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
Raising me to God’s side on Your throne
Sharing with me Your place in heaven as my home

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 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
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 sinful self
And replaced it with a whole and Holy 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 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

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

Nicodemus

John 3:1-21; 7:32, 45-53; 19:38-42

Nicodemus was an intellectual
Who wanted to know God
He’d attended the religious schools
And come out pretty much on top
As a prominent religious leader
In the Jewish Pharisees sect
He had a reputation to uphold
A position of power and respect

Unlike many other Pharisees
The Law was not all Nicodemus needed
To justify his righteousness
With rule keeping obsessiveness 
Nicodemus looked for more
Perhaps for the God King David adored
The One who loved, personally
And from their sins, set people free

So when Jesus came upon the scene
With miracles and deep wisdom
Forgiving, healing, setting demonised free
Loving God‘s way in every capacity
His actions caused Nicodemus to question
If the law was all he needed for salvation
Something in Jesus was so attractive
Nicodemus knew he had to see Him

So secretly at night he came
To find the place where Jesus was staying
Acknowledging that Jesus was a prophet
Because His miracles demonstrated it
Jesus response took him by surprise
Answering Nicodemus unspoken question
Telling him of the new birth needed
If people were to see God’s Kingdom

Nicodemus could not understand
The rebirth Jesus seem to demand
How could a man like him be re-born
So long ago leaving his mother‘s womb
But Jesus spoke of a spiritual rebirth
That takes place in later life
A new heart to replace our old one
By the Holy Spirit born into God’s kingdom

Jesus knew Nicodemus knew the Scriptures
Because he was one of Israel’s religious teachers
Yet even Nicodemus had yet to see
That re-birth was God’s plan for humanity
To give each person a new heart and spirit
With God’s law of love written on it
So they could live freely in God’s kingdom
Freed from sin by God’s hand of salvation

Nicodemus wanted to understand
Just how this rebirth was to be had
Jesus reply seemed like a riddle 
With scripture woven in the middle
Designed to make Nicodemus think
And ruminate upon it’s meaning
For in truth it was still too early
To really understand Jesus role history

Yet one thing Jesus did make clear
That belief in Him was the central pillar
Those rejecting God would also hide from Him
Seeking to cover up their sin
Those seeking God would come into Jesus’ light
Where all would see the truth of their lives
Where all would see that what they have done
Was by God’s hand empowered to become

We hear little more of Nicodemus
Though he asks that justice be applied to Jesus
Yet when Jesus was dead upon the cross
Nicodemus helped Joseph, a disciple of Jesus
To take Jesus from the cross and prepare Him for the grave
An act of love and respect in anyone’s day
So I wonder if after Jesus resurrection
Nicodemus finally found Jesus was his salvation 

Light Undiminished

“The Word gave life to everything that was created, and his life brought light to everyone. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness can never extinguish it.” John 1:4-5 NLT

“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 36:26-27 NLT

“All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realms because we are united with Christ. Even before he made the world, God loved us and chose us in Christ to be holy and without fault in his eyes. God decided in advance to adopt us into his own family by bringing us to himself through Jesus Christ. This is what he wanted to do, and it gave him great pleasure.” Ephesians 1:3-5 NLT

“This is the message we heard from Jesus and now declare to you: God is light, and there is no darkness in him at all. So we are lying if we say we have fellowship with God but go on living in spiritual darkness; we are not practicing the truth. But if we are living in the light, as God is in the light, then we have fellowship with each other, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, cleanses us from all sin.” 1 John 1:5-7 NLT

Light Undiminished meditation

There was a time I did not know God personally
I knew his rules and commands but knew they were not for me
I could not love Him or others as he commanded
The deceptiveness of sin had my heart by stone surrounded

But Jesus came into my life to show his love for me
Offered me His love to live in and to give away for free
Offered me a new heart that was living and loving
Offered me a new spirit with His Holy Spirit united

Jesus Your Glory light reigns undiminished
No darkness has the power to ever overcome it
United with You, You from ALL sin cleanse us
You purify all darkness from within us
Making us pure and holy by Your Own Presence

Now I live with Jesus, united as one
His powerful light cleansing me even when I stumble
When I take the wrong direction He turns me around
Shows me the path where His life can be found

Jesus Your Glory light reigns undiminished
No darkness has the power to ever overcome it
United with You, You from ALL sin cleanse us
You purify all darkness from within us
Making us pure and holy by Your Own Presence

I need never fear my sin can taint or damage Jesus
For in His death and resurrection is the power to redeem us
To exchange our death for His eternal life
He has overcome all to give us his Glory light

Jesus Your Glory light reigns undiminished
No darkness has the power to ever overcome it
United with You, You from ALL sin cleanse us
You purify all darkness from within us
Making us pure and holy by Your Own Presence

All of sins damage can be taken to the cross
And left there to die, now powerless
Be left in exchange for Jesus resurrection life
We have this privilege every day of our life

Jesus Your Glory light reigns undiminished
No darkness has the power to ever overcome it
United with You, You from ALL sin cleanse us
You purify all darkness from within us
Making us pure and holy by Your Own Presence

