Day 5: I AM Awaking

16 December 2015 in Arrowtown, New Zealand. Waking early to drink in God’s Living Word to me.

Thus says the Lord GOD to these bones: Behold, I will cause breath to enter you, and you shall live.

Ezekiel 37:5 ESV

Today, I bless us to take eat of the peace offering in the Presence of our God. I bless us to detach from and lay down our old life that has already died at the Cross to take eat of our new life in Christ Jesus. I bless us to sacrifice our fleshly way of seeing and thinking, our worldly truths and our life of slavery to sin and death on the altar to draw near and take eat of the Word of Life, our peace offering Himself: Jesus – our Way, Truth and Life. I bless us to please our God. I bless us to wake early in hunger and thirst to take eat of the Word of life and bear the fruit for which He was sent to us.

I bless us to come to God, believing not only that He exists but that He rewards those who earnestly seek Him. I bless us who have sown with tears to reap with songs of joy. I bless us who have taken up our Cross to follow our Jesus, who have laid down our life for others in obedience to the Holy Spirit’s promptings, to see by faith and believe that what the enemy meant for evil, God meant for good: for the saving of many.

I bless us to not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving to let our requests be made known to God, so that the peace of God that transcends our understanding may guard our hearts in Christ Jesus. I bless us to be filled by the God of hope with all joy and peace, as we trust in him, so that we may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. I bless us to see dry bones come alive in the breath of the Almighty.

There's not a day
Goes by
I don't remember
How far
You've come.

There's not a day
Goes by
I don't see
The labor pain
You've borne.

Always and ever
From the throne room
My heart's pouring out
Living waters rushing
For you to know Me more.

Ever more in My death
And resurrection
Sweet mercy
Taste now in heaven's
Dew ever glowing.

My manna's
From the sky here falling
Know there's not a day
Goes by
You're all alone.

As you Sabbath
Rest your heart
Lift my Word afresh
In your bosom hid
My honey, take eat.

My Body broken
My blood shed
Come and feast
At My table in the
New wine ever flowing.

In the tears
And groaning
See a new heart awaking
The love of the Father
No longer hidden, broken free.

In your hands I've emptied
See harmony's song
In Christ's leading thought rising
Behold: truth's kissing grace
Dove's eyes, pure blue revealing.

In Heaven's cloud opening
Tears in joy I'm reaping
Each day anew
Run your race into kairos
In Your Way
In the wilderness

See Eden in your desert
Blooming
In rainclouds
All things new unfurling
See in your body

My Body

That was broken
For the joy
Set before us now:

The dry bones
I AM

Awaking!
