Words – – Strong Words

From the breaking of the dawn
To the setting of the sun,
I will stand on every promise of Your word.
Words of power, strong to save,
That will never pass away,
I will stand on every promise of Your word.
For Your covenant is sure,
And on this I am secure,
I can stand on every promise of Your word.

When I stumble and I sin,
Condemnation pressing in,
I will stand on every promise of Your word.
You are faithful to forgive,
That in freedom I might live,
So I stand on every promise of Your word.
Guilt to innocence restored:
You remember sins no more!
So I’ll stand on every promise of Your word.

When I’m faced with anguished choice,
I will listen for Your voice,
And I’ll stand on every promise of Your word.
Through this dark and troubled land
You will guide me with your hand
As I stand on every promise of Your word.
And you’ve promised to complete
Every work begun in me,
So I’ll stand on every promise of Your word.

Hope that lifts me from despair,
Love that casts out every fear,
As I stand on every promise of Your word.
Not forsaken, not alone,
For the Comforter has come,
And I stand on every promise of Your word.
Grace sufficient, grace for me,
Grace for all who will believe,
We will stand on every promise of Your word.

Is the action of returning something to a former owner, place, or condition, to fix, mend, refurbish.  We are broken pots. We need to be mended, made whole again, as when we were first born.  The ways of the world have tarnished us and marred us and scarred us.  This was not what God intended for us.  He always wanted us to be pristine, the way He first made us.  2 Corinthians 5:17, “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.”  This is why God sent Jesus to us.  This why Jesus died and shed His blood for us. That through His blood we are made whole.  Psalm 51:10“Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me”.  We become regenerated and born again, with a new clean heart.  If you’re not washed as pure as snow by Christ, you don’t stand a snowball’s chance at escaping hell.  No human means can wash out the stain of sin. None of our efforts, sacrifices, rituals, good deeds, or prayers are sufficient to remove the scarlet stain of sin on our hearts. Only a supernatural, almighty power can remove this blotch.  Ephesians 1:7, “In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace.”  Who is Him…Jesus, of course.  This is how we are restored back to our Father in heaven.  This is RESTORATION

 

Is becoming holy or sacred.  To become more like Jesus.  Acts 20:32  “set apart for particular use in a special purpose or work and to make holy or sacred.”  To sanctify someone or something is to set that person or thing apart for the use intended by its designer.  A human being is sanctified, therefore, when he or she lives according to God’s design and purpose.  Moreover, God calls human beings to be holy as holy as he is holy Peter 1:15-16, But just as he who called you is holy, so be holy in all you do; for it is written: “Be holy, because I am holy.”  Human beings ultimately cannot sanctify themselves.  The Father sanctifies by the Spirit and in the name of Christ.  1 Corinthians 6:11, “But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.”  Romans 12:1, 2 “I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.”  Galatians 2:20 “I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.”  This is SANCTIFICATION.
