Summer of change
There is a reaching in my spirit to touch the deep of God. I strain, I press forward toward the Voice that calls me to deeper life in Him.
In my garden, I see as if for the first time that there is a food chain of birds and bugs.
In the Kingdom, I see. I see as if for the first time.
A banqueting table has been set, ready for me to sit and feast in the presence of my enemies.
Jesus, even cancer, that foul enemy humanity hates and fears. In the presence of it, You prepare a table before me.
God, I sit down.
You anoint my head with oil.
My cup You have filled
It runs over.
“Drink this cup,” You have said. “This is My Blood of the New Covenant.
Seal of the promises I keep for you.”
The Blood runs over
It spills and covers us.
The Blood runs over
You have purchased us by
Royal Blood shed.
We belong to the King,
To the God of amazement, wonder and beauty, the One who is more than enough in every situation, every circumstance.
There at the table, as I lift my face to You
I see a banner blowing over me.
It blows in the wind of Your breath
Blows hard so the enemy sees it.
Behold! I see the enemy scatter
They cannot prevail when Your banner waves.
Jehovah Nissi – our banner of Victory
Jehovah – the Blood, the Blood of Your Son has won the battle.
Goodness and Mercy await my awakening.
I will walk through
I will walk through the valley streaked with the shadow of death.
I will walk through valiantly, victoriously,
Voraciously trusting in You, my God and King.
I am Your child; Your eye is ever upon me. Your Presence fills me with peace, unstoppable joy.
If I run too fast, the crook of Your staff gently corrals me back to Your side.
Your side, that has dripped with Blood shed for me. You ask me to keep in step with the Spirit.
I gaze upon You, see only glorious radiance.
Look behind; see Goodness and Mercy bubbling with laughter and joy.
I look upon the enemy that confronts me. I see only the Table You have prepared for me.
You anoint my head with the oil of joy. Or is that Mercy?
I drink my overflowing cup, the Blood spills over and I am covered.
Your covenant promises are for me. By the power of them, every need has been met.
There at the Table You have prepared a feast.
You say, “Take, eat, this is My Body which I broke for you. Drink the cup, drink for it is my Blood shed for you. Drink, beloved drink, let the Blood cover you completely. Let its power course through you like a mighty rushing river. The life for your flesh is in the Blood. Drink. Drink and consider Jesus. Raise your glass high, victory is nigh.”
My soul is crushed and breaking with longing for Your judgments at all times. Psalm 119:20
