This world is full of guessing What the truth is and is not The news around the world Seems often to be bought Two sides that can't agree On what course they should take Makes for a lot of wordplay That makes the truth seem fake There's one thing that I know Will always speak the truth That is the Holy Bible God's Word to me and you It tells me Jesus came to earth And gave His life away A sacrifice for all my sins So He could make a way No oversimplification Is in these words today If you will ask forgiveness You too will find the way His way is to eternal life With Peace and joy for you The fake news that appears down here Gives way to God's good news
There’s only two things you must know To be all you can be Thing one is His great mercy Thing two is grace that’s free Mercy reached out to touch our lives When Jesus came from above Took the form of a baby Because of His great love Mercy was with Him every day As He healed all that would come Taught the ways of the Kingdom Truly was God’s Son Mercy then took Him to the cross Where He bled and died for me Mercy rose Him up from the grave So I’d live eternally The greatest show of mercy The world has ever seen Is something I must know deep down Because it was done for me Grace has supplied my every need From the moment I was born From the fresh air that I breath each day To the sunrise every morn Grace followed us as we grew in years For it truly gave us life Each trial that we faced has passed And grace helped us survive Grace gave the greatest gift of all When we asked the Savior in By grace are you saved through faith my friend It is grace that makes you win This grace that’s so amazing Grace always blesses me He gives it freely to us Supplying ever need When you are looking out ahead At what your life may bring Make sure that grace and mercy Are the most important thing
I have a big brother who calls me by name Whenever I need Him He comes with a plan No weapon against me will ever stand My brother will save me by His mighty hand I have a big brother and He has my back When resources dwindle I have no lack Because of His mercy the world gives me slack And I have relief when the lender attacks I have a big brother no doctor is He But when sickness does come all symptoms will flee When Pain tries to curse me His blood I will plead Because by His blood I am healed and set free I have a big brother with Him I’ll abide When trouble comes near me in His arms I’ll hide A refuge and fortress in He always provides I know I am safe when he stands by my side I have a big brother Jesus is His name Once I cam to know Him I’ve not been the same Each day I will rise up and give Him my praise For He is on my side all of my days
I wandered aimlessly about Not knowing I was wrong Thinking all the while That God would go along He didn't mind my sin He really understood After all most of my life I really had been good Then i heard that Jesus Was God's only true Son I learned He died for me So my sins would be gone He took all my transgression He nailed it to that cross 'Twas then I realized What my sin truly cost I asked Him to forgive me To wash my sins away I told Him I would make Him Lord I'd serve Him every fay Now I am bound for heaven I pray that you are too Make Jesus Christ your Lord today His love will pardon you

God's desire is always my freedom, my deliverance, my salvation from the pitfalls of this world. He wants me to walk in health and in blessing. I am the one who does not listen. He always listens to me. I am the one who doesn't spend time with Him. He always wants to spend time with me. I am the one who does not follow His word. He always honors His word. I am the one who walks away from His leading. He is always walking beside me. This sin that constantly invades my thoughts is not His fault, it is mine because I do not let His thoughts invade my mind. He wants me to think on those things in His word, on blessing not just ordinary living, on victory not defeat, on health not sickness, on joy not sorrow, on peace not turmoil, on faith not doubt. It's time to harken to Him!
I could search a million miles across this earthly home I could seek out every passion that has captured a heart I could look for what is greatest According to this world But I'll never find a greater love than Jesus imparts CHORUS He stretched out His arms for me When they nailed Him to that tree He bled and died to wash my sins away What a precious gift of grace What a precious gift of grace No power is greater than the blood of the Lamb No hope us greater than His promise to man No one can hold Him back He's coming again No love is greater than the love of the cross I have seen how lives have been changed when a person looks to Jesus Turning from their sin and making Him Lord of all When they finally hear His voice and answer His call There's no power on earth that can do what Jesus does No power on earth can do what Jesus does No power on earth can do what Jesus does Chorus Bridge Nothing can separate me Nothing can separate me Nothing can separate me from His love (4X)
Hide me in your presence Hide me in your love Hide me from the plot of the enemy I can feel secure Lord In the shelter of your wings With all my heart I pray Hide me There’s a peace that comes from knowing the Lord has surrounded you. In His presence, the enemy can not come near. He cannot harm you, torment you, trouble you or tempt you. The enemy is held at bay by the presence of the Lord. God has a desire to always have you in His arms, but often we find ourselves prying those arms open and walking off on our own. Just as we see the nation of Israel wander away from the Lord and then back again, so we wander in and out of His protection. I can’t tell you how many times I have been curious how Israel could possibly forget how God delivered them from Egypt, or how He parted the Red Sea and the Jordan River. How could they constantly turn away from a God who did so many miracles, over and over again. Yet He has done many miracles in my life and before my eyes and I still sometimes walk away from His sheltering wings. I need to nestle myself in His love. I need to be captured by His everlasting joy. I need to be captivated by the boundless hope that only comes from knowing Him. And I need to reside in the peace that only comes from abiding in the vine. I pray you find that place as well, because there we are hidden from the enemies attacks. There we are safe! Colossians 3:3 King James Version 3 For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God.
I walked into the nursing home that day knowing very soon I would leave in tears I was here to visit a dear old friend who was slowly losing his mind And I was with his wife of over 50 years As we walked into his room I saw his children there three boys and one lovely daughter They were standing by his chair; the girl was sitting down, And they were sharing in a little bit of laughter He did not know those he’d known all his life He did not know his children; he did not know his wife As they tried to smile they were holding back the tears They had faded from his mind throughout the years. His wife walked up beside the bed and smiled and he returned a look of wonder and a sigh She said “How are you today my dear. I’ve missed you oh so much” And she reached out and gave a gentle touch The old man looked bewildered she was there. He said “Do I know you? Why do you care?” As she held back the tears, she said “I am your wife, And we’ve been together nearly all our lives” He did not know those he’d known all his life He did not know his children; he did not know his wife As they tried to smile they were holding back the tears They had faded from his mind throughout the years. She turned to leave the room, but they looked back to her life’s love And she uttered one more thing before she left the room “Jesus Loves You, this I know” were the final words she said And the old man’s eyes got big and he lifted up his head “Now Him I know! He’s the Savior of my soul! I gave my life to him so many years ago.” His wife came running up, and with a hug she kissed his cheek She said “Soon you will see him, and you’ll walk on golden streets” Yes, Him I know! He’s the one who makes me whole I will walk with Him in heaven, walk on streets of gold And even though I don’t know much down here on earth below Quite soon I’ll be in heaven because – Him I know! Many of us know a lot of people. We may know business owners who can help us figure out what product will best suit our needs. We may know plumbers who can come in a fix a clogged drain or hook up a new sink. We may know the mailman who faithfully delivers the mail every day. We may know electricians, and pastors and politicians and many other people who can help us get through life. We may have a bevy of friends who can come to our aid in times of trouble. It’s good to know a lot of people! But there is only one that matters/ Knowing Jesus as my personal Savior is the only way to get to Heaven. He said He is the way and that no one goes to the Father except through Him. We must know Jesus! Do you know Jesus today. If not, ask Him to forgive you of your sins. Make Him Lord of your life today. It is a decision you will never regret. I pray everyone who reads this knows Jesus!
