Your Delightful Child

Your Delightful Child

“For it was always in his perfect plan to adopt us as his delightful children, through our union with Jesus, the Anointed One, so that his tremendous love that cascades over us would glorify his grace—for the same love he has for his Beloved One, Jesus, he has for us. And this unfolding plan brings him great pleasure! And he chose us to be his very own, joining us to himself even before he laid the foundation of the universe! Because of his great love, he ordained us, so that we would be seen as holy in his eyes with an unstained innocence.”
‭‭Ephesians‬ ‭1:4-6‬ ‭TPT‬‬

 Genesis 1:1-25 and

God Chose Us

 “And he chose us to be his very own, joining us to himself even before he laid the foundation of the universe! Because of his great love, he ordained us, so that we would be seen as holy in his eyes with an unstained innocence.”
 Ephesians 1:4 TPT
 

 God chose us 
 To be His very own
 Joining us to Himself 
 Before He made the universe!
 Lovingly ordaining us
 As His holy ones
 

 The very first people
 Were innocent and pure
 Made in God’s image
 He gave them this earth to rule
 And a choice to stay like that
 Or go their own way without Him
 

 They chose to go their own way
 To rule without God
 And it broke their hearts and spirits
 As shame and fear took control
 Destroying their relationships 
 With God and other people
 

 But God had chosen us 
 To be His very own
 Joining us to Himself 
 Before He made the universe!
 Lovingly ordaining us
 As His holy ones
 

 Death was the outcome
 Of choosing life without God
 But God had plans to overcome
 The damage we have done
 And restore us to life in Him
 Living with Him as one
 

 Because God chose us 
 To be His very own
 Joining us to Himself 
 Before He made the universe!
 Lovingly ordaining us
 As His holy ones
 

 God sent us a Savior
 A holy, righteous One
 His unity unbroken
 With this most beloved Son
 His Son became human
 To bring us home to Him
 

 Because God chose us 
 To be His very own
 Joining us to Himself 
 Before He made the universe!
 Lovingly ordaining us
 As His holy ones
 

 Jesus lived an amazing life
 That only God‘s true Son could
 Full of forgiveness, love and wisdom
 That no one truly understood
 But the light of His Presence 
 Showed God‘s power to overcome
 

 As one with humanity
 Jesus took our broken identity
 Took our wrongs and condemnation
 Into His death like they were His
 Freeing us from their prison
 To live in His powerful resurrection 
 

 Because God chose us 
 To be His very own
 Joining us to Himself 
 Before He made the universe!
 Lovingly ordaining us
 As His holy ones
 

 This gift of restoration
 Of new life, one with God
 With His powerful Holy Spirit
 Imparting all He is to us
 His holiness and righteousness now central to our being
 His wisdom and insight, our thinking healing
 

 Now One with God 
 We can hear His voice daily
 Do all life with Him
 Empowered by His Spirit 
 To be God’s Sons like Jesus
 All God’s Kingdom inherit
 

 Because God chose us 
 To be His very own
 Joining us to Himself 
 Before He made the universe!
 Lovingly ordaining us
 As His holy ones
 

 The life that Jesus lived
 Full of forgiveness, love and wisdom
 And the power to overcome
 Our brokenness with His healing
 Now flows daily from us
 Through our unity and oneness
 

 This is the answer 
 To all the worlds problems
 Enabling us to care 
 For all creation
 As God’s children and sons
 Fill this world with love and blessings
 

 Because God chose us 
 To be His very own
 Joining us to Himself 
 Before He made the universe!
 Lovingly ordaining us
 As His holy ones

The Light of Your Life


“In the very beginning the Living Expression was already there. And the Living Expression was with God, yet fully God. They were together— face-to-face, in the very beginning. And through his creative inspiration this Living Expression made all things, for nothing has existence apart from him! Life came into being because of him, for his life is light for all humanity. And this Living Expression is the Light that bursts through gloom— the Light that darkness could not diminish!” John 1:1-5 TPT

Jesus I Rejoice In

““Then I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you will be clean. Your filth will be washed away, and you will no longer worship idols. And I will give you a new heart, and I will put a new spirit in you. I will take out your stony, stubborn heart and give you a tender, responsive heart. And I will put my Spirit in you so that you will follow my decrees and be careful to obey my regulations. “And you will live in Israel, the land I gave your ancestors long ago. You will be my people, and I will be your God. I will cleanse you of your filthy behavior. I will give you good crops of grain, and I will send no more famines on the land. I will give you great harvests from your fruit trees and fields, and never again will the surrounding nations be able to scoff at your land for its famines.”
Ezekiel 36:25-30 NLT

Jesus I rejoice in the fullness of Your cleansing
To erase all past mistakes and redirect my current intentions
Knowing all that’s wrong in me has been by You redeemed
And I can now rest in Your Spirit’s direction

Oh the beauty of Your Salvation
Giving me New Life at Your cost and intention
Love that declares over me “You are forgiven
And born anew in My resurrection!”

