Poem: Winter is past


Let us sing at the crack of dawn
And arouse the skies, my maiden!
For the grief of yore is gone,
And our hearts are now joy-laden.
Through trust which outbraves the foes,
That looks on hope, ever more confident;
The glowing light ‘gainst all our woes
And henceforth triumph runs rampant.
Lady, See how His bounty doth appear?
Crowning this moment in love we bask,
For the sweetest melody we aught to hear;
‘How hast all of this come to be?’, ye ask;
By simple faith, I grant, that of a child
Winter is past and now the days grow mild

Alexandre Gazola (June 12th, 2015).

Poem: Be Thou Removed

“When mountain walls confront thy way,
Why sit and weep? Arise and say,
“Be thou removed!” and they shall be,
By power of God, cast in the sea.

All power on earth, all power in heaven
To Christ, the Son of God, is given;
And from the throne He will endue,
And hindrances shall flee from you.

O’er all the power of fiend or man,
Say to the Lord, “I surely can!”
Take from Him power on earth to tread
On serpent’s sting, on dragon’s head.

Whate’er thou art, O mountain high,
Where’er thou art, in earth or sky,
Whene’er thou art, truth is the same:
“Be thou removed, in Jesus’ name!”

“Be thou removed!” Faith bids thee start
For yonder sea—Arise! Depart!
I may, I can, I must, I will
The purpose of my God fulfill.”

Joseph Ellison (1866-1955)

True identity – Part 3

To top it off, here goes the final part of our series True identity. Let’s grab a hold of these truths and live by them!

Father, I can do what You say I can do: I am a victorious over-comer (1 John 5 v 4; Revelations 2 v 11), a mighty man of valor, a champion overcoming warrior, who possesses dignity and honor. (Judges 6v12). I am more than a conqueror. (Romans 8 v 35). All circumstances are under my feet. (Psalm 8 v 6). In all things I gain a surpassing victory (Rom 8 v 37) and in all things God leads me to triumph in Christ. (2 Corinthians 2 v 14). Through my union with God, I am strong in the Lord and the power of His might. (Ephesians 6 v 10). I have strength for all things in Christ who empowers me. I am ready for anything and equal to anything through Him Who infuses inner strength into me; I am self-sufficient in Christ’s sufficiency. (Philippians4 v13). Everything I put my hand to prospers. (Psalm 1 v 1 – 3). I am the head and not the tail, above only and not beneath. (Deutoronomy 28 v 13). Greater is He that lives in me than he that is in the world. (1 John 4 v 4). Because I believe in, lean on, trust and rely on God, I do the things that Jesus did, and greater things will I do, for His Spirit within me knows no limit. (John 14 v 12 – 14). Therefore I believe that all things are possible and limit not the Holy One within me. (Philippians 4 v 13). I received power when the Holy Spirit came upon me, so every place I go and all I do, I do in the power of the Spirit: I have power to lay hands on the sick and see them recover (each and every one), and at my command, in the Name of Jesus all demonic powers are cast out and all people are set free; I have authority over all the power of the enemy and nothing shall by any means hurt me. (Mark 16 v 17 – 18). All my sins are forgiven and all my diseases healed (Psalm 103:3).

As Jesus is, so am I in this world (1 John 4 v 17) and the immeasurable, unlimited and surpassing power of God is on the inside of me! (Ephesians 1 v 19). The same power that raised Jesus from the dead lives in me! (Ephesians 1 v 20)

Amen! Thank you, Jesus!

True identity – Part 2

Ready to continue learning more about your true identity in Christ? More amazing news on the way! Mull over all these truths and allow them to sink in till they become part of you.

