Hi there!

 

Welcome to Barah Ministries…a Christian Church based in Mesa, AZ…my name is Pastor Rory Clark.  A special greeting to our international audience…people who are listening to us in the four corners of the globe.  Grace to you and peace from our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!

 

There are many ways to learn about God, and one of those ways is through songs, which do a great job of communicating the truth of the Word of God.  Here at Barah Ministries, we are blessed to have one of the best songwriters, best singers, and best music producers, all wrapped up in a single package.  Her name is June Murphy, and her songs are amazing at communicating truth.

 

Today you’ll hear a song from June’s third album…the Calling You to Freedom album…today’s song is…TAKE MY HAND.

 

TODAY’S SONG

Take My Hand

 

A couple of my favorite bible verses are in First Peter, Chapter 5…Verses 6 and 7…

 

FIRST PETER 5:6

Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may promote you at the proper time…

 

FIRST PETER 5:7

…slamming all your cares on His back, because God cares for you.

 

I like these verses for two reasons.  First of all, because “He cares for you” is a Greek idiom…an expression that does not really translate easily into English…“He cares for you” is the best the translators could do…what it means in the Greek of the New Testament is that God considers your problems to be His responsibility.  I love that!  Thanks Lord!  The other reason I like these verses is because God is given body parts to help us understand His attitude toward us.  He wants to hold our hands.

As believers in Christ, we are encouraged to sit comfortably in the mighty hand of God.

TAKE MY HAND

June Murphy

 

Here’s June Murphy to sing a song that tells us all about it from God’s perspective…the song is TAKE MY HAND.

 

TAKE MY HAND

 

Listen up beloved children

Hear what the Spirit has to say

The Christian Way of Living

“The Zoe Life”

Is lived by having faith

 

TAKE MY HAND

 

You’re filled with the Holy Spirit

Walk in good works divine

Know that you’ve been forgiven

As you redeem the time

 

TAKE MY HAND

 

Take My hand

Take My hand

Take My hand

 

 

TAKE MY HAND

 

I am the Lord

Your God Almighty

I’ll make you stand

 

TAKE MY HAND

 

Beware…your self-sufficiency

Keeps Me at arms length

You must choose to use your free will

To make use of My strength

 

TAKE MY HAND

 

The strength to live the ZOE life

The life I’ve given you

Don’t be deceived by the enemy

I’m in union with you

 

TAKE MY HAND

 

Take My hand

I’ll make you stand

It is My plan

To strengthen you

 

TAKE MY HAND

 

Take My hand

I’ll make you stand

Please understand

I’m here for you

 

TAKE MY HAND

 

Take My hand

Take My hand

 

 

TAKE MY HAND

 

Yes, I am God omnipotent

No power greater than Mine

Apply the truth I give to you

Absolute truth sublime

 

TAKE MY HAND

 

The world’s wisdom is death to you

I’ve resurrected you from the dead

There’s a much-more life to be lived

Choose My wisdom…use your head

 

TAKE MY HAND

 

‘Cause you’re only wise in My wisdom

You’re only strong in My strength

My armor is your protection

Put your plans aside

Think what I teach you to think

 

TAKE MY HAND

 

Take My hand

I’ll make you stand

It is My plan

To strengthen you

 

TAKE MY HAND

 

Take My hand

I’ll make you stand

Please understand

I’m here for you

 

TAKE MY HAND

 

Take My hand

I’ll make you stand

I’ll bless you in all you do

 

TAKE MY HAND

 

Take My hand

I’ll make you stand

Victory’s yours

You know it’s true

 

TAKE MY HAND

 

Take My hand

I’ll make you stand

No weapons formed

Will weaken you

 

TAKE MY HAND

 

Take My hand

I’ll make you stand

Darkness won’t

Envelop you

 

TAKE MY HAND

 

Take My hand

I’ll make you stand

TAKE MY HAND!

 

In Isaiah, Chapter 41, Verse 10, the Lord says to Israel, and He says to His believers…

 

ISAIAH 41:10

“Do not fear, for I am with you…do not anxiously look about you, for I am your God.  I will strengthen you…surely I will help you…surely I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.”

 

God is always asking us to take his hand, and we’d do well to listen to Him!  He strengthens us, he helps us, and He upholds us.  Thank you June for letting us know God’s perspective in this matter.   Thank you Lord for your all-powerful hand.

 

PSALM 95:1

O come, let us sing for joy to the Lord…

Let us shout joyfully to the rock of our salvation.

 

We dedicate the closing moments of our lesson today to anyone watching or to anyone listening who no longer wants to live under the slavery and the rulership of God’s enemy, Satan…to anyone who does not have a relationship with the One and Only God…the God who loves you unconditionally…the faithful One…the one who forgive all of your sins…the One who wants to make you His possession…the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  Acts, Chapter 2, Verse 21 says…

 

ACTS 2:21

‘And it shall be that everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.’

 

Right now, you can call on the name of the Lord by telling God the Father that you believe in His Son, and that’s the moment of eternal life for you.  Believing in the Lord Jesus Christ is the best and most important decision you can make in your lifetime.  A simple five-word request gets you to heaven…“Father, I believe in Christ.”  For a thief being crucified next to Jesus, it was a nine word request…Luke, Chapter 23, Verses 42 and 43…

 

LUKE 23:42-43

And the repentant thief was saying, “Jesus, remember me when You come into Your kingdom!”//And Jesus said to him, “Truly I say to you, today you shall be with Me in Paradise.”

 

Let today be the day you stop putting off the best decision of your life. You won’t ever regret believing in the Lord Jesus Christ and counting on Him to accomplish your salvation.  Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ…and you will be saved!  Then, get to know Him!  Grow, within the sphere of His grace, in the knowledge of the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  In John, Chapter 3, Verse 36, the Lord Himself says…

 

JOHN 3:36

“He who believes in the Son has eternal life (the resurrection life) right at that moment…but he who does not obey the command to believe in the Son will not see the resurrection life, but the wrath of God (the Lake of Fire) abides on him.”

 

Come on out of slavery to Satan and into the freedom of being a bond-servant to God…living the resurrection life.