Jesus I rejoice in the new heart You’ve given me
A tender, loving heart full of Your love’s direction
No longer broken and sin hardened into stone
Because You dwell now in my heart and we are One.

Oh the beauty of Your Salvation
Giving me New Life at Your cost and intention
Love that declares over me “You are forgiven
And born anew in My resurrection!”

Jesus I rejoice in my new spirit
Whole and holy, through Your deeds and merit
Enabling me to live by Your side eternally
As a child of God’s Kingdom, all that’s Yours I too inherit

Oh the beauty of Your Salvation
Giving me New Life at Your cost and intention
Love that declares over me “You are forgiven
And born anew in My resurrection!”

Jesus I rejoice in being bound to Your Spirit
My spirit one with Yours, sealed into Your merit

Sharing with me Your place in heaven as my home

Giving me New Life at Your cost and intention
Love that declares over me “You are forgiven
And born anew in My resurrection!”

Jesus I rejoice in the harvest You create
Through and around me so all can see Your Kingdom’s greatness
The power of Your Salvation blessing me and others
So the world can see Your Glory, Your loving Presence

Oh the beauty of Your Salvation
Giving me New Life at Your cost and intention
Love that declares over me “You are forgiven
And born anew in My resurrection!”

When My Life Began Again

When My Life Began Again (link to audio)


When my life began again in You Jesus
My old self died with You on the cross
And You gave me a brand new, loving life
Filled me with everything that You are
Renewed each day in Your Resurrection Life

When my life began again in You Jesus
You took my sins, the wrongs I’ve done
And replaced them with Your Righteousness

And replaced it with a whole and Holy One

Renewed each day in Your Resurrection Life

When my life began again in You Jesus
You took my broken and hardened heart
And replaced it with a whole and loving one
Filled me with everything that You are
Renewed each day in Your Resurrection Life

When my life began again in You Jesus
You took my broken and wayward spirit
And replaced it with a whole and loving one
Filled with everything that You are
Renewed each day in Your Resurrection Life

When my life began again in You Jesus
You took my brand new living spirit
And joined it to Your Holy Spirit of life
Filled with everything that You are
Renewed each day in Your Resurrection Life

Now it’s not just me who lives
But the Trinity in me too
Together as One for all time
Embraced in Your Love for eternity

My life began again in You Jesus
I live through Your indwelling power
As water overflows and fills a fountain
I’m filled with everything that You are
Renewed each day in Your Resurrection Life

““Then I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you will be clean. Your filth will be washed away, and you will no longer worship idols. And I will give you a new heart, and I will put a new spirit in you. I will take out your stony, stubborn heart and give you a tender, responsive heart. And I will put my Spirit in you so that you will follow my decrees and be careful to obey my regulations.” Ezekiel 36:25-27 NLT
“For he [Jesus] is the complete fullness of deity living in human form. And our own completeness is now found in him. We are completely filled with God as Christ’s fullness overflows within us. He is the Head of every kingdom and authority in the universe! Through our union with him we have experienced circumcision of heart. All of the guilt and power of sin has been cut away and is now extinct because of what Christ, the Anointed One, has accomplished for us. For we’ve been buried with him into his death. Our “baptism into death” also means we were raised with him when we believed in God’s resurrection power, the power that raised him from death’s realm. This “realm of death” describes our former state, for we were held in sin’s grasp. But now, we’ve been resurrected out of that “realm of death” never to return, for we are forever alive and forgiven of all our sins!
...we receive directly from him, and his life supplies vitality into every part of his body through the joining ligaments connecting us all as one. He is the divine Head who guides his body and causes it to grow by the supernatural power of God.” Colossians 2:9-13, 19b TPT

The Fullness of Your Presence

The Fullness of Your Presence
“For he [Jesus] is the complete fullness of deity living in human form. And our own completeness is now found in him. We are completely filled with God as Christ’s fullness overflows within us.” Colossians 2:9-10a TPT
“Since we first heard about you, we’ve kept you always in our prayers that you would receive the perfect knowledge of God’s pleasure over your lives, making you reservoirs of every kind of wisdom and spiritual understanding. We pray that you would walk in the ways of true righteousness, pleasing God in every good thing you do. Then you’ll become fruit-bearing branches, yielding to his life, and maturing in the rich experience of knowing God in his fullness! And we pray that you would be energized with all his explosive power from the realm of his magnificent glory, filling you with great hope. Your hearts can soar with joyful gratitude when you think of how God made you worthy to receive the glorious inheritance freely given to us by living in the light.”
Colossians 1:9-12 TPT


