Beyond our Limitations

Beyond Our Limitations

Lord, we need to move beyond
This place that we are in,
To touch your very heart, O God,
To have your love within

We need to move beyond the limits
We’ve placed upon our lives,
To move into more of you,
Revealed through Jesus Christ

Help us to keep pressing on
As, by faith, we take more steps,
To really conquer our inner selves,
To know you with more depth

Help us, Lord, to overcome,
To be focused more on you
No matter how hard it gets for us,
We need to press on through

Though Satan rises with hell’s fury
With vengeance to devour,
We pray, O God, you’ll arise in us
And fight with holy power

For greater are you within us
Than the enemy of our souls,
For you have power and might, O God
And your Spirit is in control

We know the victory shall be ours,
Though for now the heat is on
Help us, Lord, to not give up,
For by this, you make us strong

You will sustain us in your love
Through what we’re going through
And deliver us the other side
Victorious in you!

Psalm 2

Psalm 2

New King James Version (NKJV)

The Messiah’s Triumph and Kingdom

Why do the nations rage,
And the people plot a vain thing?

The kings of the earth set themselves,
And the rulers take counsel together,
Against the Lord and against His Anointed, saying,

“Let us break Their bonds in pieces
And cast away Their cords from us.”

He who sits in the heavens shall laugh;
The Lord shall hold them in derision.

Then He shall speak to them in His wrath,
And distress them in His deep displeasure:

“Yet I have set My King
On My holy hill of Zion.”

“I will declare the decree:
The Lord has said to Me,
‘You are My Son,
Today I have begotten You.

Ask of Me, and I will give You
The nations for Your inheritance,
And the ends of the earth for Your possession.

You shall break[a] them with a rod of iron;
You shall dash them to pieces like a potter’s vessel.’”

Now therefore, be wise, O kings;
Be instructed, you judges of the earth.

Serve the Lord with fear,
And rejoice with trembling.

Kiss the Son,[b] lest [c] He be angry,
And you perish in the way,
When His wrath is kindled but a little.
Blessed are all those who put their trust in Him.

Who Will You Serve Today?

We serve a mighty God who loves us with His everlasting love, Our God is Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, the Prince of Peace, the King of Kings, Lord of Lords, the Bright and Morning Star, the Fairest of Ten Thousand. He is Faithful and True, His Faithfulness is New Every Morning. Indeed our God is Great!

In whom will you serve today?

I join with Joshua 24:15 and say….

And if it seems evil to you to serve the LORD, choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you dwell. But as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.”

My prayer for you my friend’s is that you will chose to serve the Lord with all your hearts….

Psalm 1

Psalm 1 (NKJV)

BOOK ONE: Psalms 1—41

The Way of the Righteous and the End of the Ungodly

1 Blessed is the man
Who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly,
Nor stands in the path of sinners,
Nor sits in the seat of the scornful;

But his delight is in the law of the Lord,
And in His law he meditates day and night.

He shall be like a tree
Planted by the rivers of water,
That brings forth its fruit in its season,
Whose leaf also shall not wither;
And whatever he does shall prosper.

The ungodly are not so,
But are like the chaff which the wind drives away.

Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment,
Nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.

For the Lord knows the way of the righteous,
But the way of the ungodly shall perish.

Philippians 1:9-11 (New Living Translation)

9 I pray that your love will overflow more and more, and that you will keep on growing in knowledge and understanding. 10 For I want you to understand what really matters, so that you may live pure and blameless lives until the day of Christ’s return. 11 May you always be filled with the fruit of your salvation—the righteous character produced in your life by Jesus Christ[a]—for this will bring much glory and praise to God.
