WLAK - Long Way Down feat. Christon Gray & Dre Murray
If you’ve ever watched the ocean, you know that its waves keep running into the shore. Sometimes they crash with unbelievable force, and other times they’re gentle. Either way, they can’t be stopped! Likewise, there’s nothing you can do to stop Almighty God from loving you.
Luke 6:39 » And He spoke a parable to them: “Can the blind lead the blind? Will they not both fall into the ditch?
Know who you are and walk in it.
-2 Corinthians 5:17
It’s not just about crying out for help, but seeking the help we’ve cried out for. It will come.
To which God says in Zechariah 2:5, “I will be to her a wall of fire all around, declares the Lord.” Yes. That’s it. That is the promise. The “I will” of God. That is what I need. And if it is true for the vulnerable villages of Jerusalem, it is true for me a child of God. God will be a “wall of fire all around me.” Yes. He will. He has been. And he will be.
This time he said: “I will be to her a wall of fire all around, and I will be the glory in her midst.”
Cry out to him. Then ransack the Bible for his appointed promise. We are fragile. But he is not.
Excerpt from the devotional, 15 Days in the Word with John Piper.
God made us to magnify his greatness, the way telescopes magnify stars. He created us to put his goodness and truth and beauty and wisdom and justice on display. The greatest display of God’s glory comes from deep delight in all that he is. This means that God gets the praise and we get the pleasure. God created us so that he is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in him.
That my mother was going to name me Victoria? She had a dream that my name was Vanessa before I was born, so that’s what she named me. My name means butterfly, in both English and Hebrew. God knew me before my mother conceived me. That’s pretty dope right?!
