Lift Up Your Eyes ~ Fall On Your Knees


http://floraart.deviantart.com/


Truly He taught us to love one another;
His law is love and His Gospel is peace.
Chains shall He break for the slave is our brother
And in His Name all oppression shall cease.
Sweet hymns of joy in grateful chorus raise we,
Let all within us praise His holy Name!

What freedom is found in the moment that we realize His law IS love and is meant to be spoken in love.  That His Gospel IS peace and therefore brings peace to all who receive it.  That when no one else can rescue and nothing else can save, God can break the chains and wipe out the oppression that consumes humanity.  If only we could empty ourselves completely, to allow Him to fill us entirely so that ALL within us would praise His holy name! To be in such awe and to be so overwhelmed with the amount of mercy we have been freely given...the only thing left to do is to fall on our knees!

"God's spirit is on Me; He's chosen me to preach the Message of good news to the poor, sent Me to announce pardon to prisoners and recovery of sight to the blind, to set the burdened and battered free, to announce, "This is God's year to act!" Luke 4:18-19
