All things are delivered unto me of my Father: and no man knoweth the Son, but the Father; neither knoweth any man the Father, save the Son, and he to whomsoever the Son will reveal him.
Matthew 11:27 KJV
The fullness of the Father’s in the Son;
The power and the glory, love and grace.
All things that are delivered of the One
Belong to both eternal in each case.
The mind can’t comprehend or hope to know
The language of the heart that’s spirit born.
You must go to the cross, you must let go,
You must be broken, beaten, crushed and torn.
When you make Christ your Lord you’re dead to sin;
Until that time the door to Heaven’s sealed.
Give all you are to Jesus to begin
To understand this mystery revealed.
To know your Father you must know His Son;
To know the Son you both must be as one.
REMEMBER: Surrender your will, relinquish your heart, yield yourself to Christ right now.
With good will doing service, as to the Lord, and not to men
Ephesians 6:7 KJV
Whatever service you are tasked to do,
Your attitude reflects its quality.
If you work as for man your point of view
Will be to please a transient degree.
But if you act as if it were the Lord
Who will receive the fruit of your employ,
You’ll strive for excellence to one adored,
With love, devotion, gratitude and joy.
To be just good enough’s not good enough.
You represent the Lord of Lords today.
Your work now demonstrates more noble stuff
Than what can be produced then cast away.
With good will do your work as to the Lord,
And not to men, who seek their own reward.
REMEMBER: Whatever you do in the name of Christ, in the spirit of His love, He will sanctify. It doesn’t get any better than that!
I was cast upon thee from the womb: thou art my God from my mother’s belly.
Psalm 22:10 KJV
God’s known you since before your mortal birth,
When you were being knitted in her womb. (Psalm 139:13)
In all the universe He sets your worth,
And watches over you from crib to tomb.
He’s been your God since you were just a dream;
He called you to be His before day one.
Predestined to be one whom Christ redeem,
And given full free will from do til done.
So now you are His child forever more,
Becoming more like Christ each passing day.
He has such wondrous things for you in store
And loves you more than words could ever say.
The God that formed the world formed you as well.
You always have been His; in God you dwell.
Sing unto the LORD; for he hath done excellent things: this is known in all the earth.
Isaiah 12:5 KJV
Behold the many things the Lord has done:
He made the universe and all within;
He came to earth the essence of the Son;
He’s offered us salvation from our sin;
He had the prophets write His holy word;
He gave us with His love such blessed grace;
He promised us He’d come back undeterred;
He’s gifted us the Spirit to embrace;
He loves us more than we will ever know;
He formed us in His image from the start;
He carries us with Him and won’t let go;
He’s conquered death and hell; He’s done His part.
The things the Lord has done are excellent!
The earth and all that’s in it give assent!
Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men.
1 Corinthians 1:25 KJV
The wisdom of the ages gapes and drools
Compared to just a single word from God,
And all the things they teach in all the schools
Is nothing more than drivel dim and flawed.
If you should seek to know the mind of Christ,
Don’t listen to the babble of a sage.
The men who wrote the scriptures were sufficed
To listen to the Lord in every age.
Both men and empires boast about their might;
They strut across the stage of time to die,
And even when their strength is at its height
A bug can bring them down just passing by.
The man of God is neither fool nor weak
When he stands fast and turns the other cheek.
O LORD, thou art my God; I will exalt thee, I will praise thy name; for thou hast done wonderful things; thy counsels of old are faithfulness and truth.
Isaiah 25:1 KJV
O Lord, you are my God, my sovereign King,
Not only by creation but of grace.
The covenants You’ve made my soul shall sing.
My God, the Love You are I still embrace.
I will exalt you, Lord, I’ll praise Your name.
You’re Holy and perfection without end.
The heavens and the earth will long acclaim
The glory of creation You still tend.
Such wonders have You done I cannot count;
From atoms to the stars and in between.
Your counsels of the ages give account
Of faithfulness and truth we all have seen.
I celebrate You, God, both night and day!
I celebrate with all I do and say!
4 Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit.
5 And there are differences of administrations, but the same Lord.
6 And there are diversities of operations, but it is the same God which worketh all in all.
1 Corinthians 12:4-6 KJV
A breeze wafts through a window open wide;
The curtain shudders, papers flutter, too;
A candle light makes shadows dance and glide,
And all these things a single breeze can do.
The Spirit moves ten million souls and more
As preachers, teachers, missionaries, clerks,
To prophesy, to write, to mind the store;
We serve a single Master in our work.
Discretion, grace and patience all are gifts
Bestowed by just a single, holy God;
The Father’s love that heals, reveals, uplifts
Can resurrect the dead and leave us awed.
Such wondrous grace upholds the universe
And shows in all we do as we traverse.
Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above,
and cometh down from the Father of lights,
with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.
James 1:17 KJV
If you should start to doubt God’s love for you,
Consider all the gifts He showers down,
A Father giving freely kind and true,
His blessings good and perfect so abound.
God sacrificed His Son so you may live,
And now Christ lives in you so bold and pure.
If you repent your sins He will forgive,
God wants you to come Home, of this be sure.
This light that’s in you, God’s the Father of,
The essence of the Word that’s always been,
Unchanging and eternal source of love,
The DNA of Spirit makes you kin.
God’s gifts, too many for this pen to trace
Are found upon the cross and in His Grace.
Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this,
To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction,
and to keep himself unspotted from the world.
James 1:27 KJV
It’s vogue to say you’re not religious, yet
You don’t know what a true religion is.
Religion spells belief you don’t regret,
And turns it into action, not show biz.
A child without his parents needs your time
To sail him round the rocky cliffs of life.
Assist the lonely widow past her prime
Who cannot help herself through pain and strife.
Religion helps you set yourself apart
From all the rampant evil running wild.
To be unspotted from the world, you start
By acting just like Jesus, undefiled.
Believe all that you want, you won’t get far.
Religion is the strings on the guitar.
