“Overcomers” (re-post)

“Overcomers”

As the sun rises, a brand new day dawns
We are held securely in the Master’s Hands
We cannot ever be separated from Him
We are kept safely in His sovereign plans

Darkness and light are both alike to Him
Nothing can conceal itself from His sight
Christ has clothed us in His righteousness
We are more than overcomers in His might

I John 5:4 (NASB)
4 For whatever is born of God overcomes the world; and this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith.
5 Who is the one who overcomes the world, but he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God?

“King of Kings”

“King of Kings”

Let us surrender ourselves unto Him
Everlasting God Who Reigns on High
He fashioned the stars and planets
Architect of heaven, earth, and sky

All things exist by His Mighty Hand
Ancient of Days, before time began
Master Artist; Magnificent Wonders
Divine Providence; Sovereign Plan

Pure and Holy; A Consuming Fire
His Ways and Thoughts inscrutable
Deigned to reveal Himself to man
King of Kings, eternal, immutable

Nehemiah 9:6 (NASB)
You alone are the LORD. You have made the heavens, The heaven of heavens with all their host, The earth and all that is on it, The seas and all that is in them. You give life to all of them And the heavenly host bows down before You.

“Joyful Song”

“Joyful Song”

God will meet all of your needs
When darkness descends upon you
His glory lights your way
He guards and guides you
With His steadying, gentle Hand
Even when it seems all is lost
He holds You in the palm of His hand
His love, mercy, and grace
Surround and protect You always
Rest in Him, dear ones
For He will soon lead us Home
We will worship, praise, and enjoy Him
For eternity and beyond
His joyful song in our hearts forever

Psalms 100:2 (NASB) Serve the LORD with gladness; Come before Him with joyful singing

“No Coincidence”

“No Coincidence”

No coincidence, luck, or chance
Lofty thoughts of human invention
Nothing occurs by happenstance
So it is with this in mind I mention

It is God who holds our future
We’re not victims of nebulous fate
Yet at times, we don’t understand
Upon Him we must learn to wait

He is the beginning and the end
Far greater than us, outside time
Proud fools who dare to defy Him
Face the wrath of judgment divine

His Spirit calls to searching hearts
Have eyes to see and ears to hear
His return comes swiftly, quickly
Earth’s warning signs are clear

Keep looking up, His Holy Saints
Quick as lightning, He’ll appear
Eternity future with Him awaits
A welcome departure from here

I Corinthians 1:27-30 (NASB)
27 but God has chosen the foolish things of the world to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to shame the things which are strong,
28 and the base things of the world and the despised God has chosen, the things that are not, so that He may nullify the things that are,
29 so that no man may boast before God.
30 But by His doing you are in Christ Jesus, who became to us wisdom from God, and righteousness and sanctification, and redemption

Psalms 2:1-4 (NASB)
1 Why are the nations in an uproar And the peoples devising a vain thing?
2 The kings of the earth take their stand And the rulers take counsel together Against the LORD and against His Anointed, saying,
3 “Let us tear their fetters apart And cast away their cords from us!”
4 He who sits in the heavens laughs, The Lord scoffs at them.

“He Is Sovereign”

“He Is Sovereign”

God the Father answers our prayers
Many times in ways we cannot see
For He is sovereign; we are not
And only He knows what will be

His thoughts are not our thoughts
They are infinitely above our own
He is good always; all of the time
He does not leave us to go it alone

He views us through His Son Jesus
Made spotless in His righteousness
By His Spirit, we have been sealed
And He sanctifies us unto holiness

I Chronicles 29:11 (NASB)
Yours, O LORD, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the victory and the majesty, indeed everything that is in the heavens and the earth; Yours is the dominion, O LORD, and You exalt Yourself as head over all.

Galatians 3:26 (NASB)
26 For you are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus.

“Wondrous God Of Grace”

“Wondrous God Of Grace”

Darkness intensifies; the oppression is strong
The combat escalates between right and wrong
Jesus rescued us out of the deep pit we were in
He shattered the shackles of death and of sin

He is calling His people to watch and to pray
Be prepared for His coming; any time of day
Something looms on the horizon we can’t see
But He is in control; He knows what will be

We are safe in His arms; trusting in His care
Nothing catches the Sovereign One unaware
He created the heavens; put the stars in place
Author of Salvation; Wondrous God of Grace

Psalms 86:10 (NASB)
For You are great and do wondrous deeds;
You alone are God.

Isaiah 40:26 (NASB)
Lift up your eyes on high
And see who has created these stars,
The One who leads forth their host by number,
He calls them all by name;
Because of the greatness of His might and the strength of His power,
Not one of them is missing.

“Sovereign Hand”

“Sovereign Hand”

What security we possess
For all eternity we are Yours
Even in our deepest distress
Your mercy upon us pours

Our future You alone can see
Beyond what happens today
Because You live we are free
We walk with You every day

To serve You is our delight
We are under Your command
Let us stand for what is right
Rest in Your Sovereign Hand

Psalms 16:8-9 (NASB)
8 I have set the LORD continually before me; Because He is at my right hand, I will not be shaken.
9 Therefore my heart is glad and my glory rejoices; My flesh also will dwell securely.
