The Enemy is Under Our Feet

The Enemy is Under Our Feet

Submit yourselves to God

Resist the Devil

and he’ll flee from you

Jesus is above all powers and principalities

The Name above all names

Exalted to the Highest Place

He carried our sins and sickness away

At the Cross of Calvary

Christ’s victory is our victory

We’re seated with Christ in Heavenly places

Far above all principalities and all powers of darkness

We are above and not beneath

The enemy is under our feet

 

 

God, Who is our peace, will soon crush Satan under your feet. May the loving-favor of our Lord Jesus be yours.

Abba’s Love

This song started from a picture on a Facebook post from a fellow traveller. I still have to come up with some chords and a melody, but here are the lyrics. Here is the picture and the post -“Write the saddest story using only 4 words”

Abba’s Love

-Copyright 2016 Diana Rasmussen

Grief echoes like broken windows

In her abandoned heart

Sulking in the darkness

she doesn’t know where to start

 
She’s not sure how to move on

Fears whisper in the wind

Ever since he left this world

and crossed over to the next

 

That’s where the Light breaks through

All the shadows of darkness flee

Abba’s love makes all things new

Abba’s love makes all things new

 
She crawls out of the corner

Leaving behind the despair

One touch from Abba

gave her strength to stand

 
She walks freely through the doorway

into her destiny

The ugly past behind her

Her future’s brighter and secure

 
That’s where the Light breaks through

All the shadows of darkness flee

Abba’s love makes all things new

Abba’s love makes all things new

 

Surrounded by love

Surrounded by mercy

Surrounded by peace

She lifts up her head

 
That’s where the Light breaks through

All the shadows of darkness flee

Abba’s love makes all things new

Abba’s love makes all things new

 

 

  •  For those who are led by the Spirit of God are the children of God.  The Spirit you received does not make you slaves, so that you live in fear again;rather, the Spirit you received brought about your adoption to sonship.  And by him we cry, “Abba, Father.”  The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God’s children.  Now if we are children, then we are heirs—heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory. – Romans 8:14-17 NIV

Get Up Sisters and Brothers

“Get up”. That’s what I heard the Spirit say when I woke up. Get up out of the old, and walk in the newness of life. How about you? Are you ready for the new things that God is bringing into your life?

I also saw a snake on the ground. the Spirit asked me to stop on it with the Blood of Jesus. So I did, squashed his stupid little head! Yes, we have the power and authority to step on the snakes in our lives!

Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you. – Luke 10:19 NKJV

One thing I have learned is that I had to empty my hands. It was hard to receive anything from the Lord when I kept hanging onto the old things – my hands and my heart were full. Release it, let it go, open up your hands and your heart today to receive from the Lord. He has such beautiful things to show us. And rise with me my friends, “GET UP!”

Get Up

~Copyright 2015 Diana Rasmussen~

Get up, up, up, up, up

Though I have fallen I  rise again

Get up, up, up, up, up

Through the Blood of Jesus

I step on the Enemy’s head!

I’m leaving the old with all sorrow’s untold

Walking in the Spirit reflecting God’s appearance

A son or a daughter I’ve been washed in the Water

Gonna get up, up, up, up, up!

micah

Therefore we were buried with Him through baptism into death, that just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.” – Romans 6:4 NKJV

O Zion,You who bring good tidings, Get up into the high mountain;O Jerusalem,You who bring good tidings, Lift up your voice with strength, Lift it up, be not afraid;Say to the cities of Judah, “Behold your God!”

Behold, the Lord God shall come with a strong hand, And His arm shall rule for Him; Behold, His reward is with Him, And His work before Him.

He will feed His flock like a shepherd; He will gather the lambs with His arm, And carry them in His bosom,And gently lead those who are with young. – Isaiah 40:9-11

Oh Lord our God

the Majesty and the

glory of Your Name

Fills all the Earth and

overflows the Heavens

I’m a Minister of Reconciliation

an Ambassador of the Lord

sent to perform His will on earth

His glory will be restored

As the Heavens declare He is Lord

not my will but thine be done

As He increases His territory

The Earth shall reflect

the Glory of the Lord as

I walk in victory

Miracles, signs, and wonders

follow all those who believe

I’m sent in Christ’s Authority

His purpose is alive in me

I speak to the infirmities

the strife poverty or demons

I command them to leave

cast them into the abyss

by the Authority of Jesus

given to me

Be healed and made whole

through the blood of the Lord

walk forward in liberty

John 8:36 – If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.

John 8:32 – And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

2 Corinthians 3:17 – Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord [is], there [is] liberty.

Help me remember

your plans are good

when life is hard

and I’m misunderstood

Show me your light

when the world is dark

You are faithful to me

despite my many doubts

Show me Your Glory

fill me with peace

I trust You forever

let my faith increase

 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” – Jeremiah 29:11 NIV

The apostles said to the Lord, “Increase our faith!” He replied, “If you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mulberry tree, ‘Be uprooted and planted in the sea,’ and it will obey you. – Luke 17:5-6 NIV

I Am

I AM
~Copyright 2015 Diana Rasmussen~

I am

I was praying in the spirit
Seeking my daily bread
When the mighty voice of waters
Spoke to me and said

Bride of Christ Arise
Come up into the Heavenly skies
Prophesy what you see
Sit down next to me
And tell me what you see

Bride of Christ arise
I AM the Way
I AM the Door
I AM the Light
And the giver of Life

From this new perspective
I see His glory going forth in waves
Healing His body of believers today
I see the lame man dancing with new limbs
I see the dumb man talking to his friends
I see the blind man beholding Your Beauty
I see the fatherless adopted into Your Royal Family

Your Glory comes in waves
Covers your body today
the bound are loosed
addictions and sickness fall away
Anxiety and depression leave the fold
The broken hearted are filled with joy
The Splendor of Your Holiness
Lights up our way

Your worship defeats enemies
Your praise opens doors you can’t see

I AM the Way
I AM the Door
I AM the Light
And the giver of Life

 

 

Exodus 3:14 “And God said to Moses, ‘I AM WHO I AM’ and He said , “Thus you shall say to the children of Israel, I AM has sent me to you.”