Now I can, without any hesitation
Stay in the Presence of God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit
Now nothing can separate me from God’s love
For Jesus’ holiness and righteousness, He has made mine

Jesus Your Glory light reigns undiminished
No darkness has the power to ever overcome it
United with You, You from ALL sin cleanse us
Re-making us in Your Holy Image
Filling us with Your Glory light and essence
Making us pure by Your Own Presence

Inestimable Value

“For God has proved his love by giving us his greatest treasure, the gift of his Son. And since God freely offered him up as the sacrifice for us all, he certainly won’t withhold from us anything else he has to give.” Romans 8:32 TPT

Inestimable Value Meditation

God had one Beloved Son
The core of His own heart
A pure and Holy Glorious One
The image of God incarnate
Yet God let Him be sacrificed
Scoured and for us crucified
So He could raise us from the dead
As God’s Sons, with Him united

You are of inestimable value 
Just in who you are
For Jesus was the price God paid
To demonstrate your value today
And bring you home to Him again

People think that once they’ve sinned
God has no time for them
Like Adam and Eve they hide away
Try to cover the brokenness and pain
But God comes looking for each of us
To tell us His good news is for us
Because of the work that Jesus has done
We can be pure and holy, God’s beloved sons

You are of incalculable value 
Just in who you are
For Jesus was the price God paid
To demonstrate your value today
And bring you home to Him again

When Jesus was judged it was as us
For He had never sinned
When He was whipped and beaten
It was our sins that punished Him
When God’s Presence left Him
It was our old self He was in
And when the cross finally killed Him
It was our death that took Him

You are of eternal value 
Just in who you are
For Jesus was the price God paid
To demonstrate your value today
And bring you home to Him again

But death it could not hold him
For Jesus had never sinned
And the power of His righteousness
Overcame death, giving New Life to us
Raised by God’s Holy Spirit’s power
Him and us at God side, now forever
Reborn into His Holy Glory
One with God now and for eternity

You are of infinite value 
Just in who you are
For Jesus was the price God paid
To demonstrate your value today
And bring you home to Him again

Now the full Glory of God is yours
You live in Jesus righteousness
Forgiven, cleansed and holy once more
Completely released from the power of sin
Beloved of God just as Jesus is
At God’s right hand, in His Personal Presence
And together you can heal this world
United with God, loving all with His essence

You are of unfathomable value 
Just in who you are
For Jesus was the price God paid
To demonstrate your value today
And bring you home to Him again

Through all the work that Jesus has done
And God’s willing sacrifice of His Beloved Son
There is nothing you could do or say
That could make your more loved by God in any way
Today, tomorrow, your value remains
As high as Jesus, for His blood’s in your veins
You are a full member of God’s family
So take your place now, with Him eternally

You are of inestimable value 
Just in who you are
For Jesus was the price God paid
To demonstrate your value today
And bring you home to Him again

The Mind’s Transformation

“Stop imitating the ideals and opinions of the culture around you, but be inwardly transformed by the Holy Spirit through a total reformation of how you think. This will empower you to discern God’s will as you live a beautiful life, satisfying and perfect in his eyes.” Romans 12:2 TPT

When We can know
That Jesus is real
Alive in people
To give love to this world
It breaks through our defences
To fill us with His love
It transforms our being
To be His Glory

Show me please Lord
Give me Your vision
Transform me please Lord
To Your way of living

When we can know
That we were God’s planning
That He chose us personally
To be one of His family
It breaks all the lies
That tell us we’re unworthy
And restores us to wholeness
Living in God’s Glory

Show me please Lord
Give me Your vision
Transform me please Lord
To Your way of living

When we experience
The fullness of God’s forgiveness
Wiping out all our sin
So all is forgotten
It frees us to live
Each moment anew
To explore the freedom
Of living His Holy Glory

Show me please Lord
Give me Your vision
Transform me please Lord
To Your way of living

When we learn to live in
God as our main resource
A river of His life
Becomes our life’s essence
His love and forgiveness
His joy, peace and hope
Become ours to live in
And share with this world

Show me please Lord
Give me Your vision
Transform me please Lord
To Your way of living

When we learn to rely on
God’s Spirit for our thinking
Soak in His Presence
Ask questions, receive answers
The Wisdom of God
Becomes our guiding light
Transforms our hearts and minds
Renews all our thinking

Show me please Lord
Give me Your vision
Transform me please Lord
To Your way of living

When we experience
God’s power to restore us
To His loving image
Filling us with His Glory
We know there’s no limit
To what He can do through us
And we want to be active
To restore this world’s goodness

Show me please Lord
Give me Your vision
Transform me please Lord
To Your way of living

There is nothing God has
That He withholds from us
All Jesus inherits
Is through Him made ours
Forgiveness, healing
Love, joy and peace
The power to restore
To live holy, complete

Show me please Lord
Give me Your vision
Transform me please Lord
To Your way of living

So when this life
Throws it’s curveballs at us
And what’s bad looks good
Or our heart is breaking
When sickness or loss
Seem to be our portion
Turn to God in faith
With these as your questions 

Is there another way to think
A point of view I am not seeing?
Show me please Lord
Give me Your vision
Is there another way to respond
A way of being I could be living?
Transform me please Lord
To Your way of living
