Mightier

There are days

Days the waves

Keep coming

Every time in confidence

I step

Out on waters there

So deep.

 

I hear Your voice

So clearly

So lovingly

Beckon to me come

And confident

In my strength to stand

I do.

 

I speak of You

Your righteousness

With my mouth declare

Of weakness purposed

Power to unleash.

 

But then

The waves they hit

Crashing, pounding

“What have you done?”

Where in fearless courage

I was clothed

I am now

Undone.

 

Fear of man

My body chains

Vigilant and ready

I become

For my accuser’s waves

To pound afresh

My very obedience

To hear

As sin declared.

 

“Who do you think you are?

Apologize

And your storm will cease.”

I hear him cry

As the waves

Rush and roar

Mount and crash

Inside of me.

 

But then I see

Your hand

Outstretched

My weakness longs

Your hem

To touch.

 

It’s then I hear

Your Word

Arise in me

I see the veil

You’re lifting

The weight of glory

In my weakness

You’re revealing.

 

I hear my idols

Smash

And see

You’ve led me to

The Cross

To die to strength

And rise anew

In my weakness known

Now covered

Safe

In You.

 

Yes, there are days

Days the waves

Keep coming

Every time in confidence

I step out on

Those waters deep.

 

But I

Your Son

Do know Your gentle voice

Through rising, crashing

Mounting waves

I now reach and clasp

Your loving

Outstretched hand.

 

In You

I rise above

To see

I’m seated

In heavenly places

Far above.

 

Joy, hope and peace

I find

Even as the waves return

To mount and crash

My flesh to pound.

 

Yes, mightier than the violent

Raging of the seas

Mightier than

The breakers on the shore

The Lord above

And in my heart

Is mightier than these.

Psalm 138:6-8 (NIV)

Though the Lord is exalted, he looks kindly on the lowly;
though lofty, he sees them from afar.
Though I walk in the midst of trouble,
you preserve my life.
You stretch out your hand against the anger of my foes;
with your right hand you save me.
The Lord will vindicate me;
your love, Lord, endures forever—
do not abandon the works of your hands.

 

2 Corinthians 5: 1-5 (ESV)

For we know that if the earthly tent we live in is destroyed, we have a building from God, an eternal house in heaven, not built by human hands. Meanwhile we groan, longing to be clothed instead with our heavenly dwelling, because when we are clothed, we will not be found naked. For while we are in this tent, we groan and are burdened, because we do not wish to be unclothed but to be clothed instead with our heavenly dwelling, so that what is mortal may be swallowed up by life. Now the one who has fashioned us for this very purpose is God, who has given us the Spirit as a deposit, guaranteeing what is to come.

 

1 Peter 2:5 (ESV)

you yourselves like living stones are being built up as a spiritual house, to be a holy priesthood, to offer spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.

 

Psalm 71: 15 -16 ESV

15 My mouth will tell of your righteous acts,
of your deeds of salvation all the day,
for their number is past my knowledge.
16 With the mighty deeds of the Lord God I will come;
I will remind them of your righteousness, yours alone.

 

Psalm 93:4 (ESV)

Mightier than the thunders of many waters,
mightier than the waves of the sea,
the Lord on high is mighty!

 

Ephesians 2:5-7 (ESV)

even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ—by grace you have been saved— and raised us up with him and seated us with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, so that in the coming ages he might show the immeasurable riches of his grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus.

 

1 John 4:18 (NLT)

Such love has no fear, because perfect love expels all fear. If we are afraid, it is for fear of punishment, and this shows that we have not fully experienced his perfect love.

 

2 Corinthians 4:7 (ESV)

But we have this treasure in jars of clay, to show that the surpassing power belongs to God and not to us.
