Worship Wednesday…I Am No Victim

I am no victim, I live with a vision
I’m covered by the force of love
Covered in my Savior’s blood
I am no orphan, I’m not a poor man
The kingdom’s now become my own
And with the King I’ve found a home

He’s not just reviving
Not simply restoring
Greater things have yet to come
Greater things have yet to come

He is my Father, I do not wander
If His plans for me are good
If He’ll come through like He should
‘Cause He is provision and enough wisdom
To usher in my brightest days
To turn my mourning into praise

He’s not just reviving
Not simply restoring
Greater things have yet to come
Greater things have yet to come

I am who He says I am
He is who He says He is
I’m defined by all His promises
Shaped by every word He says
Oh I am who He says I am
He is who He says He is
I’m defined by all His promises
Shaped by every word He says
Oh-oooh!…

Oh I’m no victim, I live with a vision
I’m covered by the force of love
Covered in my Savior’s blood
I am no orphan, I’m not a poor man
The kingdom’s now become my own
And with the King, I have a home
He is my Father
He is provision and enough wisdom
I am no victim

The Shalom of God

About a month ago, I started meeting with a random mix of people who had been studying Hebrew, the Torah, and Jewish culture. I have always been interested in Jewish traditions and have learned about it at a very surface level. I was so grateful that a few of my friends shared with me about this group. It couldn’t have come at a better time.

This year has been a little hard. It hasn’t been my normal hard where I have crazy natural, tangible circumstances to deal with. This year has been more of a spiritual fight. I tell people that I don’t normally attribute much to the enemy, but he for sure has come for me this year. Much of the time I feel as though he is winning.

This battle has been playing out in my thought life like never before. As my birthday approaches, I am feeling a shift coming. It’s interesting because it falls right before the beginning of the Jewish new year. This gathering together with believers who are digging into the depths of the Torah and how Jesus actually lived has definitely helped to usher in this shift I’ve been sensing.

Honestly, I have been wading in a lack of peace. I have felt such unrest and discontent and a bit doubtful in several areas of my life. It’s not a super fun space to be in.

At our basic definition of the word, peace is quiet or a lack of disturbance. In Hebrew, words have such deeper meanings than we have translated them to mean. Peace is the word Shalom, but it goes far beyond our idea of peace. Peace is actually only a small part of true Shalom.
