I look around and all I see are burning buildings, barren trees. Hopelessness is starting to wreak havoc! Jesus, I know you see the deepest depth unknown to me. You have planted seeds among the ashes; You rebuild, You restore all that's broken. From the ruins, You redeem, You return all that's stolen from your children. So be still my anxious heart; all that's gone is never lost. Emmanuel is here and He is faithful!
John 5:19 - “Then answered Jesus and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father do: for what things soever he doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise.” Acts 3:20-21 – “And he shall send Jesus Christ, which before was preached unto you: 21 Whom the heaven must receive until the times of restitution of all things, which God hath spoken by the mouth of all his holy prophets since the world began.” Titus 2:13-14 – “Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ; 14 Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.” Revelation 5:12 - “... Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing.” Revelation 19:6 - “And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thunderings, saying, Alleluia: for the Lord God omnipotent reigneth.”
Lord, I won't let my praises stop. I'll sing it from these rubbled rocks. I know You are good and You are able. You make beauty from the ashes, You turn our sorrows into gladness. You rebuild, You restore all that's broken from the ruins. I’ll give You the glory and honor for all that You do, Lord God Almighty. Hallelujah! Today’s Song – Watch/Listen: “Ruins" - Artist: Mandisa
