JESUS is our Spoken Word ...

Jesus adores us!  I have been so blessed by +Kari Jobe's  music and I have seen how God is just elevating her to new levels all the time so His Glory can be shown.  She is such a beautiful vessel just teaching us all about the grace and love of God. Her music video Forever is just - no I don't even have words.  If you have never seen it, it is a MUST. Isaac Wimberley gives us a beautiful word on Jesus the Spoken Word.. It is so beyond amazing.  Please watch the video and enjoy the words as well as you make it part of your soul and pray it back to God... enjoy!  Thank you Kari Jobe and Isaac Wimberley for being obedient to the word of God and for lifting His name high unto the Heavens.  May God bless the work that you both do for His Kingdom. 
Spoken Word by +Isaac Wimberley   

If there are words for Him then I don’t have them. 
You see, my brain has not yet reached the point where it could 
form a thought that could adequately describe the greatness of my God, 
and my lungs have not yet developed the ability to release a breath
with enough agility to breathe out the greatness of his love,

and my voice, you see,
my voice, is so inhibited, restrained by human limits
that it’s hard to even sing the praise of…
You see… if there are words for Him then I don’t have them.

My God,
His grace is remarkable, mercies are enumerable,
strength is impenetrable, He is honourable, accountable, favourable,
He is unsearchable yet knowable, indefinable yet approachable, indescribable yet personal,
He is beyond comprehension, further than imagination, constant through generations, king of every nation.

But if there are words for Him then I don’t have them.
You see, my words are few, and to try to capture the one true God,
using my vocabulary will never do,
but I use words as an expression,
an expression of worship to a saviour,
a saviour who is both worthy and deserving of my praise, so I use words.

My heart extols the Lord, blesses his name forever,
He has won my heart captured my mind and has bound them both together,
He has defeated me in my rebellion,
conquered me in my sin,
He has welcomed me into his presence,
completely invited me in.
He has made himself the object of my sight,
flooding me with mercies in the morning,
drowning me with grace in the night.

But if there are words for Him
then I don’t have them.
But what I do have is good news,
for my God knew that manmade words would never do,
for words are just tools that we use to point to the truth,
so He sent His son Jesus Christ as “The Word”, living proof,

He is the image of the invisible God, the first born of all creation,
for by Him all things are created, giving nothingness formation,
and by His words He sustains, in the power of His name,
for He is before all things and over all things he reigns, holy is his name,
so praise him for his life…

The way he persevered in strife,
the humble son of God becoming the perfect sacrifice,
praise him for his death…

that He willingly stood in our place, that he lovingly endured the grave,
that he battled our enemy and on the third day rose in victory

He is everything that was promised,
praise Him as your risen king,
lift your voice and sing for one day he will return for us
and we will finally be united with our saviour for eternity, eternity.

So it’s not just words that I proclaim,
for my words point to “The Word” and “The Word” has a name,
hope has a name,
joy has a name,
peace has a name,
love has a name
and that name is Jesus Christ.

Praise his name forever!

Jesus Your GRACE is our true foundation


Grace made us His precious stones

Just the way Jesus was rejected as the living stone by people, just so, because we are in Him and part of Him we will also be rejected by man.  People look at us, at our lives and see how they can find fault, see when we going to fail, see when we sin they can make sure to tell us Jesus will deny us as His children,  BUT the good news is that we don't ever have to be anxious because Jesus' grace is the glue that holds us to Him, as Romans 8:38 promises us that NOTHING can separate us from His love, neither death nor life, neither angels or demons, neither the present or the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation.

Jesus is the King, the Crown, our foundation and we are His precious stones, we need to shine our lives in Him, we need to make Him our strong foundation.  Our feet must be on Jesus. Nothing can move us!  And the beauty of it all is - Jesus sees the end product of us His precious stones, and yes He loves us all beyond infinity!
Jesus thank You that no matter what, Your Grace made us Your precious stones. Thank You that You will never leave us or forsake us, even if we go through fire, we will be like precious stones that are shaped and moulded more deliberate so Your purpose for us can be fulfilled in our lives to give You all the glory. Amen.

When you know and understand His unconditional love for you


Conditional love means that we have to "earn" love, in other words we have to work for it or we have to do something in return of receiving love. How awesome that with Jesus there are no conditions - love is given to us freely by Him - NO MATTER WHAT!  No limits, no conditions. 

