With Your Power And Might




I had posted a prayer request earlier. Please scroll down to see my previous post and please visit bro. Andy's site at "Insights From The Bible."

As I came home after dropping off my son at his school, I asked for the Lord to give me a new song to praise Him as I haven't played my guitar in a while. And He is always faithful to grant that request every time we ask from our heart. Within 5-10 minutes, He gave me a song.

I want to thank You Lord for all of Your blessings. For another day in our lives. Days that go by so fast, like sands slipping through fingers. But You constantly remind us, that when we seek You first, You are always there, wanting us to do that and wants to bless us in return. Thank You Lord for Your faithful love and mercy. Thank You that we can come boldly to Your throne of grace as You see Jesus' righteousness when we do so. You provide everything. And we don't deserve anything.

Forgive us for the times that we don't seek You. When we are lost in this world's busyness and find excuses not to be still and give time to see Your face. Please forgive us when we maximize our trials and forget that there is nothing impossible with You. Give us a heart surgery Lord. And help us continue to grow in Your grace and knowledge.

Yet, You continue to love us unconditionally. I love You Lord. I pray for You to fill all of Your children's hearts with Your Spirit. So that we die everyday and let Jesus in us increase. Give us the boldness to share the Good News. Give us discernment and protect us at all times O Lord. Thank You. Praise Your Holy Name. I have witnessed the power of me just saying Your mighty Name "Jesus" and the enemy cowers.

Thank You that we have Your mighty weapons and power to be able to fight. Yes, we will stand. Even in these evil days. Because You never leave us nor forsake us. Glory be to You O Lord forever and ever. I pray all of these in Jesus' Mighty Name. Amen.


With Your Power and Might
[song by: Daddy and rcubes 2/1/10


This road was not easy for me

Sometimes, I got weak and weary

When I fell, I felt like surrendering

‘Til You came along and reached out to me


Chorus:


And this child fights with Your power and might

I don on Your armor and know that I can stand

With Jesus, I can claim a total victory

Yes, I’ll fight…with Your power…and might


This road is never easy, now I know

But the truth is that You’re there beside me

You fill me up with grace and mercy

You lived for God but you died for me


[Repeat Chorus]

Fading:


….only Jesus

…..Only with Jesus

  5. Dear Sister,

    I am being touched so much today by so many readings and then I come here and Oh My My My My My. You touch me to the very depths of my being. God is doing some very, very powerful things in this blogging community...yes He surely is. I don't know what to say, I'm left speechless with such love and fullness in my mind and heart here and your song, so absolutely beautiful from the Lord. He gives me melodies while praying in tongues and gives you words, wouldn't it be wonderful to combine it all? Oh what a powerful ever living majestically beautiful God we have, we serve, we love, we adore, we worship, we obey...we live for.

    Thank you my sweet sister. Thank you. I love you so much.

    Big Hugs,
    Alleluiabelle

  8. I never know which lines you post will stick out like a shining light in my eyes and heart.
    I was sure it was the Armor of God, for I am well acquainted with that, the battle against darkness, and how it is done effectively.

    In a talk with God, I was exasperated with no pastors preaching Ephesians 6:10-20 anywhere anymore. I lamented to Him: "Why don't You inspire the pastors of today to preach this vital message?"

    His respoinse was immediate, and to the point, regarding Spiritual Warfarers. He said:
    "It takes very little of my Holy Spirit to defeat ALL the power of the evil spirit.
    I only need a few".

    And in that moment I understood why there is little preaching on the Armor and how to employ it. It is so powerful that God "only needs a few".
    Be a "few". Learn it and ask Him how to employ you in your new duds you wear. He will.

    But that was not the line to attract me here this day. This one was:

    " I pray for You to fill all of Your children's hearts with Your Spirit. So that we die everyday and let Jesus in us increase."
    ~~~Rosel

    So many believe that once you become Christian, well,....hoitee toitee you!
    The job is done.
    Some come to Christ in a lightning bolt moment (St. Paul comes to mind).
    But most folks I know come in a marinated period of time. They grow daily and also falter.

    Recently, I read of a castigation on Christians who divorce. The thrust was that the number of Christians who divorce is in line with the number of nonChristians who divorce. Therefore, they were not really Christian.
    This is a lie.

    Christians sin just about every day.
    There is no caste system of Christians as in India.
    There is no First Class to Third Class system of Christian as on the Titanic, although all of us ride the Titanic called Earth, and dance to the music, as the Earth sinks daily.

    "Die every day and let Jesus increase" is an awesome line above.
    It is the equivalent to jumping into the lifeboats, and having enough boats for all as we leave Titanic Earth.

    Yes our lives are a wisp as was recently discussed. But within that wisp, you can see the whole thing before it gradually fades.
    The fading is due to partaking in a new dimension, for the entire wisp.

    We do the same as we increase in Christ.
    The old wisp fades and the invisible wisp of our lives, becomes visible in His Kingdom.

    There is plenty of room at the table for sinners. Jesus always made sure of that.
    If not, I would be doomed.
    There would be no lifeboat for me.

    We were saved at the Cross, but told to "work out our salvation". Rosel's line above states the same truth oh so beautifully.

