Behold Our God



"...even death on a cross." 



Philippians 2:5-8 (ESV) 
5 ....Christ Jesus, 6 who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, 7 but emptied himself, by taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. 8 And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. 

Heavenly Father this song by sovereign grace music, "Behold our God" so overwhelms my heart that I weep with deepest gratitude and wonder at your gracious love.


Who has held the oceans in his hands?
Who has numbered every grain of sand?
Kings and nations tremble at his voice
All creation rises to rejoice
Who has given counsel to the Lord?
Who can question any of his words?
Who can teach, the one who knows all things?
Who can fathom all his wondrous deeds?
Who has felt the nails upon his hands?
Bearing all the guilt of sinful man
God eternal, humbled to the grave
Jesus, Savior, risen now to reign
Behold our God, seated on his throne
Come, let us adore him
Behold our king, nothing can compare
Come, let us adore him

Thank you God for such sacrificial love that would pay the penalty for my sin. "8 but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us."  Romans 5:8 (ESV)  

Amen

Focus





"Look straight ahead and fix your eyes on what lies before you." Proverbs 4:25 (NLT) 

Father, I was encouraged when I saw the picture my daughter and Lucky picking up our grandson after school. Lucky's eyes are totally fix on looking for him. I thought what an illustration of how we should fix our eyes on Your Word and the wonderful results of living daily that way. 

Father May we truly contemplate the value and lesson from Philippians 4:8-9 (NLT)  " 8 ....Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise. 9 Keep putting into practice all you learned and received from me—everything you heard from me and saw me doing. Then the God of peace will be with you."  


Thank you Father for the peace that  comes from fixing our eyes on the right things. In the name of Jesus who is our peace. Amen.

And you also were included in Christ when you heard the message of truth, the gospel of your salvation. When you believed, you were marked in him with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit, who is a deposit guaranteeing our inheritance until the redemption of those who are God’s possession—to the praise of his glory.

Gracious Father, 

Thank you for enabling me to hear and believe the gospel . My salvation is all of grace. You have sealed me with the promised Holy Spirit - who is an inviolate sign that I belong to you, now and forever. You began my salvation, and you will bring it to conclusion one day. By the Holy Spirit, you assure me that I belong to you and guarantee my final inheritance. Nothing can separate me from your love or move you to disinherit me. Signed, sealed, delivered, I'm yours!

A Franciscan Benediction


May God bless you with discomfort …
At easy answers, half-truths, and superficial relationships,
So that you may live deep within your heart.

May God bless you with anger …
At injustice, oppression and exploitation of people,
So that you may work for justice, freedom and peace.

May God bless you with tears …
To shed for those who suffer from pain, rejection, starvation and war,
So that you may reach out your hand to comfort them
And to turn their pain into joy.

And may God bless you with enough foolishness …
To believe that you can make a difference in this world.
Amen

Hands and Heart




"...I hold you by your right hand— I, the LORD your God. And I say to you, ‘
Don’t be afraid. I am here to help you." Isaiah 41:13 (NLT) 

Dear LORD, I am advanced in years, diminished in strength, and disquieted by imbalance. How grateful I am that in mercy and compassion You hold me by Your omnipotent hand. And included such security and love is my son who holds me with his sturdy and strong hand. A loving and gracious wife who holds me in her tender arms. Daughters who hold me with love and devotion. And friends who faithfully hold me in their prayers.

This song expresses it well for me, resulting in great joy and eternal gratitude.

I don't know about tomorrow
I just live for day to day
I don't borrow from the sunshine
For it's skies may turn to gray

I don't worry o'er the future
For I know what Jesus said
And today I'll walk beside Him
For He knows what lies ahead

Many things about tomorrow
I don't seem to understand
But I know who holds tomorrow
And I know (those) who holds my hand

  " Know Who Holds Tomorrow"
Alison Krauss, The Cox Family

Thank You Father for love, divine and human, that help me and hold me in their hands and heart. Amen.

a prayer for seeing God's promise

He said to them, “How foolish you are, and how slow to believe all that the prophets have spoken! Did not the Messiah have to suffer these things and then enter his glory?” And beginning with Moses and all the Prophets, he explained to them what was said in all the Scriptures concerning himself. (Luke 24:25-27)

Lord,

Just as those who struggled to and were slow to believe, we, too, are slow and foolish of heart, needing the ministry of the Spirit to free me from our unbelief. We praise you for your pursuit of us, your limitless patience, and steadfast love. 

Jesus, continue to do for us what you did for those on Emmaus Road - to see you everywhere in Scripture. Drive deep into our hearts that truth of how you have fulfilled the law, and we can add nothing to our salvation. Keep us clear and free from all forms of works-driven salvation, and me-centered living. Keep convincing us that you are the resounding "Yes!" to every promise God has made through the prophets - not just with to the cross, but also to your crown! (1 Cor. 1:20).

Fear Not


" ...God hath not given us the spirit of fear ..." 2 Timothy 1:7 (KJV) 

Dear Farther, throughout the Scriptures, You have encouraged us to "Fear Not." You make this possible and practical because of Your grace, love and power given us through faith in Jesus Your beloved Son and confirmed with the gift of the Holy Spirit. We do not need to fear life, death, or the future. All of these Jesus overcame through His suffering, death and resurrection

You take the fear out of life by Your presence: "Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you." 6 So we say with confidence, "The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?" Hebrews 13:5-6 (NIV)  

You take the fear out of death by Your power: "Since the children have flesh and blood, he too shared in their humanity so that by his death he might destroy him who holds the power of death--that is, the devil--15 and free those who all their lives were held in slavery by their fear of death." Hebrews 2:14-15 (NIV) 

You take the fear out of the future by Your promise: "....you have been called to one glorious hope for the future." Ephesians 4:4 (NLT) 
"....as Scripture says: “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined the things that God has prepared for those who love him.”  1 Corinthians 2:9 (GW) 

Thank You Father that we need to fear because Your presence gives us peace, Your power gives us freedom and for Your promise  gives us hope.  

