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?
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.
Beautiful and breathtaking; a Homecoming near
The trump sound announcing that Jesus is here
What joy will capture us in the air as we rise
Precious faith is made reality before our eyes
We’ll be changed; transformed from inside out
No longer plagued by sin; nor fear and doubt
Those dead in Christ will precede our ascent
Joined to bodies glorified from fragile tents
Death expunged, victory; hello, not goodbye
Mind of Christ, clarity; no more asking why
That once obscured; will appear clear to view
Lives once shattered; will forever be as new
1 Thessalonians 4:16-17 (NKJV)
16 For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first.
17 Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord.
My Lord, for as long as I live
I will bow down before You
For as long as I have breath
I will worship and adore You
For as long as I am on this earth
I will testify of Your faithfulness
You saved me by Your sacrifice
You justified me in righteousness
I think of the future; what will be
And I lift up Your Name in praise
Just a stone’s throw from eternity
Just one heartbeat away, always
Romans 5:1-2 (NASB)
1 Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ:
2 By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.
Just as it was in the days of Noah
Is exactly how the world is today
God’s name is being blasphemed
As each person goes their own way
Jesus gave His life a ransom for sin
He came to save that which was lost
God’s mercy and grace to fallen man
God’s Son sacrificed upon the Cross
His salvation is a gift offered to all
For those who are willing to receive
A miracle is wrought within the heart
Faith given to understand and believe
Don’t leave this earth without the Savior
Regret will be your keepsake for eternity
You’ll live forever; either in Heaven or Hell
Question is, where will your destination be?
John 3:16-18 (NASB)
16 “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.
17 “For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world might be saved through Him.
18 “He who believes in Him is not judged; he who does not believe has been judged already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
As I praise and worship You
In mind, heart, and spirit
You put a smile on my face
And fill me with a quiet, internal, peaceful stillness
You lift the veil from my eyes
You are my delight
My desires become Yours
To serve you, and to be faithful
In willing and joyful obedience
As I bask in your extravagant and unconditional love,
Safely tucked away in the shadow of Your wings,
Resting in Your arms eternally
Psalms 91:1 (NASB)
He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High
Will abide in the shadow of the Almighty.
To My Brethren; My Dear Family in Christ
May He fill your thoughts with His peace
May you take comfort in His loving arms
All your fears and anxieties in Him cease
May you rise up in His infinite strength
May He meet the longings of your heart
May He bestow His blessings upon you
Grace and goodness to you He imparts
As you travel with Him along this road
Though you can’t see around the bend
He’s your sufficiency in your weakness
He’ll uphold you right to the very end
Ephesians 1:18-19 (NASB)
18 I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened, so that you will know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints
19 and what is the surpassing greatness of His power toward us who believe.
Surviving in a world lost; besieged by sin
Is done through the power of Jesus Christ
His sheep aren’t left to their own devices
They are His own; purchased with a price
Prayer is a privilege; a priceless resource
Delighting in Him; aligning with His will
A personal, eternal relationship with Him
Is a longing in their hearts only He can fill
John 15:14-15 (NASB)
14 Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself unless it abides in the vine, so neither can you unless you abide in Me. 15 I am the vine, you are the branches; he who abides in Me and I in him, he bears much fruit, for apart from Me you can do nothing.
Psalms 37:4-5 (NASB)
4 Delight yourself in the LORD; And He will give you the desires of your heart. 5 Commit your way to the LORD, Trust also in Him, and He will do it.
John 5:14 This is the confidence which we have before Him, that, if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us.
God knows what’s in my heart and mind
It’s Him in prayer daily I’ll seek and find
From the minute I wake, until day’s end
He’s gracious to me; My Faithful Friend
Those times when fear and faith collide
He’s my Deliverer, and in Him I’ll abide
If I rely on myself, I’ll stumble and fall
If I’m trusting in Him, He’ll handle it all
He’ll never leave me; of this I’m aware
I’m kept in His loving and tender care
My fears melt away, for He’s all I need
In Him, I’ve true peace and rest indeed
Psalm 18:2 (NASB) The LORD is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer, My God, my rock, in whom I take refuge; My shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.
Philippians 4:6-7 (NASB) 6 Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. 7 And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
For once and for always; forever we have been saved
So extraordinary a price for us that Jesus Christ paid
He made Himself a guilt offering for us at the Cross
Perfect, Holy Lamb slain; He willingly paid the cost
While once we were dead in sin, He raised us to life
Brought us out of darkness into His Everlasting Light
Broken, brittle hearts; He fashioned completely new
Blind, dark minds; He opened to the purity of Truth
Once we were searching; we found our hope in Him
Once we were empty; now His Spirit resides within
Hebrews 7:25 (NASB)
Therefore He is able also to save forever those who draw near to God through Him, since He always lives to make intercession for them.
John 10:27-29 (NASB)
27 My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me;
28 and I give eternal life to them, and they will never perish; and no one will snatch them out of My hand.
29 My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of the Father’s hand.
Lord, I am safe and secure in You
Let Your Word be my sole delight
That I may think upon Your Truth
From morning through the night
Renew my mind; Light my way
Plant Your Word deeply within
You are the Potter; I am the clay
Liberated from the power of sin
In You, I have an oasis of peace
Abiding in You, I have my rest
All my worries to You I release
In You, I am happy and blessed
Psalms 37:4 (NASB)
Delight yourself in the LORD;
And He will give you the desires of your heart.
Psalms 119:35 (NASB)
Make me walk in the path of Your commandments,
For I delight in it.
Psalms 1:1-2 (NASB)
1 How blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked,
Nor stand in the path of sinners,
Nor sit in the seat of scoffers!
2 But his delight is in the law of the LORD,
And in His law he meditates day and night.
