We Praise You #Worship #Inspiration #MattRedman #BrandonLake

Oh my, this is SO GOOD, just what we ALL need! Let’s pray, and praise God, sing and worship Him for who HE IS–our Mighty Fortress. Faith trumps fear always.  I’m declaring Victory over any and all enemies today–because Jesus has overcome, and prevailed, regardless whether the manifestation is evident yet or not.

Poems for Warriors

I feel like this song is very apropos based on all that we are facing in the world today. Yesterday in church our pastor talked about intercessional worship. Most church people know about intercessional prayers, or praying on someone else behalf when they cannot pray or don’t know what to do, and intercessional worship is similar: praising God by song on someone else’s behalf.

We sang this song, an exceptional example of intercessional worship, praising God for breakthrough on the earth.

Lyrics of “We Praise You”

Verse 1:
Let praise be a weapon
That silences the enemy
Let praise be a weapon
That conquers all anxiety
Let it rise, let praise arise
We sing Your name in the dark
And it changes everything
We sing with all we are
And we claim Your victory
Let it rise, let praise arise

Chorus:
We’ll see You break down every wall
We’ll watch the giants fall

The Real Deal (and Sunday Song)

The world has dangled much before my heart’s eye.  I had designer tags on clothes and perfumes, plenty of bling; I was sought after, a “somebody”—albeit in small circles.  None of it satisfied the deep and mysterious longing.  Nothing we purchase and consume is meant to last; all that we collect and achieve will be ashes.

God, the Creator of all life, is Eternal.  He made the ultimate sacrifice on Calvary’s cross so that I can live with Him now and throughout Eternity.  That’s His everlasting promise which will never tarnish…He’s the real deal for me. 

His Word is the manna sustaining me, His love is beyond my understanding and measure.  He’s the anchor which tethers me, His strength carries me through each day.  His character includes every aspect of a loving Father, powerful Savior, intimate Friend, Defender, Protector, Provider, and trusted Lord.  He brings me joy, and daily mercies. 

He’s better than anything this temporal world offers me.  I’ve tasted and seen that the Lord is GOOD. 

May He bless you Abundantly.  Here’s a Sunday song♥Rhen

“For the angel of the LORD is a guard; he surrounds and defends all who fear him.  Taste and see that the LORD is good. Oh, the joys of those who take refuge in him!  Fear the LORD, you his godly people, for those who fear him will have all they need.  Even strong young lions sometimes go hungry, but those who trust in the LORD will lack no good thing.” Psalm 34:7-10, New Living Translation

“The heart of the Christian faith:  God sees a princess in every scrub-girl, a freeman in every slave, a son in every stranger.”

~ Grady Nutt, Southern Baptist Minister, author, humorist (1934-82)

Heaven’s Home Office

I’m relieved God

Has not assigned me

A chair on His council

Where tenured saints

Discuss, vote on issues

Hand down judgments

Accolades.

Taking and typing up notes

Bringing donuts, spring water

Will stretch my limited

Talent, capabilities.

God understands, accepts

That I’ve never been ambitious

And when there’s an opening

In Heaven’s Kitchen

I’m assured the position…

Happy day!