DID I TELL YOU

©2013 Diana Rasmussen

I see the ocean in your eyes
years of laughter and surprise
Waves of sorrow, tides of tears
Being together all these years

The moon sparkles on the water
Reflects my devotion always
Our love is tried and true
Time is still when I’m with you

Did I tell you I love you today?
I thought I would ask and say
Like the waves on the shore
Can I tell you once more
I love you today
and forever more

Created to be Loved

©2015 Diana Rasmussen

The Creator of the universe
is the creator of your life
He paints His grace and mercy
on the canvas of your face

He molds you and He makes you
into the masterpiece we see
You are created with the love of God
His breath’s inside of you

You are created to be loved
endowed with power from above
What a marvelous display
to be captured by His grace

He’s the Lord of all creation
as you look upon His face
Rest in His forgiveness
You’re created to be loved

My Rock

My Rock

Copyright 2015 Diana Rasmussen

  
On those days I don’t want to get out of bed

Just turn over and hide under the covers instead

Or maybe I park myself on the couch

Watch tv for hours pretending to be someone else

God You are faithful to me

There’s hope beyond what I see

I’m clinging to your Word

regardless of these waves

You’re my rock in this stormy place

When I don’t answer my phone because I’m hiding from bills

Then I burn dinner trying to do too many things

The kids and I fight because they don’t respect the rules 

Remind me that it won’t always be this way 

God You are faithful to me

There’s hope beyond what I see

I’m clinging to your Word

regardless of these waves

You’re my rock in this stormy place
 

 

My Masterpiece

Imagine God is talking to you – right here and right now…

My Masterpiece

Copyright 2015 Diana Rasmussen

You’re  the picture on my fridge
I love to color outside of the lines
The mountains might be purple
The sky it might be pink
And know my plans for you
Are bigger than you think
chosenLift up your head and turn your gaze
I’ll fill you with my peace
Let your troubles fall to the ground
I’ve got you child I’ll provide you with all things
Don’t worry about tomorrow
I’ve got you in my arms
Don’t see yourself through their labels and their licitizenes
look to me and I’ll open up your eyes
You’re not what they say
but you’re beautiful and free
Made with love and mercy
You’re my masterpiece

Oceans of Memories

We all know grief. We have all lost someone dear to us. They say death is a part of life. Idk about that. I can tell you I don’t like it. I don’t like losing people. Yes, I know if they are saved they go to Heaven and dance with Jesus. But we are still here. And some days I really miss them.

Here are the lyrics to one of my new songs I am working on.

 But the Comforter (Counselor, Helper, Intercessor, Advocate, Strengthener, Standby), the Holy Spirit, Whom the Father will send in My name [in My place, to represent Me and act on My behalf], He will teach you all things. And He will cause you to recall (will remind you of, bring to your remembrance) everything I have told you. – John 14:26 AMP

Ocean of Memories

Copyright 2015 Diana Rasmussen

In the middle of the room sat a hospital bed
silver side rails held her in while lifting her head
I grabbed the black remote control
Raised her up once more to hold her close

She was trapped in a body that just wouldn’t move
Yet I could see her inside, Her spirit you cannot hide

Oceans of Memories flooded her mind
She looked at me without speaking a word
One blink for yes, Two blinks for no
I squeezed her hand and said, “I know”

I’m glad Mama was home at the time of her life’s end
Those last days were hard for my mother and my friend
Can I just hit the rewind?
Back to a time without that hospital bed

Im trapped in a body that just won’t move
You can see me inside, Your Spirit you cannot hide
grief 2
Oceans of memories flooding my mind
God look at me without saying a word
One blink for yes, Two blinks for no
Lord squeeze my hand and tell me, “I know”

Waves of love and waves of grief
Holy Spirit comfort me through this time
Oceans of memories flowing like tides

Oceans of memories flooding my mind
God look at me without saying a word
One blink for yes, Two blinks for no
Lord squeeze my hand and tell me, “I know”

Bride of Christ Arise

Bride of Christ Arise

I was praying in the spirit
Seeking my daily bread
When the mighty Voice of Waters
Spoke to me and said:

“Bride of Christ Arise
Come up into the Heavenly skies
Sit down next to me
And tell me what you see”

I can see His glory coming
in waves over a sea
Reigniting His broken body
setting believers free

“Bride of Christ Arise
Come up into the Heavenly skies
Sit down next to me
And tell me what you see”

Addictions, sickness fall away
cast off by the sea’s crest
Anxiety and depression
like seaweed they left

“Bride of Christ Arise
Come up into the Heavenly skies
Sit down next to me
And tell me what you see”

I see the lame man dancing with new limbs
I see the dumb man talking to his friends
I see the blind man gawking at all he sees
I see the fatherless adopted into Your Royal Family

“Bride of Christ Arise
Come up into the Heavenly skies
Sit down next to me
And tell me what you see”

Are bigger than you think!
