Sing a new so; my new song is from Psalm 40:3+ Ps 119:117
A New Song. A new song for a new day rises up in me. Every time I think of how You breakthrough for me. A new song for a new day comes to set me free. With every breath, in every movement, I give You praise.
Break open your Word within me, ‘til Your Light shines out. Break open your Word within me, ‘til I shout out loud. With every breath, in every movement, I give You praise
Empower me to live each moment In the Light of your ways. Empower me to live each moment In the Light of your grace with every breath, in every movement; I give You praise
It’s a new day. Father whispered that to me several months ago and gave me this Word, this song; listen to His Voice for your new song, a fresh Word from heaven.
Isaiah 60 – Be radiant – GOD’S Calling you to Himself in a new way. Listen for His instruction and follow Him.
Isaiah 60:1: “Rise up in splendor and be radiant, for your light has dawned, and Yahweh’s glory now streams from you! 2: Look carefully! Darkness blankets the earth, and thick gloom covers the nations, but Yahweh arises upon you, and the brightness of his glory appears over you! 3: Nations will be attracted to your radiant light and kings to the sunrise glory of YOUR NEW DAY. You have a new day and a new song.
My new song is from Psalm 40:1-3. “I waited and waited and waited some more, patiently, knowing God would come through for me. Then, at last, he bent down and listened to my cry. He stooped down to lift me out of danger from the desolate pit I was in, out of the muddy mess I had fallen into. Now he’s lifted me up into a firm, secure place and steadied me while I walk along his ascending path. A new song for a new day rises up in me every time I think about how he breaks through for me! Ecstatic praise pours out of my mouth until everyone hears how God has set me free. Many will see his miracles; they’ll stand in awe of God and fall in love with him!”
“Now, if anyone is enfolded into Christ, he has become an entirely new person. All that is related to the old order has vanished. Behold, everything is fresh and new.” 2 Corinthians 5:17 TPT. We can Sing a new song, covered in His glory.
This New Covenant “glory” that covers us exceeds everything of the Old (2 Cor. 3:7–11), and we can be certain that God, in Christ, has made a complete provision for the well-being of our total person. It’s a new day.
Yahweh’s glory rises in our life from within, and that glory is activated, reclaimed, and released through faith.
God desires us to rise and shine in faith and with faith, which produces more faith and activates faith with increasing faith. As we do this, believing in Him, His glory rises upon us, and we shine even more. God sees faith in us; He sees Jesus in us and how we are acting and reacting, in the faith that Jesus multiplied to us, through our obedient response, to His Word. It is in that faith realm that He sees us shining. Fasten your faith in God alone, believing in His love, His faithfulness, and His Word.
I Peter 1:8
We want to live an ascended life in the realms of glory—the place where God reigns.
Glory – the splendor, holiness, and majesty of God. The word glory conveys a sense of heavy dignity. It is the very essence of His Divine Presence. IT’S JESUS.
Effulgence: the ability to shine brightly filled with radiant beauty and goodness. Filled with Jesus. His glory is the manifested Presence of God on the earth. We carry this glory. This magnificent effulgence. FORGIVEN.HEALED.RESTORED.EMPOWERED.
ADAM – US.
We continue on the path of righteousness, growing in a progression of faith by continually saying yes to the Holy Spirit until we are prepared and ready to receive the bridal garment of glory. This is the end of the journey on the earth for us to prepare and be ready to rule and reign with Him here, co-labor with Him, and return with Him to reign in the time of the Millennium. God is working this very position into our lives. It’s a new day. Sing a new song of victory. It comes from Jesus.
Come to the table, and receive. Come to the table, and believe.
Psalm 94:12-13(Mess) – He provides a “circle of quiet” within the clamor of evil.
Ephesians 2:14 – He, Himself is our PEACE.
Empathy – Getting a sense of another’s mind.
“Jesus’ gentleness toward sinners flows from His ability to read their hearts.” – PR
“Beyond the grumpiest poses and defense mechanisms, beyond their arrogance and airs, beyond their sneers and curses, Jesus saw little children who hadn’t been loved enough and had ceased growing because someone ceased believing in them.” – Brennan Manning
“Hostility and Estrangement” = “Enmity and Alienation”
Human Wisdom’s solution – Focus on circumstances.
True Wisdom – Focus on man’s estrangement from GOD.
Romans 5:1 – Jesus, our bridge back to God.
Luke 5:1-11 “Two Boats” – Freedom of choice.
Proverbs 18:10(TPT) God is a tower of strength for the lovers of God’s delight to run into.
The “human way” has a foundation built on unredeemed and unrepentant hearts with lives lived in the ILLUSION of SELF-IMPORTANCE.
These lack the humility necessary to ASK GOD for what they need.
Psalm 25:8 “Good and upright is the Lord who shows sinners the WAY.”
Ephesians 2:11-14(TPT) – “Our reconciling Peace is Jesus!”
Psalm 121:1-2 – “Our help comes from the Lord, the creator of heaven and earth.”
Philippians 3:20-21(TPT) – “We are a colony of heaven on earth….”
James 3:18 – The Peacemakers: Sowers of righteousness.
Matthew 5:9 – “Blessed are the PEACEMAKERS for they will be called the children of God.”
We are in the season of Advent, celebrating the second Sunday, a celebration of Jesus- The Way.
This season is a time when we have an anticipation of His coming.
We have an expectancy of His Presence,
much like when we sit at His feet in worship in our prayer closet,
prepared. When we come together on Sunday, we wait for Him and expect His arrival.
Jesus is the Way, the Truth, and the Life.
He is the Way to God.
Jesus is the Light of the world. He lights the Way to God.
Some truths from John 14…
Let not your heart be troubled… [The remedy for a troubled mind is to believe in Jesus as the Way. Christ is the sinner’s Way to the Father and heaven.]
Jesus continues: where I go, you know, and the way you know.
Then Thomas says: Lord, we do not know where You are going, and how can we know the way?
Jesus replies, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me” (John 14:6). He is God manifest in the flesh- the very image and likeness of God.
The verse following is interesting:
John 14:7 -If you had known ME, you would have known My Father also, and from now on, you know Him and have seen Him.
In other words – If you had recognized me…my character, my design,
Who I am, the glorified Son of God…saw what I was doing…
Then Philip says, Lord, show us the Father, and it is sufficient for us.
Jesus replies He who has seen Me has seen the Father. The words that I speak to you I do not speak on My own authority, but the Father who dwells in ME does the works. Believe Me that I am in the Father and the Father in Me…
Then He shares His Truth: His Way:
If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our home with him. He who does not love Me does not keep My words, and the word which you hear is not Mine but the Father’s who sent me.
JESUS IS THE WAY TO THE FATHER AND THE FATHER’S LOVE. BELIEVE.
Then a few verses down in John 14, Jesus promises to send the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in His name, and He will teach all things. He is the Spirit of wisdom and revelation…Who reveals the Christ to us and causes us to ‘know’ Him, His plans, and to know that we are “accepted in the Beloved.”
He loves us; we can love others with that same love.
The Holy Spirit of the Living God is the Teacher. The Spirit of God’s intention is not to help us in our personal mission but to press us into greater submission to God so that we can bear much fruit in the world and look like Jesus.
John 15: 9-11
“When we read the book of Joshua, we learn the ways of God:
how he moves us forward, how we triumph over our enemies, and how we do the impossible.” TPT
We can read the gospels.
Jesus is the Bread of Life, the Light of the world, the Door, the Good Shepherd, the Resurrection, and the Life, the True Vine,
