Those Things Declared Over Me   Leave a comment

The air I breathe I don’t discount

with each breath through lungs unseen,

My sight though weakened and dimming be

 transfixed upon your works I see,

 your boundless grace embraces me

and I hold fast to what is mine,

what you proclaimed and  declared  over me

that which sets me apart, and sets me free,

your greatness, your power, your word, your truth

all that you are, the great ‘I Am’

I lift up your name,

and praise to thee.

John 6:33, NIV, “Then Jesus declared, “I am the bread of life, He who comes to me will never go hungry, and he who believes in me will never be thirsty.”

I John 1:5, NIV, “This is the message we have heard from him and declare to you, God is light. In Him there is no darkness at all.”

The above scriptures speak of a spiritual hunger and thirst for truth and righteousness. We live in a world of darkness and see the despair on the faces and in the lives of people everywhere, but we can have and be the light to those who don’t know the Savior sent to bring us light and salvation..  As we enter into a new season of Thanksgiving, I am always mindful of what all I have to be grateful and thankful for, but it is not just the season for thanks, but each and every day of my life I am amazed at the blessings poured out on me, my family and the ways God shows up and shows out in our lives to do His work and that of the Holy Spirit’s of healing, grace and forgiveness. His declarations spoken over our life brings wholeness, completeness and a reward not found in anything else. I hope He is real to your life as well, and you are blessed this Thanksgiving and the coming days into Christmas.  Blessings to all this Thanksgiving season.  JEM
