When heaven meets earth, I am helped, Lord

“There is no one like the God of Israel.
    He rides across the heavens to help you,
    across the skies in majestic splendor.
The eternal God is your refuge,
    and His everlasting arms are under you.
He drives out the enemy before you;
    He cries out, ‘Destroy them!’ ~ Deuteronomy 33:26-27, NLT

“Stay alert! Watch out for your great enemy, the devil. He prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour. Stand firm against Him, and be strong in your faith. Remember that your family of believers all over the world is going through the same kind of suffering you are.

“In His kindness, God called you to share in His eternal glory by means of Christ Jesus. So after you have suffered a little while, He will restore, support, and strengthen you, and He will place you on a firm foundation. ~ 1 Peter 5:8-10, NLT

“The Lord your God in your midst,
The Mighty One, will save;
He will rejoice over you with gladness,
He will quiet you with His love,
He will rejoice over you with singing.” ~ Zephaniah 3:17, NKJV

You, Lord, are Just a Breath Away

Father, You are sovereign. You are mighty … You are good. Your faithfulness is a sure place I can cling to and rely upon. When I cry out, You hear me — heaven meets earth and I am helped. Always.

All my life You have been faithful to me. You are just a breath away, a word spoken and You race through the heavens to help me.

Some may think that is a silly notion, but I know through experience and by faith that this is true. The clouds are the dust of Your feet as You walk on the wings of the wind. You are my God and my King — a very present help in trouble. The eyes of my heart recognize You drawing near when heaven meets earth as a result of my tears.

when heaven meets earth

You are my God, earnestly I will seek You. My heart and flesh cry out to You in this dry and thirsty land. Oh, Lord! There is none to compare to You — in Your presence is fullness of joy.

Because You have been my help, therefore in the shadow of Your wings I will rejoice. My soul follows close behind You; Your right hand upholds me.

And when heaven meets earth, You lift me from the pit of miry clay. You surround me as a shield and carry me close to Your heart. I become as a little child in her Father’s arms and I find rest from the difficult place.

Heaven Meets Earth … What a Wonderful Thought

You are worthy to receive all the glory, all the honor, and all the power forever. Your majesty takes my breath away … Your tenderness reaches deep into my soul and becomes my song in the night.

Oh, how I love You, Lord. When heaven meets earth, I feel Your embrace, I receive Your peace, and I rejoice in Your love.

In the Name of Jesus, I pray,

Amen ~ let it be so