In the name of our glorious risen Savior. Amen.

Dearest Lord Jesus

You could have called for angelic help.
But you didn't fight your torturers.

You could have defended yourself.
But you didn't respond to accusations.

Like a lamb led to slaughter.
You yielded your life on the cross.

Grant us grace and courage.
That we might follow your example.

Grant us humility and meekness.
That we might be silent when we are criticized.

Fill us with mercy and compassion.
That we might forgive those who hurt us.

Triumphal Failure




"..the whole city was shaken.." 
Matthew 21:10 (HCSB) 

Father, tomorrow we celebrate Psalm Sunday and Jesus externing Jerusalem. The City reacted to Him as though a great  earthquake had taken place. " ,... the whole city was shaken, saying, “Who is this?” Matthew 21:10 (HCSB)   Then a few days later Jesus was rejected as their King and condemned to the shameful suffering and agonizing death of Roman crucifixion.. 

Father, we know his triumph did not come with branches being waved to welcome him but by being nailed to a cross through which he triumphed over sin, The Apostle Paul reminds us that: " ...He forgave us all our sins, 14 having canceled the written code, with its regulations, that was against us and that stood opposed to us; he took it away, nailing it to the cross. 15 And having disarmed the powers and authorities, he made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the cross." Colossians 2:13-15 (NIV) 

Thank you Father that what appeared to be a Triumphal Failure became an infinite and eternal Triumphant victory bringing us forgiveness and eternal life. A life that we can live triumphantly everyday. As the Scriptures affirm: 

2 Corinthians 2:14 (ESV) "...thanks be to God, who in Christ always leads us in triumphal procession..."  

1 Corinthians 15:56-57 (ESV) 
"56 The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. 57 But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory (Triumph) through our Lord Jesus Christ." 

Romans 8:37 (ESV) 
"....in all these things we are more than conquerors (Triumphant) through him who loved us. 

Hallelujah for our Triumphal Savior!

Good News in a Bad News World






1 Corinthians 15:1-4 (NIV) 
" ..... I want to remind you of the gospel I preached to you, ....2 By this gospel you are saved, .....3 For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, 4 that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures,"

Thank You Father that in a bad news world we has the glorious good news of the gospel.

1 Bless the LORD, O my soul, and all that is within me, bless his holy name!
2  Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits,

a blessing prayer for freedom



As the bird soars high
In the free holding of the wind,
Clear of the certainty of ground,,
Opening the imagination of wings
Into the grace of emptiness
To fulfill new voyagings,
May your life awaken
To the call of its freedom

As the ocean absolves itself
Of the expectation of land,
Approaching only 
In the form of waves      
to make limit of the threshold
where water meets sand
May your heart know the patience
and the joy of seeing infinity from limitation.


May we see all endings as another beginning
May we lean into who we were created to be
and not who we default to be

May we see all limitations as freedom.

Amen

prayer for inner calm

Dear Lord and Father of humankind,

Forgive our foolish ways;
Reclothe us in our rightful mind,
In purer lives Thy service find,
In deeper reverence, praise.

Drop Thy still dews of quietness,
Till all our strivings cease;
Take from our souls the strain and stress,
And let our ordered lives confess
The beauty of Thy peace.

Breathe through the heats of our desire
Thy coolness and Thy balm;
Let sense be dumb, let flesh retire;
Speak through the earthquake, wind, and fire,
O still, small voice of calm.

Amen.

for healing a sick soul

Oh, Lord, my soul is sick with hurt and anger. Holding on, like I am, to the memory of the pain inflicted on me is keeping me trapped in a dark place. I can almost see the heavy chains around my hands and feet, bolting me in the very situation that caused my shame.

Help me to stop reliving the moments of hurt. Cover me with your healing. Give me your strength to forgive. Give me your eyes to see those who hurt me the way you do. Heal me of my unforgiveness and free my spirit to trust and love again.

In your mighty name, amen.

Father,

Teach us grace and wisdom to act kindly, learning what is personal and what is not when we feel attacked.

Teach us to be hospitable to criticism.

Show us what is looks like to build and refine our hearts and minds so that we may have the heart and mind of Christ.

Grace, What a Word





Romans 5:20 (NLT)
"God’s law was given so that all people could see how sinful they were. But as people sinned more and more, God’s wonderful grace became more abundant." 


Heavenly Father, this wonderful song expresses so deeply the gratitude for the grace that can be written over all of my sin.

"I Am Not Worthy the Least of His Favors" By Beatrice Bush Bixler.

First Stanza

I am not worthy the least of His favor,
But Jesus left heaven for me;
The Word became flesh and He died as my Savior,
Forsaken on dark Calvary.

Chorus:

I am not worthy this dull tongue repeats it!
I am not worthy this heart gladly beats it?
Jesus left heaven to die in my place
What mercy, what love and what grace!

Thank you Lord Jesus for dying in my place, suffering and paying the debt for my sin and for the abundant grace that covers them all. As the Scriptures remind me: "But we see him who for a little while was made lower than the angels, namely Jesus, crowned with glory and honor because of the suffering of death, so that by the grace of God he might taste death for everyone."  Hebrews 2:9 (ESV) 

Amen.

Jesus,

Strangers came to you,
because with you,
they hoped they would be seen
for who they were

not for who the seers saw.

May we who are strangers 
see each other.

May we find our foundation
in the work of love;
demanding, tiring,
true and human and holy. 
Because Your love is the one foundation
worth building on.

Amen
