Poetry in Motion: How God Sees His Children

Do you believe, truly believe, that God sees us as His masterpieces, His precious work of art? I pray that you do, because accepting that truth enables us to see ourselves in such a different light, His light. In John 17:23  Jesus prays to the Father that we, His children, would recognize and know that God the Father loves us just as God the Father loves and sees Christ Jesus. God the Father sees His Son as Perfect, Blameless, Beloved, Righteous, Well Pleasing, Delighted In. ALWAYS WELCOME IN HIS PRESENCE! And this is how He sees those of us who trust in Christ Jesus’ Beloved Name, not because of our works or grand efforts, lest any man should boast, (Ephesians 2:8-9) but because of our faith in the finished work of His Son for us on the Cross. Ephesians 2:10 says, “For we are His workmanship (Poiema), created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.” The Greek word used for “Workmanship” is actually “Poiema,” from which we …

Hope In The Midst of Trouble: A Word and Song

But I will hope continually, And will praise You yet more and more. My mouth shall tell of Your righteousness And Your salvation all the day, For I do not know their limits. I will go in the strength of the Lord God; I will make mention of Your righteousness, of Yours only.” ~Psalm 71:14-16 nkjv (PSALM 71) I had the blessed privilege to read the above verses through a scripture reading plan for Hope, found though my Bible app. When I read the verses, the Light and Love of the Savior immediately flooded my heart and soul. Instantly, Our Heavenly Father began to show me great revelation concerning these few words of hope. If you take the time to read through all of Psalm 71, you will find that the author is going through a season of tribulation, YET he makes the decision that he is going to: Continue to keep his Hope in Father God Continue to sing His praises Continue to Focus on Him and Him alone Continue to remember that it …

The Power of Songs of Praise

Hello all! I just wanted to take this moment to encourage you all with not just a song of worship, but with the powerful weapon that we have in worship through song, coming from our very lips and hearts, no matter if they are out of tune or not appreciated by those sitting next to us. Often times we allow men (to the delight of the enemy) to deter us from opening our mouths in song. What is the big deal with singing to our Heavenly Father? Well there is power in it that shifts the atmosphere. It is through song that our hearts are encouraged, that we remember what our God has done for us in the past, is presently doing and will do. It is through song that we find strength, and that the enemy is evicted from our atmosphere, for our God inhabits our praise. Ephesians 5:18-21 says, “…18And do not get drunk with wine, for that is dissipation, but be filled with the Spirit, 19speaking to one another in psalms and hymns and …
