One of the most powerful messages by Bishop TD Jakes-
“Don’t Give Up, Something is about to Happen!”
“God’s method of bringing you out may not be the method that you would have chosen”
“Now as Jesus passed by, He saw a man who was blind from birth. And His disciples asked Him, saying, “Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?”
Jesus answered, “Neither this man nor his parents sinned, but that the works of God should be revealed in him. I must work the works of Him who sent Me while it is day; the night is coming when no one can work. As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.”
When He had said these things, He spat on the ground and made clay with the saliva; and He anointed the eyes of the blind man with the clay. And He said to him, “Go, wash in the pool of Siloam” (which is translated, Sent). So he went and washed, and came back seeing.” (John 9:1-7)
I never meant to woo a king with simple shepherd songs Or hide away inside a cave, safe from danger’s arms I never meant to wear a crown, or try to bring armies down It never was about me and who I hoped to be
At the end of the day, I wanna hear people say My heart looks like Your heart, my heart looks like Your heart When the world looks at me, let them agree That my heart looks like Your heart, my heart looks like Your heart
You’re standing at a mountain That you know you cannot climb Your enemy’s approaching You hear him coming from behind There is trouble all around you There’s no place to run away But there’s a voice That’s deep inside you Saying it’s time to stand in faith
I dare to believe That miracles happen, That mountains still move, And demons must flee For the God that we serve He is much more than able So don’t be afraid Stand up and say, I dare to believe
There’s a miracle inside you It’s just a mustard seed of faith But by the mighty hand of God now You know that tiny seed was placed And though this world May try to crush you It can never keep you down Soon the life of God inside you Will come breaking through the ground
No matter what the doubters tell you No matter what the devil says No matter what anybody, Anybody else does You just keep trusting Jesus You’ll see and won’t be long God is right and the doubters are wrong Just say,
No don’t be afraid Just stand up and say, I dare to believe No don’t be afraid Just stand up and say, I dare to believe…
“For My thoughts are not your thoughts,
Nor are your ways My ways,” says the Lord.
For as the heavens are higher than the earth,
So are My ways higher than your ways,
And My thoughts than your thoughts.
– Isaiah 55:8,9 –
I happened to stumble upon this song & love it.
This song beautifully depicts the love of Jesus & how He sees us while we may hang on to the negatives, shame & failures.
“I see your story, I see My name Written on every beautiful page You see the struggle, you see the shame I see the reason I came. I came for your story I came for your wounds To show you what Love sees when I see you”