Lord I receive the fullness of Your Presence
So that every moment You are part of My essence
To feel Your Glory fill every part of my body
To know my heart, mind and spirit are one with You in unity


Nothing in this world is more precious than Your Presence
And the awareness that You bring of God’s pleasure in us

An equal in God’s heart because You paid my dues


Lord I receive the fullness of Your Presence
So that every moment You are part of My essence
To feel Your Glory fill every part of my body
To know my heart, mind and spirit are one with You in unity


There is nothing more valuable than Your wisdom and insight
To guide my thoughts, direction and actions

To bring glory to You in all my interactions 


Lord I receive the fullness of Your Presence
So that every moment You are part of My essence
To feel Your Glory fill every part of my body

As You clothe me with Your righteousness 
Cleansing me from all my sin’s mess
I want to live Your holiness 
Be part of Your growing fruitfulness


Lord I receive the fullness of Your Presence
So that every moment You are part of My essence
To feel Your Glory fill every part of my body
To know my heart, mind and spirit are one with You in unity

So that every moment You are part of My essence
To feel Your Glory fill every part of my body
To know my heart, mind and spirit are one with You in unity


In You my heart soars with joyful gratitude 
When I think of how God has made me worthy 
To freely receive Your glorious inheritance 
Living in the light of Your magnificent Glory


Lord I receive the fullness of Your Presence

We Were Designed

Ephesians 1:4-6; Genesis 1:26-27; 3; Exodus 20:18-21; Exodus 32; Psalm 106


We were designed to live as one with God
From the very beginning when we were imagined in His heart
He wanted us to be members of his family
To be united with Him, Father, Spirit and Son


When Adam and Eve were born into this world
They were free to choose if they would follow  God
When they chose independence of God for their direction
This damaged who they were, broke their heart, mind and spirit


Shame about their actions now became their driving force
In fear they hid their brokenness from God and others
Blame shifting and lies became their solutions
Faith and trust was broken, in God, self and others


The result of this brokenness is detailed in the Bible
As people hurt each other and many rejected God
God’s judgment and destruction and confusion of their language
Reduced the damage they did but was not the solution


We were designed to live as one with God
From the very beginning when we were imagined in His heart
He wanted us to be members of his family
To be united with Him, Father, Spirit and Son


God chose Israel as His nation and His people
Freeing them from slavery with the wealth of their captors
God’s mighty miracles to rescue and sustain them
Did not stop them from worshiping manmade idols


When God invited Israel to be his special people
To be in His Presence, to speak to them in person
In fear and shame Israel refused this invitation
Asking  for His instructions which from a distance they’d obey


Armed with God’s Law Israel though they had the answer
To pleasing God from a distance which they thought safe
But laws do not make a broken people whole
As people and a nation God they rarely obeyed


We were designed to live as one with God
From the very beginning when we were imagined in His heart
He wanted us to be members of his family
To be united with Him, Father, Spirit and Son


But God had a solution for our brokenness
To make all our sins, over us, powerless
He had a way for our broken self to die
And be reborn in Him, in the twinkling of an eye


God sent Jesus to show us the life
We could live if we were truly God’s child
And to take our brokenness into Him
And die for us, with us and our sin


Then God gave us Jesus powerful resurrection 
As our new life and our new direction
A new heart and spirit, made in His image
United with His Spirit to complete our family lineage


We were designed to live as one with God
From the very beginning when we were imagined in His heart
He wanted us to be members of his family
To be united with Him, Father, Spirit and Son


Now we can rejoice as part of God’s family
Living in and from His Kingdom, now, daily
His love and peace, righteousness and joy
Is our dwelling place once we are re-born


So when you see the troubles in this world
People behaving badly, people being hurt
Know that the solution is not found in man and law
Only re-birth in Jesus has the power to heal us all


We were designed to live as one with God
From the very beginning when we were imagined in His heart
He wanted us to be members of his family
To be united with Him, Father, Spirit and Son

