Behold The Beauty Of The LORD
Sing to the LORD a new song!
The LORD takes great delight when you take delight in Him.
The Song He gives you will cause your heart to dance.
Listen and pay attention to His Voice.
There is going to be a breakthrough in the Spirit.
As you sing in the Spirit and clap your hands,
You will never be the same again,
Because of His delight in you!
He is transforming you from what you were,
Into the manifestation of His calling.
There will be no mistaking who you are in Him.
Others will be in awe of what the LORD has begun in you.
They will see you formed into the image of Him.
Who has called you out of the darkness,
Into the marvelous light of His countenance,
His countenance is shining upon you,
And driving the darkness away.
You will again behold the beauty of the LORD,
And you will go forth with joy,
For He is you shield, and your exceedingly great reward.
He Is More Than Ready!
I went to an orthopedic doctor’s office for my shoulder this morning.
We looked at the MRI scan together and found there is no tear, which of course is a good report. He determined that I needed a cortisone shot, and during the injection he asks “Are you okay so far?”
I said; “Yes, I know I have to yield to what I really need.”
We all have a Great Physician Who knows all of our inward parts.
He knows every secret, He knows where every pain is, He knows where every hidden thing has been suppressed and pushed down.
He understands all of our defenses, and all of our reasons to not say, or speak about what really hurts.
He has been protecting you during your inward battle, till you come to the point of knowing when and why you have to yield to what you really need.
He is ready to catch what falls, even your tears.
He is ready for the time when you are willing to let go.
He is ready for the time when you are willing to give it over to Him.
He is ready for the time where you are willing to get up again.
He is ready for the time when your walk with Him will flourish again.
He is ready for your new beginning.
Now, arise and shine, for your light has come;
The Glory of the LORD is rising upon you.
He is more than ready…..