Agape love .... Paul said in Eph 3:18 that to just grasp how wide and long and deep the LOVE of Christ is and to know it surpasses all knowledge and in 1 Cor 13:5 it says that love takes no account of the evil done to it.  So Jesus for sure is not counting our sin against us. There are no but's this time, so we have to know that we consciously KNOW that He loves us NO MATTER WHAT!  Don't let anyone ever tell you that because of your sin Jesus will not love you.  Jesus loves us all not because of who we are BUT because of who HE is.

Know and understand His grace - Christ's love for us is ungraspable!

Radical Grace .. Less of me Jesus and more of You

Extreme LOVE - Radical GRACE

Jesus tells us in Matthew 10:38 to love Him more than we love our lives, more than we love life itself. When I think in reverse, I think how Jesus loved me more than He loved His own life as He gave His up so I could have eternal life.  RADICAL GRACE!  

Now in return I want to ensure I take away from myself and add it all to Him - give Him the glory, rely on Him, lift Him up & give Him all authority over my life.  

Jesus, I thank You for Your radical grace.  Thank You that You thought us special enough to give up Your life so that we could be with You eternally in heaven.

Oh how extreme is Your love for us- radical grace!

Well-favoured .... gracious kindness


Consume His gracious kindness

Yes it is awesome to be children of God Almighty, our Magnificent God and because we are His children we have His undeserved favour.  We must trust God implicitly no matter what happens in our lives and declare His favour in our lives by FAITH.  

When we feel defeated and insecure in our workplaces, our relationships or any part of our lives we need to declare His FAVOUR by speaking and believing His WORD and His PROMISES!  2 Peter 1:2 says that grace, which is the undeserved favour of God and peace can be multilpied to us.  

We are ALL well-favoured by God.  We can now walk in His blessings in every single area of our lives.  Make a decision today and consume His gracious kindness.

Gratified Grace

Oh Lord Jesus, how the Grace that You so lovingly give us, gratifies me.

Just think about all the small little things we so often take for granted.  This weekend (Friday late afternoon), 10 immediate areas in our City's water reservoirs dried up and so we have been without water. Then we had a tremendously big hailstorm that has done so much damage. A few minutes after that the electricity went out until Sunday. 
It has been quite a stressful weekend but also a weekend where I could reflect on the little I so often take for granted.  Father God, thank You for all You give us so graciously that we so often take for granted.  May I be gratified in Your Grace.

Let us wear our invisible crowns!

Imagine for a second Jesus saying to you :"Last week you did this wrong so I can't listen to you say sorry again or last month you hurt this person's heart, so I can't help you". Thank goodness Jesus is nothing like us. His GRACE is perfect, His forgiveness is perfect. Jesus said our sins have been cast as far as the east is from the west, and yes, we MUST believe!  Jesus loves us unconditionally and He said on the cross: "It is finished".  So let us not dwell on our past and let us look forward to live life in His Grace and His forgiveness. Let us wear our invisible crowns! 
Father God, thank You that we can look forward to a life with You where we know for sure we have been forgiven and Your blood covered all our past and future sins. We love You and we say thank You for all that You so graciously do for us your children.  You are our only hope for strength!

Jesus our hiding place

Jesus You are my hiding place

When it seems at times that the world has turn its back on you and all your friends are no longer there, when life just seems perplexed and your feelings unexplained - remember that Jesus is your hiding place. Jesus is unchanging, He will love you the same yesterday and forever; His love is constant, He is faithful and loyal.
Jesus who is like You in all the earth, nothing can satisfy us like You satisfy.  Jesus You are the waterfall that never stops flowing. Your water is the living water. When we drink from Your living water we will never thirst again!
Jesus thank You that You never change, that You have always been the same and no matter how we fail You, You love us the same. Thank You that we can come to You when life seems perplexed!  Thank You that Your cup never runs dry.

His Unspeakable gift of Grace

His love for us is immeasurable, extraordinary and amazing!

Daily, God reassures us of His great love for us. We all need His love. We all need to know that His GRACE for us is certain and preordained. No matter your sins, God loves you and He cares for you and He wants you to "NEED" Him too.
He hears you when you call Him out of your depths. He has given us an unspeakable gift called GRACE!
Father God, please trigger YOUR unspeakable gift of GRACE in people's hearts, let them feel they are good enough to be part of Your Kingdom. Amen!
