Plain & Simple

O God, plain and simple we need You
We just plain need You
Nothing else will do
You are the One who

You created the lands
Hold all in Your hands
Gave us Your commands
Nothing else stands

As we seek Your face
Meet us in this place
Our sins come erase
Cover us with grace

Attend to our call
Remove every wall
Standing erect and tall
O God, help us all

You are more than aware
Tend to each prayer
We know that You care
Keep us from despair

Ensuring Victory *Joshua 15-19

Joshua 15-19
~~~
Even though the enemy is powerful, larger in quantity, larger in height and stature, had better weapons and chariots they were defeated because God – the only true God – was with the Israelites. God went before His people ensuring the victory.
~~~
We, who are God’s children, will gain victory over adverse situations and events if we follow His leading. God is a gracious God, who wants His people to succeed successfully. As Scripture says, in the New Testament, Jesus came to seek and save the lost. Just call on His Name and you will be saved – not might be saved, not probably will be saved, but He will save your life. Yes, our God is gracious, kind, loving, and always victorious.
~~~
Lord, God of Israel help us to keep our eyes on You as you lead us through the storms and hardships in life. Go before us and clear our way, so that we can stand victorious giving You all the honor, glory, and fame due Your Name.

 

Name

Call on the Name
Call on the Name of the Lord
All powerful in might
Call on the Name, Jesus
And you will be saved
~~~
Saved from death and darkness
Saved from evil and sin
Call on the Name Jesus
And He will rescue you
From peril and from
The clutch of evil
~~~
Death cannot touch Him
Darkness has to flee
Peril’s hand has to release
The enemy has to yield
To God Most High
~~~
The Mighty One
Who is, who was, and will
Will always be
The One who will come
~~~
He will come for His own
In power; in might
It will be an awesome sight
For those who know
With Him they shall go
~~~
So put your trust in the One
The One who again will come
The One with the only powerful Name
Due all glory, power, and fame
Yes, His mighty, glorious Name
Jesus, Jesus, Jesus

Cleanse Us

Lord, come and take our sinful ways away
Come Lord and cleanse Your church today
Set us free from the power of sin
Come and cleanse us deep within
May the church bring to You a true repentance
On You, Lord, the churches’ full dependence
That the church would put all foolishness aside
In You, Lord the church would fully abide
As for the church, Lord, You would always be first
Only You, Lord, can fill the hunger and the thirst
Remove what causes the church to stumble
Help each member to submit and be humble
Lord hear our voice, it’s on You we call
Remove our sin, cleanse, and restore us all
To the Mighty One who sits on the Throne
Our hope and faith are in You alone

As We Walk

Lord, we come to You in one voice
Our hearts are thankful and rejoice
You have given each one a prayer
We are here because we care
~~~
Lord, we can come and pray to You
But what do You want us to do
Keep confusion from setting in
Keep Your people clean from sin
~~~
Help us to choose what is right
To do what is right in Your sight
Keep us from giving into fear
Open our ears, Your voice to hear
~~~
There is always peace inside
When in You, Lord, we abide
You are so gracious and kind
In You reality we find
~~~
Lord, come and take us by the hand
Help us to walk, in Your Word stand
May we obey Your every command
As we walk with You throughout the land

The Promise *Joshua 14

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Joshua+14&version=NKJV;NIV
~~~
God is concerned about community. If one man (human) out of the whole community does what is right – follows God wholeheartedly then only he will be blessed by God.
~~~
God keeps His promises. It might take time, but it will come true whether we believe it or not. It took 45 years for Caleb to receive God’s promise. He was 40 years old when the promise came, and now he’s 85 years old. You might think – Ahhh!!! But look at what Caleb says 9 So on that day Moses swore to me, ‘The land on which your feet have walked will be your inheritance and that of your children forever, because you have followed the LORD my God wholeheartedly.’
10 “Now then, just as the LORD promised, He has kept me alive for forty-five years since the time He said this to Moses, while Israel moved about in the wilderness. So here I am today, eighty-five years old! 11 I am still as strong today as the day Moses sent me out; I’m just as vigorous to go out to battle now as I was then.” Caleb is more than alive and doing well. He is strong and vigorous, full of energy – just the same as when he was when he was in his younger days. He is ready and able and wants to do what would seem impossible. He has the right frame of mind. He knows he can attain the goal, because God is with him, helping him, and God keeps His promises. And so it was.
~~~
So, no matter your age, God will keep His promises. He will give us physically what we need to accomplish our goal with success. We only need to trust Him and take Him at His Word. Age does not matter. It is faith that counts.
~~~
Thank You God for Your faithfulness in keeping all of Your promises. Grow us up in our faith in You, so that we can trust You no matter what “things” look like. Draw us to You our King. Help us by strengthening us to walk by faith and not by sight. Be blessed, glorified, and honored in our lives. Hallelujah! Praise Your Holy Name.
