Plugged In

Been livng powerless these days

Been living fatherless in my king’s

Kid syndrome that’s been clinging to me strong,

Most of my problems and equations come down

To life without fascination and satisfaction, been

Compromising my cover recently, been giving in

To my own propriety these days, been giving in

At night, tossing over the flossing of the sin that’s

Engrossing, been listening to all the wrong voices

Vexing and transgressing inside of me much,

Been telling myself I am so screwed up and

The drive to rebel is so easy as Hell paved

Pathways beneath me, no Jonathan Edwards

To save me, no 23 minute account to change

My face entirely, been living selfishly this time

In and out, been walking with a frown cause

I am feeling pretty cordless and powerless,

Plugged into the socket for all the wrong

Reasons, Lord, I miss the days of your

Power this very hour, I ask you in humiliy

What does it take to resist the hostility

And Pursue you with all my heart

The Power Of God

I feel like a powerless child with no arms and hands. I feel I have no ploy to reach the darkness around me. To pierce through it with something from heaven. I imagine myself setting people free with the words that come out of my mouth. But it feels like a make a wish foundation toss in the fountain.

I don’t say these things to render any false humility or sound like I have no clue what I am talking about. I am saying these things because the more I stare at the word and the promises of Jesus the more I see that it really takes giving Him everything to be able to “bear” “Handle” “embody” the power of God. We use words like “vessel of His glory.” Referring to committing ourselves to a lifestyle of what IHOP would call: prayer, fasting, deep and long meditation of the word and eating the scroll as Ezekial and John say. The scroll is bitter and sweet. It is the great and terrible Day of the Lord that we looking too. The culmination of darkness in a way we cannot imagine but a release of the potent Holy Spirit that will give us Revelation 12:10 “The power of our testimony through the blood of the lamb.”

I want to expand on this but to conclude. I leave you this ruckus. If it takes everything(strongly linked with the Sermon on the Mount lifestyle what will it take to reach a generation and set them free. Real freedom. Reel Isaiah 61:1-2.

Selah!
