A Mighty Roar

August 25, 2010

Daniel 6:27 He rescues and He saves; He performs signs and wonders in the heavens and on the earth. He has rescued Daniel from the power of the lions.

I was feeling a little like I was in the lion’s den,
surrounded by hungry roaring lions that seemed ready to devour and swallow me up. -Jere 51:38

The Lord encouraged me with this thought –
No matter how big those hungry lions seem or how loud they roar –
He the LORD, the Lion of Judah is bigger!
He has triumphed!

Take heart, be of good courage -Ps 27:13-14
Trust in the LORD your God
Be drawn under His wing
Trust Him to quiet, renew and refresh your soul
In the midst of the lions den
He is mighty to save
His roar is bigger!

“Hallelujah! For our Lord God Almighty reigns.” -Rev 19:6
The Lion of Judah in victory reigns! -Rev 5:5

Zephaniah 3:17 The LORD your God is with you{in your midst}, He is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, He will quiet{renew, refresh, bring into rest) you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing.

Psalm 57:1-5, 7 Be merciful to me, O God, be merciful to me!
For my soul trusts in You;
And in the shadow of Your wings I will make my refuge,
Until these calamities have passed by.
I will cry out to God Most High,
To God who performs all things for me.
He shall send from heaven and save me;
He reproaches the one who would swallow me up. Selah
God shall send forth His mercy and His truth.
My soul is among lions;
I lie among the sons of men
Who are set on fire,
Whose teeth are spears and arrows,
And their tongue a sharp sword.
Be exalted, O God, above the heavens;
Let Your glory be above all{over} the earth.

 

My heart is steadfast, O God, my heart is steadfast;
I will sing, yes, I will sing praises!

A Mighty Thunderous Roar {Article}

From Article:
Joel 3:16
The LORD will roar from Zion and thunder from Jerusalem; the earth and the sky will tremble. But the LORD will be a refuge for his people, a stronghold for the people of Israel.

1 Samuel 2:10
Those who contend with the LORD will be shattered; against them He will thunder in the heavens, the LORD will judge the ends of the earth; and He will give strength to His king, and will exalt the horn of His anointed.

All will tremble at the roar of the Lion of Judah (Amos 3:8). To those who contend with the Lord, His roar will show His wrath (Prov 19:12, 20:2). They will tremble in terror. But to those who belong to the Lord it will be protection. They will tremble in awe and respect gathered like protected children around Him.

The Lion of Judah aroused
Hear His mighty call
Living waters rushing, flowing
Peals of thunder
A sound from heaven
“Hallelujah! For our Lord God Almighty reigns.” –Rev 19:6
Deep calling out to deep
The sound of waterfalls. –Ps 42:7

Shout! Clap your hands
Sound the trumpet
Praise the Lord
Awake the dawn
Sing His praise before the nations –Ps 57:8-9
With the voice of triumph
For it is written
Every knee shall bow and every tongue confess
Giving praise to the Lord God Almighty! –Rom 14:11

Lift up your heads, O you gates
Be lifted up, you ancient doors –Ps 24:7
Behold, the King of glory quickly comes –Rev 3:11
His glory fills the temple
Hold fast
The Lion of Judah in victory reigns.

All in His temple cry aloud “GLORY!” –Ps 29:9
Join the mighty thunderous roar
Awake the dawn!

Faithful and True

August 13, 2010

Faithful and True

HALLELUJA! Salvation and glory and power belong to our God, for true and just are His judgments. -Rev 19:1-2

Word of God – Faithful and True
Faithful and True are You!

I saw heaven standing open and there before me was a white horse, whose rider is called Faithful and True. … He is dressed in a robe dipped in blood, and his name is the Word of God. -Rev 19:11,13

Say the Word and I’ll be filled
Say the Word and I’ll be healed
Say the Word and make me whole
My heart and life I yield to You.

“Ah, Sovereign LORD, You have made the heavens and the earth by Your great power and outstretched arm. Nothing is too hard for You. -Jere 32:17

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was without form, and void; and darkness was on the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters. Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light. -Gen 1:1-3

Hold me, mold me
Take me by the hand

Say the Word and I’ll be still -Ps 46:10
Placing all my hope in You
Held tightly in Your grasp
Waiting until
Every Word spoken is
FULFILLED.

By faith Abraham, even though he was past age—and Sarah herself was barren—was enabled to become a father because he considered Him faithful who had made the promise. And so from this one man, and he as good as dead, came descendants as numerous as the stars in the sky and as countless as the sand on the seashore. -Heb 11:11-12

Word of God – Faithful and True
Faithful and True are You!

Behold, the Lord’s eye is upon those who fear Him [who revere and worship Him with awe], who wait for Him and hope in His mercy and loving-kindness, To deliver them from death and keep them alive in famine. Our inner selves wait [earnestly] for the Lord; He is our Help and our Shield. For in Him does our heart rejoice, because we have trusted (relied on and been confident) in His holy name.

Let Your mercy and loving-kindness, O Lord, be upon us, in proportion to our waiting and hoping for You. -Ps 33:18-22 AMP

John 10:10 … The thief comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance (to the full, till it overflows).

Revelations 19:11, 16 … I saw heaven standing open and there before me was a white horse, whose rider is called Faithful and True. … On his robe and on his thigh he has this name written: KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.

Joshua 23:14 … Now behold, today I am going the way of all the earth, and you know in all your hearts and in all your souls that not one word of all the good words which the LORD your God spoke concerning you has failed; all have been fulfilled for you, not one of them has failed.

Luke 1:37   … For with God nothing is ever impossible and no word from God shall be without power or impossible of fulfillment.

The Lord is Good

August 4, 2010

Psalm 33:5 The earth is full of the goodness of the LORD.

Psalm 145:9 The Lord is good to all, and His tender mercies are over all His works [the entirety of things created].

Do you sometimes long for a dramatic display of God’s glory and power to show that He is with you?

Consider this, maybe He wants you to see Him in His little displays of goodness, which He demonstrates every day in hundreds of acts of mercy and compassion. Today take a look at where God’s hand is on your life, it may surprise you how many little acts of goodness are provided for us if we just look for them!

May our Lord Jesus Christ open our eyes to His many acts of goodness and mercy that surround us each day. Let each of us see His hand on our lives today and rest in this knowledge.

Psalm 34:8 AMP O taste and see that the Lord [our God] is good! Blessed (happy, fortunate, to be envied) is the man who trusts and takes refuge in Him.

Psalm 100:5 AMP For the Lord is good; His mercy and loving-kindness are everlasting, His faithfulness and truth endure to all generations.

Psalm 136:1-3 NIV Give thanks to the LORD, for He is good. His love endures forever.
Give thanks to the God of gods. His love endures forever.
Give thanks to the Lord of lords: His love endures forever.
