Believing the Promises of God - in His Word

Against all hope, Abraham in hope believed… Without weakening in his faith… Yet he did not waver through unbelief regarding the promise of God, but was strengthened in his faith and gave glory to God, being fully persuaded that God had power to do what He had promised. ~ Romans 4 [selected 18-21]

Breath - from God's Word

I woke up sick as a dog this morning [the enemy's weak attempt] and prepared to sing the song that speaks of my entire testimony about God's Word in my life over the last two years. My friend, Cheri, honored me by singing the melody - so I could do harmony [my favorite part]. God was faithful and our worship time was only by His grace and goodness! Please take time to read every word of the song - and perhaps search the scriptures for where they come from. It's powered by the Word as well! Bless you Keith and Kristyn, for writing words of power!

Speak, O Lord
Song by Keith and Kristyn Getty

Speak, O Lord, as we come to You—
To receive the food
of Your Holy Word
Take Your Truth, plant it deep in us
Shape and fashion us
In Your likeness
That the light of Christ
might be seen today
In our acts of love
and our deeds of faith.

Speak, O Lord, and fulfill in us__
all Your purposes for Your glory

Teach us, Lord, full obedience
Holy reverence,
true humility___

Test our thoughts
and our attitudes
in the radiance
of Your purity.

Cause our faith to rise,
cause our eyes to see___
Your majestic love
and authority.

Words of power
that can never fail___
Let their truth prevail
over unbelief.

Speak, O Lord
and renew our minds
Help us grasp the heights
of Your plans for us.

Truths unchanged
from the dawn of time
that will echo down
through eternity.

And by grace we’ll stand
on Your promises__
And by faith we’ll walk
as You walk – with – us.

Speak, O Lord
till Your church is built
and the earth is filled
with Your glory!
Choosing JOY,
[30 Days of Faith Tested]