    Though Rosel makes music with God via guitar, we do the same with our lives.
    Musicians on the Titanic did too; they played "Nearer my God to Thee"....a wisp song.

    And Nearer my God to Thee, is the same as Christ INCREASING in me.
    What a lovely line to ponder.

  11. In the new birth, the Holy Spirit supernaturally gives us new spiritual life by connecting us with Jesus Christ through faith. Or, to say it another way, the Spirit unites us to Christ where there is cleansing for our sins, and he replaces our hard, unresponsive heart with a soft heart that treasures Jesus above all things and is being transformed by the presence of the Spirit into the kind of heart that loves to do the will of God (Ezekiel 36:27).

  12. Such a glorious gift dear sis, love you.

  13. In every communion, we eat the bread of life and drink His blood. Though disguised as bread and wine, or perhaps grape juice yet to ferment, the part going to our body is insignificant. The body dies.

    But a spiritual nourishment occurs at all communion. Those who partake at the table feed and nourish our spirit, which lives eternally. He told us that is so.

    "Jesus said to them, "I tell you the truth, unless YOU eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, YOU have no life in you."
    ~~~John 6:53 (my emphasis)

    Partaking in communion puts eternal life spiritually into the spirit of us all who eat and drink.

    IKE has told the truth.
    Communion is the method.
    Partake, and live eternally with the Bread of Life, the Vine!

    The last line of the post says the same:

    "This road is never easy, now I know

    But the truth is that You’re there beside me

    You fill me up with grace and mercy

    You lived for God but you died for me

  15. Love the song you posted, as well as your prayer. I could feel its power reaching down to me, across the miles.

    Well, in the spirit, there is no distance.

    I feel very close to you dear Rosel.

    I have also visited Andy's blog, and will lift them up in prayer.



    Love

The Attacker (5/15/09)

The sun was just peeking from the Eastern skies. Ephesians 6:12 [37 kb]


Out in the prison’s yard, some huge Sheriff’s buses were illuminated by the soft glow coming from the lights all over from the tall lamp posts. Their engines were turned on, warming up, before the buses would take the inmates to the different courts where they would have their trials.


Orange-uniformed men were lined up in pairs, joined together with handcuffs and chained, forming a long line. They already had their breakfast and had their morning medications prior to going to courts. Some were fidgeting, as they waited to board those buses.


All of a sudden, all hell broke loose! Two men were engaged in a fight, using weapons they made secretly for a while. Deputies called for help on the radio, both for custody back-up and medical staff, as well.


When the air was cleared and the other inmates were secured, one man was down on the floor. He sustained multiple gashes but two of them were deep. One cut was vertically etched from his left ear going down to the jaw line. The other dangerous cut was horizontal on his left neck, close to the jugular vein. Pool of blood dripped all over the floor. Holding his bleeding neck, he was pointing at the other inmate few feet away, being guarded by the other deputies.


The other man being accused was not hurt. There were no lacerations nor any other signs of trauma. He was obviously very agitated as he was being questioned by those deputies, while the medical staff started treating the other man on the floor. They cleaned the wounds and controlled the bleeding. That man was sent to the nearby hospital.


When the investigation was finalized, it turned out to be that the “downed man who was accusing the other inmate” was the attacker and the other one who didn’t have injury was the one attacked. The deputies found out that it was the second attempt to attack the unhurt man. Both attacks on him failed. He was well-prepared after the first attempt on him, that when the second attempt was done, he was able to defend himseld and ended up injuring his attacker severely.


[Source: Life Application Bible]:


We also have an “accuser of the brethren.” Satan and his army of demons are the enemies of God and of everything good.


“Because God’s children are human beings – made of flesh and blood – Jesus also became flesh and blood by being born in human form. For only as a human being could he die, and only by dying could he break the power of the Devil, who had the power of death.” –Hebrews 2:14


Because of what Jesus had done [dying on the cross], we, who live in constant fear of death shouldn’t be afraid anymore. Jesus had freed us from that fear so we can live for Him. When we belong to God, we know that death is only the portal that leads into “eternal life”. [“Thank You Lord!].


Paul warned us, too that we also battle against the evil forces of Satan, who is a vicious fighter. But to be able to withstand their attacks, we must depend on God’s strength and use every piece of His armor. We face an army whose goal is to defeat Christ’s church. When we believe in Christ, they become our enemies. They will try any device to turn us away from the Lord.


Fear not! For God has provided His supernatural power to defeat Satan and his army, through His Holy Spirit within us. So, arm yourselves with God’s armor.


Let us be strong in the Lord's mighty power. Let's put on His whole armor to resist the enemy's attacks: put on the sturdy belt of truth and the body armor of God's righteousness. For shoes, put on the peace that comes from the Good News, so that we are well-prepared. We will need faith in every battle as our shield to stop the fiery arrows aimed by Satan and his army. Let us put on salvation as our helmet, not forgetting the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God. Let's pray at all times, on every occasion in the power of the Holy Spirit. We must stay alert and be persistent in our prayers for all Christians everywhere. [Ephesians 6:10-18].
