His Promise, My Confidence.

Your promise still stands, great is Your faithfulness. I’m still in Your hands, this is my confidence; You’ve never failed me yet.

– ‘Do it again’ by Elevation Worship

 

 

This is my confidence…

But am I confident?

How positive am I that my Lord and Saviour would never fail me?

100%.

But like all humans, we err.

But God makes a way when there seems to be no way.

And we turn to flesh instead of the Spirit.

We revel in the carnal, feeding it till the carnal overflows.

And the spirit gets a drip drop.

Nothing like the pitter patter of the rain as it falls.

Oh no. Nothing like that.

 

Where do you think you are hiding, my child?

I see you.

In the darkness?

I see you.

In your sin?

I see you.

 

But you don’t see me.

I’m am here!

I’m right in front of you!

Why won’t you open your eyes?

Is the plank in your eye so large that you cannot see?

Are you blinded by fleshly cataracts that block your feeble flesh from seeing the one and only King… The True God?

 

Stop, my child.

Just stop.

Give your pains to me.

Give your sorrows to me.

I can heal you.

I can make you new.

I can make you whole again.

 

Just give me you.

Let me live in you.

Let me work through you.

 

Just surrender.

Do not doubt.

Do not fear.

Do not worry.

For I am making all things new.

I will never fail you nor forsake you.

I am always here with you.

Look! My hands are outstretched, but you do not reach out for me.

I’m always reaching out for you but you give up before you’ve even started.

Do you believe?

I believe in one God

Our Saviour and Lord

Jesus Christ

Who I might

Add died one night

For us

On the cross

For our sins

That have been

Erased.

 

He suffered

And was condemned

Tortured to no end

Tried and crucified

Oh my

When Jesus was sentenced to die

For us

On the cross

For our sins

That we won’t let go

Instead we show

Our response of the word no

By living in the world

And not in His word

Which we all have heard

And deferred

So that we can be worldly

And not Holy.

 

How many of you are like Judas

Who betrayed Jesus

The King of Jews,

All you had to do was choose.

 

But wait, your life you’re going to have to lose.

Whose?

 

Oh, not you?

Then I wonder who?

Only Your Love

Your love is like no other

Nothing else satisfies

It flows through the deepest waters

It rests on mountains high

– “Only Your Love” by Kari Jobe

Your love, Lord, is eternal

It’s mystical, it’s faithful

When we are faithless

Our lives – a mess

This life – a test

Our lives – it’s best

We turn to you

The only True

Living God

Oh Lord

We’re nothing but dogs

Not worthy to sit at your table

Not worthy to be in your presence

For we are only but peasants

Pleading to be able to please the prince of peace

Living like priests but we’re nothing paupers.

But still you love us God

These lowly hearts of ours

That we give to others instead of to you

Over you we choose the idols and booze

Partying and lose-

Ing our selves in the carnal

Denying the Spiritual

But wait just a minute now.

You can run all you want

And no, God won’t hunt

You down

But he’s waiting…

How long will you run from the inevitable?

From His purpose for your life

That you now live in vain

Oh what a pain

That you think this is a game.

Oh please, don’t give me that excuse

That’s so over used

It’s not the right time

I’m to young to live for God

There’s nothing I can do for the Lord

Hmm… then I wonder why you were born?

Remember

Be not afraid o thine precious soul
I am thinking of you
I am always with you
I will never give you what you cannot bear
I will never put you through something you cannot persevere.
Remember the good times when I took away your pain
Remember the bad  times and the victories that you gained.
I put you through these trials
I put you through your pain
Just know that they were never in vain
Your experiences are witnesses
To what I can do.

Philippians 4:13 says “I can do everything through Him who strengthens me.”

James 1:5 says “If you want to know what God wants you to do- ask Him and He will gladly tell you.”

“Used To Be”

Stand up for yourself, my friend
Breakthrough from those chains binding you
It may be a long, hard and strenuous journey
But with enough faith, you can persevere
If you lack faith and courage
And the convition to be yourself
Then
I wish you luck
I hope for that day you would find your inner strength
And see the truth of the situation
Your life is your life
Not mine
The most I can do is try to persuade you on what I think is best for you
Only you know what’s best for yourself
If you’re unsure, then think about it for a while
Then leave it alone
Trust me, the answer will come to you when you least expect it
Don’t let yourself become a victim to the benefit of others
If you need their opinion, that’s fine
But don’t let them order you around like you’re a messenger
And then get thrown away like last week’s toilet paper roll
If it’s something you feel you have to do then fine
But that day will come when you will snap like a twig accidentally stepped on
And people will feel your hidden wrath
They will feel your anger
Then will regret every wrong deed they ever did to you
Then
They will either
Remain the same
Go through the same cycle they did you, just with someone else
Or
They will apologize
Beg for your forgiveness
Grovel at your feet
And they will never be the same to you
So if you’re up for being used
Then that’s you
But eventually
That “to be used”
Will become “used to be”
And you will be free.