Huggs

“I am contending for you that your hearts will be wrapped in the comfort of heaven and woven together into love’s fabric. This will give you access to all the riches of God as you experience the revelation of God’s great mystery—Christ. For our spiritual wealth is in him, like hidden treasure waiting to be discovered—heaven’s wisdom and endless riches of revelation knowledge.
In the same way you received Jesus our Lord and Messiah by faith, continue your journey of faith, progressing further into your union with him! Your spiritual roots go deeply into his life as you are continually infused with strength, encouraged in every way. For you are established in the faith you have absorbed and enriched by your devotion to him!
For he is the complete fullness of deity living in human form. And our own completeness is now found in him. We are completely filled with God as Christ’s fullness overflows within us. He is the Head of every kingdom and authority in the universe!” Colossians 2:2-3, 6-7, 9-10 TPT
Ephesians 6:10-11, 14-18 TPT

Resurrection

John 11:11-44 and Matthew 28:1-10

Jesus had a friend named Lazarus
Who died young of an unnamed sickness
Though his sisters had sent for Jesus
Jesus delayed in coming to cure the illness
By the time he arrived at Lazarus’ home
Everyone knew that Lazarus was gone
Into the grave covered by a large stone
Dead until God called all the dead home

Lazarus’ sisters, Martha and Mary
Were very upset as anyone would be
In their grief they cried out to Jesus
If You’d been here You could’ve healed Lazarus
They though Jesus had waited to long
And now that Lazarus was 4 days in the tomb
It was too late for a miracle resurrection
They would have to wait till all dead were risen

Jesus said,
“You don’t have to wait [for the future]
I am the Resurrection, and Eternal Life [now]
Anyone who clings to me in faith
Any one who lives by believing in Me
Even though he dies, he will live forever
As I use the power God has given Me”

No one believed that Jesus could give
Life to someone who was so long dead
Yet at Jesus command they opened the grave
To see what Jesus would do that day
Jesus commanded that Lazarus come out
And much to the shock and surprise of the crowd
Out of the grave dead Lazarus walked
Alive once more as a man in this world

Jesus said,
“You don’t have to wait [for the future]
I am the Resurrection, and Eternal Life [now]
Anyone who clings to me in faith
Any one who lives by believing in Me
Even though he dies, he will live forever
As I use the power God has given Me”

When Jesus died on the cross sometime later
And He was buried by Joseph of Arimathea
A stone was rolled over the entrance to the grave
And guards stationed there to make sure that’s how it stayed
Yet three days later as they came to the grave
The two Marys saw an angel roll the stone away
Power shook the earth and made the guards faint
The angel told them Jesus was alive again

Jesus said,
“You don’t have to wait [for the future]
I am the Resurrection, and Eternal Life [now]
Anyone who clings to me in faith
Any one who lives by believing in Me
Even though he dies, he will live forever
As I use the power God has given Me”

In Jesus we see that God has the power
To give life to the dead no matter the hour
God can raise the dead to new life again
Here in this world where death seems to reign
In these events Jesus demonstrated
God’s power for us unto salvation
Though death is our sins penalty
God can overcome death for our resurrection

Jesus said,
“You don’t have to wait [for the future]
I am the Resurrection, and Eternal Life [now]
Anyone who clings to me in faith
Any one who lives by believing in Me
Even though he dies, he will live forever
As I use the power God has given Me”

So when we see that we’re bound by sin
And death it seems is our only end
Jesus offers us His Resurrection Life
Eternal, holy, and powerful, as ours
And a heart that loves like only God can
A new spirit to make us a new woman or man
United as One with the Holy Trinity
Through Jesus’ sacrifice, a new life for us today

Jesus says,
“You don’t have to wait [for the future]
I am the Resurrection, and Eternal Life [now]
Anyone who clings to me in faith
Any one who lives by believing in Me
Even though he dies, he will live forever
As I use the power God has given Me”

So anytime things are not as they should be
As health, provisions or relationships can seem
When the world around us seems only broken
Or our inner world has begun to darken
We can turn to Jesus and cling to Him and His promise
To exchange life for death, light for all our darkness
And ask Him to reveal His resurrection life
Powerfully in us now to overcome all strife

Jesus says,
“You don’t have to wait [for the future]
I am the Resurrection, and Eternal Life [now]
Anyone who clings to me in faith
Any one who lives by believing in Me
Even though he dies, he will live forever
As I use the power God has given Me”

“Martha said to Jesus, “My Lord, if only you had come sooner, my brother wouldn’t have died. But I know that if you were to ask God for anything, he would do it for you.” Jesus told her, “Your brother will rise and live.” She replied, “Yes, I know he will rise with everyone else on resurrection day.” “Martha,” Jesus said, “ You don’t have to wait until then. I am the Resurrection, and I am Life Eternal. Anyone who clings to me in faith, even though he dies, will live forever. And the one who lives by believing in me will never die. Do you believe this?”” John 11:21-26 TPT
