Commit Our Souls To Him

 

Let us who suffer
according to God’s will

commit our souls
to Him

in doing good
as to a faithful Creator

who suffered
for our sin.

**********

“For Christ also suffered once for sins, the just for the unjust, that He might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh but made alive by the Spirit . . .”

“Therefore let those who suffer according to the will of God commit their souls to doing good, as to a faithful Creator.”

1 Peter 3:18, 4:19 NKJV

For He Will Save

 

Jesus

from our sins

whose Kingdom
never ends.

Day By Day

 

I will give you
day by day

all you need
to live

such as forgiveness
for your sins

as others you also
forgive.

You establish Yourself as my Daily Bread.

“Give us day by day our daily bread. And forgive us our sins, for we also forgive everyone who is indebted to us.” Luke 11:3,4 NKJV

Arise And Walk

 

I am forgiven
I am healed

You have the power
Your heart’s revealed.

I’ve been forgiven
I’ve been healed

no longer can Truth
be concealed.

My forgiveness and healing is established by You.

“For which is easier , to say, ‘Your sins are forgiven you’, or to say, ‘Arise and walk’? But that you may know that the Son of Man has power on earth to forgive sins – then He said to the paralytic, ‘Arise, take up your bed, and go to your house.’ And he arose and departed to his house.” Matthew 9:5,6,7 NKJV

As White As Snow

 

Come now and let us
reason together
so you learn to do good
and plead for the widow

though your sins are like scarlet
I will forgive you
and they shall be made
just as white as the snow.

Jesus establishes willingness.

“Learn to do good; seek justice, reprove the oppressor; defend the fatherless, plead for the widow. “Come now, and let us reason together”, says the LORD, “though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall be as wool.” If you are willing and obedient, you shall eat the good of the land . . .” Isaiah 1:17,18,19 NKJV

Washed

 

I love you
and have washed away
your sins with
My own blood

making you
priests and kings
to My
Father God.

I am established in God’s Kingdom by the blood of Jesus.

“To Him who loved us and washed us from our sins in His own blood, and has made us kings and priests to His God and Father, to Him be glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen.” Revelation 1:5,6 NKJV

Confessing

 

Do not try
to cover your sins
but come and
bring them to Me

turning away
from whatever it is
finding forgiveness
and mercy.

A laid down life confesses sin.

“He who covers his sins will not prosper, but whoever confesses and forsakes them will have mercy.” Proverbs 28:13 NKJV

Arise

220px-Stretcher_miloufs

 

“I say to you, arise, take up your bed and go your way to your house.”  Mark 2:11 NKJV

“And immediately he arose, took up the bed, and went out in the presence of them all, so that all were amazed and glorified God, saying, ‘We never saw anything like this.”  Mark 2:12 NKJV

I once was paralyzed by my sin.

Thank You, Lord, for forgiving me and healing me so that I can walk with You!  And here’s a simple poem . . .

We’ve never
seen anything like this

who is it
who does these things?

He who forgives sins
and heals paralytics

is none other than
Jesus our King!

God bless you as you arise to meet Him today!

Clearly Evident

“Some men’s sins are clearly evident, proceeding them to judgment, but those of some men follow later.”

“Likewise, the good works of some are clearly evident, and those that are otherwise cannot be hidden.”  1 Timothy 5:24-25

I am encouraged that while sins may be hidden at times, good just can’t be.

Lord, may those who are hurting and lost clearly see the evidence of Your goodness today.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

Unhidden

source – neurodojo.blogspot.com

You are a good God
Who does wondrous things
and all that You do through us
testifies and sings

clearly evidence
unable to be stopped
that You are Who You are
Your goodness rising to the top.

A Filth Filter

“Then the children of Israel who had returned from the captivity ate together with all who had separated themselves from the filth of the nations of the land in order to seek the LORD God of Israel.”  Ezra 6:21

When I lived in “Me Land”, a lot of garbage began piling up.

Thank You, Lord, for making a way for us to be separated from the filth of our sins.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

A Must

source – standardtimespress.org

I must seek You
for You are life

and allow my sins
to be crucified with Christ

separating from the filth
of who I used to be

called into the light
of eternity.
