Delivered. It is finished. We have been delivered to serve our God without fear. We are saved from all those who hate us. We serve the Most High God and His Word shall come to pass. Don’t hate the haters. Show them mercy. Pray for them, and watch and see what God will do!
Now his father Zacharias was filled with the Holy Spirit, and prophesied, saying: “Blessed is the Lord God of Israel, For He has visited and redeemed His people, And has raised up a horn of salvation for us In the house of His servant David, As He spoke by the mouth of His holy prophets, Who have been since the world began, That we should be saved from our enemies and from the hand of all who hate us, To perform the mercy promised to our fathers and to remember His holy covenant, The oath which He swore to our father Abraham: To grant us that we, Being delivered from the hand of our enemies, Might serve Him without fear, In holiness and righteousness before Him all the days of our life.
Thankful. Yep. It is a choice. Especially when the enemy continues to steal. And kill. And destroy. One of the things I have learned on my journey is that:
I can focus on what the enemy has stolen OR I can focus on what God has restored.
The choice is mine. But whatever I look at will be magnified.
If I look at the bad, I will see more bad, and eventually be consumed by it.
If I look at the good, I will see more good, and eventually be consumed by that.
It has not been an easy few days here. As many of you know I am a musician. I made a YouTube video and long story short, I found out someone had stolen one of my instrumental songs and put it on iTunes, Amazon, and CDBaby with worldwide distribution.
Yes, I am angry. Yes, it was wrong. Yes, it was theft. But I have to make a choice. Will I let this theft consume me? NO! What they meant for evil God will use for good – He promised! Today I choose to be thankful, thank you Jesus!
