Allow me to step up on a soap box for a moment.
I have been increasingly frustrated with what I’m seeing in our society, primarily in our churches. We stand for nothing, so we fall for anything. We don’t call out sin therefore those who are sinning have no idea that their lifestyle is a lie. We have stopped standing for innocence, innocence of life, innocence of adolescence, innocence in general. We allow our voices to be drowned out by the masses due to intimidation and fear.
We, as Christians, are not allowed to simply act and live as everyone else, we know better. We, as Christians, are not permitted to stay silent as the darkness creeps in. This is a battle, why are so few Christians fighting? Continue reading “Salt And Light”
God, we are waiting. For what, we do not know, but I know there are many waiting on you to move.
We are aligning ourselves with your Word, turning from the world to fix our eyes on Jesus. We are closing our ears to the lies told to us by those around us and opening them to words spoken by men and women who relentlessly pursue you. We are removing old garments, replacing them with pieces of your armor. Continue reading “Aligning”
Lord, your people need you, now more than ever before. They are hungry for your Word, their stomachs growl with the desire to digest your truth. Your people are thirsty for your Spirit, their bodies long for the refreshing rain of your presence.
God, if you don’t fall on them, on me, then we will drop by the wayside, become small in a world where we have no choice but to become big if we are to survive. Continue reading “Fall”
I can’t do this on my own, that much I intimately know. I have no ability beyond what you give me, what you pour into me. My strength is weak in comparison to yours and my thoughts slow unless replaced with the mind of Christ.
Lord, I know I am no match for the giant and no enemy to the foe unless I have you backing me. I know I am small compared to the mountain and insignificant to the wave as it comes roaring in. When the tides rise I have no way of keeping my head above water unless you are the firm ground beneath my feet.
But, Lord, I also know that when you step in there isn’t an enemy in the world that can stand against me. I know that when you put your armor upon my shoulders no sword can pierce me and no bullet can make me bleed. Lord, I know that when you fill my mouth wisdom floods out far beyond my years and education. I know, God, that when you fight through me, I am unstoppable.
