WHO CAN STAND AGAINST THE LORD, MY PROTECTOR, MY SHIELD, AND MY GUIDE?
Just when it seems like so many are standing against me, the Lord reveals Himself through those who rise up by the breath of the Holy Spirit to stand together by my side —
And it isn’t the polished religious or the slithering snake that stands with me —
But the wild eyed radical, the bold and fearless friend, the humble and meek servant with great power under control, the outcast redeemed and called to powerful action.
I stand with the Lord. I do not lie in this. Test me and you will see — not because I am strong or proud or willful in and of myself — but because I have known my need and I have cried out to the Lord, and He has heard me! I do not seek to slay you, but if I must cut you in order to pass by, let me heal you as well, and like a surgeon remove the cancer that lies beneath, festering, strangling life away from you.
Do you think of ways to oppose me, you shadows that pass through and corrupt members minds trying to work against me, trying to bring me harm — do you not know yet that My Father wil turn it to god because He loves me, because He knows my name, because He has called me out to see your wicked ways, your worthless sacrifices and traditions, your dead religious practices, your complacency and your hypocrisy crushed beneath His feet?
Repent while the is still time.
Come join me at the altar together.
