Psalm 46 Selah

 

Only when I
stop striving

can I see how
magnificent You are

how present You
are with me

no need to fear
at all.

**********

I can pause and be still in the midst of my circumstances, for You are with me.

**********

“God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.”

“Therefore we will not fear, even though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea;”

“though its waters roar and be troubled , though the mountains shake with its swelling.” Selah

“The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge.” Selah

“Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations. I will be exalted in the earth.”

Psalm 46:1,2,3,7,10 NKJV

Psalm 21 Selah

 

I have joy in
Your strength, O Lord

in Your salvation
I am blessed

I asked for life
and You have given it

full of Your mercy
and goodness.

**********

I can pause and be thankful, for You are with me.

**********

“The king shall have joy in Your strength, O LORD; and in Your salvation how greatly shall he rejoice!”

“You have given him his heart’s desire, and have not withheld the request of his lips.” Selah

“For You meet him with the blessings of goodness; “

“He asked life from You and You gave it to him -“

“For the king trusts in the LORD, and through the mercy of the Most High he shall not be moved.”

Psalm 21:1,2,3,4,7. NKJV

Psalm 20 Selah

 

With every obstacle
and challenge

you can praise Me
and give thanks

assured of My
great love for you

that saves and won’t
turn back.

**********

“May the LORD answer you in the day of trouble; may the name of the God of Jacob defend you;”

“may He send you help from the sanctuary, and strengthen you out of Zion;”

“may He remember all your offerings, and accept your burnt sacrifice.” Selah

“Now I know that the LORD saves His anointed; He will answer him from His holy heaven with the saving strength of His right hand.”

“Some trust in chariots, and some in horses; but we will remember the name of the LORD our God.”

“They have bowed down and fallen; but we have risen and stand upright.”

Psalm 20:1,2,3,6,7,8. NKJV

My High Hills

 

Oh Lord God
You are my strength

for I am so
so weak

and You cause me to walk
on all my challenges

with the sureness of
deer’s feet.

**********

You are with me so I have the strength and sureness to move forward.

**********

“The Lord God is my strength; He will make my feet like deer’s feet, and He will make me walk on my high hills”

This One Is Peace

 

We shall abide
in His greatness

for this One is
our peace

You who are peace and great to the ends of the earth are with me.

Refuge

my Safe Place

for I know You
are oh so strong

and full of
love and grace.

**********

You are with me as my Safe Place and I can pour out my heart to You.

**********

“Trust in Him at all times, you people; pour out your heart before Him; God is a refuge for us. Twice I have heard this; that power belongs to God. Also to You, O Lord, belongs mercy . . .”

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

I Will Raise Them

 

Behold I will raise
you up

out of the place
which you’ve been sold

for I am your
shelter and strength

the Lord your God
who never lets go.

**********

You are with me and raise me up from where I don’t belong.

**********

“Also the people of Judah and the people of Jerusalem you have sold to the Greeks, that you may remove them far from their borders.”

“Behold, I will raise them out of the place to which you have sold them.”

“But the LORD will be a shelter for His people,
And the strength of the children of Israel.”

Joel 3:6,7,16 NKJV
