My Alliance

 

May the alliance
that I keep

be the one I have
with You

the Rock on whom
I can depend

the Strength
to see me through.

***********

You are with me and I can depend on You.

“Woe to those who go down to Egypt for help, and rely on horses, who trust in chariots because they are many, and in horsemen because they are very strong, but who do not look to the Holy One of Israel, nor seek the LORD!” Isaiah 31:1 NKJV

“Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.” Matthew 11:28-30 NKJV

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

Facing It

 

Lord help me face
the reality

of where my sin
has led

repenting of
my own ways

waiting on You
instead.

***********

You are with me so I can face the truth of my situation.

***********

“In returning and rest you shall be saved; in quietness and confidence shall be your strength. But you would not.”

“And you said, ‘No, for we will flee on horses’ – “

Isaiah 30:15,16. NKJV

day long.

Not In Vain

 

Be steadfast
immovable

knowing it’s
not in vain

this work
you do for Me

for the glory of
My name.

**********

You are with me and in what I do.

**********

“Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not in vain in the Lord.”

1 Corinthians 15:58 NKJV

Edification

 

Let all things be done
for edification

all teaching, tongues
and revelations

so all who come
will be convinced

that God is here
within our midst.

**********

You are with me so that I can bring edification.

**********

“And then the secrets of his heart are revealed, and so, falling down on his face. He will worship God and report that God is truly among you.”

“How is it then, brethren? Whenever you come together, each of you has a psalm, has a teaching, has a tongue, has a revelation, has an interpretation. Let all things be done for edification.”

1 Corinthians 14:25,26. NKJV

Just As He Pleased

 

We are
the body of Christ

and members
individually

given gifts
by the same God

for manifestation
and edifying.

***********

You are with me and have placed me within the body of Christ with specific gifts for the profit of all.

**********

“There are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit.”

“There are differences of ministries, but the same Lord.”

“And there are diversities of activities, but it is the same God who works all in all.”

“But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to each one for the profit of all.”

“But now God has set the members, each one of them, in the body just as He pleased.”

1 Corinthians 12:4,5,6,7,18. NKJV

The Other’s Well-Being

 

Let me not seek
just my own good

but think of the well being
of others

knowing what may be
okay for me

won’t always edify my
sisters and brothers.

**********

I can put others first because You are with me.

**********

“All things are lawful for me, but all things are not helpful; all things are lawful for me, but all things do not edify.”

“Let no one seek his own, but each one the other’s well-being.”

1 Corinthians 10:23,24 NKJV

By All Means

 

O Lord may I
In some way

relate to each one
I meet

that they might be
encouraged

and in You
be reached.

**********

I can share You with others, because You are with me.

**********

“I have become all things to all men, that I might by all means save some.”

“Now this I do for the gospel’s sake, that I may be partaker of it with you.”

1 Corinthians 9:22,23 NKJV

Star.

**********
