Joshua 1:9

Like so many of you, we are following all the CDC guidelines addressing this horrible virus. Due to my asthma and the severe attack I had four weeks ago, I have been keeping myself at home, for a week now.

But the last several mornings, I have woke up and for a moment thought all of this was a bad dream. Anyone else? 

This morning the same thing…but the song I woke up to was Natalie Grant’s latest song: “My Weapon”

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4BpirBRWGUs

“Let every lie be silenced
And all depression cease
Let every dark assignment
Bow down at Jesus’ feet

Let every curse be broken
Let every storm be tamed
And all that come against us
Be bound in Jesus’ name

Your presence is my greatest weapon
Pushing back the darkness
Breaking every chain

My worship opens up the heavens
Crushing every stronghold
When I speak Your name
Your presence is my weapon
Your presence is my weapon

Your strength will not be shaken
Your love will not back down
Death has been defeated
What can stop me now

I hold on to what You’ve spoken
You said that I am free
You’ve given me Your promise
You are my victory

Your presence is my greatest weapon
Pushing back the darkness
Breaking every chain

My worship opens up the heavens
Crushing every stronghold
When I speak Your name
Your presence is my weapon
Your presence is my weapon

Your word and a melody
Are making a way for me
You defeat the enemy
This prison is shaking now
And these walls are coming down
Your presence makes me free
I am free

Your presence is my greatest weapon
Pushing back the darkness
Breaking every chain

My worship opens up the heavens
Crushing every stronghold
When I speak Your name
Your presence is my weapon
Your presence is my weapon”

She wrote this song based on Joshua 1:9….the Lord reminded me yet again…He is Here!

Then a bird sang outside our window at the end of the song, in the dark. And stopped as quickly as he began.

Then immediately after, Focus on the Family interviewed Dr. Collins, head of the NIH, and he answered so many questions, prayed for us AND quoted Joshua 1:9

Later today I was on Facebook, and a friend is doing videos every day of scripture readings. Do you want to guess?

You were right.

His Presence is OUR WEAPON!

More than a List

 

I have always prayed. But too often I have taken my “lists of needs and wants” to the Father as if He is the owner of a store in which all my lists can be fulfilled.

But I believe, in my humble opinion, that it is about communication with the Father. The God of the Universe. Of course I believe in prayer…but the way I pray has changed accordingly. I have always talked to Jesus as if He was right with me (which He was) but I had to learn to listen more…to trust Him in all things. 

We are playing a new song at the radio station and the chorus has really touched my heart. It is sang by Natalie Grant and written by Becca and Samuel Mizell.

“Help me want the Healer, more than the healing.
Help me want the Savior more than the saving.
Help me want the Giver more than the giving.
Help me want you Jesus more than anything.”

Oh Lord….hear my cry. Remind me that it is about you Jesus,, your love and not what you can do for me. Enough was done on the cross.

I want the Healer, the Savior, the Giver….Jesus.
