We need each other
Like parts of the body
Which are joined together
To work in harmony.
Friend, we need each other
Like husband and wife
Like Father and mother
Complementing their lives.
Mate, we need each other
Like the hands of a clock
Make meaning together
Rather than running amok.
So et us flow together
Sing from the same hymn sheet
That’s how we can flower
And become complete.
Togetherness is power
One plus one making three
Towering in synergy
Rising in symphony.
Unity and Diversity in One Body
12For as the body is one and has many members, but all the members of that one body, being many, are one body, so also is Christ.1Cor 12:12
8 Five of you shall chase a hundred, and a hundred of you shall put ten thousand to flight; your enemies shall fall by the sword before you
From ordinary to extraordinary
and natural to supernatural
That’s Jesus’ specialty
His indisputable credential
Bring it to Him
No matter how hopeless
Bring it to Him
Regardless of the darkness
Bring it to Him:
That dream that is dead
That dream that is shattered
That womb that is dead
That destiny denied
Bound, emasculated, imprisoned
Battered, barred and broken.
Bring to Him:
The years the locust has eaten
It is resurrection time
Dead dreams shall live because Jesus is the Resurrection and the Life!
Acknowledge Him as Lord and you will see the incredible:
that which will amaze you, astound you: the spectacular, extraordinary, supernatural.
Let Him touch you and
The ordinary will become extraordinary;
the natural will become supernatural.
25 Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live.
26 And whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die. Do you believe this?”John11:25
39 Jesus said, “Take away the stone.” Martha, the sister of him who was dead, said to Him, “Lord, by this time there is a stench, for he has been dead four days.”
40 Jesus said to her, “Did I not say to you that if you would believe you would see the glory of God?”
41 Then they took away the stone from the place where the dead man was lying. And Jesus lifted up His eyes and said, “Father, I thank You that You have heard Me.
42 And I know that You always hear Me, but because of the people who are standing by I said this, that they may believe that You sent Me.”
43 Now when He had said these things, He cried with a loud voice, “Lazarus, come forth!”
44 And he who had died came out bound hand and foot with graveclothes, and his face was wrapped with a cloth. Jesus said to them, “Loose him, and let him go.”
‘These things says the First and the Last, who was dead, and came to life:Rev2:8
These things says He who is holy, He who is true, “He who has the key of David, He who opens and no one shuts, and shuts and no one opens”:Rev3:7
See, I have set before you an open door, and no one can shut it;Rev3:8
Soul, Salvation Siren Sounds
Pleading with those unsaved
When, when will you be found?
For you He died and rose.
Summer is past and you’re not saved?
The clock is ticking fast
And the day is far spent
Why chase what will not last?
Why mortgage your future?
Adam, Adam! Where are you?
Why put your fingers in your ears?
I have paid the price for you
Why have you chosen to die?
Why are you ignoring my plea?
Why will you not surrender?
Why do you prefer to flee?
Why are you spurning My love?
Summer is past and you’re not saved?
Lord, in this month of opening- aperio
When buds and blossoms abound, bloom,
May I see a great harvest- open heaven.
Mighty God, exceed my all expectations.
Let there be the turning of my table for good.
Let this long-running famine come to an end, O Lord.
May the years the locust has eaten be restored-
Manifold, superabundantly- a hundred-fold.
May my heart pant for the Living God,
As the deer pants after water,
As the dry land is yearning for water.
Open my eyes, O Lord, as never before,
In this month of openings,
To see beyond the seen.
Pour out Your anointing, O God
To break every yoke of bondage,
Barricade, stagnation and retrogression,
For your matchless Name’s sake.
You opened the eyes of Abraham to see
The vastness of blessings in store for him.
You opened the eyes of Hagar to see
The well within her reach, to which she was blind.
You opened the eyes of Abraham
to see the ram caught in the thicket.
You opened the eyes of blind Bartimaeus
and the man who was born blind.
You opened the eyes of Balaam to see the angel
barricading the way when he was disobedient.
Lord, You opened the eyes of the servant of Elisha
To see the heavenly hosts standing guard
in protection of your prophet.
Affirming ‘There are more with us than are against us’
Jolt me from slumber, O Lord, to work while it is day.
May I redeem the time, leaving no stone unturned
And live with eternity in view.
Keep me, O Lord, from chasing the wind.
Help me to set my face like a flint like Ezekiel and Jeremiah
and Paul in pursuance of vision,
‘That I may know Him and the power of His resurrection
and the fellowship of His suffering…
Forgetting those things which are behind
and reach forth to those things
which are ahead, I press for the mark
of the high calling which is in Christ Jesus.’
O that will I be tenacious, consistent and persevering
like Nehemiah in the face of opposition
and blackmail and ridicule and distraction
to stand strong in You and your mighty power,
putting on the whole armour of God, to stand in the evil day.
Teach me, O Lord, to wait upon You
to renew my strength as to mount up with wings
as an eagle, run and not be weary,
walk and not faint.
Help me, Lord, to make veryValleyofBaccaI face
a place of spring, to spring forth to your glory,
and come forth like gold after going through the crucible, the valley of the shadow of death.
And when I come to myGardenofGethsemane,
Lord, may I not buckle under the pressure
but trust in Your faithfulness,
knowing that Your grace is sufficient for me,
and in weakness, Your strength shall be made perfect.
Mighty God. I pray that like my Lord
I will say whole-heartedly,
‘Not my will but yours be done.
Thank you, O Lord, for strength
for today and bright hope for tomorrow.
Great is thy faithfulness!
