**********

“Sow for yourselves righteousness;
Reap in mercy;
break up the fallow ground.
For it is time to seek the LORD,
Til He comes and rains righteousness on you.”

Hosea 10:12 NKJV

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

My righteousness
endures forever

and My
salvation too

changing your deserts
into gardens

bringing forth glad
singing from you.

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
