“Do not fear, O land, rejoice and be glad, for the Lord has done great things.” (Joel 2:21. ESV)
“The Lord has done great things for us; we are glad.” (Psalm 126:3 ESV)
I heard this song for the first time last night. It’s called Look What You’ve Done by Tasha Layton:
“Standing in Your presence,
Lord I can feel You diggin’ all my roots up.
I feel Ya healin’ all my wounds up.
All I can say is, “Hallelujah”.
Look what You’ve done,
look what You’ve done in me.
You spoke Your truth
into the lies I let my heart believe.
Look at me now,
look how You made me new.
Oh, the enemy did everything that he could do.
Oh, but look what You’ve done.”
You know, the more of these I research and write, the better I get to know God. The better I hear God. That’s a big achievement for me. There was a time in the not to distant past, that I wasn’t sure if I was hearing God or not. But God did some much needed pruning and cut away the dead parts until He found me underneath. Then He nurtured me by planting me in a Spirit-filled church where I would get the training I needed. God healed my wounds and made me whole again. He put love back in my heart and a smile on my lips.
The enemy has tried so many times to take me down. But I am still standing and am stronger for it. It seems the more the devil tries to take me out, the stronger my will to fight.
There was time when I really didn’t care. I didn’t care if I lived or died. Oh, I guess I cared because I wasn’t ready to die. If you had asked me then if I knew for sure I was going to heaven I would say, “I hope so.” Today I say, “Yes! I will be there front and center, worshiping the King.”
But that is what God has done for me. He changed my I hope so into a resounding Yes I am! Can you say the same thing? If not, let me know. I won’t judge you but will pray with you. I want us all in heaven. So if you haven’t given your life to God, do so today. You won’t regret it.
