I Look To You

2 Corinthians 10:5
"We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ" (niv)

"Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ" (King James Version)

I stumbled on the following lyrics by Tim Smith whilst flipping through the praise and worship songs this morning. I really like the lyrics because 2 Corinthians 10:5 has a new meaning to me and this song helps me put into perspective of looking at Jesus.

Even with these symptoms of flu, fever and sore throat, it is very easy to imagine that my body will start to fall apart again so that's why I say "it has no power or dominion over me" to remind satan that it has no hold on me and to cast down all imaginations that the devil sets itself up against the word of God that is "By His stripes, I am healed".

I really like these lyrics because it then helps me then refocus on Christ, the Author and Finisher of my faith. Through the blood shed for me, I am now made 100% right with God again. Everything is alright between God and I. It's not just a noun faith but "faithing" this, believing this, ultimately because of the price He paid, shedding of His blood that Father God forgave our sins that allows me to come boldly before His throne and that's the power that flows through us for those who are believing. That's the blood of Jesus that flows through us for those who are believing. Believing, "faithing" and not just "I know" and then put aside. Sorry, as I write I am speaking to myself to help me understand grace all over again for there is power in His name, the name above all names, above all powers or principalities.

Wish I knew the tune. I can't find it on the internet.

I Look to You

(2 Cor. 10:5; Heb. 12:1,2)

Laying down my vain imaginations,
Focusing my thoughts upon You,
Lord,Meditating in Your loving presence,
Not allowing fear in anymore.
Capturing my wandering thoughts before You,
Casting them before my Lord and King,
Standing pure and holy in Your presence,
Looking through eyes that now are clean.

I look to You, the Author and the Finisher.
I look to You, the Lover of my soul.
You consume my heart and my vision,
and through Your love I am made whole
