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

For the next two weeks I will be doing little poems inspired by The Power Of Quiet, a bible study written and taught by Aimee Walker ( http://www.onbecomingesther.com )and The Joyful Company

High Time

 

Now is the time
to awaken

to be clothed in our Lord
Jesus Christ

the night is far spent
and the day is at hand

to put on His armor
of light .

*********

You are with me and clothe me in light.

*********

“And do this, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep; for now our salvation is nearer than when we first believed.”

“The night is far spent, the day is at hand. Therefore let us cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armor of light.”

“But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, to fulfill its lusts.”

Romans 13:11,12,14 NKJV

It Is Advent: Come

 

Out of the stump
a shoot will grow

yes, a new Branch
bearing fruit will come

with the Spirit of the Lord
fully upon Him

and salvation for all
yes, for every one.

**********

You establish a new Branch.

“Out of the stump of David’s family will grow a shoot –
yes, a new Branch bearing fruit from the old root.
And the Soirit of the LORD will rest on Him –
the Spirit of wisdom and understanding,
the Soirit of counsel and might,
the Spirit of knowledge and the fear of the LORD . . .”

“In that day the heir to David’s throne
will be a banner of salvation to all the world.
The nations will rally to Him,
and the land where He lives will be a glorious
place.”

Isaiah 11:1-2,10

The One Who Saves

 

Your eyes shall not
search in vain
when they look
to Me

for I’m your Help
the One who saves
the Hope of your
glory.

You establish my salvation.

“Still our eyes failed us, watching vainly for our help; in our watching we watched for a nation that could not save us.”  Lamentations 4:17 NKJV

Sought Out

 

As Jerusalem is called
Sought Out
and the City
Not Forsaken

so shall you be
My redeemed
the hope holders of
My salvation.

You establish the name by which I shall be called.

“And they shall call them the Holy People, the Redeemed of the LORD; and you shall be called Sought Out, A City Not Forsaken.” Isaiah 62:12 NKJV

when you do

what is just

My covenant

joined to Me
tight.

My happiness is established in You.

Life’s Melody

 

My righteousness
endures forever

and My
salvation too

changing your deserts
into gardens

bringing forth glad
singing from you.

My life melody is established by You!

“But My salvation will be forever, and My righteousness will not be abolished. For the LORD will comfort Zion, He will comfort all her waste places; He will make her wilderness like Eden, and her desert like the garden of the LORD; joy and gladness will be found in it, thanksgiving and the voice of melody. ” Isaiah 51:6,3 NKJV

Inscribed

 

I’ve been given as
a covenant to you

even to the ends
of the earth

and your name’s inscribed
on My hands

that you may never
doubt your worth.

My name is accepted because of You, Jesus. ( One of the definitions of establish is to cause to be accepted .)

“I will also give You as a light to the Gentiles, that You should be My salvation to the ends of the earth . I will preserve You and give You as a covenant to the people . . .that You may say to the prisoners, ‘Go forth, ‘ to those who are in darkness, ‘Show yourselves.’ Sing, O heavens! Be joyful, O earth! And break out in singing, O mountains! For the Lord has comforted His people, and will have mercy on His afflicted. Yet I will not forget you. See, I have inscribed you on the palms of My hands . . .” Isaiah 49:6,8,9,13,15,16. 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