I am the apple of God’s eye and my name is inscribed on the palm of His hand. (Zechariah 2 v 8; Psalm 17 v 8; Isaiah 49 v 16). I am stamped with the seal of the Holy Spirit. (Ephesians 1 v 13). I am established to the end. (1 Corinthians 1 v 8). I am being changed into His image and He Who began this good work in me will bring it to completion. (2 Corinthians 3 v 18; Philippians 1v 6) I am God’s workmanship, recreated in Christ for good works. (Ephesians 2 v 10). I am an ambassador for Christ. (2 Corinthians 5 v 20). I am complete in Him. (Colossains 2 v 10). I am the temple of the Holy Spirit. (1 Corinthians 6 v19). I have the mind of Christ. (1 Corinthians 2 v 16; Philipians 2 v 5). I am a joint heir with Christ and He has qualified me to share in His inheritance. (Romans 8 v 17; Colossians1 v 12; Ephesians 1 v 11). I am redeemed from the curse of the law and Abraham’s blessings are mine. (Galations 3 v13). I am redeemed from the futile way of life inherited from the tradition of my forefathers and am purchased with the precious blood of Christ. (1 Peter 1 v 18-19). I have been delivered from the control and dominion of the devil and have been translated into God’s kingdom of love. (Colossians 1 v 13). I am set free. (John 8 v 36; Galations 5 v 1; John 8 v 31 – 34). I am dead to sin and alive with Christ. (Romans 6 v 11; Ephesians 2 v 5). I am raised up with Christ and am seated with Him in heavenly places. (Ephesians 2 v 6). Because I am born of God the evil one cannot touch me. (1 John 5 v 18). I have been given all things that pertain to life and godliness and I am a partaker of His divine nature. (2 Peter 1 v 3-4). I am blessed with every spiritual blessing that heaven has to offer. (Ephesians 1 v 3). I am firmly rooted, built up and established in my faith (Colossians 2 v 7) and I have faith that can move mountains! (Mathew 17 v 20).

Amen! Thank you, Lord.

True identity – Part 1

We live in a tough world and, as a result, it’s easy to get caught up in ourselves, our daily routines and the pressures of life. Many times we are faced with discouragement and a feeling of inadequacy. Yet every person that has received Jesus Christ has the right to walk in newness of life and experience the wonderful blessings of a generous Father. But that is only possible as we act in a faith grounded upon a full knolewledge of our identity in Christ as revealed in the Bible.

So , starting in this post, I’m beginning a series transcribing a powerful declaration taken from the book Healing begins with sanctification of the heart,  written by Dr. M.K. Strydom. The declaration is totally based on what the Scripture says. Read it, print it and put it in a place where you can see it and read it every day. Meditate upon it. As you do that, peace and faith will be established in your heart and you’ll be able to renew your mind and respond to the challenges of life rooted in your true identity as a child of God.

So here it goes:

I am a precious man of great value and worth because Jesus, the King of kings, died and paid a great price for me. I am a royal son for I have a crown of glory and honor on my head, and I am wearing Jesus’ royal robes of righteousness. (Isaiah 61 v10; Psalm 8 v5). God accepts and approves of me. (Jeremiah 1 v 5). I am fearfully and wonderfully made. (Psalm 139). There is now no condemnation for me in Christ. (Romans 8 v1). Therefore I accept myself, and love who I am and the way I am made.

Father, I am who You say I am: I am called by God. (2 Timothy 1 v 9). I was chosen by God before the foundations of the world to be set apart for Him. (Ephesians 1 v 4; 1 Peter 2 v 9; 1 Thessalonians 1 v 4; John 15 v 16). I am God’s child. (Romans 8 v 15 -16). I am born again of the Incorruptible seed of the living Word of God that endures forever. (1 Peter 1 v 23). I am forgiven of all my sins and the blood of Jesus has washed away my guilt and shame. (Ephesians 1 v 4 & 7; 1 John 2 v 12; 1 John 1 v9; Colossians 1 v 14). I am a new creation in Christ. (2 Corinthians 5 v 17). I am holy and blameless in God’s sight, even above reproach, before Him in love. (Ephesians 1 v 4). I am the righteousness of God, which means that I am approved, acceptable and in right relationship with Him.(2Corinthians 5:21). I have full access to the Father. (Ephesians 2 v 18) and can fearlessly, confidently and boldly draw near to His throne. (Hebrews 4 v 16). I am blessed and I am God’s favorite. (Galations 3 v 9).


Poem: Father of Jesus Christ, My Lord

Today I’m quoting a few beautiful verses about faith written by Charles Wesley. I came to know about this poem while reading an excerpt of the book “Faith, the link with God’s power“.  The entire poem can be read here.

The thing surpasses all my thought,
But faithful is my Lord;
Through unbelief I stagger not,
For God hath spoke the word.

Faith, mighty faith, the promise sees,
And looks to that alone;
Laughs at impossibilities,
And cries, ‘It shall be done!’

– Charles Wesley (1707-1788)
