Do you fall short? Do you perform flawlessly?
Are you flooded with weaknesses and therefore condemned?
Does the enemy have power to accuse?
And do you stand by and receive such death in your soul?
“He said to me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.’ Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.”
II Corinthians 12:9
Did your one true love desert you and run after another?
And did the job of your dreams fall into the hands of someone else?
Did the boss look you in the eye, “You’re not cut out for this, you’re history?
But the Lord says,
“For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.”
Does the world have the right to label you
Do your friends and those you live with see the
Glory of God on you?
Or do they put you in a box and say
There’s the place for you…go no further
But isn’t that really the voice of the enemy?
Elohim, the Creator, Your maker, has spoken the last Word
It is only here you must live and move and have your being
“I am overwhelmed with joy in the LORD my God! For he has dressed me with the clothing of salvation and draped me in a robe of righteousness. I am like a bridegroom in his wedding suit or a bride with her jewels.”
And so I rejoice in my infirmities
I want His strength not my own to receive glory
And I will rejoice when men say all manner of evil against me
For my reputation is in His hands
And I will rejoice when I am labelled and put into a box
For He too was labeled and put into a grave
But on the third day…!
“If the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwells in you.
Arise to your calling
Write the vision God has given
For He has an appointed vineyard, a field for you
The time is short, the lost are perishing
Rise up, look unto Jesus who only can call you righteous
Cease your argument—reject the lies
Agree with His word spoken over you
The time is short; too much is at stake, shirk no more
And arise like a lioness and bring the captives home!
“Here is a people rising up like a lioness; like a lion he rears himself up -he will not lie down till he eats up the prey and drinks the blood of the slain.”
