Igniting the fire inside you

New Wine – Hillsong

So I yield to You and to Your careful hand

When I trust You I don’t need to understand

 

Make me Your vessel

Make me an offering

Make me whatever You want me to be

I came here with nothing

But all You have given me

Jesus, bring new wine out of me

 

In the crushing

In the pressing

You are making

New wine

In the soil, I

Now surrender

You are breaking

New ground


We all make choices

We strive for answers

Are you gonna follow your heart and listen to the One who knows?

We all have problems

And we can’t solve them

Forgive me when I say

Everything will be okay

Lean on Him

Choices

Answers

Decisions to be made

Your past will surely fade

 

It’s all your choice

You are what you feel you are

Look in that mirror and claim your beauty

 

And sometimes loved ones say hurtful things

Sometimes your friends don’t understand the happiness inside you that gives you wings

Sometimes you are called to a higher purpose that you don’t understand

Sometimes you need to lean on your creator to hold your hand

And sometimes you just need to be left alone

It’s all right; hold on tight

Don’t give up the fight

 

Your situation is parallel to mine but opposite at the same time

We may not understand what the other person is going through, but I’m sure we can still relate

“My friends told me to this, but I don’t want to do that”

We all have feelings

We crave acceptance

Who is it that you want to please?

What is it that gives you love and security?

Where is your judgement?

Why do you feel sorrow?

And in this time, He’s said, “you’re mine”

When will you allow this to become your truth?

Lean on Him

Fire: Burning the old, igniting the new “I lay down my old flames. To carry your new fire today” – Hillsong

Do not be conformed to this world,[a] but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect. [Romans 12:2]


 

Have you heard about the miraculous story that recently happened in Thailand where 12 boys and a soccer coach who were trapped in a cave were rescued from volunteers and experts all over the world?

“Divers compared it to mountain climbing — but in tight, pitch-black spaces and buffeted by swirling floodwaters, towing a child.

They had to guide their charges through passages as narrow as a couple of feet, weighed down by bulky equipment. A diver in front led the way, with a boy tethered to him and another diver following behind.

Each arduous round-trip extraction took between nine and 11 hours.

The Thai navy SEALs added in a Facebook post: “We are not sure if this is a miracle, a science, or what.””

God’s miracles are everywhere we look and the air we breathe. As the world remains amazed by this miracle, I can’t help but ask the question: where has God been moving in your life? When has God dove through tight circumstances to rescue you from drowning in the water of sins and sorrow? When did God call people to save you from uncomfortable circumstances?

No matter the size (complex or simple), if we reflect on our lives, I believe we can discover that He has provided miraculous transformations inside all of us. Maybe He is working on a miracle for you right now. The same God that rescued 13 people after 9 days of no food, drink, or comfortable shelter can dwell inside of you, if you allow Him to and accept Him into your life.
