As promised, another blog post. And this time it only took a month and not a year. I call that success! Haha!
For this post I feel a free write poem is the right choice. The word "Rise" came to mind. So here goes... a poem on the spot, from the perspective of God speaking.
Rise and shine, my child,
for the Son is up,
up and on the move,
moving to bring the new day.
Rise and shake,
shake off the worries,
worries and weariness of the past,
the past that is behind you.
Rise and be clothed,
be clothed in my kingdom Spirit,
my kingdom Spirit of righteousness,
of righteousness, peace and joy.
Rise and feast,
feast on my Word,
my Word of truth,
truth that brings freedom and life.
Rise and speak,
speak my decrees,
my decrees and promises,
promises which I always fulfill.
Rise in my strength,
my strength and my victory,
my victory and my authority,
my authority which is absolute.
Rise in my identity,
my identity which is your identity,
your identity through the blood,
the blood of the Risen Son.
Wow, thank you Lord for a quick and powerfully loaded poem!
Scripture references this reminds me of:
The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. “The Lord is my portion,” says my soul, “therefore I will hope in him.”
2 Corinthians 5:17
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.
“Remember not the former things, nor consider the things of old. Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert."
For the kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and drinking, but of righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit
I delight greatly in the Lord;
my soul rejoices in my God.
For he has clothed me with garments of salvation
and arrayed me in a robe of his righteousness
So Jesus said to the Jews who had believed him, “If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples, and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”
You are my portion, Lord;
I have promised to obey your words.
I have sought your face with all my heart;
be gracious to me according to your promise.
Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path.
Set a guard, O Lord, over my mouth; keep watch over the door of my lips!
So shall my word be that goes out from my mouth; it shall not return to me empty, but it shall accomplish that which I purpose, and shall succeed in the thing for which I sent it.
Truly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be taken up and thrown into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says will come to pass, it will be done for him.
So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.
Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father.
No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.
2 Peter 1:3
His divine power has given us everything we need for a godly life through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness.
1 John 5:4-5
for everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith. Who is it that overcomes the world? Only the one who believes that Jesus is the Son of God.
And I could go on, but shall stop there for now. Be blessed!
