We Will Never Be The Same!

At the start, He was there
He was there.
In the end, He'll be there
He'll be there.
After all our hands have wrought, He forgives!

Oh, the glory of it all is He came here for the rescue of us all
that we may live for the glory of it all.

All is lost...find Him there!
Find Him there.
After night, dawn is here!
Dawn is here.
After all falls apart, He repairs.

He is here for redemption from the fall
that we may live for the glory of it all!

After night comes the light. Dawn is here.
Dawn is here!
It's a new day.
Things will NEVER be the same...WE will NEVER be the same!

The glory of it all is YOU CAME HERE
for the RESCUE of US ALL for the glory of it all.
You are here for redemption for us all,
that we may LIVE for the glory of it all!

I have listened to this beautiful David Crowder song probably five times in the last two days. It is so powerful! We used to sing it in youth group all the time, but each time I listen to it, a new light is shed on these words.

He has been here from the start, and He'll be here til the end.
He forgives us and burns away the dross.
He came to RESCUE us from such a deadly peril!
When all is lost, when all is dark, HE IS THERE. No matter how dark it gets.
When everything falls apart, He repairs. He repairs.
And we will NEVER be the same.

Whatever is on your plate, whatever has been on your plate, whatever is going to be on your plate... the Lord is faithful. He will not tempt you beyond what you can bear, and even when it feels like you can't go on anymore, He promises to be our strength and our song, our Ultimate Comforter, and our hope. He commands us to come to Him if we are tired and weary, and He WILL give us REST. He commands us to cast ALL our anxiety on Him because He cares for us AND He will never let the righteous fall.

Look over what you've been through in your life. Has God ever NOT been faithful? You're here, aren't you? He has such a big purpose for you! You were NEVER made to just take up space. You were NOT created to simply try to survive instead of living. He came that we may have life and have it ABUNDANTLY. He is a big God, and He has big plans for his beloved sons and precious daughters. You do NOT serve a mediocre God.

Whether it is a physical ailment, terminal disease, two steps away from an emotional breakdown, a broken heart, a bitter spirit, overwhelming loneliness, or anything else...

And He is faithful.

The Lord your God is with you. He is mighty to save.
He will take great delight in you.
He will quiet you with His love and rejoice over you with singing.
Zephaniah 3:17 :)
