Receive

 

Let it be to me
as You have said

I receive You
oh I receive

the gift of You
growing inside

I believe You
oh I believe.

**********

You establish the gifts of receiving and conceiving.

“In the sixth month of Elizabeth’s pregnancy, God sent the angel Gabriel to Nazareth, a village in Galilee, to a virgin named Mary. She was engaged to be married to a man named Joseph, a descendant of King David. Gabriel appeared to her and said, ‘Greetings, favored woman! The Lord is with you!’ “

“Confused and disturbed, Mary tried to think what the angel could mean. ‘Don’t be afraid, Mary,’ the angel told her, ‘for you have found favor with God! You will conceive and give birth to a son, and you will name him Jesus. He will be very great and will be called the Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give Him the throne of His ancestor David. And He will reign over Israel forever; His Kingdom will never end!'”

“Mary asked the angel, ‘But how can this happen? I am a virgin.’ “

“The angel replied, ‘The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. So the baby to be born will be holy, and He will be called the Son of God. What’s more, your relative Elizabeth has become pregnant in her old age! People used to say she was barren, but she has conceived a son and is now in her sixth month. For the word of God will never fail.’ “

“Mary responded, ‘I am the Lord’s servant. May everything you have said about me come true.’ And then the angel left her.”

Luke 1:26-38

I Believe

“Jesus heard that they had cast him out; and when He had found him, He said to him, ‘Do you believe in the Son of God?’ ”
“He answered and said, ‘Who is He, Lord, that I may believe in Him?’ ”
“And Jesus said to him, ‘You have both seen Him and it is He who is talking with you.’ ”
“Then he said, ‘Lord, I believe!’ And he worshiped Him.”  John 9:35-38 NKJV

Worshiping Him naturally follows believing Him.

Thank You, Lord, for opening my eyes to You.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

Only One
could open

my eyes
that didn’t see

blind from birth
now I worship You

reborn
now I believe.

God bless you as you believe and worship Him today!

Sometimes Love Waits

“This sickness is not unto death, but for the Glory of God, that the Son of God may be glorified through it.” John 11:4
“Now Jesus loved Martha and her sister and Lazarus.” John 11:5
“So, when He heard that he was sick, He stayed two more days in the place where He was.” John 11:6

Sometimes love waits.

Thank You, Lord, for teaching me about a love that submits to what is greater than it. And here’s a simple poem . . .

But For The Glory of God

Jesus didn’t run right to them
the moment that they called
but waited knowing God
had a better plan for all
that though they would grieve
and misunderstand
God’s glory would wipe it away
when Lazarus breathed again.

From God

“If this man were not from God, He could do nothing” John 9:33

I can’t do anything either, without God.

Thank You, Lord, for giving us work to do with You. And here’s a simple poem . . .

Sent For This

Blind from birth
but now he sees

the people murmur
how can this be

as Jesus does
all He’s sent to do

with another now believing
the Son of God is true.
