2 Corinthians 5:17

Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come.

Dear Father-

We approach You today proclaiming that we are a new creation in You. We stand in awe of You knowing that You have overcome the world and have called us Your children. 

You say in Your Word that old things have passed away and a newness has come from You and thru You. A newness that shines through any storm or any rain. A newness that is bright and strong and endless. A newness that drenches us and refreshes us by the power of Your Holy Spirit. A newness that never tarnishes or loses its shine. A newness that changes our hearts from brokenness to openness to receive all the love, freedom, strength, authority, wisdom, and blessing from You. 

We ask You Father to place a double portion of Your Spirit among us to enable us to be the hands and feet of Jesus. Teach us Father to walk in Your anointing and that beneath our skin would reside the newness of life that comes from the power of The Cross. 

Help us Lord to accept the fact that the wait is over because the King is here and Your name is Jesus. Help us to hear the sound of Your redemption and sweetness of Your amazing grace today and each and everyday.

 

We are worlds, we are bodies
Empires of dirt and grace
Silhouettes and reflections
Caught in His holy flame

Beneath our skin
A new creation
The night is done
Our chains are broken
The time has come
The wait is over
The King is here
And His Name is Jesus

This is love
Bending skies to heal the broken
This is love
Bleeding life into the grave
Hear the sound
As our hearts cry out forever
Singing hallelujah
Breathing in a brand new world

We are shadows and portraits
Empires of light and clay
Images of our Maker
Sinners called out as saints

Beneath our skin
A new creation
The night is done
Our chains are broken
The time has come
The wait is over
The King is here
And His Name is Jesus

This is love
Bending skies to heal the broken
This is love
Bleeding life into the grave
Hear the sound
As our hearts cry out forever
Singing hallelujah
Breathing in a brand new world

No eye has seen
No ear has heard
No mind conceive
What heaven holds
But here and now
Let earth be found
With all our crowns
Upon Your Name

No eye has seen
No ear has heard
No mind conceive
What heaven holds
But here and now
Let earth be found
With all our crowns
Upon Your Name

You Are A New Creation in Him-
