The world may resound with so many dire predictions. Doctor’s reports when they don’t know what else may be done. Bank statements covered in red.
But when all seems to be dark, or the devil cackles the lie that you are just on borrowed time … God declares NO! I Am the Light and Life…
He is bursting forth from the tomb!
Bidding us… oh, bidding us to take our eyes off what we see, replace our words with His, reach out and touch the hem of His garment…believing against what darkness has been spoken and trusting to His words of… la chaim! (It may be tempting to pronounce and thereby agree with hopelessness we seem to see happening rather than with the hope and promise He wants in our mouths…but as the Lord entreats, we will speak out FAITH as though it already is, and choose words of Life! 🙂 )
O, whose report will we believe? I will believe the Lord’s!
On this Holy Saturday, let us “take hold of His words with all our heart, drink of His Sabbath Blessing…and we will not die but LIVE! May we not let them out of our sight! For they are LIFE to those who find them and health to our very bones, our whole body! Let not any negative report be in our mouths…but only the report of the Lord… (Proverbs 4: 4, 21-22)
And… a double blessing
O, do click here to listen…and… let this long beloved Sabbath blessing prayer send soaking warmth into your spirit, wrap you in the cloak of His Love, nourish you as the Bread and the Cup poured out for you!
And this stunningly gorgeous song I’ve never heard before (somehow, it just started playing immediately following the one above and seemed meant to share here 🙂 )…As the Psalmist says, He surrounds you as He surrounds Jerusalem…
