Our women's bible study started up again on Monday at WCC. I was so excited to see all the girls again! We had such an awesome time studying James together previously so I was really looking forward to our new series called "Anointed, Transformed, Reedeemed". This time we'll be studying the life of David, through teaching videos featuring Beth Moore (my all-time favorite), Kay Arthur and Priscilla Shirer. I've read a few of Beth and Kay's books but had never even heard of Priscilla Shirer. Let's just say she is incredible. I had to post this quote from her talk that we watched Monday night because it is amazing!
Girls, remember whose we are and who we are! David had to wait 22 years before his anointing came into fruition and he reigned as king of Israel. 22 years! God has put an anointing on each of our lives, and we can rest assured that we are His even as we wait. How comforting to know who we are in Christ!
To watch Priscilla quote this in action, check out the YouTube video below.
The First and the Last
The Beginning and the end
The keeper of creation
The creator of all
He’s the architect of the universe
And the manager of all time
He always was, always is and always will be.
Unmoved, unchanged, undefeated and never undone
He was bruised but brought healing,
He was pierced but eased pain,
He was persecuted but brought freedom
He was dead and brings life
He is risen to bring power
And he reigns to bring peace
The world can’t understand Him
Armies can’t defeat Him
Schools can’t explain Him
And leaders they can’t ignore Him
Harold couldn’t kill Him
Nero couldn’t crush Him
The new age can not replace Him
And Oprah can not explain Him away
He IS Life,
HE IS Love,
HE IS Longevity and He IS The LORD
HE IS Goodness, kindness, faithfulness
And HE IS GOD
HE IS holy and righteous
and powerful and pure
His ways are right,
His word eternal
His will unchanging
And His mind is on us!
He is our savior, our guide,
Our peace, our joy, our comfort
Our Lord and He rules our lives
I serve Him because His bond is love
His yoke is easy His burden is light
And His goal for us is abundant life.
I follow Him because
He Is the wisdom of the wise
The power of the powerful
The ancient of days, the ruler of rulers,
The leader of all leaders,
His goal is a relationship with me
He will never leave you, never forsake you
Never mislead you, never forget you,
Never overlook you and
Never cancel your appointment is His appointment book.
When you fall He’ll lift you up,
When you fail He will forgive you.
When your weak He’s strong,
When your lost He’s your way
When your afraid He is your courage,
When you stumble He will steady you,
When your hurt He Is going to heal you,
When your broken He will mend you,
When your blind He will lead you,
When your hungry He will feed you,
When you face trials He Is with you,
When I face persecution He shields me,
When I face problems He will comfort me,
When I face loss He will provide for me,
And when we face death
He will carry us all home to meet Him.
He is everything for everybody,
everywhere ,every time,
And in every way.
He is your God
and that sister is who you belong to.
