Standing in the Peace of Praise!

The trip to the Holy Land is grueling.

Eleven days of hard pushing.

No vacation for the seeking pilgrim.

My friend found her way to “stand”

through the opposition of

hard pressed.


 

 – Crawling out of bed,

falling to her knees.

Carpet fibers mixed

with muddled words

of pain and prayer.

“Lord, how do I

make it though

this day?”

“How do I stand?”

 From the depths of where

Peace resides,

She rises.

Not in her

Own power or will.

She “stands” in His. –

Life activity – caught up in praise – within the heart!

“Stand” – natsab (naw-tsab’)

Verb: to station, settle, sharpen, to take a stand.


 

The power is not in the activity of standing.

It’s in the Peace of praise

Stationed within the heart.


 

“I’m thanking You, God,

From a full heart,

I’m writing the book

On Your wonders.

I’m whistling,

Laughing,

And jumping

For joy;

I’m singing

Your song,

Holy God.”

Psalm 9:1 (The Message)

On top of Mount Carmel.

The place the Prophet Elijah,

“Seized the prophets of Baal;

let not one of them escape.”

1 Kings 18:40 (ESV)

Israel, February 2014


May you be encouraged to

“Stand” – natsab (naw-tsab’)

Bringing down the strongholds in

life through the power of

Life activity of Praise from within

Your heart!

blessings, denise
