Your Name

"Your Name,
is a strong and mighty tower,
Your Name,
is a shelter like no other,
Your Name,
let the nations sing it louder,
cuz nothing has the power to save,
like Your Name."
Psalm 5:11
But let all who take refuge in You be glad,
Let them ever sing for joy;
And may You shelter them,
That those who love Your name may exault You.
Psalm 9:10
And those who know Your name will put their trust in You,
For You, O Lord, have not forsaken those who seek You.
Psalm 18:1-2
"I love You, O Lord, my strength."
The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer,
My God, my rock, in whom I take refuge;
My shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.
Psalm 37:23,24
The steps of a man are established by the Lord,
And He delights in his way.
When he falls, he will not be hurled headlong,
Because the Lord is the One who holds his hand.
Psalm 49:15
But God will redeem my soul from the power of Sheol,
For He will receice me.
Psalm 80:3
O God, restore us!
And cause Your face to shine upon us, and we will be saved.
Psalm 83:18
That they may know that You alone, whose name is the Lord,
Are Most High over all the earth.
Psalm 92: 15
To declare that the Lord is upright;
He is my rock, and there is no unrighteousness in Him.
Psalm 100:3
Know that the Lord Himself is God;
It is He who has made us, and not we ourselves;
We are His people and the sheep of His pasture.
Psalm 119:175a
Let my soul live that it may praise You,
Psalm 130:4
But there is forgiveness with You,
That You may be feared.
Psalm 145:14
The Lord sustains all who fall.
And raises up all who are bowed down.
Psalm 103:12
As far as the east is from the west,
So far has He removed our transgressions from us
Too often lately, I have been forgetting these truths. But I am rejoicing tonight in the fact that God is working, He is filling my heart and soul with His truth. Pointing out sin and setting me free.
It's not always easy..... in fact, sometimes, it is really really hard. I fall back into the sin I long to be free of. But God is gracious and I am filled with awe that He has chosen NOW to work, to move in my life, to fill me with Him.
He is reminding me in this season, what Easter is. The Hope that we all have in the cross, in His Son who died and was raised up, defeating death and the power of satan.
Psalm 139 is my favourite this week. It is speaking to me and it is my prayer.
I am praying that God will work in your lives this Easter season. Drawing you closer to Him, reminding you of, or revealing His Truth in your life. Sometimes it is easy to hear the Easter story and not let it impact our lives.
But it should impact us:
Jesus died for you. He willingly suffered death on a cross;
So that YOU might have life. That YOU might be free.
That YOU might be forgiven for EVERY sin in your life.
Isn't that AWESOME and praiseworthy and life-changing?

Wonderful reminders. I have really been trying to prepare my heart for Easter this year as well. To really reflect on the awesome truth of what Jesus did for us! We are so undeserving and blessed beyond measure!
