Faithful Father, Strengthen My Inner Man

Peace and grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be to you and your house

Precious saints of God Almighty, called to God by the Spirit of Christ, be not weary but hold fast to that which is true. Remember the new water in which you came. The new life in which by faith in Jesus our Lord, you have been born again. Remember the promises of our King, remember His ways and walk by them. Do not grow weary, but by faith, work the works of Christ remembering the times. We are not alone. I pray the strength of the Spirit of truth be multiplied to you. I pray we are growing in all the fullness of our God, Jehovah and, that we are wise to do what is pleasing and right in the sight of God. Be then good to each other, speaking what is true by the grace that has been given of you in a measure as a gift from the Father of our Lord.

Amen.

Pray before the Lord our God, remembering all saints everywhere. May there be unity in Christ’s One body, and might we see the glory of God here in the land of the living. Be full of hope that others might turn and return to the Lord their Maker. I have seen and heard of the spread of the goodness. Peace to you in Christ Jesus.

 


For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, that he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man; that Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; and to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fullness of God.

Ephesians 3:14-19

Forever He will Be

The Chief Corner Stone

Glory in the Lord your God maker of all things! Blessed is he whose God is the Lord. For forever Jesus Christ himself is the chief corner stone. The stone, the Rock, the head, holding together the building fitly framed together, as we grow unto a holy temple in the Lord our God.

Make your praise loud! Boast mightily in the Lord God of all creation. Let His praises be made known in the congregation. Let His people rejoice in the Lord their God, who at countless times have shown forth His great mercies and faithfulness unto the just and unto the unjust.

Marvelous are your ways my God o’ King of kings. Great is your faithfulness. And rich are you my Lord, rich are you in mercy. Be thou our God and we your people. Let us call upon your name in truth. Clothe us in your garments of praise and thanksgiving. Teach us your ways my Lord that we might walk in the Light of truth and holiness and your peace. Make us to know and understand the hope of your calling that our hearts might not turn from you. Blessed O’ Lord my God, blessed are they who trust in your goodness, who depend upon your help. They shall not be made ashamed. I, oh God of my life, I would have lost heart unless I had believed that I would see the goodness of you, here in the land of the living. Set forth your ways before your people. Let us be thou released from all that burden us and stand against us that we would not gather to worship you in the spirit and in the truth according to thy word Most High. Set us free from every stronghold over and in us. Your people must be made to worship you. For what other name can man be saved? and who other is the maker of man? and to whom is the might of our praises due? You, my Father in heaven, you alone are God and there is not one other. No, not one.

Bless us my God, and let not the building of your holy temple be stopped, but give unto us all the power and wisdom and strength and resources and courage to finish the task which you lay upon the hearts of your people. And let the name of your Son, Jesus the Christ, be exalted in the nations, in our homes, in the church, and in the mouths of them whose God is the Lord. May the hearts of our children not turn from you, but may they come unto the full understanding of your salvation and render themselves unto your mighty and gracious hand, O’ Lord our Father.

Amen. Glory.


For through Him we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father. Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God. And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone, in whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord. In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit.

EPHESIANS 2:18-22

 

 

God is true 2

Nothing but the Blood

Nothing

Nothing can destroy sin. My sin. Your sin. Nothing. Nothing at all. Nothing can save us from the very committed sin. Nothing but, Jesus’ blood. The Blood of Jesus, the Christ of the world, Jesus, the Christ for the world. Jesus, our (yours and mine’s) Christ. Savior.

Savior, save me. Save him. Save her. Save them. Save us. Savior, save. Save us O’ dear God. Save us from yourself. Save us from ourselves. For you are great and terrible God and, you are good and wealthy in mercy. You have endured O’ great One. You have endured, suffering long for us and with us. Your blood you did not spare. Your hope you did not withhold. Your truth you bare. Your peace you spread. O’ you who are right and know no wrong, righteous and merciful King, be strong in those who call out to you, that we might stand in the joy of humility and truth, peace and assurance. Jesus, thank you. My King and my God. Thank you with all that I am. It is not much but it is my all. My everything because of your kindness and your wanting of me. You love me Lord. You love me and you save. Glory. Glory God Most High. Your name is above every name that has ever been named. Above all else O’ Great One God of the heavens, above all else be worshiped, and glorified. For in you I have my life and, apart from you, outside of you, I am dead even now and would have begged not to have been. For where can life be where you are not? Where is the grasp of hope apart from your arm?

Bless you my God, bless you with your very own hand of righteousness and awe in strength, O’ dreadful One.

 


Wrought

My ways are before my God. He knows my going out and my coming in. None of my steps are hidden from Him. He knows all my dealings. All things are plain before Him and are done in His Light. Might He wrought us, shaping our form as we humbly and joyfully be before Him.

 

Hosanna O’ God who is true!


“It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man. It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in princes.”

Bear the Burden Together

It’s said the summer months are many a things. Among it, “moving season.” 

 

My brother and his family is set to dive into packing, stacking, and taping what seems like a thousand boxes. I’m exaggerating – a bit, but still they’ll have plenty to organize come mid July when they’re schedule to move.

Moving is difficult.

This past weekend I helped move my elderly uncle of 80 years. It was, I thought, going to be simple, short and steady. It was neither. Regardless of his few things, it was a lot of work, heavy lifting and mental labour just to pack and unpack the truck much less carrying everything. What I estimated would take 3 to 4 hours took 7 to 8 hours of sweat, speed (we had to get the truck back on time) and shear strength (thank you my Lord). Including myself there where only four of us, and two couldn’t manage the heavy things much at all. Me neither, only I had little choice.
