I want to . . . live like I believe

“I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength.”   (Philippians 4:13)

I want to pray down Jericho’s wall, stand on faith and watch it fall.

I want to pray down the walls hiding every human heart, watch those barriers crumble, bestowing a new start.

I want to walk on water and soar on eagles’ wings, I want to move mighty mountains and do other impossible things.

I want to handle serpents and face the lions in their den, I want to walk through fire, I hope it’s me He’ll send.

I want to see hearts of flesh replacing every heart of stone, I want to sing Your praises, Lord, with those around Your throne.

I want to see Your miracles, I want to know Your mighty power,  You alone are my Rock, my shield, my shelter, my strong tower.

I want to know Jesus’ resurrection power, Your word says lives in me;  I want to have the faith I need to set that power free.

Help me, dear Lord, to hold onto my mustard seed; for just as You have promised, that is all I’ll ever need.

“Jesus looked at them and said, ‘With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.'”  (Matthew 19:26)

“Immediately the boy’s father exclaimed, ‘I believe, help my unbelief!'” (Mark 9:24)

“He (Jesus) replied, ‘Because you have so little faith.  I tell you the truth, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, Move from here to there, and it will move.  Nothing will be impossible for you.'” (Matt. 17:20)

“And if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit, who lives in you.”  (Romans 8:11)

“I pray also that . . . you may know the hope to which He has called you, . . . and His incomparably great power for us who believe.  That power is like the working of His mighty strength, which He exerted in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly realms,” (Eph. 1:18-20)

“I want to know Christ and the power of His resurrection and the fellowship of sharing in His sufferings, becoming like Him in His death, and so, somehow, to attain to the resurrection from the dead.”  (Philippians 3:10-1

sincerely,           Grace Day
