STAND

STAND

When the money’s gone and the bills come in

When the sky turns black lightning, thundering

When our friends or family betray

We’re gonna forgive them anyway

 

We’re gonna get through this

We’ve been through a whole lot worse

We’re gonna get through this

Dig down deep and take my hand

Together we stand

 

When the work is long and the pay is slow

When our hair turns gray cause we’re getting old

When the kids move out to find their way

We’re gonna love our life anyway

 

We’re gonna get through this

We’ve been through a whole lot worse

We’re gonna get through this

Dig down deep and take my hand

Together we stand

 

 

They may kick they may bite

They may slander and they may fight but

 

We’re gonna get through this

We’ve been through a whole lot worse

We’re gonna get through this

Dig down deep and take my hand

Together we stand

 

 

Be careful—watch out for attacks from Satan, your great enemy. He prowls around like a hungry, roaring lion, looking for some victim to tear apart. Stand firm when he attacks. Trust the Lord; and remember that other Christians all around the world are going through these sufferings too.

 After you have suffered a little while, our God, who is full of kindness through Christ, will give you his eternal glory. He personally will come and pick you up, and set you firmly in place, and make you stronger than ever. (1 Peter 5:8-10 TLB)

Good versus Evil

“Satan and his demons are known by the discord they promote, the wars they start, the hatred they engender, the murders they initiate, the opposition to God and His commandments. They are dedicated to the spirit of destruction … In his warfare against God, Satan uses the human race, which God created and loved. So God’s forces of good and Satan’s forces of evil have been engaged in a deadly conflict from the dawn of our history. Unless world leaders and statesmen understand the true nature of this warfare, they will continue to be blind leaders of the blind.”
(Source: “Angels” a book by Evangelist Billy Graham)

Not Good Enough?

I am still searching out this guilt, shame, condemnation, freedom, righteousness, grace thing. Can I tell you I am still learning this whole “God” thing, what He really says, and what He really means. This post helped me a lot today:

Is the Holy Spirit really the “Fault Finder” or Accuser of Brethren?

I woke up with these words running in my head:

“NOT GOOD ENOUGH, NOT GOOD ENOUGH”

Now I know that is not from God,

that is NOT what God says to me.  

That is what someone else has told me,

and it is NOT TRUE!  

Help us Lord, with your Holy Spirit, to understand You and Your ways. Lord, let us take every thought captive and subject it to YOUR WORD.  I reject those words “not good enough”.  Let them fall to the ground like dust.  Thank you for the sword of your Spirit – the Word of God – that helps me to know what is true and what is false. I thank you that we can know the Truth and the Truth will set us FREE!

This is what I’m putting on – how about You?

I delight greatly in the Lord;
    my soul rejoices in my God.
For he has clothed me with garments of salvation
    and arrayed me in a robe of his righteousness,
as a bridegroom adorns his head like a priest,
    and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels. (Isaiah 61:10 NIV)
